How Fabulous are these Woven Bags?

How fabulous are these woven beach bags?  I like each one better than the next.  With the striped woven insert that you can pop out and tie to keep your belongs intact it is a winner in my books!  I would use them in the city almost as much as at the beach, perfect for a night out or running errands during the day.

How Chic is My Weekend Tote?

While I was searching for, and then buying, Bean boots for our boys, I  finally (!) bought the camo tote that I have been wanting.  I ordered it on a Sunday and it arrived, monogramed, on Wednesday!  Talk about amazing service!  It is the right size to carry everything I need, stands on its own and has a zip top.  I love it so much, I am going back for an all black with black initials to use as my work tote. On second thought, I may rethink the black initials and go with one of the really fun colors they offer…I will let you know what I decide… What do you think?

Navy Sweater

If you are following me on Instagram you know that I have been on a family vacation in Europe. It has been a world wind tour of two big cites, Paris and Rome and the gorgeous island of Capri in the middle for a little R&R.  To pack for the trip took a bit of planning as I didn’t want to bring too much.  I took one sweater that I wore on the plane and then wore in Paris in the mornings when it was cooler.  I had it just in case the evenings were cooler the rest of the trip but Capri and Rome were beyond hot!  It is the perfect weight and I like how it works well with pants or a dress.  I tied it around my waist or tucked it over my bag if it got too hot to wear it.

Suede Tassel Tote

I really want this totally impractical suede tote.  I say impractical because suede can either look horrible after lots of wear and tear or can get a wonderful patina and be like an yummy old pal. Either way I love the shape, color, size and the tassel tie. When I looked at the other colors and shapes from Loeffler Randall, I spied these fabulous braided lace-up sandals.  How cute are they??

Look-alikes: Straw Tote

Having just returned from our Spring Break, all I want to do is focus on warm weather accessories and clothing. I loved using my mothers straw tote in Florida and wanted to find something similar for myself.  When I started looking around I found these two look-alikes. For a straw tote that is going to get beaten up at the beach I think I can’t go wrong with the Sonoma Goods for Life Straw Tote.  What do you think?
