beach baggage

This weekend my sorority is going on a date function to Daytona Beach! I am so excited to lay out and relax with my girls (and maybe have 1 or a few cocktails). It's supposed to be in the 80s and I am so ready for warm Florida weather that was so evasive over spring break! I've got my bathing suit but now I'm craving a new beach bag. I have a pink trimmed Vineyard Vines canvas tote that I've used for about 2 years now:

but I think I'm ready to invest in an update. I want to stick with a canvas material since its 1) easy to clean and 2) doesn't get too hot on sunny beach. I love this Ocean Life Patchwork Tote from VV but not sure if I want to get another of the same brand, even though it's a totally different style!

Here are some other options I'm contemplating, input is encouraged and appreciated!

Obviously The Lilly Pulitzer Shoreline Tote in either Chomp Chomp or the Florida print (go Gators!)


Also, I can't pass up this adorable Nautical Flag Initial Tote from Skipper Bags but I don't know if I like the flags that correspond with my initials!

For a more durable, washable, and definitely more economical purchase, I think the Vera Bradley Large Colorblock Tote is just perfect! 

And bonus points for this little cutie: This print is called Lilli Belle, just like my baby princess puppy andddddd it can be monogrammed for just $8 more!

While I can definitely just continue using my old bag, I plan to spend a lot of time this summer after graduation on the beach, so I think I can reward myself with something new and cute! Hoping everyone has a sunny weekend!



  1. I love all the brightly colored bags you showed! My favorite is the pink one at the bottom!

  2. I'm so jealous! I'm also loving the beach bag finds you have. :)

  3. I just got the Shoreline Tote in Chin Chin and it's perfect! It's also very easy to clean and is perfect for the beach or just to carry around!
