The Cutest Summer Totes

I might not know much about a lot of things, but I do know that I’ve never met a tote bag I didn’t love. My favorites are ones that can get me from the beach to a work meeting to dinner without missing a beat. Here are a few that I’m loving for this summer.

  1. Bagging Rights: To say I love these canvas bags from Bagging Rights is a complete understatement! They’re incredibly durable, full of pockets, and can be monogrammed! Love!

2. Frances Valentine: This brand always gets it right. This is such a whimsical bag for summer and will stand out from all the rest.

3. St Barths Mini Tote from Tuckernuck: Sometimes a darling handbag is just what the day calls for and this one is the cutest!

4. Carrie Forbes X J.Crew Jenna Tote: This woven tote is just going to make you stop at the beach, no matter what the plans for your day really are!

5. Breck & Grier: When I saw this tote and heard the story behind it, I couldn’t resist. The sweet collaboration will just get you!

6. J. McLaughlin: Why mess with a classic? This white leather tote with a crisp stripe is perfect for every summer occasion. And if you’d like to have it personalized, I know just the girl to do it for you.

I hope these cute bags put you in the mood for the sunny days ahead!
