You are absolutely right - a good quality tote is a closet must. I, myself, always go for the stripes because it feels fun and beachy!

Cute! I did a tote post on bags from Aldo & there was a striped one too that I love so naturally #2,11 & 13 are my faves!

Nuha said...

My favorite tote is a cognac leather one from Zara. I've worn it so much it's literally falling apart. I usually would go ahead and buy something else, but I'm actually thinking about buying the exact same one since I love it so much!

Shannon Willardson said...

I love 3 and 10! They're both super cute and I love the pops of color they give!


Darcy said...

Oh, man I love #10 and all the brights at the bottom! Trying to decide if I need to invest in one since my pool this summer is pretty much a 10 step walk out my apartment door. But, hey, I need to carry my stuff somehow... right!?

Thanks for sharing!
