Here is a reader request I received via email:
I love your blog and check it obsessively throughout the day. I’m planning a beach vacation with my nearly two-year-old daughter next month and was looking for a stylish, large beach bag to tote all of our stuff (and possibly carry as a purse/day bag thereafter). Any recommendations?
Gap has some great large canvas totes available right now. The middle one above is $39.95 and the two on the left and right are also $39.95. Take an additional 35% off with code GAP35. They’re large enough to haul everything to the beach, but they’re also pretty enough to use as handbags later too.
Another classic option is an LLBean or Lands’ End tote. I do love a monogram! LLBean makes open top and zip-top versions (both are available in several different sizes). Lands’ End’s extra large canvas tote ($35.50) is similar.
Have fun at the beach!
