When selecting a tote bag for the beach there are so many to choose from…here are my top five picks:
1. Classic Canvas Tote Bags- you can't go wrong here, they come in tons of colors and sizes, with monogramming too!
2. Jute tote bags…I love this one with the anchor from Ballard Designs…jute bags are very lightweight but hold a lot of cargo!
3. For a European look, go for a large woven french market basket like this…these are great because the sand falls right off- they look good at the beach, the pool, the market, very versatile.
4. Colorful beach mesh bags- wonderful for carrying buckets and pails, since they are made of woven plastic, they are very washable and water-resistant.
5. Designer beach bags- like this one from Vera Bradley- it even has a matching towel!
Whatever you choose, I always say "go big or go home", I would rather lug one very large bag with everything to the beach than have to make several trips! Happy Summer!
