Poolside Totes

Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.45.10 PMWith snow still on the ground in the Northeast, I am dreaming of a warm weather escape. And, many of you will be taking a Spring Break in the weeks and months to come. Getting your beach wardrobe together is part of the fun and a cute beach/pool bag is something that can make your lounging all the more fun.

These beach bags by Poolside are clever and cheeky and super chic! They have a collection of phrases that you can select from or you can do something completely custom. Especially cute for a warm weather honeymoon, bachelorette party, destination wedding or birthday celebration.

I don’t know about you, but I dread trying on swimsuits…so, I relish selecting something from the comfort of my favorite chiar.Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.45.49 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.46.23 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.46.44 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.48.27 PMScreen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.47.06 PMThese bags may not be my first “beach tote rodeo”, but they sure are fun…..and that’s what you want to have in the sun!

A stylish beach bag is an accessory that you can use from now until Labor Day, meaning now is the time to buy!!

Here are 3 versions that I just love!

For a “goyard” twist on a straw bag, check out the Island Bag by Lindroth Designs in Palm Beach!

Hoping many of you find yourself poolside this month! If not in your own backyard, someplace totally fabulous! Bring on the sun!


Spring Break

Today when I pick up my boys from school, they will be on Spring Break! Our bags aren’t quite packed, but we don’t need much where we’re going.

I hope you’ll understand that I need to unplug. Otherwise, I might miss the sunsets or my boys creating a magnificent sand castle. And, of course, it’s probably not a good idea to blog while enjoying a margarita. Just saying.

Enjoy the view….wherever you are!
