Travel Tote

As we explored the island last week, I was so glad that I had last-minute picked up this woven tote right before our trip. Initially I bought it as a beach bag, but it quickly became my go-to for daytime around the island. As we walked the town, ran down to the beach or just grabbed lunch I could just throw everything in there (…and then some. This bag is huge. Cameras, sunglasses, wallets, a small litter of puppies. It’s all in this bag. )
This was one of the two lucky pairs of shorts that I packed last week. I chose wisely — a pair of cut-offs and this tailored pair of shorts. I loved this look with the striped sweater, it was perfect for a day of roaming around with nothing on our agenda. And now I’ve made myself want to hop on a plane and head back right now. My suitcase is only partially unpacked so I think this might be a sign. 
(Sale Alert: LOFT is having a 50% off sale today! Use code FIFTY.)

    I love this oversize tote! It is a great beach bag–and probably really helpful traveling because it holds so much!

    I love this look, I’m partial to breton stripes and I love how you paired it with the light blue chinos. This look is perfect for summer!

  7. Love the look, I took a giant straw beach bag with me to Puerto Rico last month and it served the exact same purpose, so clutch!

  60. Roaming in the sunshine with no agenda sounds like heaven right about now! Those cornflower blue shorts are SO stinkin’ adorable, might need them even though the midwest only sees about two months of shorts-weather. Worth it, haha!

    What a cool preppy-casual outfit! Perfect for sightseeing if the weather isn’t too warm. I picked up a Longchamp printed Le Pliage in a sale years ago and this has become my beach/sightseeing bag on each and every holiday since. It fits everything but the kitchen sink and looks really pretty as well.
