This past weekend Vlad and I attended a wedding on the west coast of Florida. While we had beautifully sunny skies, the thermometer was reaching over 90 degrees at 6:00 pm. That means two things: we were sweating profusely and summer has arrived. Living in Florida, which is known as the sunshine state, means we have an easy time getting to the beach no matter where in the state we are. Truth be told, Vlad and I are not huge beach goers, but we will use the beach and resort pools from time to time.

I have never had it in me to buy a strictly beach tote. The reason is because of what I said above, not being a huge beach fan. But I feel like it may be time to spruce up my beach bag department, which is lacking right now. Raffia and straw are perfect materials for beach bags. Designers from Balenciaga, to Jimmy Choo, to more contemporary designers like Antik Batik are making perfect beach totes.

But how much are you willing to spend on a beach bag? (more…)

Now that I am feeling quite a bit more settled in this new city, I am able to get back to my normal routine. One of the things I love doing is starting my morning with a nice run or a long walk. It is a good way to clear my head and gear up for the day. Living four blocks from the beach makes it easy to transform my morning run into a run by the beach. Not bad huh? As I am running, I’ve noticed that there are plenty of people already out and heading to the beach.

Mara Hoffman Necklaces Beach Tote

While some folks tote a great bag, others look like they haven’t replaced their bag in years, maybe even a decade. Hey, I’m not here to judge, but there are some wonderful options out there that won’t even set you back all that much. Take the Mara Hoffman Necklaces Beach Tote for example. This bright, print canvas tote is embroidered throughout and has a drawstring top. Double handles are an ideal option for a beach bag and the snap-flap pocket is a crucial compartment when storing, say, your keys. I am a huge fan of this bag and since it is on sale, I actually like it even more. Buy through Shopbop for $114.
