And the series just keeps rolling. Mother’s Day is always in the middle of spring heading into summer, so giving a your mom a bag that she can take to the beach for the upcoming summer is a very good idea. Thanks to Saks I have found two different but both adorable Beach Totes. Let’s start off with the Juicy Couture Zuma Beach Tote:

Juicy Couture Zuma Beach Tote and Prada Canvas Tote
The reason why this is the perfect beach tote is because it is triple the fun. The tote (pictured left) includes a cotton canvas beach sack which is cleverly carried inside of the coordinating transparent plastic tote. As a little add-on, Juicy throws in a leather trim clear wallet. The cotton sack has drawstring and tie closure and sequin detailing while the plastic tote has leather straps and canvas trim. The canvas bag measures 16″H X 16½”5L X 10½W and the plastic tote 13″H X 9″L X 10″W. This beach tote exemplifies young and simple summer fun, and can be yours for $128 at Saks Fifth Ave. While the Juicy Couture zuma tote features plastic to fend off the water and make it more “beach friendly”, my next pick would need to be given a little better care.

I can’t help but love the new Prada Canvas Tote (right). Now don’t think I’m naïve, but I have seen celebrity mommies toting this bag around, even at the beach (I’ll look for the picture again if you don’t beleive me!) The Prada Canvas Tote is a water-colored canvas tote bag with ostrich trim and shoulder straps. This one has a boat on the front and the colors just make me happy. The bag measures 13″H X 16″L X 5¾”W and is avaliable at Saks for $860. Now, if the bag you don’t want the bag you buy your mom to get ruined in any way, I’d say go with the Juicy. Celebrities can buy a new Prada bag every week, and I’m sure that is why they don’t care if if gets a little bit of damage. But that doesn’t mean you couldn’t buy the Prada Canvas tote for your mother as an everyday tote!

    The totes are cute but you really need to check out this ring company I just found:

    I want one of their custom stamped rings with all 3 of my kids names put on them. Great for gifts and lots of room for customization!

    These look like what you’d find at the bottom of a thrift store bin. (ipad)
