Ah, the 4th of July is quickly approaching…the celebration of Independence, freedom, summer barbecues and, of course, heading to the beach. Summertime, you are a benchmark for so many things. ‘Tis the season of road trips, tan lines, and ridiculously muggy commutes home. Summer pros? Surfing lessons, lighter hair, and loads of Vitamin D. Summer cons: shaving your legs daily, reapplying that sunscreen, and the constant schlepping back and forth.
Summer-wear in the concrete jungle is a fun one to watch in a city like New York. Heavy denim is replaced by maxi dresses, and wearing blazers becomes dated, claiming bikini tops as the outfit method of choice. Let’s leave those bikini tops for the beach shall we? and in the same breath pull out the bags appropriate for both infiltrating these streets and your favorite summer haunts. And while you enjoy your lemonade, bonfires, and s’mores on your preferred summer weekend of choice be it mountain highs, lake sails, or ocean breezes, it’s important to carry the right tote around, right? The one that will carry your sunglasses, the charger, the book. Right!
Here are 6 totes for your perusing pleasure. The long weekend will be here before you know it. Break out those raffia shoes, forget about the threat of rain, and start dancing.
