Beach Bags

I've been the world's worst blogger recently.  There are so many things going on around here.  We're busy, busy, busy.  Which I always say I would rather be than bored BUT jeese! I always get slammed with so much in a small amount of time. 

I've missed this little space of mine on the Internet so I'm hoping to be back here more often.  I'm cutting some time out for this blog!

I've been on the hunt for the perfect beach/pool bag for the summer!  My Nana used to call me the bag lady and I'm telling you, not much has changed.  I probably have more bags than I know what to do with but I always find a reason to need just one more!

Mom or not, when you head to the pool or the beach, you've got some stuff to pack!  Sunblock, a good book, towels, swim diapers, snacks, extra sunglasses, pool and sand toys...the list can go on and on and on. 

I've found some great bags this season. Now I just need to pull the trigger and buy one.  Or two.  We'll see.

I've been so unimpressed with anything Coach in years but they may have hit the nail on the head with their beach totes this year.   The Bleeker Tote is super roomie and I love the option of the two straps.  It comes in some great classic colors like Kelly green, a rain slicker yellow and navy.

Pottery Barn Kids has really improved their tote and diaper bag collection.  This is a diaper bag but as a Mom of a (relatively) new baby, the changing pad that is included and the extra pockets may come in handy.  There is plenty of room to throw in a towel or two and a few extras. I love this color combination.

Then there is the classic LL Bean Boat Tote.  It comes in 4 sizes.  Most importantly XL.  There are two strap lengths, I think 8 different color options and you can get it with or without a zipper.   I've had them in the past but it may be time to purchase one with Harvey monogrammed on it.

So what do you think?  Which will it be?

Your blog post is quite unique, grasping, and innovative with its content & readable quality. It has motivated me a lot in using environmentally friendly Jute Bag instead of plastic and paper bags.
