I was on the hunt for a beach tote.  But, I wanted to find something fun and cute to take to the beach but stylish.  So I did a quick search and came up with a few totes I thought fit the query.  All of these bags are by top designers and on the upper end of the $$$$ scale.  There is something about each one of them that makes them special.

The Kate Spade tote with words written I need A Vacation across the front is just fabulous.  The words have meaning because we all need a vacation and if you haven’t taken one please do.  It helps to clean the mind.  As my teacher would say clean out all the cobwebs.  Ok I didn’t know Hunter sold handbags.  I know them for their stylish wet boots.  Ok, I am behind on that.  But, this cute little metallic tote is sure to catch a few glances.  Love the flash.  The next one is by Onda De Mar.  I love the way this one looks like vintage crocheting and it has a drawstring lining that comes up a bit and closes the tote so all your little goodies don’t fall out…clever.  And Miss Tory Burch not more to say so fab it looks more like a handbag so it really serves a dual purpose.  And my all time favorite Coach.  I am such a Coach fan love all their stuff.  It’s classy, and the quality is undeniable with a touch of  flash all in one.  This is the one I purchased.  I love it because it’s really over-sized.  You can use it as a tote and pack lots of stuff in it.  It’s great if you have kids because you can stuff lots of their stuff in it as well.  This is one of their Limited Edition totes so if you want this one you might want to hop over and get it.  It is sure to sell out!    Hope this helps if you are looking for a designer tote to carry to the beach this summer.  Or maybe you are one of those lucky ones who live on the beach year round and  get to start using yours now.

Good Luck on your search.

Thanks Melissa!
I do the same! I am always on your blog and if you comment I go over there again. You always have great inspiration on both of your blogs.
It’s not hard it’s easy with the graphics. I will send you an email.

When I get bored of working I always cruise around on your blog looking at older posts – you always find & put together great graphics – I need to work on this.

The Hunter and the Tory Burch are my fave. I use one I bought on Venice Beach and a Jcrew basket Tote. Great finds.
