As we inch closer to summer, outside activities become the norm: swimming, lying on the beach, backyard barbeques, romantic picnics (don’t we all wish), or playing with the kids in the park. These activities usually require a bit more planning, possibly different attire, and some warm weather must-haves (bottle of water, sunscreen, etc.). So, we have come up with a list of perfect summer bags that will fit all of your outdoor activity items and needs.
Tory Burch has the quintessential ‘chunky’ straw tote with an added bit of chicness a la the option of beautiful metallic silver or gold. Stock with your favorite magazines, a towel, your sunnies, and head to your favorite lounging spot.
If you happen to be going on a picnic and are at a complete loss where to find a picnic basket as opposed to those modern backpack looking things then hurry to Kate Spade to pick up their ‘Pack A Picnic Wine Tote.’ The compartments are big enough to hold your favorite bottle of vino and a few sandwiches or snacks.
Taking the kids to the park? Petunia’s pickle bottom ‘Sashay’ diaper bag might surprisingly become your favorite summer bag. This stylish take on the usually bulky diaper bag has a bold, season appropriate print, a bevy of interior pockets, and a changing pad.
Doing a little traveling this summer? Then you need this season’s travelling trend item: the backpack. Madewell has a cool-kid ‘transport rucksack’ made of softly worn leather. It might even bring back fond memories of that time you backpacked across Europe.
Taking a mini vacay with the girls, or perhaps your beau has surprised you with a weekend away. Avoid over-packing (though probably not truly possible) with J. Crew’s simple and adorable do-it-all ‘Rail and Wharf 48-Hour Duffel.’
