I had the first of several destination weddings this past weekend, and when I’m traveling to resorts with pools, a great tote is essential. Not only does it elevate your outfit to resort chic, but it gives you room for all those books you’ve been meaning to read—and of course, sunscreen. This one pictured by Adornlee is so roomy, I even managed to fit my whole camera bag in it. And when your tote looks this good, you’re going to want to get a photo. Whether you’re road tripping, flying off to exotic islands, or walking to your neighborhood pool, here are my favorite totes that offer form and function—even as a bonus carry-on.
*A little note—sadly my exact beach tote sold out extremely fast, but they will be getting more back in stock in April. Feel free to leave a little comment on this post with your email, and I’ll make sure you are notified when they return. In the meantime, here is a similar tote by Adornlee that is half the price of mine because it doesn’t have the leather straps.
