Pom poms and tassels turn simple straw beach totes into something special

Fun and frivolous, these straw beach totes are a day at the beach!


Straw beach totes evoke the best of casual summer living — breezy, bright and colorful. And, they are the perfect place to stash all of the beauty essentials I need for a day of fun in the sun… because looking great at the beach can be challenging (and I’m not just talking about how I look in a swimsuit!). The heat melts off my makeup, the humidity frizzes my hair, and keep a sunburn at bay is an ongoing battle.

With one of these cute straw beach totes, I’ve got plenty of room for everything I need to look my best in any situation – from running across the street in the morning to pick up an iced coffee, to those days that somehow morph into evenings lounging with friends and family.

This season, some of my fave straw beach totes are embellished with adorable details such as brightly colored, kitchy pom poms and trendy tassels. For even more fun-loving options, I found some of the best at Bloomingdales.

It’s only Thursday, but I am so ready for a day at the beach…

    I do like tassels. When I used to craft things I put them on everything! I like the one above with the bright colors the best.
