Beach season is right around the corner. My excitement knows no bounds. Here’s five great bags that are rugged enough for a day at the beach, but slick enough to go from the sandy beaches to the sidewalks of Portland.
6 Pocket Market Tote from AU Bags
Roomy enough to stash sunblock, a towel and even a game of paddleball.
Printed Tote from Blocked By Brenna
Handcut, handprinted and sewn in Scarborough, it’s machine washable so it’s super shore-friendly.
L.L.Bean Boat & Tote
The classic haul available in any size, shape and monogram your little heart desires.
Octopus Tote from Seabags
Get ready to geek out. The octopus is a drawing from the official report of the Challenger Expedition and the lining is printed with handwritten notes from Charles Darwin.
Rainbow Woven Straw Basket from Piece Shop
If you don’t have a straw or wicker bag for summer, you’re just not prepared. Bonus points for one in a colorful weave.
