Perhaps many of you can’t wait to head to the beach or simply seek out the warm summer sun instead? I don’t know about you, but some serious Vitamin D is calling my name.

I’ve picked some of my favorites totes from hot spots like Nordstrom, Everything But Water, Anthropologie, and my current obsession–Draper James. Reese Witherspoon, you are my southern, lady-friend hero. Is there nothing you can’t do?
As you can tell there are so many adorable choices out there! Pick one that best represents your personality and style.
1.} Flamingo Straw Tote– A simple and tropical bag that gives any outfit or swimsuit a pop of color.
2.} Blush Straw Bag– I love the unique body style and handle on this bag! Its subtle color promotes a modern but natural flair.
3.} Milagro Circular Handbag– This bag really stood out to me because of its unexpected shape and the adorable touch of detail in the pompoms.
4.} Ague D’ Mar Tote– Now I know this is a bit of a wild choice, but it’s so quirky and fun! Big brother is watching. Just saying. Where are the built in cameras?
5.} Totes Y’all Vanderbilt Tote– You can never go wrong with a bold script canvas bag, especially one that features the signature Draper James magnolia-shaped hardware. Did I mention Reese Witherspoon is my southern sister from another mother?
6.} Mirabel Tote– This tote just screams beach party! I love its traditional shape that is woven with colorful cotton.
7.} Alice + Olivia Stace Face Straw Tote– This bag is a total girly-girl accessory. I love a dramatic bag with a whole lot of personality. I wish my eyelashes were that long!
8.} Watermelon Cool It Y’all Tote– Summertime warrants something covered in watermelons or pineapples–perfect for making a fashion statement and adding flair to your poolside attire.
9.} Kayu Piñata Tote– What a dramatic and playful tote to carry on your arm! The striped texture of the tote is soft to the touch and is large enough to stuff a bunch of pool/beach toys inside.
10.} Fallon & Royce’s Tote– Another script canvas tote but its clever graphic statement, that makes me smile, is made out of sparkly beads!
11.} Mar y Sol ‘Ibiza’ Woven Tote– Now if this does scream, “I’m made for summer!”- I don’t know what does! This is definitely one of my favorites and is on my wish list.
12.} Tory Burch Gemini Link Tote– No woman can go wrong with a Tory Burch bag! I love this orange and navy color combo and pattern, and the fact that it is waterproof. This style of a tote can also easily transition from work to play.
13.} Lilly Pulitzer Bohemian Tote– This tote is on the smaller size, but it certainly makes a punch with its rich, bright tones!
