Let’s Talk About Bags!
As if we needed another reason to have a different category of bag. Can a girl (or guy) really have too many bags? Not in my book at least. Bags are timeless, practical and amazing. They have always been something I have loved and collected. It started when I would steal bags out of my mom’s amazing collection (should I do a closet tour of my mom’s?? — comment below!). And now, the warmest months are here…and have no signs of going anywhere anytime soon…so let’s talk about poolside bags!
Poolside bags seems to be trending this year. They are particularly trendy. I don’t know if they got more trendy when wicker / picnic style bags weren’t going out of season from last year or what, but I am ok with it. It is nice to finally have cute options to bring with you to the pool or to the beach for these long days that I am dying of heat in. I have a few different style bags I’m into for this occasion and am curious which ones you respond best too also!
Bag #1: Poolside Straw Bags
My top three poolside straw bags.
I wore this Cult Gaia straw bag recently and thought it was the perfect bag for a casual day hanging by the pool — preferably at a hotel pool where they provide a towel because this bag does not fit a towel lol. The point is, it looks great and if you need limited items it is a great option!
This Mar Y Sol Aspen bag is the perfect relaxed fit and comfortable for bringing to both the beach or a pool. It is lightweight and not structured so you can carry it around seamlessly.
Moda Operandi Bags
Moda Operandi, an online retailer, came out with exclusive poolside straw bags. They are customized and would be fun(ny) gifts to give to friends with the sayings on them.

Bag #2: Oversized Beach Bags
My top three beach bags for your out of office days.
This Zimmermann tote is the perfect accessory for your beach day. It is structured, while having a soft material, so it is comfortable and large enough to fit all of your belongings. This is an item you’ll have forever. photo credit: Shopbop
I love the structure of this Truss bag. It is actually one of my favorites as far as beach bags go. I typically like to pack a towel, a blanket and a few other belongings like sunscreen and snacks and this bag is easy to reach in and grab whatever I need.
This Naghedi bag is called the St. Barth’s which really doesn’t get chicer than that? Who doesn’t want to look like they are in St. Barth’s and who doesn’t want to feel like they are? This is the perfect bag for this type of an occasion. It comes in this blue-grey color and also a pink. The blue is personally my favorite but both are so cute! It really just depends what color you like more in general.
Which style beach or poolside bag is your favorite this season? Do you have one you swear by? I love the idea of investing in one bag that I can keep forever. Oddly, poolside bags really can be timeless. Let me know your thoughts on this in the comments below! I’d love to hear from you.
