Folks, it is HOT, and the beach/pool is calling!  How’s your beach bag holding up?  We’ve been doing a little ‘window’ shopping, and found some fun tote options for mamas and kids too!

For Mom:

Reversible Canvas Beach Bag from Lands End, $49.50.  A little pricey, but it’s soft, oh-so-cute, and has enough room for everything you need for a day at the beach!  (Loving the beach pattern).
