Why should it be so difficult to pick out a beach tote when I’m not exactly using it all the time? Well for these reasons:
- Deciding if I want sand to fall through it or for sand to keep out (so zipper top or mesh material)
- It has to be OK getting smashed in my suitcase when I travel
- It has to match/compliment my swimsuit(s)
I finally found one at a reasonable price that I liked – #1 (here). I took advantage of the free monogramming and added a “D” in gold metallic thread – cause I’m a little bling-bling like that!

Diana Elizabeth had a lovely J.Crew bag from years ago, like back before it was really trendy cool now and she was sad when the leather handle finally broke. She had it for years, but that just shows, that’s good quality right there.
