Totes Adorbs! (& Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!)

May 25, 2017

I love summery totes!  And not just for a beach day.  A summer tote bag is the perfect casual summer anytime carry-all. I’ve been looking to buy myself a new one and there’s just too many adorable ones to choose from.  Want to help me decide?!


Soooo many “totes adorbs” totes!!!!

Which one would you pick?!

And if my decision wasn’t already hard enough, I just found out all of these totes just went on sale at Nordstrom!

A fun look from last week’s link up … Sarah of Sew Sarah R looks totally adorable in this striped jumpsuit!

How’s your week going, Dolls?  Mine has been crazy busy with the end of school madness … finals, grades, paperwork, graduation.  But really looking forward to having more blog time soon!

Important reminder: Nordstrom is having their Half Yearly Sale now through June 4th!

Stay fun, stay fierce! Don’t forget to link up any style blog or Instagram post!

    I adore a summer tote! You have some fantastic choices – I’ve pinned a couple to my summer special in Pinterest. I love the one covered in pom poms.

    I’d be tempted with two. I’d go for one neutral to go with anything and one bright to go with neutrals. Oh well in my dreams. They are lovely and great investment pieces ultimately.

    I love all your picks! That pink one is my fave. All of these are perfect of the summer season. Thanks for the link up!

    I have been seeing totes everywhere lately! My favorite is the solid pink one, but a neutral tote would go with anything.

    I love that these festive totes are so trendy right now! Love all of your picks, especially the one with the rows of pom poms! SO pretty!

    Tassels and polka dots and pompoms…oh my!! I’m afraid I’m not going to be much help in this dilemma of yours, dearest Dawn; as you said, they’re ALL “totes adorbs!!” The neutral straw bags are super on-trend right now (and super-versatile, too)…but as I’m currently having a love-affair with pink, the bright woven tote with those multi-coloured tassels (from Nordstrom) is tugging at my heartstrings. The first one to REALLY pop out at me, though?? That white-and-gold-embroidered Antik Batik bag with the yellow fringe!! Gorgeous!! Looking forward to seeing your final choice…and wishing you luck with the all the end-of-the-school-year madness!! XOXO

  • Reply Debbie Stinedurf May 27, 2017 at 3:57 pm

    So many totes…so little time! Anything with bright colors and a funky pattern is a win in my book. 🙂

    These totes are all so cute! I love the ones with the tassels!
