My Beach Bag (+ Clava Giveaway!)


Allow me to introduce my beach bag.

I guess I should really call it my beach/pool/park/outdoor activity bag since it’s used all the time in all of those places. Roomy enough to fit everything you need, but not too bulky to schlep around, this bad boy is my warm weather fave, and I’ve used it like crazy on our recent jaunts to Palm Springs.

Incoming Palm Springs photo onslaught!

I’m slightly enamored with the Wellie Travel Tote for many reasons, but let’s get real, OF COURSE I love it. It’s navy and white striped! (We all remember my fondness for stripes, right?) However, if you aren’t a fan of stripes, the Wellie Tote comes in two great metallics, gold and silver.


My friends at Clava have graciously offered a Wellie Tote for two lucky whoorl readers! Leave a comment on this post telling me which Wellie Tote color you prefer, and you will be entered to win a Wellie Tote of your color choice. Contest ends Friday, June 17th at 6pm PST. Good luck!

UPDATE: Here are some answers to your questions in the comments. The striped dress is from Madewell, the straw sun hat is from Forever 21 (it was around 10 bucks!), and the photos were taken with my iPhone using Instagram.



  1. I love the navy stripes! I could totally see myself working that gold one too though, adorable!

  8. I really could go either way!! Stripes are too cute but I could love on the gold too!

  9. I love the navy and white stripes as well! Looks like that’s a popular one. I also like the silver one!

  10. For sailing Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard (my summer vacation!), navy and white stripes are the way to go, if not expected. But that gold one would be ohsoperfect if I were to be on a yacht off of St. Tropez.

  11. I like them all. :)

    I’ve been on a big gold kick lately, though, so my vote is for gold!

  12. Love the stripes!

  13. Navy & white- they just scream SUMMER!

    I would LOVE that gold metallic tote! As an avid Palm Springs vacationer too and mommy to 2 boys with a 3rd on the way — that could fit all our pool gear!

    P.S. About PS — Would you be willing to share the link to the rental house you rent in PS (looks beautiful) or the hotel(s) you favor? I was in love with the Parker and the Viceroy for many years, but now with all the kiddos, I think we’ve graduated to something slightly more “family-friendly” (yet still stylish?). Any suggestions?

  312. The navy and white stripes, of course!
