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.

    Definitely the stripes.

    (I may have a slight addiction to stripes as well.)

    …very cute pictures =).

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

    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.

    I like them all. :)

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