One of the best parts about summer weekends is that you can be called away on short notice, whether to a friend’s beach house or to a barbecue in the ‘burbs. Even if you’re a notoriously sloppy last-minute packer, with this mojito-green bag from Kate Spade, no one will be the wiser. A zippered pouch in the bottom can hold (and quarantine) your shoes, while the main compartment accommodates a full Saturday and Sunday’s worth of clothes.
No matter how you get around this summer—by plane, train, or Zipcar—it goes without saying that your beauty products will be riding shotgun. Keep them safe from spills in this Bollywood-inspired makeup case. We dig the hot pink color and the dazzling gold stars. The zippered compartments will safely stow your sunscreens, serums, and other products prone to leakage.
Few totes can easily transition from a shopping excursion downtown to a sunbathing stint on the beach, but this punchy blue number more than makes the cut. Thanks to the spill-proof vinyl lining, you won’t have to worry about exploding sunscreen tubes or swampy bathing suits. Toss in your favorite paperback, sling it over your shoulder, and make a beeline for the surf.
With its jaunty sailor stripes, this duffel is ready for your next offshore adventure. Even if you’re landlocked, the durable cotton fabric makes it perfect for tossing in the trunk of a car or onto the luggage rack of a train. Let’s just say it’s as up for anything as you are.
Recently, this summery tote has been our go-to for grocery shopping and lingering picnics in the park. The hot-pink color and happy-go-lucky message is the surest way to put a spring in our step.
