They’re back. From canvas to straw and with the occasional pom-pom, totes are all around us. But not all totes are created equal, so before you head to the beach with the same old bag from last year, be sure to check out these shops around town to pick up your new favorite spring break accessory.
Leave it to the Crew to come through with the ultimate tote. Nautical stripes? Check. Woven sisal? Check. Pom-poms? Check, check, and check.
We’d take pretty much any excuse to head to this L.A.-based shop, but the Big Sur by Pacific Totes provides a chic and functional one (a solid combination).
Milk & Honey proves once again why it’s the go-to store for chic shoppers on a budget. You can pick up this adorable, vacation-ready shoulder bag for only $54.
*Stationed in Uptown? Rio Ritz carries the same bag for the same price.

Take one step past the purple threshold of Merry Vose’s West Lovers Lane shop, and you’ll find yourself in bohemian beach bungalow heaven.
