YES I’m aware that TOMORROW is the 4th of July and therefore perhaps you could have used this post earlier in the summer. (I was busy picking out sandals and swimsuits and travel stuff!) But maybe you woke up today and started digging through your Big Bag of Other Bags, looking for your favorite beach or pool bag, and realized it’s gotten totally messed up over the last year and you need a new one and you need it NOW. I personally just bought a new bag for Beach and Pool needs from LL Bean — I don’t know who needs to hear this, but they’re now selling Boat and Totes with very cute graphic designs on them.  Target has a million of them right now too. And you can get SO many cute personalized ones on Etsy. I’d also be remiss if I didn’t remind you that you can have a canvas tote covered with Breton striped shirts. Mesh beach bags seem sensible. And in writing this post, I have learned that you can literally buy a beach tote with a BUILT-IN BOTTLE OPENER?! We truly live in the future.

And look at all of these cute ones:
