Your Summer Tote



Pack all the essentials for summer fun now. A complete list of what to pack in your Summer Tote at Day weekend is the perfect time to begin planning for summer fun, whether that be a 3-day weekend, a jaunt to the park or beach or heading out on long awaited vacation.

In any case, planning now will keep those spontaneous or even planned excursions that much more fun. No last minute scrambles or stress, grabbing for all the things we don’t need, forgetting, of course, the things we do need.

Which naturally means, you’ll need a chic tote to carry all of your essentials for summer fun.

In addition to cover-ups, swimming suits, and sporty yet cute sandals, you’ll want a fully stocked tote. So to help you pack perfectly, not missing a thing on your list, here are our suggestions for a fully stocked tote bag; items like sunscreen, protective phone covers and a floppy hat to guard against harsh UV rays made the list.
