ES Goes Beachy: Totes

Welcome to ES Beach Week!  This week's postings will feature all things beachy.  I am optimistically planning to post something new everyday so I can cover all of the essential beach items you will need this summer.  I myself will be heading to a week long beach trip with friends next week, so my shopping focus of late has been making sure I have all of the essentials.  Growing up near the beach has taught me the importance of having a proper beach tote.  Since days at the beach can be somewhat lengthy, you will need a bag that can handle more than just a towel and sunblock.  In addition to these items, my beach packing typically includes magazines, books, an ipod, snacks, drinks, cover ups and maybe even a ball (if my dad or boyfriend are involved).  Since my go-to straw beach bag has seen better days, I bought a canvas cream and black patterned tote at H&M last week (unfortunately I could not find a photo online).  I was thrilled with the purchase since it is not only large enough to carry all of my things, but it is so cute that I might just use it away from the sand too.   Since we all have our own beach style, I have picked a plethora of totes ranging from animal prints to the classic straw bag.  Additionally, a very fashion savvy male friend of mine gave me the idea to feature one bathing suit pick each day of beach week.  You can find these picks at the bottom of each post.  I hope you enjoy!
