Hello, Everyone! We’ve been having amazing weather here this week so far, and that makes me one happy girl! I can take the heat, just leave the humidity out of it.
So, I love a great leather handbag like any fashion, loving girl; however, I have two little boys, and I need a tote that works for me, literally. I have two baby bags, and loved them, but for me, it’s nice to just carry a normal tote. My three requirements are the following: 1. It has to be able to carry everything, 2. I have to be able to wipe it down, if something gets spilled on it, and 3. It has to be super cute. I save the pretty leather ones for date nights, girls nights, or for outfit posts right now. I discovered Barrington Gifts totes a few years ago, and fell in love with the St. Anne Tote, mostly because you can design & monogram them. Who doesn’t love that? I get so many compliments on these totes, and I wear them season after season! It’s a win, win! These would also make a great gift for a new Mom as well. It comes in a baby bag design, but looks like a pretty, little tote.
Below are the designs that I’m trying to decide between. Which one do you think I should get?
The St. Anne Tote (Design #1)
I love the blue and white pattern with a pop of green in the monogram! This one is a front runner right now. Plus, this year you can change the leather trim color as well, and I really like the lighter leather trim for something different.
This is just a happy, Summer design. Apparently, since having boys, I have snuck more gingham in throughout our house/life, according to my husband. I guess I’ve never really noticed that’s it’s everywhere, until he called it out. I do love gingham, it’s classic, and I really like the royal blue. I am a Mom of boys, and they do wear a lot of gingham. I’m thinking I should match them too, now. Ha!
The St. Anne Tote (Design #3)
I really love this pattern, and already own this tote with a hot pink/green stripe. The mint green/white stripe with this pattern is really pretty too. This pattern can be worn year round, so that’s an added bonus in my book.
St. Anne Tote Leopard
Oh my goodness, I’m in love. Leopard is a neutral. And, this one just may be added to my closet for Fall!
I could play around with the designs of these totes all day long, but I do have two little ones waking up as we speak. I’m off to go get my second cup of coffee, and think about which one to get! Help wanted…I’d love your opinion, too!
Enjoy your day!
