What's in My Beach Bag?

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

the lovely Seattle skyline behind me.. you can see the Space Needle! ^__^










Dress: TJ Maxx (Similar)
Jacket: Old Navy (Similar)
Leggings: Forever 21 (Here)
Shoes: Target (Here)
Sunglasses: Chanel (old)
Necklace: c/o Michelle Chang via Jewelmint (Here)
Tote bag: c/o Teke Company (Here)

Happy Wednesday!

So what's in my beach bag? I will tell you in a minute! I was given the opportunity to pick a bag from Teke Company and was asked to customize the colors for the base and accent of the tote bag. I went with my all-time favorite neutral color - (light) grey and an accent of sky blue. I received the large tote size and I knew I wanted to use it for a beach and travel bag (maybe a travel bag post later when I go to Hawaii!) because it was big enough to fit everything I wanted to carry to the beach and still have room for anything else extra. Keep in mind this was a casual day to the beach.. just walking around and not really laying out to tan some. If so, I would've brought a towel as well and not wear leggings. haha.. ;)

Here's what I packed:

4. Chanel sunglasses

What's great about Teke Company is that all of their products are made with sustainable materials such as boiled wool, 100% organic cotton rope, and standard zippers. All of their bags and clutches are made in USA (always will be) and are really durable like leather. And the dyes that they use to make all the colors are all eco-friendly. Can't get anything better than that in my opinion! I love how they put different compartments inside and outside the tote, makes it easier to organize all my stuff. And at first I thought the material was easy to catch on dog hair (thanks Kobi!) but that wasn't the case which I was thrilled about! I am overall happy with this tote and will definitely carry it on with me whenever I travel or hit the beach! :)

To learn more about Teke Company: check out their Etsy shopFacebookTwitter, & Instagram!

What would you put in your beach bag? I would love to know!

Also, this is my 100th post here on my blog! Yayayay!! Something fun will be coming up very soon!!

  60. That does look like the perfect beach bag and I love the colors you chose. I love your casual beach outfit as well. I don't enjoy walking on rocks (does a number on my feet) so hopefully it wasn't too uncomfortable walking on them in your sandals.
