Summa Time and the Search for THE Beach Bag

One of the things that excited me when I was on a buying trip earlier this year was discovering what's hot and new for next season by brands that are not carried by the retailer I work for, simply for my personal pleasure. I came across this perfect summer bag by Ancient Greek. The bag is made out of colorful woven textile with canvas lining and cute antique multi charm accents. It was everything that I want for a beach bag, it was light, charming, colorful, roomy, and simply easy to pair with everything! Six months later and the search is still on for this simple bag. I found other versions of it but in blue and pink. They just didn't do it for me. So I settled for Kayu's St Tropez mini pompom-embellished woven straw tote, and more which I plan to share in future posts. 

What's your favorite go-to summer/beach bag?
