Four great bags for heading to HK’s beaches

These days, my beach essentials need to share precious real estate with little J’s summer gear and let’s just say the kid doesn’t travel light.  We’re talking water wings, swimming diapers, regular diapers, a change of clothes (or two, actually), a sun shirt (just picked one up at Sabina Swims…so cute!!), sun hat, sunblock, beach toys galore, the ball she won’t leave the house without, the iPad to break out as a distraction in case mummy needs 10 more minutes doing whatever it is I need to be doing…the list goes on and on.  So the long and short of it is that those dainty little beach bags I used to rock pre-baby just do not cut it – and I really don’t want to drag along more than one bag if I can help it.

So…..I’ve been on the prowl for a new beach tote big enough for me and a toddler and all the stuff we cart along with us to the pool or beach. Here’s what I’m considering:

Kate Spade Cabana Stripe Raelin Tote
HK$3000 at Kate Spade in IFC
Why Mummy Loves it: The coated canvas of this roomy tote makes it super durable but also a bit glossy and quite glam, while the woven bottom and cheery, bold stripes scream “I am on a fabulous holiday in the sun“.

Tory Burch Oversized Dipped Tote
HK$2583 at Tory Burch in IFC
Why Mummy Loves it: The bold color blocking and positively massive size make this a statement piece. Did I mention it’s positively massive…..?!? The thing is downright huge.

Tootie & Carla’s The Beautiful South Canvas Bag
HK$350 at Tootie & Carla
Why Mummy Loves it:  Choose either the South Bay or Shek O version of this big and wide tote (the beach name is stitched on the side) and take a piece of HK’s South Side with you if you’re hitting up a beach abroad this summer.

Samui Stripe Beach Bag from JADEtribe
US$113.30 at Shop Bop (30% off!!)
Why Mummy Loves it: These striped, handwoven totes from JADEtribe are all unique and feature assorted little beads, jingle bells, and shells.  But what we really love is that this carryall was lovingly crafted by women artisans from the South East jungles of Laos.
