Our 5 Favorite Totes for Summer

Posted by on

ToteSavvy will organize your handbag and even turn it
into a stylish diaper bag. Looking for a tote recommendation?
Look no further, we've put together a curated list of our
5 favorite totes for summer. 

1. Tory Burch - Block-t Large Tote
This tote hits the mark for many, many reasons. We love the 
bright color, classic shape, and geometric stitching that adds
even more interest to a classic style. You can't go wrong with
a tote by Tory Burch this summer!

This tote is a great summer pick because of it's fun color
options and water resistant material. You can easily transition 
from shopping to a day at the pool without switching your handbag. 

3. Tory Burch - Large Canvas Stripe Tote
Nothing says easy summer style more than a nautical
stripe. We love this new tote by Tory Burch for many reasons.
1) The stripe is a fun yet subtle pattern. 2) It's made of canvas
which means it's a lightweight option when compared to
leather. 3) It zips fully closed. Totes that have a top zip
always make it to the top of our list!

4. Splendid - Khihel Tote
Oh the reasons why this tote by Splendid looks ah-mazing!
There's a tassel integrated into the design (we love tassels!).
There's a detachable shoulder strap. This is seriously such a
wonderful feature if you plan to use this tote as a diaper bag. 
Lastly, the ombre stripe is a cool take on a classic striped tote.

The Le Pliage Tote by Longchamp is probably one
of the most recommended totes to our customers. We
love it because of it's compact size (though still large
enough to make a great diaper bag), durable material,
and luxe feel. The Neo version has matching leather 
handles, adding yet another reason to love it. For a
fun summer handbag, opt for one of their bright colors 
like "Clementine", shown below. 

As always, our recommendations are based on information 
pulled from online retailers. According to the information we
gathered, ToteSavvy should fit nicely within each tote, however,
we cannot guarantee a perfect fit. Feel free to email us directly
with any questions regarding how ToteSavvy will fit within a specific
handbag. More fit information is also available here

  • It does! The Longchamp Le Pliage Large and Neo Large are exceptions to our sizing rule. The shape of the handbag allows ToteSavvy to have a great fit :)

  • Will tote savvy fit in the large Le pliage neo? Measurements say it is less wide than the older Le pliage totes and not 14 inches wide. Thanks!
