The Best Vacation Purses and Totes

10 total views

I’ve been chatting a lot lately about the best accessories to pack for your next vacation. If you missed it, I recently shared Colorful Jewelry and Accessories for Vacation and Beyond and Comfortable Shoes You Need for a Beach Vacation.

I’m continuing the vacation accessory trend today by sharing the best vacation purses and totes, including many of my personal favorites. If you’re jet-setting somewhere sunny and tropical like me to Miami, these bags will be perfect paired with your vacation outfits. But, don’t worry if you’re not. These same bags will look great with your spring and summer outfits in just a few short weeks (or whenever spring makes its appearance!)

1. Large Hand-Woven Straw Hobo Bag

This Large Hand-Woven Straw Hobo Bag is a “must-have” style bag for summer. I saw this handbag style everywhere last year, and it is an excellent choice for summer. It is a great medium size, and the natural color goes with everything. This is a medium size bag, and it can hold everything you need for a gurl’s lunch date. It would also look adorable with a small scarf tied around the handle.

2. Mocha Straw Crossbody

I’m a big fan of this Mocha Straw Crossbody with leather accents and gold chain details. This handbag can be dressed up or down, and it is large enough to hold all of your essential items. This bag is also available in a version with black handles.

This Woven Clutch Bag is smaller and can be worn as a crossbody. This cute clutch is smaller than the hobo bag above, but I like that you can carry it as a crossbody. I’m carrying the darker khaki color, but it is also available in a lighter beige.

4. Straw Clutch

This straw clutch wrist purse is large enough to hold my phone, keys, and a small wallet. I love this straw clutch, and it will be great to carry with any outfit this spring and summer.

5. Large Straw Tote

I bought this tote bag when I went on my Biltmore trip. We didn’t even have a beach trip planned at that time, but I must have subconsciously been wanting to go. I can’t find the exact one to link anymore, but here is a very similar one! I love the modern style of this tote, and it is plenty big enough to carry everything I need to the pool or beach. Plus, it will look great with all your summer outfits since it is a neutral color.

6. Woven Crossbody

This Woven Vegan Crossbody Handbag is so lightweight and perfect for spring and summer. The bag can be carried as an evening bag with its chain-link handle, which I’ve removed in this photo. This is the White1 Color.

7. Vegan Woven Bag

I have had my eye on this super popular trending woven bag! I have it pictured in brown here, but I also really love it in the black and apricot which is a nice light tan color. If you don’t love neutrals and want to add a pop of color to your outfit this season, this bag also comes in some beautiful spring colors like sage, emerald, lime green, light blue, and light pink!

8. Beach Please

This heavyweight canvas tote bag is water resistant and has ample room for all of your beach essentials. It’s available in several other sayings like ‘Weekend Please’, which is great since it’s the perfect size for a weekend getaway!

9. Beach Bogg Waterproof Tote

These Bogg bags are the ultimate bags for taking with you to the lake, pool, beach, camping, the waterpark, etc. They are so roomy and lightweight. Plus, they are easy to clean and come in so many fun colors and patterns!

10. Bamboo Handbag

I bought this bamboo handbag several years ago. This style was all the rage because there was a Cult Gaia handbag that looked just like this but was crazy expensive. I found this one on Amazon, and it has a 5-star rating with almost 5,000 reviews. I don’t carry it a lot, but it is great to take on vacation, etc.

Some More Bags You’ll Love:

  • This mesh beach bag dries quickly and makes shaking out excess sand from the beach a breeze! You could also use it at the farmer’s market or to carry groceries!
  • I love these round rattan handbags that you can wear on your shoulder or as a crossbody.
  • If you are taking your kids or grandchildren to the pool or beach, this bag has plenty of room for beach toys, snacks, and towels for everyone!
  • I love the happy and bright colors on this woven handbag!
