If you’re anything like us, you’re hoping to spend a good portion of this summer near the closest and coolest body of water. For trips to the beach or the pool, a chic bag can pull your whole look together. But if you’re going to invest, you’ll probably want an option you can carry to work too. After all, when it comes to shopping, the smartest and most sustainable choice is something classic, functional, and multi-use.
