Tote-ally Chic

by The Zoe Report

To me, the only way to spend summer is with my feet in the sand at the beach or drinking fruity cocktails by the pool. Of course, the only way to dress for either scenario is in a sunshine-approved outfit, i.e. a vibrant maxi dress, sky-high wedges and some fabulous arm candy! Speaking of fabulous arm candy, have you seen Gregory Parkinson’s ravishing debut selection of African Totes? Tote-ally chic!

Spotted during a recent Barneys excursion, these bright bags won me over in a single glance. A seamless extension of Parkinson‘s S/S collection—which is a coveted roundup of gypset, breezy pieces—they are sustainably crafted from kaleidoscopic patterns that he has sourced over the years. OOC! Choose the design that speaks to you the most, then tote it around as a colorful companion for a day trip to the beach or while on a steamy vacay…just don’t forget to pack it full with summer essentials: a sun hat, beach towel and sunscreen! xoRZ
