There's something about summer... The warm sun on your sunscreened face, that cool Aperol spritz sweating down your hand, and the urgent need to carry absolutely everything you own around with you at all times in a straw tote. Between the months of June and August, you'll never be caught dead without your baseball hat, your current reading material, your scrunchie, your lip balm, your iPhone dongle, your metal straw, your Allegra-D, an avocado, your other lip balm, and some seaweed snacks all packed up and ready to travel, whether you actually need any of it or not. Maybe the humidity's gone to your head? It's stuff! Unless you've got the right tote—in which case, it's exactly the right amount of stuff and congratulations on your excellent spatial reasoning skills. You've always been a whiz with Legos and now you look really great, too. For fun, why don't you challenge yourself and figure out which of your earthly possessions could fit in this array of seasonally appropriate woven totes? Leave your list in the comments.
