Every summer, I try to find a tote bag that can hold a decent amount and look great doing it. I fall into the group of gals smitten with the simple, classic French-ified basics designed by the LA-based handbag designer Clare Vivier. She always nails understated chic. I think I have found that perfect summer bag in Clare's newest summery creation, the striped Petit Beach Marine Tote. With chunky rope handles and jaunty red, white and blue stripes, the canvas carryall has ample room and an inner pocket making it a good city bag that can transition to the beach. Available on her website and in Stylebeat Shop, grab it before it sells out, and keep it simple.
