Top 10 Stylish Beach Bags

We are so loving the beach bags and totes this season. There’s a style for every type of girl from sporty to fashionista, from cute to sassy, from practical to pretty, and crafty, too. What’s your style?

1. Fashionista

The Roberta Roller Rabbit Cotton Tote from Piperlime.com tops our price list but it also tops the charts for softness and fashion points.

2. Sporty

The Patagonia pack is lightweight, waterproof, sturdy and fits your active lifestyle all year, not just in summer. With compartments for water, sunscreen, keys, cell, e-reader and anything else you want to organize, this pack puts the “fun” in “functional”.

3. Casual Chic

The Urban Outfitters crocheted bag is so lightweight you may forget it’s on your shoulder. The nice thing about crocheted bags is they are tiny when practically empty, and they expand to fit just about anything you need for the day. We love the tribal print, too.

4. Funny

Who likes this beach bag? This gal! We give two thumbs up to the bloggers at Vistaprint for coming up with this custom bag. If you’re the humorous or creative type, come up with your own design and get it custom printed onto a plain canvas bag.

5. Practical

The crossbody bucket bag from Old Navy slings over your shoulder like a messenger bag, letting you tote your stuff hands-free. This bag comes in bright summery colors and is on the less expensive side. The upright design makes it easy to carry sunscreen, water bottles, iced tea and other potential spill hazards.

6. Preppy

The nautical canvas rope handle bag from Lands End, or just about any other designer out there this season, gets high marks for being preppy, popular and very useful. Look for a bag with several pockets to keep you organized as you hit the beach in style.

7. Playful

The b.b.begonia sport ‘n style bag has a super playful design. We love the colorful and interesting design as well as the rainbow ribbon straps. While it does the job well, being both roomy and uncomplicated, what we love most is that you can spot it coming back from the surf to your towel.

8. Trendy

The Limited paper straw tote isn’t waterproof, sturdy or all that practical for beach use, but it is totally cute, very on trend and inexpensive enough that you can carry it around all summer and still pick up a canvas tote for when you’re actually headed to the beach.

9. Crafty

If you’re into summer crafts or have a mom who loves to sew, commandeer a towel from the linen closet (ask mom first, of course) and get to work sewing it into a beach bag. Your only cost is the nylon straps which you can buy by the yard at craft or hardware stores.

10. Eco-Crafty

Hey, Kool-Aid! What do you do with your empty juice pouches when you're a Green teen? Sew them into a uniquely playful, waterproof beach tote? Collect and carefully wash out your pouches, then ask a skilled crafty assistant to help you stitch them together using a sewing machine fitted with thick thread and a denim gauge needle. Sew on nylon, rope or canvas straps.

I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
