The Bag, The Beach

 A bikini , cut off shorts, and a  wide brimmed hat pretty much sums up my wardrobe for the past week in hawaii.   As I talked about in this post HERE, a group of our friends rented an exquisite estate for the week. The best part? The fact that the property was stationed right in front of the most astonishingly beautiful beach . The sound of the peaceful waves was my alarm clock,  as I would go grab my coffeee, and take 5 steps out the door to this stunning view.  Waking up in the morning has never been so appealing.

Let’s take a moment to converse about this new denim beauty of mine, the Chanel Canvas  Large Cambon tote. I’ve been eyeing her for a while now, actually the tan color, but when I spotted this light denim one with white leather at the Ala Moana Chanel store  I simply couldn’t resist. The feelings of butterflies fluttering your stomache and a light headrush from all the excitement,  I get it every time when I spot “the one”. You might have guessed it by now, but i am a major BAG lady, but surprisingly enough out of my extensive purse collection, I have yet to own an oversized tote bag. This might explain the reason why I’m always transporting back and forth carrying a million little bags. Only if I knew how much easier life would be with a LARGE TOTE! Especially when it comes to traveling, i’m now able to fit my laptop, multiple magazines & books, my jacket, makeup, headphones, food & water all in one purse! I guess it’s safe to say that Hawaii was a productive trip as I left with 3 things- a slight tan, an oversized tote, and a lifetime worth of memories!
