Being a city girl at heart, I have a thirst for all things utilitarian.
At times, practical isn’t necessarily fashionable, but this summer I have developed a major crush on a specific accessory, that’s not only adorable to look at, but super duper girl on the go friendly.
The summer straw tote is an essential for all us busy bees.
I especially found how useful it was this weekend, when I spent part of my time in the city, and the rest on the beach.
It was a beautiful thing, as I was able to pack my bag with all necessities and in one clean sweep, go from urban jungle to the ocean.
To document my weekend adventures are some rather telling snaps
|As you can see, I was all business on friday and couldn’t be bothered, but my bag kept me in check||.|
|At last it was time for me to take a chill pill and let loose a little.

|Then, it was time to plop my ass down on Tom Otterness’s foot sculpture. (You should check this gem out, in battery park, its quite neat-o.)|
|As the day progressed, I made some friends. It helped that they weren’t of the human variety.

|Thing’s went uphill after my day at the park, as I got to chill at long beach Sunday afternoon. The only constant was my amazing tote bag, which I had apparently stuffed with candy.|
|Last but not least, a close up of what’s been my companion and savior. She works hard for the money.|
