DIY to Try: Beach Totes

Although hitting the beach used to require little more than a towel, some sunscreen and a pair of shades, we secretly adore the fact that our favorite fashion trends are making their way off the streets and into the sand. Case in point: embellished totes! These colorful carry-all bags are a fabulous way to make a statement by the ocean or pool — and we love that hardly any two ever turn out the same! To further our obsession, we’ve turned to some of our favorite bloggers for their crafty tips and tricks.
