It’s here – BEACH DAY! I’m so excited to begin the new season and get off to a great start. Cool and cute beach bags are banging – so get a handle on it and grab yourself some added fun in the sun with my suggestions to get you started.
Anything Rebecca Minkoff is MINDIE approved (!) and I have it on good authority that anything neon green is Julian approved as well! So, you just can’t miss with this little “Julian” number for a carefree beach experience. Cool, green nylon in a sleek, sporty backpack, actually– will get you going and keep you going. Have you guessed by now that my little boy’s name just happens to be “Julian”? Maybe that’s why this one just speaks to me. ❤️
