i’ll admit it — i’m a total basket case. i love tote baskets of all shapes and sizes and have a collection of them already, but i’m always finding room for just one more. i use them for the farmer’s market and the flea, grocery shopping and for sure poolside and a day at the beach. not only do they have a kind of cool european, vintage vibe while you’re carrying them, they look pretty hanging out in plain site, too. i have a couple of french market totes hanging in my kitchen at the ready for my next shopping excursion. i went on the hunt for some nouveau tote bags and found quite a few favorites as well as some inspiration for toting one along — the perfect summer accessory, but oh-so practical, too.
