Spring is hands down the most jam-packed season of my life & while that is one of the reasons why I love this time of year, it certainly comes with its own fashion conundrums. As I scurry from one event to the next, one of my most important accessories is a roomy tote, that doesn't sacrifice on function or style.
My search to fill my life with fewer, better things has led me to many new brands that are doing amazing things for the fashion industry & the way we look at the impact of always wanting more. I am continually impressed at the innovators that find solutions where other people only see problems, and today I am excited to introduce you to a brand that has been around for many years, but has finally solved my Spring tote bag woes & in the process teaching me a little more about the face of conscious consumerism.
Sea Bags designs are made in the USA from up-cycled sails (collected directly from the sailing community & boaters themselves!). I love the chic nautical inspired prints & colors! I was pleasantly shocked when I read that in the last 15 years Sea Bags has saved over 500 tons of materials ending up in landfills - read more about their intentional bag making process here.

dress: white dress via Nordstrom (under $100 & available in a gorgeous coral color too!)
shoes: lace-up wedges c/o Indigo Rd.

Not only are the sails that Sea Bags uses for their creations incredibly durable, but they have so much character! Their collection of vintage bags are so eye catching, I love how they save the original insignia and designs of the sails, from their previous life on a sailboat! And they have seriously perfected the Beach Bag with their Ogunquit tote!
The bag I chose is their popular lobster tote that has been remixed in fresh lime green for Spring. Like all of their classic totes, mine is made with hard-wearing recycled sails & hand-spliced hemp rope handles (It is so cool how the rope handles go along the side & under the bottom for the ultimate support of your stuff!).
