Splendid Byron Bay Tote

Splendid Byron Bay Tote: Hold It At Bay

While it’s tempting to bring your favorite soft calfskin, luscious suede, and elaborate exotics to the beach or pool, you know tossing such skin on the sand or wet concrete goes against your better judgment.

This is the brand’s first baby bag, and it seems first time’s the charm! A perfect mix of function and style is hard to come by in this arena, but founder Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece is a mother of five. She knows a thing or two about what’s needed from a diaper bag!

Beach Accessories: Luxe Lounging

These aren’t exactly the typical vacation must-haves that you can throw in your raffia tote and leave on the beach while you wade out into sea.
