The end of June is nearing, and summer is in full swing in my household. As Vince and I are running the kids from one summer activity to the next and the heat turns up (which it surprisingly does in MN) you’ll find me carrying at least one of my top three A|F summer picks!
1. The Everyday Packing Totes
If you have ever watched my Instagram stories, you know how much I talk about keeping a set (or two) of the Everyday Packing Totes in my car. If you have kids, you know how often the unexpected does occur! I keep a snack, first aid and toiletry tote in my car and I love how easy these totes make it to keep all of my supplies organized in my center console.
The largest tote turns into a stadium compliant handbag, which is so useful during the summer months as we head to baseball games downtown (go Twins!) I love my Navy tote for this event, but they also come in four gorgeous and versatile colors.
2. Anything Camel
Camel is a beautiful color that transitions so well from season to season, but one of my favorite times to wear it is during the summer. It’s classic, bright and matches well with the pops of color that I tend to incorporate into my summer wardrobe.
Currently, A|F features two items in camel: The Omaha Handbag and Sarah Mini. These make a gorgeous set, and I love each for unique reasons. The Omaha Handbag is my year round handbag, with colors differing each season. The Sarah Mini is the perfect backpack for summer day trips as it’s both chic and practical.
3. The Briggs Weekender
In my family summer equals travel! I love my Briggs Weekender bag because it is the perfect bag for summer lake trips and family vacation. It’s also larger than most weekender or duffel bags and features a structured bottom compartment that I use for shoes and my hairdryer.
If you are searching for a perfecting pairing to go with the Briggs Weekender, I recommend the Marina Mini. Made of the same material and leather details, these bags coordinate so well together for a chic and luxurious travel set.
Sundays are critical for me as a business owner and busy mom of 4 to carve out some time for planning the week ahead! Here are a few things I do to ensure a smoother week ahead.
