My husband and I have a passion for traveling. We love discovering new places as well as going back to vacation spots we have fallen in love with. Every summer, we spend time with my in-laws at one of my favorite places on earth, Lake Powell. One thing I've learned throughout the many years of traveling to the lake is that having a chic yet functional tote stocked with all my beach day essentials is critical for hot summer days, lounging in the sun.

I have had past experiences where I bring a super cute beach bag to the lake but by the end of the week, it's ruined from the the sandy beaches, oily tanning lotion and the water. I love the kate spade new york Francis Tote because while it's stylish and totally suits my personal style, it follows the form and function rule because it's totally water proof! I can't wait to head to Lake Powell with my family and my Francis tote in tow!
