During the summer, I really only use these three bags. These summer bags are functional, cute, and super versatile!

Need a new summer bag? These are my three faves.

I used to totally be a bag kind of girl — I splurged on expensive purses from time to time, and I had a lot of different bags. I still own most of them, but really there are only three summer bags that I use anymore.

They’re all cute, functional, and versatile. Here they are.

My three most used summer bags

1. Madewell crossbody bag

I finally splurged on this bag last spring and it instantly became a favorite. I own the larger Madewell TOTE BAG, but I needed something a little smaller for everyday.

This one is big enough to hold my essentials, and I love that it’s casual enough for being with my kids, but nice enough to carry on date night.

2. Freshly Picked Mini Backpack

When I hear “mini backpack” I think of those tiny backpacks everyone used to carry in the 90s. This one from FRESHLY PICKED is far from that, and super chic.

I also own the larger FRESHLY PICKED BACKPACK, and it’s amazing for travel and for tiny kids when you need to tote around the whole house, but this smaller one is perfect for everyday and older kids.

It’s big enough to carry a water bottle or two, snacks, my wallet and keys, my phone, and other small essentials.

3. Logan + Leonora Daytripper Tote for the Pool

This is the perfect beach/pool bag. It’s BIG but not massive. It holds water bottles, snacks, goggles, beach toys, plus has two waterproof zippered pockets.

The material is so sturdy, and I love that the straps are so comfortable.

It comes in a few different colors, and is the kind of bag that will stay classic and in good shape for YEARS. Also I get comments and compliments on it everywhere I go because it’s just so pretty.

    Hi, Thanks for the great list of bags, I saved a few for the future. This summer I bought A cool coccinelle bag – https://my-brandable.com/en/269-coccinelle which fits almost every one of my looks. I like things that are affordable and can be combined almost completely with a wardrobe. Good luck!
