There's nothing like a canvas tote to carry all your summer essentials whether you are off on a day trip or having a picnic in the park. One of my favorites is the classic Lands' End canvas totes. They come in all sorts of colors, sizes, and can be monogrammed for only $6 extra. I love the Lands End Medium Natural Zip Top Canvas Tote Bag (on sale for $21). I also love this Gap Drawstring Hobo Tote ($39.95) that comes in a green stripe as well as solid yellow, coral and green. The hobo shape is slouchy and fun. The side pockets let you easily stash keys, cellphone and lipstick so everything is within reach.
Classic nautical style totes are my favorites but I also love colorful and whimsical bags too. Here are more fun canvas bags that can take you well into your summer days.
