During my trips to the beach and pool every summer, I always have a tote bag. I came across the Optari Sol Tote bag and they reminded me of a certain shoe that my family loves to wear. Optari sent us a large tan and small pink sol totes for review. They also sent along a few of their Fobbz to help us personalize the bags.
This tote bag has been PERFECT for these day trips. I love that they stand up on their own. They are also easy to clean. After a recent beach trip, all I had to do was rinse it off (inside and out) and all of the sand washed away. There’s no lining in this bag or any place for dirt or sand to hide. Just like your favorite pair of summer shoes, it rinses clean and dries very quickly!
My daughter is very in to “matching” these days and was excited to have a miniature version of mommy’s bag in her favorite color-pink! Being the girly girl she is, she also loves bags and purses. And it didn’t take even a moment to realize that the bag matches her shoes perfectly.
Her small sol tote has served us well on her trips to the pool for swim lessons. I just roll up her towel, stick her goggles and a change of clothes inside and we are set! She also adores her Fobbz. They are easy to put on (just pop the backing of the Fobbz through the hole on the bag) and she can change them around whenever she pleases.
The Sol Tote features:
- Long, comfortable handles
- Flat bottom to keep your tote standing
- Two sizes
- Ten colors
Now, perhaps the coloring of my monitor is off, but the photos on the website to me appear more muted than they are in reality. I thought the large tote would be a peachy color and the small tote a pastel pink. However the large tote is more of a sand color and the pink is definitely brighter. I actually like that the small tote is hot pink, as it matches her water shoes (Kieran likes that, too!)
This is definitely a must-have bag for the summer!
