With the Canada Day long weekend just around the corner, many of us are probably gearing up for a relaxing time outdoors, whether it's a picnic at the park, a beach barbecue or a jaunty outing on a boat somewhere. And where designer handbags fear to tread (think water, ketchup, sand, grass stains, exploding sunscreen bottles...), a fun canvas tote can be a girl's best friend. For the girl with deep pockets, Jonathan Adler totes ($203.11) are a great option. With their bright colours and kitschy graphics, they perfectly capture the playful spirit of retro sun destinations. It's hard not to want all three.
But since I'm not the sort of girl with deep pockets, I think I'll stick to cheaper options like this Hudson's Bay Company tote bag. The iconic multi-coloured stripes are just as bright and graphic, and at a mere $10, the price can't be beat.
How are you planning to spend Canada Day?
