It’s scorching hot outside and there’s no better explanation than the obvious: summer is here—and you know what that means, right? Beach trips are in order! Bikinis? Check. Sunscreen? Check. Cute cover-ups? Check. Now that you're ready to pack for a sweet escape, the only thing that’s missing is the perfect beach bag, which we’re here to help you find. And by “perfect,” we mean it should both be functional and OOTD-worthy.
Viajecito, a local brand founded by three ladies who are passionate about fashion and travel, focuses on four main attributes: beauty, comfort, practicality, and accessibility. Their beach totes are made of durable EVA foam rubber, so you can use them in and out of the water. The best part? Each comes with a removable zipped canvas lining and interchangeable braided rope handles, which means you can easily customize your Viajecito bag according to your liking and to match your summer OOTDs.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Who says you can’t wear black in the summer? Here’s an outfit that you can take from day to night, from poolside to cocktail hour!
Bonus: for your beach essentials—sunglasses, sunscreen, makeup, et al—it’s wiser to keep them in a smaller, separate bag that you can always carry with you on-the-go. Viajecito’s Splashkits are made of a waterproof silicone body and a water-resistant, plastic-toothed zipper. This way, you’ll keep your belongings safe from water splashes, light to moderate rain, and even drink spills!
