If you’re like me during the summer, you’re always on the lookout for that perfect beach day. Unfortunately, if you’re really like me, the beach day usually falls on a Tuesday (following a rainy weekend) and the best you can hope for is an early morning or late evening jog for a glimpse of sun — the beach a 10-mile-away-dream out your office window. Well dream no more. Or at least take the step of brining your dream along with you to work. I’m obsessed with VivaTerra’s Recycled Sailcloth Bags. These cute summery designs are actually made from recycled sails with likewise, sail-inspired graphics.*
The hand tote’s nautical rope handles provide a sure grip, and the oversized beach shoulder tote features a roomy inside zipper pocket and green grass design. The larger bags display the sail of origin on an inside panel. Constructed to stand up to the heaviest weather, these bags prove indestructible for the same reason sail fabric doesn’t rip apart in squalls. Prepare to catch an admiring eye on land or sea.
VivaTerra also has some beautiful seaglass jewelry so you can literally keep the ocean close to your heart as you work. Speaking of work… Instead of joining the “tennis shoes + sock” ladies on the subway, why not slip on a pair of comfortable flip flops? I”m still a fan of Mella Usa’s Terry flip flop and must say my Teva “Olowahu’s” are honestly the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever worn!
