When I heard we were headed to Palm Springs for Bunny’s bachelorette party, I knew I needed some amazing new items. I had been eyeing this tote from Mark & Graham- and this was the perfect opportunity to make the purchase. I just love the nautical stripes and the bright orange monogram!
So I have to admit something really embarrassing: I did the monogram wrong (insert mortified emoji here). I was so excited to show my mom how these photos turned out so when I did the first thing she said was: “Cute bag, but you know the monogram is messed up right?” #oops. The Z should be in the middle. Normally I leave all of the monogramming to Emily. Literally everything I own that is monogrammed she purchased for me- so I am kind of a beginner when it comes to this. After having a moment of panic- I realized it’s okay and I still think it looks really cute. And no one will really know, right? Luckily, Mark and Graham has a monogram guide to help you make the perfect monogram- and the best part- they monogram for free!
Mistake aside, I still really love this bag. The handle makes it really different from the other totes that I own. The bag is fully lined so you don’t have to worry about throwing your tanning lotion or sunscreen into it. What I love most is the structure of the bag. It stands on its own and doesn’t flop around all over the place. While this is called a pool tote- I could very well be used as a weekender or a carry on. I plan to use mine everywhere! If you haven’t checked out Mark and Graham yet, I highly suggest you do so. Check out my Mark and Graham favorites below.
