Summer just isn't summer without a trip or two to the beach. But, before you dip your toes in the sand, make sure you've got the right accessories for surviving in style—namely, the perfect beach bag. As Montauk residents, Alicia Murphy and Ashleigh Hults are well acquainted with the best Hamptons beaches, and luckily for us they have created the ideal carryall for a trip to the ocean.
Today, their line Poolside Bags launches an exclusive collection on Moda Operandi of embroidered straw totes. Each features a cheeky saying, but the pieces are also completely customizable with a phrase of your choice (or even your initials if you want to keep things simple). So, before you head out for your own Hamptons weekend, consider snapping up one of these cute bags for yourself. Think of it as beachwear with a little extra attitude.
