This summer, we've been having a blast. We've been really enjoying spending time together as a family while soaking up the sun. Whether it's a trip to Cedar Point, a lazy day at the park, or a day splashing in the fountains at the riverfront, we've definitely spent a ton of time on the go.
Of course like any smart parent, when we head out on an adventure, I always try to be prepared. I often bring snacks, drinks, sunscreen, extra clothing, first aid items, and anything else we could possibly need. Since the kiddos are no longer babies, I try my best to avoid lugging around a diaper bag. I mean, can you blame me? Sure, there are some really cute diaper bags on the market, but we've graduated that phase, since Xander and Sophie are 5 and 6 now.
Thankfully, Thirty-One Gifts has some great organization solutions that have allowed us to retire our diaper bags for good. Thirty-One Gifts offers a wide variety of totes, thermal bags, purses, home organization products, and even some really pretty jewelry. Their products are well-made, stylish, and oh so functional. I can see why so many of my friends and family are absolutely hooked on this brand!
We received a couple of great products to check out for ourselves from the awesome folks at Thirty-One Gifts. We've been testing them out, and taking them with us wherever we go. I'd love to tell you a bit about these products and how they've helped our busy summer go more smoothly.
First, I'd love to introduce you to the tote that made me retire our diaper bag. This is the Fresh Market Thermal Tote in Preppy Pop. (How GORGEOUS is this bag?!)
This roomy thermal can fit up to two 9"x13" pans inside, so it's perfect for potlucks and family picnics! It also has expandable sides that are just the right size to fit 2-liter bottles inside. Plus, it comes with long handles so it's super easy to carry!
Size: Approx. 10.5"H x 15.5"L x 10"D (snapped down); 15"H (when top is expanded)
This tote is incredibly well made. It's got nice, durable, longer straps, which makes it easy to carry. It also has a pocket on the front which allows you to carry your wallet, keys, cell phone, etc.
This is one of the many Thirty-One products that can be customized with embroidery. I chose to have Peace & Love embroidered on ours. It's such a positive message, and one that should be widely shared during these increasingly crazy times.
I absolutely LOVE how roomy and versatile the Fresh Market Thermal Tote is. It's nice and roomy on the inside, and is lined with a thermal material that keeps hot things hot and cold things cold. The bag is expandable to fit 2-Liter bottles, which makes it absolutely perfect for family picnics, etc.
Here's my 6 year old, Sophie, holding the Fresh Market Tote down by the riverfront. She's small and the tote is large, but she has no problem carrying it, thanks to the longer straps. She loves feeling like she's helping out, too, so it's really a winning product.
Next, I'd like to show you all the Paris Purse in Daring Cobalt Pebble. (Yes, they have purses, too!) I don't know about you, but this gal can never, ever have too many purses.
First of all, I absolutely adore this color. It's vibrant, rich, and definitely compliments both casual and dressy looks. This purse adds the perfect pop of color to any occasion.
Perfect for a night on the town or a day at the office, the Paris handbag includes plenty of space for a small tablet. It also includes a matching Skinny Strap that converts the bag from crossbody to shoulder bag. For added fun, you can change out your strap color to switch up your look, and customize the interior by adding a Triple Slit Pocket.
Size: Approx. 11.5"H x 8.75"L x 3.5"D
This purse is nice and roomy without being cumbersome or bulky. It's got both interior and exterior pockets, perfect for all of your essentials. I tend to carry a lot of stuff in my purse, so space is of the utmost importance to me. This purse is the perfect size for every day use.
If you're super-organized, you can add the Triple Slit Pocket, seen below. Featuring three flat pockets, this add-on is the perfect way to customize the interior of your bag. It easily snaps into the Miles of Styles, Fashion Games, Diamond District, Paris, Fashion Week, Mini Diamond District, Daring Abbey and Fashion Editor.
Overall, I couldn't be any more excited about Thirty-One Gifts. These versatile products are not only adorable, they're amazingly durable and functional. These products allow me to stay organized this summer, in so many ways. We carry our swimming gear in the Fresh Market Tote, but also pack food and drink for picnics, potlucks, and family gatherings. We even take it to the Farmer's Market and load it up with fresh produce!
And of course, I absolutely LOVE the Paris purse. It's become a fast favorite, and I get loads of compliments about it wherever I go. The color stands out, and the classic styling is just so chic and timeless.
If you love being organized but don't want to sacrifice style, definitely check out all of the gorgeous products that Thirty-One Gifts has to offer. I think you'll be just as pleased as we are!
