Get Ready For Summer with Vera Bradley - Review and Giveaway

Summer is finally here! And while you are anxiously awaiting the end of the clouds and thunderstorms you can start getting yourself ready to hit the beach and the pool. Lucky for us, Vera Bradley has us covered with all the hottest summer accessories.

I was lucky enough to receive a fantastic package from Vera Bradley with a sampling of their summer must-haves. While I am a huge Vera Bradley fan and have tons of the hand bags, luggage, and even sunglasses... these were my first summer accessories.


In this package I received the small mesch tote, sarong, and beach towel Jazzy Blooms. With this little set I can be completely coordinated when I hit the beach this summer. My first thought when I opened the package was about the beach towel. Before I even had the chance to open it up and check out the beautiful pattern I noticed how nice it felt. It's a really nice thickness without weighing me down. It's very soft and I love that the reverse side is orange and not white. I think it really pulls it together and makes it a really nice, quality towel.

The sarong is very cute and can be worn in several different ways. It also makes a really cute scarf, so that's an added bonus! It's very lightweight and a little shear. But over a bathing suit it looks very cute and gives you that coverage you're looking for when you walk the boardwalk or grab lunch.


The small mesch tote is exactly what I need. It is true to it's name.. so it's small. It's not the family beach bag, but it's perfect for me to take my wallet, towel, sunscreen, and a book or magazine. I like to have a seperate bag in case I need to run and buy drinks or grab a table for lunch while the kids and my husband stay at the beach. So this bag is all mine and I love it! It also has a little zippered pocket inside to hold keys and other little things for safe keeping.

I am a big fan of alot of Vera Bradley's patterns, but this one just really stands out as the perfect summer pattern. It's bright and cheerful and nothing has faded with washing. I am so happy with my new summer items and I think you will be too. 

Head over to Vera Bradley to check out their awesome summer sale where you can grab these items and more for up to 60% off. Plus, from now until July 8th you can get a free towel with any $100 purchase (US orders only). Happy Shopping!

Now for the best news of all... one of my lucky readers is going to win a small mesch tote, towel, and sarong in Plum Crazy!

I love the grand tote in the Heather pattern. Her bags are large enough to carry all my mommy gear without feeling like I'm lugging around a diaper bag.

I love the Pink Elephants print which has long been retired. Currently I'm loving Lilly Bell. My favorite item is probably the Get Carried Away tote. It's hard not to love all those pockets!
