Beach-Worthy Bags

Talk about practical: The current Portero Specials are all about chic totes that are perfect for the summer months. From durable, classic beauties like the Michael Kors woven corn husk and leather tote (above) to this great canvas striped Antigua Louis Vuitton number (below), there are a lot of bags to choose from that will never go out of style. 

Best of all, many of the bags are all sitting at bids at under $500. The Kors, above, is currently at $350 and the Vuitton is at $445. Certainly a great deal for brands with staying power. 
If you love the look of a white bag but are worried about the upkeep, consider going for Patent Leather. Although it can scratch, it can easily be wiped off in case of a spill. I personally love this Yves Saint Laurent Capri sac. The slouchy shape gives it a bohemian edge, but the patent dresses it up for day or night.
