Beachy Style with Golden Tote

There is absolutely no better place to rock a pair of
pineapple culottes than Florida, am I right?
I’ve teamed up with Golden Tote, a “surprising” new way to
shop, to bring you these two beachy looks.
What’s so surprising about Golden Tote, you ask?

Golden Tote is a monthly subscription “tote bag” service that surprises you with new pieces each month.  I don’t know about you guys, but I love surprises! The fun thing about Golden Tote is that, depending on the bag you buy, you get to choose one piece you love and the rest is filled with surprises.
Totes range from the $49 tote (1 pick & 1 surprise), the $99 (4 surprises) & the $149 tote (2 picks & 3-4 surprises).
A dedicated team of designers and personal stylists work with you beforehand, to carefully curate your style.  This way you most likely will be surprised with something right in line with your individual style.  
Today’s two looks are styled from Golden Tote’s $49 tote.  I had so much fun browsing all of the options for my first choice.

I went a little out of my comfort zone, choosing these pineapple culottes, but I’m so glad I did! They were perfect for a dinner out during while on vacation. 

As culottes can be pretty tricky to style, I decided to pair
these with a simple white crop top.  I’ve
also seen culottes styled with button down shirts, peplum tops &
turtlenecks.  I’m thinking I may be able
to transition this pair into the fall with a white turtleneck. Pineapples don’t
have to be seasonal, right?
The second item in my Golden Tote, the top pictured below,
was a complete surprise! As soon as I pulled it out of the tote bag, I knew it
would be the perfect top to pair with white jeans during our beach trip.  The bright multi-colored print also gave off a fun festive tropical vibe.

I usually don’t gravitate towards bold & busy prints, so this was definitely something new for me. 
Can’t say that I didn’t like it, and now I’m thinking that I want to incorporate more printed pieces into my wardrobe. 😉

I especially love the way the print wraps around the
neckline.  I didn’t need to
pair a necklace with this top, as the design at the neckline is just stunning by itself!
I paired this look with turquoise beaded earrings, to play
off the colors in the top, and added some metallic & wooden bangles to
match my sandals.
A perfectly cute & casual beachy look, if I do say so
myself! 

For those of you nowhere close to the beach & feeling
the fall temperatures at their finest right now – not to worry! Golden Tote’s current
selection of styles are right on trend for the fall season.  
Side note:  I currently have my eye on a certain chambray & embroidered top, in Golden Tote’s Boutique, that I don’t think I can live
without!
If you’re the type that loves a good surprise (really who
isn’t!?) then definitely check out Golden Tote! It’s one of those unique brands
that puts the “fun” fashion!
