I like to say that we're "always on holiday." I created POOLSIDE for those who are dreaming of their next vacation, but also for those who are creating "vacation" moments daily, and making an effort to enjoy life every day. All of our products are created with that in mind!
Cut to the actual holiday season! When you think of fall and winter months, you don't often think of our brand. Unless you're Jane Birkin, straw has no place in the snow -- or does it? As mentioned above, living life like you're on vacation every day is truly a personal choice! We styled a few different holiday looks with our favorite POOLSIDE bags. We hope this inspires you for "holiday" dressing at any time of year!
The Disco Ball Bag
I love unique evening bags, and the POOLSIDE Disco Ball Bag can be worn in any season. A few years back, I wore this bag style to an Australian American Association Gala held in NYC in January (see: photo below). I paired the wristlet with a black strapless gown and a fluffy fox fur coat. The rhinestone bag caught everyone's eye and was a fabulous conversation starter. This bag also says "I just got back from vacation" or "I'm headed out on vacation tomorrow." At POOLSIDE, we love this mindset!

The Teddy Tote Bag
Our favorite bag this season is the POOLSIDE Teddy Tote. This cuddly fleece tote bag is our first winter tote bag style, and our "café au lait" colorway sold out immediately! Now, we're having fun styling the insanely soft "Indigo" colorway. This darker shade goes extremely well with all types of black watch and holiday plaids. Of course, it can also be paired with a simple jeans-and-sweater outfit.

The Market Tote Bag
There is nothing more seasonless than a reusable market tote bag. A visit to the grocery store or farmer's market is one of my favorite weekly activities. In order to reduce waste, I recommend that you BYOTB (bring your own tote bag). No matter the weather, our large market totes are perfect for food shopping and errands. And, since you're using these totes bag so often, I recommend personalizing your tote bag so that it's completely original and special to you!
