January is here. Can you sense my excitement? If you’re not sensing anything, then you were probably picking up on the little bit of sarcasm I had going on there. Let’s face it. January is sort of a depressing month. The holidays are over and you have nothing but two and a half months of winter staring you down. And when the weather is as cold as it is right now, all I can do is close my eyes and imagine I am somewhere warm. You know, like Costa Rica! Wait, where did that come from? Well I came across this tote and I instantly thought of my trip to Costa Rica a few years back. Meet the Etro Garden Print Canvas Tote!
Admittedly, this tote seems very out of place in January. But it is important to remember that this is the time of year when all of the designers launch their cruise collections. You know, for people who want to look stylish on their winter vacations. Now I am not sure if this tote is part of a cruise collection. But it definitely should be! What caught my eye was the tropical print. It features some beautiful tropic birds. Toucans, parrots… yep, I saw those in Costa Rica. On the back, there is even a bird resembling a quetzal! What I like most though is the muted color palette. It has that tropical vibe, but it is more water color-ish. Translation: It doesn’t look like a cheesy Hawaiian shirt.
Retails for $750. Check it out over on Luisa via Roma!
