Comfy for the summer, these Louis Vuitton Amaranthe Thongs are gorgeous treads from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

Perfect for concert-going, shopping, or the shore, these beauties are sure to make your pedicure stand out. The monogram pattern is very discreet and classy, providing a great detail to the patent leather.

Tory Burch Climbing Rope Channing Tote in Cobalt

Full of summer fun, this tote is great to throw in all of your accouterments while you walk to the shore or boardwalk for lunch. This Tory Burch bag was a sale item I found on Burch's first-ever Facebook App sale. This Climbing Rope Channing Tote was for sale at a great price, so I decided to splurge for summer!

The interior of the bag is very spacious. Easily fitting as many magazines as you need for your fun in the sun, the bag can also accomodate your laptop or electronic tablet. I don't encourage working on the beach, but it is one of the best places to cross some things off of your checklist--and luckily, this bag has enough space to fit all of your work materials, too.

Right now, Tory Burch has a great collection of summer bags on their website. I definitely encourage you to check them out!

Who Styles It Best: Kate Spade or Louis Vuitton?

Who Styles It Best: Kate Spade or Louis Vuitton?

Perhaps the most interesting similarity I've seen recently is the Kate Spade "Wish You Were Here Coal" tote and the Summer 2010 Louis Vuitton Ailleurs collection totes. As soon as I saw it, I was strongly reminded of the Summer 2010 Vuittons. While not a simple imitation, it is very reminiscent.

As my readers may know by now, I am completely in LOVE with Louis, so I must say I'd definitely prefer the Ailleurs over the Kate Spade tote. Having recently acquired a Kate Spade iPhone and iPad case, my opinion of the KSNY brand is not a negative one, but I think the green handles and the green bottom of the Kate Spade tote lessens its "pop" and overall glamour.

Which would you choose?
