Generally speaking, a Chanel bag is not at the top of the list when packing accessories for a beach getaway, but nothing screams summer vacation more than this Chanel bag!
While I was in Tulum, I headed over to the Nomade Hotel for lunch (yes, you need to add this to your Tulum to-do list) and afterward, we decided to take a stroll along the beach to snap some photos. Luckily, it was sunny blue skies the entire time I was there even though the weather forecast had predicted thunderstorms.
Anyway, my OOTD was houndstooth shorts with a rope belt and a velvet off-the-shoulder crop top. My accessory of choice was pearls! Of course I had to carry my sand-filled Chanel flap bag with the pearl handle. I coordinated my bag with these amazing oversized Rosantica pearl hoop earrings and layered on some pearl and chain bracelets also from the brand.
Pearls have always screamed polished and elegant until now. I love that designers have managed to bring pearls back with a modern twist so they can be worn with a variety of outfits — like this pair of oversized hoops from Rosantica are so fun and easy to style!
As for the Chanel bag, the juxtaposition of a traditional flap bag silhouette and a pearl handle combined with PVC and filled with sand is just pure genius. This whole look and location is literally the hashtag of the Chanel S/S 19 collection, #ChanelByTheSea 😉
