watermelon tote bag

I am so ready for summer I can smell the suntan lotion, feel the sand between my toes, and hear the waves crashing now (or is that my sound machine that helps me sleep?). I’ve been seeing watermelon everywhere right now in fashion and home decor and it’s beckoning a long, chill summer season perfect for BBQ’s and pool days. This trend is in tandem with the pineapple moment that is happening right now, and the combo is oh-so-refreshing! Let’s see what else bloggers and YouTubers are creating with citrus across the ole’ inter-web. Madame Citron hand-dyed this tote bag to be watermelon fresh and it’s adorable.
