Thirty-One was started just over 10 years ago by Cindy Monroe. She wanted to provide a way for women to own their own business while also allowing them the flexibility to be at home with their families. I personally love what she has done with the company over the years. She keeps up with the every changing fashions of today with new styles and patterns.
The photo above is of the All-Day Organizing Tote in Bubble Bloom. I absolutely love this new pattern because it's so bright and cheerful. It's the perfect tote for carrying around anything you need on the go. I'm planning to use it to pack up towels and outdoor needs when we head out on the boat this summer. The inside pockets are perfect for sunglasses, sunscreen, and a little first aid kit. It zips shut on the top holding everything in, but doesn't zip tightly closed so if I put our damp towels inside I don't have to worry about them stinking by the time we get home. It would also be a great tote for a day out at the park with the kids. You could pack sand toys, snacks, an extra set of clothes for a little one, and still have room! I have had several pieces from Thirty-One for quite a few years and besides getting a little dirty from use you can't even tell that they aren't new. The quality is outstanding and the colors don't fade with use either. I can quite honestly say they are my favorite go-to place for fashionable totes and purses.
Another great thing I've learned about Thirty-One is that they care about others. And to show this they've even created a special owl embroidery option to celebrate the hard work nurses and teachers perform everyday. I received a Picnic Thermal with this cute personalization option on it and thought it was awesome. What a great way to show your children's teachers just how much you appreciate all of the hard work they do. Or the school nurse for all she does through out the year. The owl icon with personalization is just over 4" W x 4" H. I think it dresses up the Picnic Thermal very nicely. And this would be a great item for them to take their lunches to school in too!
Thirty-One will be offering the special owl embroidery through May 31. This embroidery is available with a predetermined phrase or including personalization for only $5 with the half off personalization special! Choose from the following styles: Large Utility Tote, Spirit Cinch Sac, Picnic Thermal Tote, Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote in Spirit Colors.
