SCOUT Bags Giveaway!

An exciting Wednesday post today: Jenn and I are hosting a fun giveaway with SCOUT Bags! We’re both huge fans of the brand–everything is so practical yet chic, and once you have some of these bags in your arsenal, you’ll wonder what took you so long to jump on board. With summer right around the corner, we’re giving away three fun pieces to make help make your season even more festive and organized. More and how to enter, below!

SCOUT is a DC-based company (Georgetown, to be exact, so naturally we had to make it the backdrop of our shoot) that makes fashionable yet practical bags for everyday wear. Their summer collection just came out and I’m pretty much obsessed with the prints (especially Rock the Boat!). I’ve been using this bag almost daily to carry misc. things to and from work…a change of clothes for the gym, my lunch, random notebooks or papers on class days, a can or two of seltzer, etc. All of SCOUT’s products are made of this water resistant material, which has been a lifesaver on the ridiculously rainy days we’ve been having. It also means they’re essentially spill-proof, which is a nice perk for travel bags.

To celebrate the start of summer and help spread our love of SCOUT, Jenn and I are giving away a cooler, makeup bag, and weekender in a print of your choice (I highly recommend mixing and matching…despite the varying patterns, everything just seems to fit together nicely!) Hop on over to Instagram later this morning to enter there, and fill out the widget below for more entries!

The weekender is large enough to tote a getaway’s worth of stuff, yet small enough to be shoved under the airplane seat…and since it’s easily wiped clean, easily doubles as a beach bag. The cooler in Rock the Boat is pretty much the best thing ever…it’s one of their newly released patterns and I unsurprisingly cannot get enough of the blue + white. Not only is this the only cooler you need for picnics, BBQs, and beach trips, but it’d also be great to carry to the grocery store if you’re planning on grabbing lots of frozen food or cold beers (it’ll fit a 24-pack–just sayin’). City folk who have to walk to the store, I’m sure you’re with me on this! And last but not least, this makeup bag…at under $20, it’s a great deal and makes a sweet gift for a friend (or any woman in your life). If you’re looking for great grad or hostess gifts, I can’t recommend any of these more!

PS: On the hostess front, the wine totes are a great thing to have on hand next time you’re taking gifting wine. They’re under $10 and are a thoughtful + practical way to jazz up a bottle!

    These bags are so cute. A lot of the girls at the high school where I work use them to carry clothes and other items for sports practice, but I think they’re honestly great for any age/activity! Love all of the patterns!
