Today, I am proud to launch our new exciting collaboration with the darling beach tote company out of Florida, Hayden Reis. Leland gal for Hayden Reis totes have a practical base of durable sailcloth to hold everything but the kitchen sink for a long day at the beach. Owner, Emily Stroud and I are firm believers in a few of the same things, a love of color, practicality, and durability. Did I mention these bags are super lightweight, with darling monogram options? When Emily created this line, no detail was left behind, and when we were asked if we wanted to create a Leland gal collaboration with Hayden Reis, we were only too happy to accept.
Anyone who has ever sat by the water on a sunny day and seen the magical sparkles, knows that it transports you to a relaxing place where you can completely let go. It is this exact feeling thatis the inspiration behind the fabric "Glittering Diamonds On The Water". This particular print was a natural fit for a bag that would likely be by your side when having this experience on or off the water.
Eddie and Tommy were pumped to pose for a photo shoot on The Leelanau Peninsula to show of the bag that has become our beach staple this summer.
It is my distinct honor to be a part of Emily's collaboration line at Hayden Reis. Several of the other collaboration partnerships are with other women whom I have long since admired. Two of which are fellow features in Design her that I finally got to meet in person this year at The Southern C, Emily McCarthy and Michigan native, Mandy Rye of Waiting on Martha.
As a mom to these two precious boys, it is exciting to show them that hard work and collaboration with other people can make you stronger and build lasting friendships. Creating this bag was such a fun experience and I and look forward to other people enjoying both Leland gal and Hayden Reis as a fierce partnership by wearing our brands in style. These bags are limited edition, get them while you can right here!
