Spring and summer fashion is so fun. Breezy tops, flirty dresses, sandals (with bright pedicures!), cropped jeans, cut-offs, and straw totes. I love a good straw tote! Is there any bag that screams summer more than this one? Larger ones are great as totes to the beach or on vacation, but a medium sized one makes a great handbag for when the weather heats up. Made from raffia or straw, they are lightweight and hold a ton. In fact, the straw bag originated in France. Women would take large woven straw bags to the farmer's markets to load up with fresh fruits and vegetables (they are still great for that too!)
I love the idea of just switching to this bag on June 1st and carrying it everyday for the entire summer. There are plenty of them around, in every price point. I've even seen them on Etsy!
I love the easy-breezy attitude, just like summer!
