Happy Tuesday, guys!
Are you having a good week so far? So excited that it’s in the 50’s this week! Hooray! Spring!
Speaking of “spring” (or whatever this weird in-between season is ?)–over the weekend, I found myself, you know, just reaaaallyyy willing it to be spring outside, which is how I spend most winter weekends–so I was doing a little online perusing. One of the trends I love the most that I’m seeing everywhere again (maybe arguable THE #1 trend I love the most) is STRAW BAGS!
They’re actually not even trendy–they’re classic–they’ve had their moments in many decades past, and just happen to be popular again right this moment. Straw bags add the perfect springy/summery touch to any outfit and make anything you wear with them–POOF–instantly cuter!
Case-in-point–see my outfit above?! (It’s actually from a post last year!) It’s pretty much the most basic outfit ever. Wedgie jeans, a black tank, and my favorite black sandals. It’s my go-to combination in the summer. So the straw bag adds so much personality to what would otherwise be an understated outfit!
If you feel the same way but can’t decide which one to pull the trigger on, here are some of my favorites:
I think this is the cutest little bag and is a perfect “going out” vacation purse for when you don’t need much with you, but you want it to be festive! Can’t beat the price, either! Would be great for a festival, too!
I love this little box clutch which is great for more dressy occasions in the summer, but equally cute with a pair of white jeans and a pretty top. It would be great for a wedding and since it goes with pretty much everything, you’ll get a ton of wear out of it! The box structure will ensure it doesn’t crush when you travel, which is always essential for out of town trips!
The price really can’t be beat on this little black and white beauty! It’s so cute and I love the playful shape!
Okay so you can’t tell from the photo but this purse really is a straight-up cylinder! It’s SO fun, and the shape ensures it holds a ton more stuff than a normal purse of that size would! Love the rattan texture with the cute button tab closure.
This purse adds a pop of color and playfulness to your outfit! I love the leather strap detail as well. It makes me want a tropical vacation ASAP!
I’m not usually one drawn to super colorful things, especially in purses, but I think this clutch is the absolute perfect summer piece. I love that it also comes with a gold chain strap, if you’d rather go hands-free! It’s playful and girly without being too over the top.
7. B.P. Round Straw Purse: $49
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the price on this cutie! It’s a total designer dupe for under $50–which is essentially the definition of “GIGANTIC WIN” in my book ? Huzzah!
I’ve been searching for a new beach tote for summer and to bring on vacations with me and this one definitely fits the bill! It’s packable, takes up zero room in your suitcase, but holds a ton of beach essentials! Yas! This is a must for my upcoming Mexico girls trip! GET IN MY CART.
If you love the playful idea of a straw tote but aren’t into color, this one is a great option! The fringe detail and circular handles give off a fashionably nostaligic 70’s vibe and it’ll be your go-to for years to come!
BAH the only one on this list that sneaks over the $100 mark. BUT, it’s for good reason! I absolutely adore the retro-classic shape of this bag, and I think it’s the perfect size–not too small, not too big. (…All you need is a light jacket! ?)
Are you on the Mar Y Sol train yet? They are known for making the CUTEST straw bags around–they have so many different colors, usually stripes, with a signature bundle of pom poms. Swoon! I just found this replica at Nordstrom for less–so snap it up before it’s gone!
