If there’s one thing that just screams summer, it’s the quintessential straw tote. They’re perfect for the farmers’ market and the beach, but I think they can also replace your normal handbag for a chic city look (a la Jane Birkin), so long as you switch out your coverup for something a bit more tailored. There are so many amazing options out there right now; J.Crew has a classic version, this Kayu tote with colorful details is super fun, and this great textured one is pretty ideal. Tory Burch always come out with a great straw tote each season, and this years is no exception (I’m planning to wait until it goes on sale – I understand that it’s handwoven, but close to $500 for a straw tote is a little crazy).
I have two or three straw bags already, but they’re all getting a little raggedy and worn looking so I’m in the market for a new one. We are heading to France tomorrow (!!) and my plan is to find the perfect one in some small little market somewhere, so wish me luck. If i don’t then I think it’ll be that J.Crew one for me.
Have a good day!
