Summer must-have: Straw Bags
I’d say that Memorial Day is the beginning of summer getaways and the perfect summer getaway accessory is a straw bag. The fun thing about a straw bag is you can go from a super basic version and look classic and chic. Or, buy a Mexican inspired version with all of the fixings. It’s even fun to DIY a basic version by adding pins, brooches and much more.
I found an amazing DIY straw bag where the blogger actually created a handbag! Plus, the bag was inspired by Chanel! If I had the time I would so do this. So, I’d say this is also a great project for a handmade artisan.
I found a great website called Tokyo Fashion that showed so many inspirational images for what you can do to your straw bag. LOVE!
Artfire has an amazing variety of straw bags and the great part is they are great prices! I love that with vintage pieces you know everyone won’t own the same thing and that designers today are being “inspired” by these very items. So, you have an original:)
How to wear the straw bag:
Spring and summer are the only time this works. You wear this in the winter where it’s snowing or raining and this just won’t work. But, during the summer, I think you can dress a straw bag up or down with what you wear. Any occasion works. There are styles for every occasion, and like I shared there is a way to dress any style up with a brooch.
How are you wearing your straw bag? What is your go to style?
