Well… I am certainly disappointed. The first day of spring has come and gone, yet here I am wondering when the heck spring is actually going to get here. And to think that silly groundhog said we would have only 4 more weeks of winter. Since then, I have counted 7 weeks. It has been cold and snowy almost that entire time. You lied to me Mr Groundhog! So in an effort to cheer myself up, I thought I would take a look at some warm weather handbags — particularly, straw totes! They are perfect for a sunny day at the beach or a casual trip to your local farmers market. Plus they tend to be more on the affordable side. So you won’t feel so bad at the end of the season if your tote was loved a little too much and is beginning to unravel. Personally, I would prefer that over an expensive white leather handbag because I would stress so much over keeping it clean! So if you are looking to lift your spirits and give yourself something to look forward to using this summer, then check out these lovely straw totes featured below. The selection is just starting to fill out so these are just some of my favorites so far!
The vacationing season and those R&R days call for tote bags that are maintenance free and that wont make you cringe if you get some water splashing on it. Canvas and PVC pieces always make great alternative to your more expensive treasures, but straw totes always seem to fit the theme to the best extent. Surprisingly, straw totes vary through design. Take for example the strong geometric patterns of the Panama Stripe Straw Tote by Mar y Sol.
I have a little obsession with adorable small clutches. I’m starting to realize that it’s much easier to carry around a bag that’s smaller than a big bag. Larger handbags are already heavy as it is, then once you put all your fashionable accessories inside it weighs even more.
Florida is already hot and we are promised an even hotter summer. The last thing I want to do at the moment is carry around a handbag that acts as a weight. Having anything extra on you that’s heavy will just make you sweat more in this heat.
The Mar Y Sol “Gigi” Flower Clutch is the cutest clutch to have for the Summer months. It has that tropical look to it and it’s small enough to carry around with you everywhere without the hassle.
