There’s something about summer that says “made from natural materials”. Whether it be a straw beach tote or a linen tunic or even a wooden bangle bracelet, naturals materials can be found just about anywhere once the summer season hits. They can offer us a wide variety of colors and interesting textures. I think the trick to wearing accessories composed of natural materials is to steer clear of anything that looks too arts and crafty. Instead, look for simple shapes and muted colors… perfect for a casual, summer look.
So what would I pick if I were choosing an accessory such as the ones I just described? I really like this Mad Imports Opal AppliquÃ© Clutch I have pictured here. It’s a simple, envelope style clutch with a roundish (rather than squarish) shape. It is constructed of hand-woven sections of raffia that have been pieced together in a circular fashion, sort of like pieces of a pie. I love the wooden disc accent that adorns the front of the clutch and the super delicious pink color that they call “punch”. And although this clutch appears small in the picture, it is actually a decent size for an envelope. I could definitely see myself pairing this clutch with a cotton sundress. What does everyone else think?
The Mad Imports Opal AppliquÃ© Clutch is available in three colors: Punch, Multi, or Apple. It measures 11.5″ x 7.5″ and it retails for only $88. Find it Here at Nordstroms!
