I know it is a little early to be thinking about beach totes, but this one is just so gorgeous I couldn’t resist! You know what though? A straw tote isn’t just for the beach. In fact, straw and raffia handbags are a popular item during both the spring and summer months. There is just something about straw that feels so right during this time of year. They have this light and airy feeling to them that is perfect for those warm sunny days where you want to dress more casually. Stay tuned for my post about beach totes. For now, I want to feature the Michael Kors Collection Santorini Tote!
What I like about this tote is that it doesn’t scream beach tote. In fact, this tote is sophisticated enough to double as an everyday bag. It has a straw body with a great basket weave pattern. I think the polishing feature though is the contrasting leather straps. This particular version has black straps with contrasting brown stitching, but I have seen versions with colored straps as well. And even though this tote is unlined, it manages to have a shape that is a little bit more defined.
The Michael Kors Santorini Tote is available here at SHOPBOP!
