Since the start of the summer I’ve been favoring informal canvas or straw bags over my more normal leather accessories. I love summer bags that can be thrown around without much care on summer activities at the beach or on picnics in the grass. The last thing I want is to worry about ruining my expensive purse on summer adventures. Therefore these four bags are my top pics for the summer, let me show you…
This colorful one of a kind Shigra bag is handcrafted by women in Ecuador. It’s woven of cabuya straw and very tough.
It gives a pop of color to any simple outfit! It’s new for this year and I got it a while back from Anthropologie.
This Marc by Marc Jacobs canvas tote is perfect for days when I need to bring my laptop or a bunch of books as it’s quite roomy.
I love the playful pattern and the fact that it has a long shoulder strap. I got it last spring and have used it so much.
This neon pink canvas bag is actually a shopping bag from Free People. I love that they don’t use plastic bags, this one is so good to re-use!
This will be my beach bag of this year where I’ll stuff towels and sunscreen for a lazy day on the beach.
Perhaps my most frequently used bag as of right now is this straw tote with a lockable top. It’s a vintage find from Etsy and goes perfectly with almost all of my summer dresses.
