Why You Need a Straw Bag this Summer

What’s your summer go-to bag? Mine is a straw bag and today I’m going to share why you need one this summer.  A straw bag is an easy and affordable way to add something summery into your wardrobe Straw bags get me excited for summer, and with the trend going strong, they’re your arm’s best accessory! I love the fun vintage vibe of this tote with its mix of tropical print and straw. It’s fully lined and the perfect size to hold all of my weekend essentials! I planned today’s outfit around the bag. The embroidered top is from Gap (thank you, Gap rewards) and my white jeans are my favorite from Loft (if you missed my post on Six Ways to Style White Pants, you can see it HERE!) To finish the look, I added the bag, wedge sandals and I was good to go!
