Today’s post is a special one that I’ve never done before, and I’m excited to share it with you! Lisa of Shine your Light, Kris of Driven by Decor, Pam of Simple Details and Jennifer of Dimples and Tangles do a Five Favorite posts every month and they always ask a guest blogger to contribute. This month is all about Summer Essentials, and I was thrilled that they asked me to join them! Summer is definitely a favorite season of mine, and I love that I get a chance to share my favorite summer essentials with you.
Spring and summer fashion is so fun! Breezy tops, flirty sundresses, sandals (with bright pedicures!), cropped jeans, cut-offs, and straw bags. I love a good straw bag! Is there any bag that screams summer more than this one?!
Larger ones are great as totes to the beach or on vacation, but a small or medium sized one makes a great handbag for when the weather heats up. Made from raffia or straw, they are lightweight and can hold a ton. In fact, the straw bag originated in France. Women would take large woven straw bags to the farmer’s markets to load up with fresh fruits and vegetables. Leave it to the French to make even going to the market fashionable!
