This Bag is Like Carrying Summer on Your Arm

I haven't been this excited about a bag in a long time.  I generally play it pretty safe when it comes to my handbags, but this year's trend, built upon a solid foundation of tantalizing everyone in 2017, is practical AND fun.  I'm SO in!

Straw means SUMMER.  At least it does to me.  My mom had several straw bags when I was a kid and my favorite was always the one with fruit sewn on to it.   I think she bought in it Mexico, or at least that's how I remember it.  Either way, I remember running my hands over the fruit as I held the bag in my lap on the way to the pool.  I liked the texture and the bright colors and therefore from then until all eternity I will associate straw bags with Summer.

Fashion has really upped its game in 2018.  (Thanks a LOT fashion gods!)  With so many beautiful straw bags being offered I want to cry!  How am I ever to choose just one?!  They are ALL so cute!!  Which one is your favorite?  Are you ready to carry a piece of summer with you?  Click the pics for more on each bag!  (I may have already ordered one or two...)
