Summer Straws under $50.00

Summer Beach Bag $18.04 JavaSpirit on Etsy

I love a straw handbag for Summer. They tend to be so lightweight and breezy and perfect for the warmer days ahead.

While I ‘m usually a major proponent of investing in a high quality handbag for your daily wardrobe, I think that we can loosen our standards when it comes to anything made of straw -especially if the straw handbag in consideration is really more for decoration and completing that Summer outfit.

Here are 4… fun, breezy and oh-so -affordable options to consider all under $50.00. Enjoy!

National Handbag Day-Yeh!

Category: Fashion

I had no idea this was a thing- but today is National Handbag Day! Who Knew?! Now you and I both do.

There’s something about the perfect handbag that can really make an outfit and lift your mood. Handbags come in a bevy of beautiful colors, styles and shapes and if you’re anything like me you have more than a few selections in your closet.

As an added bonus, I’ve attached a handbag “glossary” aka fashion vocabulary (courtesy of enerie.com) should you desire a refresher on handbag styles by name.

Handbags are a  closet staple and one that will last for years given the proper care,upkeep and most of all “handling.” Here are a few handbag images to keep you inspired….
