Summer Essential- Straw Bags

This story ran 2 years ago and is still one of my favorites. As we head into Memorial Day weekend, I am bleaching my vast collection of white cotton skirts, shorts, khurtas and tees, pulling out my straw bags and dusting off my K. Jacques. The weather may not cooperate, but I will be ready when it does.

Straw bags at Anthropology used as shopping baskets

After years of carrying canvas totes, I am loving this light and earthy alternative! I keep my large straw bags in the car and use them for groceries instead of the reusable ones from Whole Foods. And needless to say, they are chic at the beach stuffed with towels, sun block and an iPad!

  • Agree, beach essential definitely! Mine is so heavy so it ended up in storage. Need to find a lighter one 🙂

  • I love channeling pre-Hermes Jane Birkin with a straw bag. Got a great big one from Lands’ End recently. It’s fantastic.
