Straw bag

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Sometimes I forget about the treasures stashed in the back of my closet. 
I recently pulled out this adorable straw bag....and to think I almost threw it out a few years ago!
This bag has such a "beachy" feel to screams "summer is here!" Here are some other fun straw bags I love (and they're all on sale for under $75!) HERE  HERE and HERE. OK I lied, one more HERE. Can you tell I'm having fun with this?
I needed a fun outfit to go along with a fun bag. Wearing a simple but bright tee shift dress (so comfy and versatile!).
Similar HERE and HERE...also love this lace version HERE.
I added a knit denim jacket. This is a much softer version of a traditional jean jacket. Similar HERE (only a few sizes left and just $35.40!)
Don't forget a hat to keep the sun off your face! This hat has a subtle metallic shine. 
These gold and nude sandals keep things neutral with a bright outfit and are comfy for lots of walking. 
Straw bag, don't worry! I'll never get rid of you!

    1. Thanks so much Shelbee!! I'm glad I kept it too. Don't feel bad about the things you threw out...we can't keep everything or our closets would be overflowing. Plus it gives you an excuse to shop!!! XOXO
