There’s not much for me to say in regards to straw bags and why you should get one (or two), other than that…well, I have five! I don’t regret purchasing any one of them either. Whether hanging on the coat rack in our bedroom, staged adorably with scarves and such in my closet or…oh, hey…on ME…they never fail to brighten my day — there’s something about them that evokes joy.
Also, at this time of year, just even seeing one around the house makes me breathe, sigh and let yet another metaphorical layer fall…leaving me breathing-in these dreamy spring days and poised to relax into the lazy (“lazy”) summer days, the ones where the sun seemingly never sets. aaaaaah.
I do find myself feeling a bit like I’m letting spring down right now though, because I had so many plans to go, do, wear all the outfits and appreciate spring to the fullest, but…here we are. It is. It just is. I can either wallow in my own disappointment or I can make this time what I want it to be, in a way.
Straw Handbags: 30 Woven Purses & Totes For A Fashionable Entrance
So, I’ve decided to stop caring about the fact that I can’t do XYZ with my cute straw bags and instead, actually do ABC with them…all while still giving spring its due. For instance, take them on those necessary errands, random walks, picnics and such. Also, never disregard the true power of styling a bag or two made of straw around your home. They really are so charming. Take it from me.
Also, let’s remember, friends. This too shall pass. Once we all come out of this, we will need a really great bag, like this best-selling Open Weave Tote, to carry as we re-enter into the world. You know I’m right. It’s called a fashionable entrance…and I don’t think there’s really anything we need more right now than a FASHIONABLE F*IN ENTRANCE.
Until then, keep on living…and peruse the pretties below!
16 Cute Handbags, Satchels, Crossbody Purses, Backpacks
This one is a gem because you can wear it on your wrist or hold it by the hand. Not only that — the pearls and black ribbon detail.
This one had me at rainbow tassels.
A box clutch with the most darling ribbon on top.
Can’t get over this one. I could foresee myself bringing it everywhere…weddings, parties, dates, girls’ night, random trip to the store (why not?).
Kate Spade always creates the most charming bags. This yellow and pink # is no exception.
Like a picnic basket, but small enough to be carried…also, the tie insert is genius.
I want this bag. It’s just so cool.
A handle of beads? Why, yes. Thank you! There’s also a really pretty white option.

Doesn’t look like it, but this is more of a boxy, structured bag (you have to see the other pictures, so click on over).
Very unique and Summer-y.
I have a very similar backpack and I LOVE IT.
14. Calypso Backpack
This one is amazing, with the contrasting color…and the drawstring top (nothing will fall out!)
Same goes for this lovely backpack…love the cream color against the straw. Also, the buckles on the front are pretty!
A mini backpack! The contrast of the black against the straw…love it.

This is just a FUN bag — and why not have some fun??
I have one like this one and YES. It comes in very handy all summer long.

Please see the other pictures of this bag, b/c it’s bigger than you’d think, and I love the bucket style of it.
Fresh and nautical.
The shape of this bag is amazing. (sold out now. booooo). Here is another bag from Draper James!
