I’ve been not he hunt for the perfect straw tote which was being a daunting task because even though I live basically at the beach a straw tote will always be need but I didn’t want to spend an arm and leg for one. Let me rephrase that, if any of the ones I found fit all the requirements I had I would have actually spent the money but I always found something wrong with them. I didn’t want one that was too big because I didn’t want to just use it as a beach tote, I already have a few of those carry-alls. I didn’t want it to have a short handle because I wanted the option to throw it off my shoulder and I think the issue I was finding the hardest was to find just a plain straw bag. No tassels or bedazzles or if they had it I wanted the option to remove them. I love tassels but I don’t want them all the time. I didn’t want a patterned tote I just wanted a simple straw bag, it was like finding a needle in a hay stack but I finally found one. H&M of all places had this hidden gem and it’s under $30!
As you can assume, it’s now a staple in my summer wardrobe as are pastels and plaid, I mean duh it’s summer. I have these shorts in I think every color made. J.Crew makes the perfect light-weight shorts that are too freaking short and fit me perfectly. And what summer outfit would be complete without a pair of Jacks 🙂
What are your summer staples??
