Spring bags to lighten up your look
Spring can be a fickle time of year, weather-wise. One day it’s tee-shirt weather, the next we’re back in coats and boots. One of my favorite ways to make even layered-up outfits feel more spring-like is to swap out my leather bag for a straw, rattan or bamboo bag.
I’ve had this bag for a few years now, and still love it. While this isn’t a bag I’d use for a day of running errands (I’ll opt for a crossbody for those days), it does provide a nice accent for my “going out” outfits. And it’s really lightweight to carry.
Straw, wicker and bamboo bags evoke a lighthearted attitude that feels perfect for spring. (Think of a young Jane Birkin with her iconic wicker basket bag.) They’re often quite affordable, too.
I really like the fun macrame netting on this one (also in camel and black) and the drawstring top closure.
A good-looking straw tote for those days when “the essentials” include a bit more than phone/keys/wallet…
This adorable bucket bag has both a shoulder and crossbody strap.
The round bamboo handles are a nice detail here.
When one color isn’t enough…
and here’s the Jane Birkin-esque option!
