Monday Musings- The Perfect Spring Tote Bag
Happy Monday, ladies. Here are a few things on my radar this week. Spring has hit us full-on over the weekend and my old tote bag is feeling too ‘heavy’ for the warm weather. I took this tote to Mexico and it’ll be great to take to the pool etc, but it’s not what I want to carry around town on a daily basis. I’m envisioning that my perfect spring tote bag will be straw, rattan, or raffia.
I’d prefer it to have a zipper closure for when…not if…it flies off my front seat in the car and spews its contents all over the place.
I want it large enough to hold my purse, water bottle plus small things I pick up at the store throughout the day. The handles need to be long enough to hold by hand without touching the ground, but long enough to go over my shoulders when I want to have my hands free.
It seems like a tall order so I’ve begun the hunt and will let you know what I decided on.
Outfit of the week
This week’s outfit of the week is one that works for warm or cool spring days with a quick change of shoes. I’ve been on the hunt for a utility jacket that’s not too warm, has an adjustable drawstring to keep it from looking too boxy and that’s long enough to cover my backside.
I love this wicker handbag, and it’s seriously marked down. I already have a vintage wicker bag this size so I don’t need another plus this isn’t large enough for a tote. I’ll let you know what I buy.
Do you carry a tote bag? I find them incredibly useful and wonder how I used to survive without one.
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
