Best Summer Bags: Splurges and Steals!

The official start of summer is upon us and I am SO excited to be back talking about bags, bags and more bags!  I was inspired to add a post about summer bags after confirming plans for an upcoming beach getaway I am so very much looking forward to–Cabo here I come!  I’ve pulled together some fabulous summer bag styles that I am lovin’ right now and seriously considering adding to my collection.  Ok, being completely honest–I’ve already purchased a couple of these, but no real surprise there :)!  I am only showing 8 here, but there are so many awesome options available right now and I’m all about sharing when it comes to great fashion finds and style ideas and I’m so excited now to share my summer bag picks and purchases with you!  There just may be part 2 of this post!

First things first, #1, the bamboo tote– so cute!  This bag style isn’t new, but a silhouette made super popular with the Cult Gaia a couple years ago. It’s still available now as a very on fashion tote, but at an awesomely affordable price point! I snagged mine from Amazon! With such a range of price points to choose from I decided to add it to my collection! Truly super low investment and such a great look!  I have the more neutral natural bamboo version, shown below but it’s available in other colored wood styles and acrylic options, the skinny scarf is optional!  I love #2! The Rebecca Minkoff Fan Tote, this is the large canvas option, but there are SO many versions and colors of this bag– the mini, there is a nylon option, there is even a clear version! OK, 4 and 5 are obviously very similar but I couldn’t decide which was cuter, so I included both! These are from Street Level brand, but there are so many options available this season in these easy to carry rattan styles–enjoy! #6 is my absolute favorite right now and is super fun, BUT, definitely the priciest out of all the options. However,! So fabulous, I can see it being paired effortlessly with some khaki paper bag waist shorts and white tank or an off the shoulder maxi dress for a night out! Chrissy Teigen loves it too!!
