Totes and Textures

With the season of summer there's always a reason to carry a tote, whether it's to the beach or out shopping with friends. I've always loved a great summer bag and even straw totes that are incredibly oversize.

At the moment, I have been drawn to textured totes for summer. But, I want something with a bit more colour or edgier than my other straw bags, which are mostly vintage or have been recently subjected to wearing overload already.

    I believe that fabric is the right material for the summer. I love the Missoni pattern look alike bags.

  26. I love a big roomy tote - so handy for carrying everything around!

  27. Wow, I loved the zig zag clutch and the "Acapulco" tote! But I came to live for some months in winter - so I have to wait to wear summery outfits... :) I know everybody loves summer, but I always try to escape to winter! denisesplamet com
