Notice my posting today was all early in the morning? Well, I must admit, I spent the day shopping and laying by the pool. I hope many of you did the same, called in sick to work or something! The crystal blue sky has my mind thinking of summer and the beach which in turn has me thinking of a perfectly cute straw bag. They are out there and can look adorable if you find the right one. I am taking a liking to the Coach Novelty Stripe Large Straw Basket because the colorful leather stripes on the border are cute and eye catching. I’d carry this beauty right onto the beach, with my iPod, sunscreen, and surf board in the other arm. A straw background with leather, suede, patent leather, and metallic leather trim, set this straw bag apart. There is a cute and easy to access front pocket with a turnlock closure. This bag makes me smile. Dimensions are 16 1/2 (L) x 10 1/2 (H) x 6 (W). Bring on the summer via Coach for $398.
