You know what I think when I see a great big straw tote in fun colors? I think, “Why in the world do I not go on more vacations?” Ostensibly, I was at the beach in early April for a wedding, but I was only actually on the sand for about half an hour and I never went into the ocean. Before that, it was….I don’t even remember when. And bags like the Mad Imports Ile. Ste. Marie Straw Tote make me want to change that immediately.
I think summer and straw are the only circumstances that would make this kind of pattern and these kinds of colors all in one bag ok, but I think that’s part of the beauty of warm weather and the coast. Thing go that wouldn’t normally, we can all wear our hair as it naturally is, and no one expects you to be in your totally binding city clothes. So toss me one of these totes and a linen dress, I’ll see y’all later. Or not. Just kidding. I’m not that lucky. But I might still order the bag. Buy through Shop Bop for $85.
