So, I bought a really cool straw-ish hat from J. Crew a few weeks ago. You know, one of those big, beachy hats and I absolutely love it. And when I say I love it, I mean I love it but have yet to wear it. The day will come though, I promise you and myself that. So speaking of straw hats, I can’t help but notice how fun and prevalent they are during the summer months. These months are also the months when I see more and more straw handbags. At times I am adamantly against the straw handbags I see and other times I am completely enamored.

Rafe Carrie Rattan Clutch

The Rafe Carrie Rattan Clutch is a straw-esque clutch that I am enamored with. I think this clutch is nothing less than perfect for a hot summer night. And while this might shock you as much as it initially shocked me, I actually find the enamel elephant on the flap absolutely precious. It is cute, fun and flirty – all things I think of when I think about the summer. I might actually have to pick one of these up for me very soon! Buy through Luna Boston for $295.

    I’m glad you love the clutch. The inside is just as precious with the brocade lining and it also has a drop in chain so after a few cocktails, you can sling it over your shoulder.

    I have to admit, I love the elephant detail. I usually hate anything made of straw, but this isn’t that bad.
