I am finally on solid ground and here to stay for a while. After yet another long day of traveling, I waved goodbye to Florida and hello to Ohio. But it was not easy to leave beautiful South Florida, especially after spending yesterday at the infamous and overly packed Fort Lauderdale Air and Sea Show. I toted an oversized Vera Bradley bag to the beach, but got the feeling that a designer straw bag would be even better. Not out of the world expensive, the Rafe Seagrass Basket sports a casual tote style with metallic brown laser-cut leather trim on the seagrass woven body. A straw bag screams out summer, but there needs to be a little something extra to get me wanting the bag. The dimensions are large, yet not super-sized, measuring 10 1/2″H x 17″W x 6 1/2″D. Place all your beach going accessories in a stylish straw bag and head to the beach this summer in style. If you are not near a beach, just pretend :wink: Via Neiman Marcus for $395.
