In the US, Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer and all the beachside fun that comes with the season. The PurseBlog team is going to take most of today to relax and enjoy the advent of season vacation season, but if you’re stuck indoors and want some bags to consider, take a look at these three reasonably priced, sun-ready straw totes: The Mar Y Sol Panama Striped Tote, Club Monaco Tall Straw Tote and Elliot Man 24/7 Tote.

Now that PurseBlog favorite ShopBop carries Club Monaco clothing and accessories online, a whole new world of contemporary, mid-priced clothing is open to people who are too lazy to go to the mall. (Raises hand.) The line offers a lot of covetable pieces, but for current trends, the Club Monaco Audrey Shoulder Bag is among your best bets, particularly for less than $300.
Fall collections are all about clean lines and camel, and for anyone who isn’t ready to buy into those ideas with a larger cash investment, this bag offers a functional, on-trend solution at a reasonable price.
