Straw Totes




 1. Calvin Klein (HERE), 2. + 3. Tory Burch (HERE)


Hey Sweetles!
 
I hope you had an amazing long weekend! I spent mines lounging by the pool and devouring the stack of Marie Claire magazines that has been swallowing  my coffee table. Since it's back to work today, I thought I'd pop in and share one of my summer must-haves to give you a little break from mourning the weekend. 


If you see me around town this summer, I'll most likely be sporting a straw tote. I like that they come in so many gorgeous shapes, sizes, and price points. But, I LOOVVEE the fact that they manage to look chic both on and off the beach. Here are a few of my favorite summer straw bags.  These are sure to take you from sand-and-surf to summer soirĂ©e.

Love,
Jillian
