With a sunny weather all week long, I have already switched to summer mode. So, I took out my little wicker bag. Not super secure for shopping or sightseeing, but very cute for ballads, weddings, etc. Mine, pictured above, comes from Mango (unfortunately sold out but you will inevitably find similar ones everywhere, for example here or there.)
Why is it time to buy one? Because they are everywhere this year but if well chosen, they will be timeless.
How to wear a straw bag ? With sandals or sneakers, with a folk dress or blouse. Also works well with my eyelet tops and chinos.
To choose your raffia / straw / wicker bag, make sure that it closes well and is pretty enough to consider taking it everywhere. Otherwise, another option is the big shopping bag that will be used to carry groceries or beach stuff. In that case, make sure that the handles are strong and comfortable (also avoid paper straw that will not react well to water).
Here is a small selection that I hope will inspire you. I also made a board on Pinterest to continue the selection.
