I know I’m not alone when I say that I’m in love with the straw handbag trend this year. There are so many fun styles to try. I’m lucky enough to live in a place where we can visit the beach almost year round so I purchased quite a few this season. Circle and straw handbags have been a huge trend and I’ve been loving them all. Today I’ve rounded up my favorite styles at all price points and I’ve even found some great sales for you. (Use code: EVENT18 for up to 25% off your entire Shopbop purchase and code FORYOU for an extra 20% off at GAP)
This is probably the most practical of them all. My exact bag is on sale for 20% off with code FORYOU. You can also save up to 50% off the remainder of your purchase which is a great deal if you ask me. I absolutely love this bag and you’ve been seeing it on Instagram a lot lately. It holds my full sized camera, wallet, sunglasses, lipstick(s) and more without spilling over the top. It has a crossbody strap that can be detached which is also super convenient. The only complaint I have is that there is no closure at the top. Shop all of my favorites here:
We have an oversized tote from Target that we absolutely love that unfortunately I couldn’t find in stock to link up. These can be used as handbags or for the beach or pool (which is what we use ours for). Totes are great for carrying everything (#momlife). However, I don’t find them as practical for everyday use because they don’t have a top closure. It’s all personal preference though. Here are some of my favorite beach and handbag styles:
These bags range in price from retailer to retailer. I just purchased this one and am obsessed with it. I opted for a bow closure instead of a snap or buckle because I feel like it will be easier to use but again, it’s all personal preference. These are perfect for vacation but due to the small round shape they aren’t the best for everyday use. They are super cute though and that has to count for something, right?
This was my first trendy bag purchase of the season. I had seen these all of Instagram last year and was so happy to find this affordable version this year. I was pleasantly surprised with how much it can hold. This bag was able to fit my camera, wallet and a few other small items (all strategically placed) in at once. Some people complain that they are see through but it doesn’t really bother me.
My exact pom pom clutch is about 2-3 years old but I’ve found a ton of similar ones for you. I get tons of compliments every time I use it. I love the colorful pom poms and it’s super lightweight. If rainbow pom poms aren’t your thing I’ve also found some other adorable options like this one (currently 20% off with code EVENT18)
