The Last Straw


Yesterday’s post was all about fall (you can check it out HERE!) and might have bummed me out a little.

Why does summer have to go by so fast!?

Today, I’m putting on the brakes and taking a step back. I’ve posted a few times now about my favorite summer accessory — my CULT GAIA ARK BAG. I get at least one compliment on it every time I wear it. Although the summer season is about 3/4 of the way done, I’m constantly looking for the next “it bag” that I’ll wear to death. It doesn’t need fancy labels or a sky-high, designer price tag. I would actually prefer it to be an under-the-radar find that oozes style from across the room.

Casually, of course.



I think I figured it out. I want a basket bag/circle bag hybrid!

I’m drawn to unique modern pieces and a straw/woven bag has so much texture and interest. It’s only natural that the two could combine into the ideal summer accessory. I love that this design is available in a number of variations. From large tote, to small cross body, a circle straw bag seems like a no brainer.

I’m just bummed I didn’t think of this sooner!


I’ve narrowed down my search to an under $150 FREE PEOPLE find — the SOL CROSSBODY BAG. From the lined interior, to the rich color options (I’m leaning towards black), I think this is the winner. Most importantly, given its more structured shape and refined style, I also think this bag could easily transition into early-fall before it gets stored away for the next summer season.

What are your thoughts — is it too late to snatch this baby up?

Have you wrapped up your summer purchases for the season?
