Celebrity Wrap Up: Summer Bags

Summertime and the livin’ is easy…

Well, even though it’s not officially summer yet, but the weather sure likes to think otherwise. So in the hot summer sun we need to have handbags that is the easiest to carry around.

Personally, when it’s hot (like right about now 91 yikes!) I hate to have anything with me, around me or even on me. So for today I will introduce what makes ‘summer time livin’ easy’…with a handbag.

Just because it’s hot, doesn’t mean we have to ditch all of our fashionable accessories. Let’s keep cool, calm and collect going to the beach, work, around town, or to our favorite froyo place (everyone loves a good froyo!)

Romane Drawstring Raffia Bag – $292.00

This bag is the definition of summer in the Hamptons. This is a beach-ready handbag but it can also be for an evening stroll around town. It has leather straps and gold details to add a little fun in the sun. It’s also very easy to carry, not too big and not too small – just the perfect size for wallet, sunglasses and some tanning oil.


Bleeker Bloom Fold Over Bag – $231.00

Alright, I think I have mentioned before my obsession with crossbody bags. Even though I think crossbody bags are meant to have all year around, Summer is the one season it’s a MUST have. It’s easy to carry, super light and also stylish. The “Bleeker Bloom” has a front zip pocket and a magnetic top. You can also choose to carry it as a crossbody or adjust it to a one shoulder bag.

Donnya Shopper Tote – $35.00

It’s not officially Summer without having a Summer Tote around. This is one of my favorites because it’s so simple yet girlie. This over the shoulder tote is made of cotton and has a heart with MB signed at the bottom. This bag can be your go-to everyday bag – the best bag to have your summer memories with. (Part of the proceeds from purchasing this bag goes to support children in need around the world)

These were my style picks for the summertime. Be creative and have fun. It’s Summer don’t be afraid of having bold colors and patterns on your handbag. And remember, it’ll get hot (hopefully no hotter than today) so opt for something light to make your livin’ easy…

Stay hydrated. And always fabulous.
