Happy Monday babes! Today I wanted to chat about white dresses and straw bags for Spring and Summer. These two pieces, especially when paired together, are warm weather essentials!

I have chatted with you all about my love of white dresses before. It’s a topic that seems to come up every year as soon as warm weather starts to hit. They are just such a Summer essential. They are light weight, easy to wear, go great with a tan, and make you feel like you’re always on vacation. This post has one of my all time favorites in it. I linked the updated version of this dress below. I have mine and can’t wait to wear it again next Summer!
I have always wondered if you could Scotch Guard a white dress. Silly question, but I’m notorious for spilling on myself. I want to wear all of the white dress while I eat marinara sauce and drink red wine. Does anyone know the answer to this?
I got my first straw bag in college, when J.Crew first started selling their iconic straw market tote. They still sell it now, and it’s linked below. I beat that thing to DEATH. There is just something so light and easy about using a straw bag, and when you’re not using them, they make for super cute decor! I love displaying my structured ones in my room or closet. I have one that I keep in Avery’s room full of stuffed animals during the Winter.
I love this red straw tote because it is a brighter take on the traditional straw bag. I generally buy tan bags, but this one is such a fun pop of color. Plus, it matches any white dress! I love the structure of the bag, plus the generous size of the handles, so I can wear it comfortably over my wrist. Straw totes are perfect to use as a handbag, beach bag, or farmer’s market tote. Can you just picture Carrie Bradshaw strolling home with fresh flowers in hers?
