White Dress and Straw Bag

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!

White Dresses

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?

Straw Bags

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?

I received my bag c/o Cappelli Straworld.  All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own, as always.  I only work with brands and products that I would buy myself.  You can check out Cappelli Straworld’s full catalogue of bags and hats here.
