    Default Summer Fabrics: Linen and Burlap Handbags

    During those warm summer months, nothing beats a brightly colored straw tote! It is the ultimate summer-only accessory! The only problem is that they aren't appropriate for all occasions. Sometimes you need a chic style, even a professional-looking one. After all, many of us bagistas have that annoying thing called work that we have to go to and it doesn't care if it happens to be a gorgeous summer day outside or not. But not to worry, you can still have a summer-only handbag and feel very work-appropriate at the same time! How? Try a classic, structured style in a neutral summer fabric! My favorites are linen and burlap. These fabrics are light and luxurious, yet so unexpected. Pictured below are a few of my favorite styles, check them out!

    Rebecca Minkoff Linen Morning After Mini Bombe Bag - $374
    A favorite among Minkettes, the Morning After Mini Bombe is a great classic style. I love the oatmeal linen canvas paired with the contrasting black patent leather trim. Sleek and simple, this style is perfect for carrying your everyday essentials!

    Alexander Wang Burlap Small Emile Tote - $650
    A relatively simple style by Alexander Wang standards, the Small Emile Tote is completely void of studs or heavy hardware. I love the khaki burlap and simple black leather trim. Its only source of adornment are some structured corner plates. This bag would be perfect for someone looking to make a statement without all the added flare!

    I also like the price on it. Since it's not all leather, it's a lot cheaper.

    True. It's because you can only wear these bags for like 3 months then you have to retire them! lol

    I had to double check that price of the Bombe.. $374! That's great.
