THE BAG OF SUMMER

A popular accessory of this summer, and debatably every single summer, is the straw bag. That being said, we decided to dedicate today's post to the straw bag and some different looks that it can be paired with, besides the practical beach look that we feel it is most associated with. Sporting different straw totes and two completely different looks, we showcase two of our own takes on how to rock this seasonal accessory.

 
SOPHIE AND CHARLOTTE BICKLEY YIN 2MY YANG STRAW BAGS POST THUMBNAIL
 

SOPHIE'S LOOK:

I went with a sophisticated vibe with a black and white themed look to go with my statement Kayu Pinata fringed straw bag, wearing a fancy(ish) looking, silk patterned Diane Von Furstenberg 'Ireland' jumpsuit with details like a high neck, an open back, and wide legs. I wore and a pair of clunky black peep toe shoes, which you could barely see since my jumpsuit pants were so wide and long. Adding a little spunk to the look, I decided to throw on one of my favorite Choked by a Thread everyday denim chokers, giving my black/white/sophisticated outfit a little bit of unexpected edge. Then, continuing to stick with the sophisticated look of my outfit, I threw on a pair of my gorgeous classic black Saint Laurent round sunglasses

I decided to go with a sophisticated outfit with my statement straw bag accessory look, but I could have easily gone another route, outfit-wise. To make my 'statement piece straw bag look' less sophisticated, I could’ve worn a beach cover-up with a pair of wedged or flat sandals and I'm certain that the bag would've gone perfectly with a casual vibe look as well…that just wasn’t the vibe I was going for in today's post :)

CHARLOTTE'S LOOK: 

YAY! Straw bags aren't only good for the beach. Soph & I are both currently obsessed with one of the Summer's hottest trends: the straw bag! I love straws bags - not only because they look great with a lot of different summer looks, but they are also so easy to throw your stuff in - they fit anything you could possibly need - whether you're packing for the beach or elsewhere! This season there have been a variety of styles, sizes, an colors sold by some of our favorite brands- there's a straw bag to suit everyone's straw bag needs.

I paired my adorable and colorful square pom pom straw bag with a Lost in Lunar two piece set outfit, making my look perfect for a day of shopping in South Hampton, while simultaneously being perfect for dinner out with my family afterwards. This Lost in Lunar off the shoulder top & matching Lost In Lunar pants are the perfect easy, breezy summer outfit. My featured square pom pom straw bag is no longer available however, I've linked a super cute alternative! Find linked, the beautifully embellished Muzungu Sisters woven pom pom straw bag...the perfect fashionista piece to take you from the beach all the way to a day out on the town. Im obsessed! For shoes, I went with my go to Michael Kors lace up wedge sandals, easy to pair with a variety of outfits - and for sunglasses I wore a pair of white Wildfox round 'Dakota' sunglasses, pulling my entire look together
