Each summer I look for a different way to accessorize my outfits. The one element that you will find in my closet every year is some sort of straw, rattan or wicker accessory. I was first introduced to rattan when I was traveling in Europe with a friend. We were browsing inside the different boutiques when I spotted the beach bag in a display window. I crossed the cobblestoned street, went inside and I scooped that bag up so fast, people around me didn’t know what to think! A round rattan bag with colorful embellishments, it was THE PERFECT BEACH BAG!
The natural fibers of straw, rattan and wicker welcomes the warmer months and gives my favorite summer dress or linen shorts a sophisticated yet casual look. There is just something about these pieces that makes me want to rent a convertible and head to the beach. Here are some of my go-to pieces: Scala Newport Straw hat Tory Burch espadrille sandals earrings.
