Gotta Luv a Straw Bag: Affordable Straw & Bamboo Summer Bag Roundup

What's the one accessory that is a constant on your Instagram feed {as seen on other bloggers} & possibly on your summer-accessory wishlist? It's probably a straw/wicker/or bamboo bag!

They're so trendy for the warmer days, but they can also be kind of pricey. If you're like me, it's hard to pay a lot for a bag that you may only carry sometimes. Personally, I love wicker/straw bags no matter the season, but I know they can be expensive!

Here are some affordable places & picture-ready dupes to get your own #summerbag for the sunny days ahead.

Amazon:  The first place I go to check out anything trendy is Amazon & they have a nice selection of bamboo bags that range in price but seem to average around $35-60. Mind you, other bags like this are around $200. I search 'straw bags for summer'.

Target: Target's A New Day collection & Universal Threads apparel line has really jumped on the trend wagon--they have a selection of straw/wicker bags for summer! For my birthday I got the Straw Circle Bag & the Straw Shopper Bag/crossbody each bag was under $30, but they often run 20% off sales too.

Dillards: Believe it or not, Dillards has a selection of fun straw bags too. The price point is a little higher than the two above {each of my picks are under $100.00}, but nothing that's priced too extreme. A favorite of mine is this Betsey Johnson straw ice cream bag--so cute! She even has her version of a wood clutch-& a pink version!

As for my Bali Bag, it was gifted from True Tropics, but it's very similar to this one found at Dillard's.  While it's a canteen/circle bag, it's pretty roomy inside & mine is lined on the inside too.

Now, I hope you're ready to step out carrying your dream summer bag! 💕
