I recently found a straw market bag at a thrift store for $4. I have several market totes, beach bags, and various other woven purses in my collection, but this one was so big and such a great price I had to take it home! Plus it was the perfect thing to carry all my finds in while I shopped.
Take a look at the latest addition to my spring/summer wardrobe, get ideas for how to style this kind of bag, and find similar totes to add to your own closet below!
One thing I really like about this bag is the extra long handles that wrap around the bottom of the bag for support. I worry about the handles on a few of my other woven bags and I like that I won't have to worry about this one.
I for one love the returning trend of the oversized bag and market bags are the perfect way to incorporate this casual style for spring and summer.
They're great for heading to the pool or beach or an actual market, but there are lots of ways to style them for everyday wear too.
Pair your market tote with a casual pair of jeans and a classic button down or nice t-shirt for an effortlessly chic look. Or go for a more carefree, bohemian style with a cute sundress and sandals.
I definitely recommend keeping an eye on the purse section at your thrift shop for oversized totes, but if you don't want to wait, here are a few bags that will instantly give you the same look.
