“Summer time, and the living is easy…”. Well, with kids in tow, living may not be quite so easy but you can feel a bit carefree with the sun out and a basket packed and ready to enjoy and Summer’s day outing. A straw tote basket comes out of storage as soon as the sunny days start. They hold ALOT, look fabulous and make you appear effortlessly ready for Summer. Here are my picks of some of the straw tote baskets out there at the moment.
Tote basket with striped handles by Zara – the fabric handles make this a chic option which is comfortable to carry.
Striped Straw shopper by Marks & Spencer – understated and with a nautical twist.
Pom Pom beach basket by Boden – I love the combination of pink and orange and the bright lining makes this a brilliant buy.
Straw pom pom basket by John Lewis – the long handles make it easy to carry about as it is usually Mum who ends up carrying everything on a day out.
Straw bee raffia tote by Kate Spade – Kate Spade has always made fashion fun and this tote is no exception.
Fringed straw tote by Kayu at The Outnet – most people love a star detail and this cute tote delivers!
Monogrammed tassel basket by Rae Feather – the go-to label for straw and raffia bags, this option has fun over-sized tassels and the option to personalise.
