Dreaming of the Beach...

We're winding down a nice week spent on the East Coast, but I have to be honest... all I can think about is how cold and rainy it has been here most of the week, which leaves me longing for a warm weather vacation and, perhaps, a cute straw or wicker tote!  Some of these are more practical for trips to the beach and others would work well at a summer wedding.  Either way, nothing says summer like a wicker tote/basket or straw bag.  Clearly I have bags on the brain lately... maybe it is because we have been moving around so much this week with lots of luggage?

Finally, an amazing rattan bag from Hermes. A girl can dream!
