Lighten up mama! Toss off your heavy leather bag and pick up a woven beach tote for all your gear this summer. These little gems don't have to be pricey (but yes, you can spend a bundle). Have fun with your summer accessories and give one of our suggestions a whirl. Let's start with this beauty from Ten Thousand Villages a site that provides vital, fair income to Third World people by marketing their handicrafts and telling their stories. Handcrafted in Vietnam, this straw tote ($38) has loads of style and a tiny price.
This one from Old Navy has heaps of color and costs the same a few trips to Starbucks ($19.50)
Nordstrom adds a touch of leather--this Straw Tote bag (sale $44.90) for an updated look.
We love the shape of this Kate Spade Tortola Kei Straw Tote and if feels modern thanks to the gold trim($329.99--we told you some would be pricey).
And we think this one from Tommy Bahama Kaala Bag ($148) is quite pretty. I'm picturing a southern belle toting this in Hilton Head!
