Hey y'all!

For today's post, I wanted to post another installment of my #FashionTips series where I take a piece or a trend and break it down for y'all, and then explain how I would style it! One huge trend that I have seen lately is straw/woven bags. I feel like this trend is something that is often big in the summertime, but I think its bigger than ever this season! I found a ton of affordable ones (as well as some dang cute splurge pieces if you are into that!) and I linked them in the widget below the photos.

I opted for the more woven look rather than the full on straw bag because I thought the one I picked out would be more practical for an everyday use, whereas the straw bag might look silly if I showed up to the coporate office of my internship with (not that I wouldn't want to...I'm just trying to think practically!) But I think if I wore this bag with a white wrap dress and wedges, no one would think twice! So this bag is perfect for the beach/pool, but I think you can easily make it appropriate for your everyday wardrobe. I also love the raffia pom poms which add an extra summery vibe!

As for the outfit, I wanted to incorporate a fun and summery look to compliment the straw bag! I paired this tropical tank with some classic cutoff shorts. I love this printed tank -- its swingy, light, and the print is so fun and unique with birds and flowers all over! I love how easy it is to pair with different bright jewelry for a different look each time. Plus, the top is under $26! These shorts are a go-to of mine as well and are under $46. Lastly, I wore some espadrille flatform sandals to complete the beachy, summer look!

What do y'all think of this trend? Leave a comment down below!
