Style Sunday: Straw Tote for Summer

About a week ago, I picked up a couple of books that I placed a hold on at my local library and was surprised to see that they had the same image on the cover.

I enjoyed this! The French people she meets are crazy, ...entertaining though...

by Melissa Tosetti and Kevin Gibbons
I thought this was helpful. Its philosophy is to "save money on the things that aren't as important to you so you can afford to spend money on the things that are important to you" (10).
It reminded me of the book French Women Don't Get Fat. Do/ eat the things that truly give you pleasure and save on/ skip the things that do not. Both are all about being conscious instead of simply going through the motions in life.

Anyway, on to the subject of style...

Maybe the universe is telling me that I need this bag! I am surprised that I like the straw bag this woman carries as it's kind of rustic. I usually carry a more sophisticated leather handbag, or at least a large canvas tote with a graphic print. 

I could go with this dressed up one with sequins:

I found this one by browsing 
but did see it on a swimsuit segment on The Today Show yesterday.
It has earned a spot on my wishlist.

Isn't it perfect for summer?
