My favourite Summer bags

My Pic of Summer bags

I love Summer bags, I find in Winter I am pretty boring with my bags and I use bags that are darker in colour and pretty plain. Summer means I can get fun with my bags and I have a soft spot for straw and wicker style bags. I also adore a large shopper too for days out any on my summer holidays. The bigger the better for my Summer bags. I love how you can be more fun with your style this time of year, Whether it is a bold print, bright colour and a bit of embellishment.

Have you seen the straw hats everywhere with the sequin writing on them? I love these and I found a few straw bags that are similar style with the sequin writing on them. I have them further down in the post. 

The backpack 

Over the past few months, I am getting a little collection of backpacks. It started last year when I got a backpack to go to London and I thought it would be so handy for my camera and laptop on the aeroplane and when running around London. Up until recently I only used cute backpacks for travelling but since I have started walking to work a few days a week my backpack is now my everyday bag. I was using this little grey one the past few weeks but wanted to get something more pretty for Summer and when I saw this Asos one below I nearly died with the cuteness! This will be perfect for my walks to work and for travelling too. It was also only £32 which I think is good value for a bag. The straps are adjustable and thick too.

The large Tote bag

I love larger style tote bags for Summer. I find in Summer my bags gets bigger because of all the stuff I stash in it. I like to keep an umbrella because let’s face it the Irish weather we need one. I also like a bag to be big enough to pop my jacket in also. Those Summer evenings are chilly so if you’re out all day you need something that can pop a light jacket in. I also love these style bags for holidays, you can pop all your suncream, flip flops and sunglasses in and they are perfect for the beach.

    The buyers can of course interact with the sellers in much more detail and find out about the condition of the bag before they actually make the decision of purchasing it.
