Beach Bag Trends for Summer 2018

While we were in New Orleans a few weeks ago I came across a cute boutique on Magazine Street called Armoire. This round, straw bag (pictured above) immediately caught my eye! The shape is so fun, plus it looks like the more expensive bags I’ve been eyeing but for only $50. It will be perfect for the beach, happy hour, traveling and pretty much every summer occasion. Circle bags are a major trend this season, especially those made out of straw and bamboo. Since I love this one so much I also ordered this smaller crossbody bag from Etsy. It should arrive at the end of March (it’s been selling out like crazy!) so I’ll let you know how I like it. If you want to splurge this Clare V. bag has been a blogger favorite on Instagram this spring. It looks super cute with a silk scarf tied to the handle for a pop of color. Another “It” bag is this Cult Gaia bamboo purse with wooden beads. It’s definitely a statement piece and out of my price range, but I’ll be on the lookout for a knockoff version for you guys (c’mon, Target!). Pom poms, fringe and tassels are also trendy details you’ll be seeing on purses and beach bags this summer. This straw clutch is so fun and under $50. It would look great with white jeans, wedges and a flowy top. Below are some other beach bags I’m eyeing. Most of them are affordable (under $50), but a few are a bit of a splurge. They were just too cute not to share with you, though!
