I’ve got a summer appropriate post for you today that is a bit out of my wheelhouse, but fun nonetheless! Somehow I let a year slip by before sharing another curated Etsy roundup. I used to really enjoy the Best of Etsy series, so I’m thinking I should bring those back. What do you think? No time like the present, I suppose! I’ve been recently infatuated with woven bags and updating my summer wardrobe. Since my new meds and health plan have been making me feel unlike myself lately, I thought adding a few new things to my closet that better fit would boost my confidence and bring a little sunshine to my summer look. I went down the rabbit hole of designer handbags & totes, then decided not to splurge when there were so many similar handmade options on Etsy. I saved SO many good ones, I thought they were worth sharing with you. Click through for a curated collection of my favorite woven bags for summer… they’re perfect for everyday use, the beach, toting to work, seasonal markets, and summer travel.
I was ready to drop some money on a classic woven designer bag I could keep for decades to come, but I after scouring Etsy- I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I found the quality and materials to be similar and the price speaks for itself… these handmade options are significantly less than the designer versions. We’re talking under $50 versus up to $1500. If you’re also looking for a great summer bag on a budget, check out my finds below. These are the ones I loved and saved.

This is the bag I ended up grabbing (pictured below). It is number #13 from the roundup. I wanted something that had that casual bucket shape, could hold all my junk, and I liked the color blocked look. It felt very designer looking to me! What do you think?
I hope you enjoyed this one! Even though it’s not exactly home related, I still think woven bags like this can be fun to style around the house. My everyday bag sits on an ottoman in my home office. I also enjoy a woven bag hanging from a pretty doorknob. I keep a tote in the guest room for friends & family to use when they are out and about while visiting. Anyway… just something fun that has been on my mind lately, so I wanted to share! I haven’t been feeling my best, so I tried to keep this one short. See you on Friday for a new Noteworthy post though- I’m looking forward to catching up! Hope you have a great day.
