Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome to today’s Weekly Obsession. Something that has been trending like crazy lately is straw bags. I have completely jumped on that bandwagon. I am so in love with them! If you have seen any, you’ll know that they can run a bit pricey. I found one at Target that was only $23!
My weekly obsession segment of my blog is where I share with you guys something I have been absolutely obsessing over lately.
Let me share with you just how difficult it was to get this bag. It had been sold out for over a month, so I was on the email list to be notified when it was back in stock. Every single time I got an email, it was sold out by the time I went to the website. When I finally got my hands on it and was able to purchase the bag, my order got cancelled because it was sold out again. So after about a month of waiting and checking Target’s website I finally got it! Let me tell you it was so worth the wait.
Also! It has been back in stock for a couple weeks now so you should have a much much easier time getting it than me!
How to Style: Straw Bags
Straw bags are so easy to style! This bag has a three pockets inside, one with a zipper. It has a clasp that keeps the bag shut. I love how the bag has two straps so you can wear it as a crossbody or with the top handle. This bag is perfect for any summer outfit. I’ve been wearing it both with dresses and more casual outfits as well. I’ve also been loving wearing it with hats too. I think it makes an outfit a little bit more girly.

Outfit One: Dressy
I love, love, love how this bag looks against a dress! The texture of the bag gives a relaxed look to any outfit. I have received so many compliments on the bag. I paired this bag with some yellow espadrilles (blog post ) to help tie in the “woven straw” vibe.
Outfit Two: Date Night
I’ll be wearing this hat and bag together for a long time! I love how the straw color matches and I think that it helps tie any outfit together. As you can see in this outfit and the previous one, I wore a lot of black even though the handles of the straw bag are cognac. I love how the colors go together without clashing.
Do you guys love straw bags as much as I do? Are you ready to jump on the bandwagon too? Let me know which outfit was your fav in the comments!
