40. Straw strolls


They were everywhere this summer.. and unless you have been living under a rock there’s no excuse why you didn’t spot them. Yes, you know it.. I’m talking about straw bags!

This item is going through a real revival after it was picked up by various people and brands again. And I must say.. It does add some small town charm to just about every outfit. Because whenever I see one of the straw bags or baskets, I can already imagine a bouquet of flowers, bottle of wine and a French bread being in there somewhere. So, as far as I’m concerned, it was the perfect summer item. And yes, it will still be wearable in fall as well.


I must be honest.. I didn’t buy one myself.  For this outfit I borrowed Eline’s bag – again. #sorrynotsorry.

Even though I love the bags, I didn’t really find myself a wow-item. And that’s what I’m looking for in the things I buy. The warm and fuzzy feeling of knowing it’s exactly what you were looking for.

I must say I came pretty close to finding one in Barcelona, in a small shop that specializes in straw baskets and bags. Something there did catch my eye so I might be a bit bummed I returned home without it.

I held of on the purchase, but in the meantime I did want to use it in one of the outfit shoots. Thank you Eline!


When looking at these photos again, I do get an instant vacation feeling. Even if there is no beach to be found, the top, skirt and backless loafers instantly transport my mind to the Côte d’Azur.


I can already see myself strolling around there, visiting vintage markets in search of long forgotten treasures. Later that day you can find me sipping a glass of rose wine on a sunny terrace, overlooking the sea while I enjoy a salade niçoise..

Oh shoot, I’m daydreaming again.
Anyway, back to reality and Monday mornings!

Perhaps I should already start planning my next vacation. You know, just to have something to look forward to ;-).

Top – Vero Moda
Skirt – Bel n Bo
Shoes – Zara
Bag – Dille & Kamille
