The straw basket trend is one I adore. I love to wear anything that’s easy and casual. This trend actually started with Jane Birkin in the 70s who wore a basket as a purse around Paris – like an actual basket. As an influencer, Birkin made the basket a fashionable accessory and a classic summer staple. Today you can find the Birkin basket for around $100 and many pretty straw totes in stores but I have found so many gorgeous options second hand that I just have to argue for shopping vintage for this trend.

I found this bag at a local antique market which I vlogged about here. The bigger basket bag I found at value village and I can’t wait to use it as a beach tote to carry all my family’s sandy essentials.

If you’re in love with the idea of a vintage straw tote bag shop my picks at the bottom of this post!
