Hey Sugar Bee Readers! I’m Kilee from ONE little MOMMA– Mandy’s fashion contributor. This month we are talking summer style. Am I the only one who thinks it is hard to feel stylish when you are sweating???
In the summer it gets a lot harder to be creative with what you are wearing. It is hot and layers just aren’t going to happen. You typically have to go back to the basics with just a tee and some type of pants/shorts/capris. No more layering (at least here in Missouri!). The best way to change up your look or add some personality to it is to change your bag and your shoes. I have shared my picks for fun Spring/Summer shoes and so now I’ll share a few fun bag ideas!
I love to shop at garage sales and thrift stores for my purses. I can find unique bags for such low prices! I bought the above clutch at a garage sale for maybe .50. It had a long handle which I cut off. I love the bright teal color for summer.
This red bag I also bought for .50 at a garage sale. It is actually a vintage carry-on luggage piece, but works great as a purse. I don’t mind the size of it (usually), but I really LOVE the color.
Yep, this messenger bag is from a garage sale too. It is also vintage luggage. The army green canvas and the faux leather detailing on this messenger bag definitely says summer to me.
If you aren’t so lucky at garage sales or thrift stores, I put together a bunch more fun summer bag ideas for you. I love canvas, straw, bright colors, and fun prints for summer. If your bag is interesting, then it will spice up your basic solid tee and denim shorts.
