Seasonally Appropriate Handbags

Cast aside the your black handbags for a few months.  The gray ones as well.  Leather and suede should be shelved. For a few months, your ONLY arm candy should be easy, breezy, and casual.

Of course, nothing says “summer” as loudly as the preppy vibe that is Vineyard Vines.  This Neon Dipped Straw Tote is on trend with the pom-poms and the colorblocked splash of color.
