Life’s always a picnic: Basket bag roundup

Life’s always a picnic: Basket bag roundup

Just breezing through to talk about the resurgence of my woven basket obsession (I just can’t stop, I adore them all!). I have to thank a roundup on Who What Wear, when I spotted the metal basket from Zara, tried to stay away, and then two weeks lately giddily purchased. The whole aesthetic just jives with mine, I can’t really fight it–the selection above hit such whimsical, casual, and slightly romantic notes that I just want to keep singing and singing. Plus, texture in an garment or accessory always always (always!) adds more appeal to your outfit, and bonus, makes things look more expensive.

The whole woven Belly Bag phenom was real in Summer 2017 (See here that the Doen $28 dollar version is still sold out) … it was like downtown Manhattan was an homage to the French countryside or something. Now as we’re starting to think of our Spring/Summer wardrobes, there are even more options, from fast-fashion outlets, to smaller boutiques on Etsy.

Personally, I’m very intrigued by the plastic options from the British company Sun Jellies — so fresh and unfussy–perfect for a beach/park/wherever a long Sunday afternoon takes you. You can purchase directly from their site, or from UO or Free People.

These two cuties below are from Zara here and here.

Tell me I’m not alone in my obsession … or if so, there’s more for me.  As always let me know what you’re shopping for this season. Thanks for following and if you’re new lets be friends on Instagram too. You can find me at @Steepedinstyle.
