Styling Straw Bags with Ageless Style

It's the third Thursday of the month and time for another ageless style challenge.  This month Jodie picked straw bags.  I didn't have a straw bag but one look on Amazon and I had the hardest time picking one! I wanted so many of them but finally settled on this plain tan one-- I wanted something neutral enough to go with anything but it had to have a zipper on it. 

I took my mom out earlier this month for an early Mother's Day lunch and decided that since we finally had a warm sunny day to go all out with skirt and shirt and sandals with my new straw bag. 

Sorry the photos aren't the greatest; between the wind and lighting we really struggled to get some good ones!


I originally had a different top picked out but switched it to this bright pink one; it just screams sunny weather to me. 



My new skirt is from Amazon (here)

So is my new purse (the sandals are quite old though I can't remember where I got them).

  21. That's a great straw bag and I love your skirt! Some of the reviews said some patterns were see through or needed a slip. Did you find that with that color skirt? It's so fun!

    1. Thank you so much; this skirt does not need a slip at all. I loved the material and thought it was plenty thick enough as is.

  22. How nice that you enjoyed an early Mother's Day lunch with your mom. I bet she loved seeing her 'baby girl' all dressed up and looking so pretty for spring. Love those colors on you. And you look very youthful with your hair longer. Your bag was the perfect accessory to top off this look. Hope your fellas treated you like a queen on Mother's Day.
