Summer totes earn Diva's love and affection
Come summertime, I like to lighten things up. Literally.
That means wearing lots of airy dresses and strappy sandals. Cutting excess weight from my lion's mane. And, most importantly, ditching my leather (okay, pleather) workaday purses for totes made of cotton, canvas or straw.
I don't want lots of bulk weighing me down when the heavy air is already doing a superb job of that. Besides giving my shoulders a break, cloth bags are often washable, so no worries if they get a little sandy at the beach or a bit sticky from sunscreen. Throw it in the wash, and the purse looks as good as new.
The best part? With a fabric tote, you don't have to spend oodles to bring a pop of color or pattern to your summer look. For proof, see Exhibits A, B, C and D.
