Summer Staple: The Basket Clutch


Carrying the J.Crew Havana Clutch is a bit like toting a puppy about - it's so cute, everyone wants to see it. Last Saturday night at dinner, our table was visited by every single hostess and waitress in the restaurant, as the word got around that they had to check out my bag. I was happy to be able to tell them that even though I picked it up last year, it's back again this season.


Light, easy to carry, fits a lipstick and your cellphone, works perfectly with just about every sundress and pair of white jeans in your closet... But the best part is that it's like carrying summer: riding to the beach on a bike with a woven basket and opening a picnic hamper packed with lobster rolls.


No sand required.

What's your favorite summer staple?

    1. Pam, how fun that we share a love of Paris, New England and summer accessories! The white linen blazer and Provence market espadrilles sound like the perfect match! XO

  2. My Summer staple are loose tunic tops. There is a small shop that has so many pretty prints and playful prints. I think they look great as cover ups and then in with white jeans or shorts and sandals.
    Love your bag, like you said, it totally says "Summer!"

    1. Thanks, Sandy! I think you should grab one! I bought it last year to have something to take on a trip to Mexico, not thinking it would become a summer go-to, but find myself grabbing it time after time. XOXO

  5. One of my French Basketeer totes with leather handles is so perfect for the pool to carry just everything needed! Adore your clutch though!
