We’re not far from May now, which really marks the start of summer. If like me you’re already dreaming of warmer climes, crystal clear seas and white sands you’ve probably also been shopping for ‘holiday essentials’ at any spare opportunity.
Bikinis, sandals, beach cover-ups, they’ve all been available on the high street and online for some time now, so the next item to tick off your capsule holiday wardrobe is the beach bag.
When I buy something I like to get maximum usage out of an item, something that I can use at home and away, so the perfect beach bag purchase this summer is the straw or raffia bag. Now I know this is essentially not anything new, but with the likes of beautiful British brand, Rae Feather making straw beach baskets and even clutches the most desirable (not to mention instagrammed) bags on the summer scene, I can promise you will not be saving this bag purely for beach holiday purposes.
If you’ve not yet discovered Rae Feather you only need to look through your Instagram feed to see a whole host of fans. Rae Feather believe that with simplicity comes longevity – music to my ears! We all want those timeless pieces in our wardrobe that we look to use again and again, season after season. They also offer a fantastic monogram service so you can really make your bag your own, with initials and even choosing a colour way for the stripe details….Their monogram clutch is high on my birthday wish list.
Just take a look below to see how you can take this piece of arm candy from bustling city to beautiful beach life.

So if you’ve got some room left in that suitcase of yours now is the time to hit the high street and bag yourself a little straw number. It can also double as a great piece of hand luggage with plenty of room for storing your duty-free purchases…Happy Holidays.
