I have been fielding a lot of questions about cute straw bags for summer, and I nearly always respond with the same thing: get thee to Pam Munson, queen of the woven tote. Pam was one of my earliest women of substance and is a true gem — beautiful inside and out, elegant, and highly talented. I’m a huge admirer. If you are a mom or tend to tote a lot with you, I would highly recommend investing in one of her large-sized Isla Bahia totes. I carry it nearly every day of the summer. It goes with everything and holds a lot, but she does have a smaller size, too. I have a few of her bags and this one is my favorite because it has shoulder straps!
