The Best Basket Bags


I don't know why I'm suddenly all about the basket bags (or wicker/jute/straw, whatever you want to call them), especially given they've been around since what feels like the beginning of time, but it finally happened and I'm totally embracing it. It all started with a small addition from Zara, but since then I've build quite the collection, with my favourites being a little harder to find. The above circular bag is from a little store on tidy street in Brighton (though there are similar but pricier one's here and WAY pricier one's here) for a whole £25 - so much cheaper than most I've seen! I would say this one is my favourite by far, but I recently purchased a new addition... My little round bag from Etsy, another round bag, but with a darker tone and not quite as spacious. It looks super cute with all my summer dresses and is great for a more casual occasion where my bright orange mini Mulberry doesn't feel as appropriate.

Then there's the "everything and the kitchen sink option, this one was a gift so I'm not entirely sure where my exact one is from, but there are similar items in the shop section below! This one is my favourite for days out and picnics where I need to carry a lot of stuff. I mean let's face it I mostly fill it with food... But they also make great accessories for your home when not in use - sometimes mine houses cushions or blankets, and sometimes my floordrobe migrates in to it and looks like a cute mess in the corner instead of on the floor. Totally timeless and multi-purpose!

  11. I love basket bags - I picked up my first one from Zara a couple of weeks ago and since then I've been quite obsessed! Really would like one of the bigger ones soon, in particular the large circular one at the top of this post...but you're right, all the ones I've seen have been pretty expensive. Maybe on payday!
