What to Carry this Summer

What to Carry this Summer

by Susan Neuhalfen

According to our friends at Brightside Boutique in Highland Village, this summer’s handbags are both beautiful and practical. Everything from straw bags to travel bags are available to beautifully accessorize any summer outfit from a trip the beach to a summer wedding and durable so that they will last for summers to come.

Straw Handbags
Straw (or Raffia) is in this summer and we don’t mean the knockoffs that stick you when they start to unravel. Brighton makes several beautiful handcrafted purses that will work for every occasion. Artisans from Madagascar crochet and embroider these purses that are beautifully woven from clutch purses to large totes. They are works of art.

Quilted Bags
If you’re looking for something a little more durable, Brighton also makes a quilted bag. These bags are lightweight, strong and water repellent for those Texas (or wherever you’re traveling) rainstorms. They are collapsible and perfect for travel and come in cross body satchels, backpacks and totes. They are soft and comfortable, too.

Walk-It Totes
These Walk-It totes are eye-catching with their bright, colorful designs. The outside is a water repellent material but unlike many bags, they very durable for beach trips or travel. They also collapse into themselves for an extra bag or to make travel much easier.

“These are high quality purses that perfectly highlight summer wear,” said Ann Wolf, owner of Brightside Boutique. “We even have accessories designed by these same artists that match the purse.”
