How To Style Summer’s Trendy Bamboo Handbag

How to Style Summer's Trendy Bamboo Handbag

If you’ve spent any time on Pinterest in the last month or so, you know that these bamboo handbags have taken the fashion world by storm. I always strive to incorporate unique, textured statement pieces (I seriously talk about texture way too much) into my outfits, so I was instantly intrigued by these wooden clutches the second I saw them. After swiping this bag up for only $34.99 this weekend, I’m sharing how I style it for summer in this post!

Did any of you think this bag was as impractical as I did when you saw it? The concept of having a vented, see-through bag without straps of any kind seems a bit unrealistic for daily use, but I actually didn’t mind carrying it around at all when out shopping this weekend! It added so much to my look and I loved the feeling of it. I’m considering doing a DIY on how to add straps to it if I’m successful at it, so let me know if that’s something you’d like to see.

I desperately tried to find the link to this bag at the low price I purchased it at from T.J. MAXX this weekend, but I can’t find it anywhere! If you’d like to try to search for it, the brand is Prezzo and the quality is amazing. I styled it with distressed high-waisted boyfriend jeans (Pacsun), a black belt (Urban Outfitters), pink off-the-shoulder crop top (Carrie Elise & Kho — my friend’s online store that just opened last week, go check it out!), blush leather slides (Franco Sarto — purchased from TJ MAXX for only $34.99), layered gold necklaces (Midori Linea — use my code “ABBYSAYLOR” for 20% off!) and sunglasses (Steve Madden). This outfit was super comfy and perfect for a summer day spent outdoors. Shop the look below.

I hope you all had a great weekend! Justin and I spent ours at my parents’ house celebrating my mom’s birthday — that’s where these pretty outdoor photos were taken! I also purchased my outfit for the Fourth of July, along with a few other fashion items that I’ll be sharing on the blog soon. I’ve been posting more on my Instagram story lately + doing live hauls as I purchase things, so be sure you’re following me if you’d like to keep up.

Thanks for reading and have a great Monday, everyone — do something that makes it fun! 🙂

    very girl next door and looking very on trend at the mo! The bamboo bag is very cute! Kind of impractical but good for just a few items. I’ve been seeing this kind of bag on Instagram nonstop! Thanks for the share 🙂

      Thank you! 🙂 I agree on the impractical thing, although it wasn’t nearly as odd to carry around with me while out and about this weekend as I thought it would be. It holds the things I need, although it only allows for one free hand… haha. Thank you so much for reading and commenting!

      Thank you so much Chloe! This pink top is my new fave because it fits so comfortably, so you’ll definitely have to check out Carrie Elise & Kho is you’re interested. I’m happy to hear you’re so inspired! Thank you for commenting 🙂
