Trend-Spotting: 16 Basket Bags for Every Budget You Should Buy Now

The sun is out and vacation mode is in. So it’s really no surprise that basket bags are all the rage this Spring (and every Spring and Summer for that matter.) But this season, the basket bag trend seems to be bigger than ever. Everywhere you look, celebrities and trendsetters are donning adorable straw and basket bags and totes with refreshing warm weather looks. The adorable ONE by Cult Gaia Gaia’s Ark Bag is so SO popular, stores can’t keep it in stock.

And why wouldn’t these sweet little basket bags be all the rage? The rattan and basket bags, especially the vintage-inspired round versions, have a decidedly French vibe. Très chic.

So without further ado, I’m rounding up 16 basket bags for every budget, so you can score yourself an adorable new bag for Spring.

The 10 Prettiest Spring Shoes at J.Crew Right Now

Though I’ll forever love boots, Spring shoes have always been on my radar. I’m a shoe lover through and through, which means I am ALL for experimenting with funkier shoes. I’m known to wear an all-black outfit (basically all day, every day) along with a wild pair of shoes. Patterns, color, prints, pom-poms, tassels, studs, even glitter, I am a funky shoe loving fiend. And Spring shoes fit the bill. Every season, I swoon over all of the fresh Spring takes. I think it’s that Spring straddles the line with weather – somedays are still cool, and some start to warm up – so heels, flats, booties and sandals are all game. And color and pattern is the name of the game, because, well, SPRING!

I’ve rounded up the 10 prettiest Spring shoes at J.Crew right now, and ALL of them are on my wish list. Any favorites?

Gingham ankle-wrap flats: The lace-up wraps on this flats turns a sweet Spring gingham flat into a dainty ballerina version that I can’t stop staring at. (There’s also a denim version!)

Knotted high-heel sandals: Not only are these heels the perfect height (a.k.a., you can actually walk in them), but they’re also finished in the cutest eye-catching geometric print that adds the perfect element of interest. Oh, and they have a bow on top. Be still, my girly heart.

New In For Spring: Madewell

One of the nice things about vacation is that you can focus on a few mindless tasks; a.k.a., the things you don’t normally have to do (i.e., checking e-mails, making phone calls, the list goes on and on.) On vacation, I try to read books, take in the sunshine, and when we’re huddled up in our hotel room at the end of vacation days, I scour my favorite websites.

Madewell Denim - New In For Spring

Madewell caught my eye immediately. I’m a big fan of their denim and their new in items for Spring are gorgeous and laid-back and have the prettiest subtle vacation vibes. (This sweet little lace-up dress has my name written all over it and how cute is the embroidered heart detail on their high-rise jean shorts?)

These are a few of my favorite things …

All you have to do is enter the promo code GOBIG17 during checkout and BINGO: huge savings.

Just before the start of Spring, during Shopbop‘s huge Buy More, Save More Sale, I like to add to a few new favorite seasonal pieces to my wardrobe. My advice: stock up on Spring and Summer fashion essentials – a new brand favorite pair of jeans for Spring (this Citizens of Humanity pair – my all-time fave denim brand – is also going in my cart for sure!), a super flattering basic bikini, the perfect getaway dress, the most flattering oversized sunglasses I own, my favorite bralette, the kind of necklace you’ll wear everywhere, and of course, a sleek new bag for Spring – and save really big; as in, up to 25% off everything big.
