it’s okay to be a basket case.

i’ll admit it — i’m a total basket case. i love tote baskets of all shapes and sizes and have a collection of them already, but i’m always finding room for just one more. i use them for the farmer’s market and the flea, grocery shopping and for sure poolside and a day at the beach. not only do they have a kind of cool european, vintage vibe while you’re carrying them, they look pretty hanging out in plain site, too. i have a couple of french market totes hanging in my kitchen at the ready for my next shopping excursion. i went on the hunt for some nouveau tote bags and found quite a few favorites as well as some inspiration for toting one along — the perfect summer accessory, but oh-so practical, too.

  1. I love these types of bags for summer outings. Any other time just doesn’t seem appropriate for me, that and I carry everything in my bag making it susceptible to breaking and falling apart.

  2. Agreed, x 100. I am going to dig mine out today. Left to my own devices I would buy a new one each year just for the fun of it.

  3. Absolutely love the black pom basket bag and the pink tote from Anthro! As a gift basket designer, I try to incorporate a variety of fashion basket totes into my gift collection. Thanks for sharing so many awesome styles!
