I’m not one to jump on a seasonal trend and embrace it quickly. My style is very classic and feminine and I like to stick to timeless pieces. However the straw/basket bag trend is one that I am fully committed too and have totally embraced!! It all started with the Cult Gaia Natural Ark bag. I’ve been eyeing this bag for the longest time – there is constantly a wait list!! Randomly I was browsing the site and the bag was in stock in size small and I clicked add to cart and never looked bag.
I’ve styled the Cult Gaia natural ark bag several times on the blog. It is one of my most worn bags this season. Last seen (here, here, here, here, and here). The bag is surprisingly spacious and I’m able to fit many things in it. I even manage to get my polaroid camera into it with room for my wallet, keys, phone, lipstick, and sunglasses! I was on the fence between the small and large size, I ultimately went with the small because I though the large would be overwhelming for me since I’m petite. The price difference is only $10 therefore if size isn’t an issue I would get the large!
