[unpaid/affiliate/ad] We are – at last – scheduled some sunshine! I really haven’t done much summer wardrobe buying this year mainly because my WFH status doesn’t require anything fancy. My favourite outfit has been jeans and a white or pink linen top (both from H&M and I dyed the pink one myself) that I’ve just jazzed up with a less boring bag or two. I’ve got a couple of yellow bags and a neon pink one and they’ve been my go-to options. It’s such a good way to brighten up anything you’re wearing especially if you’ve been sticking to basics like me. So, based on the basics, I’ve done a quick round up of bags to elevate and summer-ize the go-anywhere linen tops and jeans combo.

H&M Summer Bag

H&M have great cheap and cheerful summer bag options – this is in the sale for £10 HERE. If you do end up at the beach, so much the better! It’s reduced from £22 and I have no idea why!

Boden Summer Bag

Boden is always an easy win for the bright and cheery – pineapples ahoy. This canvas tote is £36 reduced from £60 HERE and it’s my top buy for doubling as a shopper, a beach bag and a general cheerer-upper.

Summer Bag Ted Baker

This is PVC (or similar – Ted Baker call it rather coyly a ‘wipe down’) and full of the joys. It’s £17 HERE reduced from £32 which I feel is a bit of snip for something that will withstand the rain, water bottle spills and leaky sanitizer.

Kate Spade Summer Bag

If you want something a bit more lasting, Kate Spade has some great offers. This is the Loop Large shoulder bag reduced from £350 to £209 HERE. Other bright shades are red and pink with some neutrals as well. In fact, I could have done all of this post about KS bags because there are so many lovely ones but they’re more pricy than the others.

HUSH Summer Bag

I’m suddenly rather wishing I had this neutral number myself – it’s all sold out at HUSH but John Lewis has it HERE for £40 reduced from £65.

If you don’t want to wait another moment, this is well priced at £19.99 on Amazon HERE and if you have prime you can have within 24 hours.

The main image picture is brand new in at Monsoon in a kind of reverse animal print – it’s from the Sew Sustainable range for £40 HERE.
