What does a tomboy do once spring hits? The type who clings to Dickies and Dr. Martens when everyone else is fiending for floral dresses. The truth is that even the most delicate many-petaled motifs can be made to fit a cooler urban wardrobe. For starters, you can swap out those pastel mules and toughen up your pretty frock with a heavy-soled military boot. A patchwork floral-print skirt is a surprisingly good match for some classic-rock merch—we’re thinking a Slayer tee would fit the bill here—especially when there are rose-dotted workman boots thrown into the mix. And adding a corset to a ’70s-inspired micro-print dress, or a neon green bag to a soft pink Victorian-style top, is a styling trick...

Vintage Souvenir Straw Bags

straw1

There’s no doubt that at some point during my childhood, I convinced my parents to buy me a straw tote while on vacation, emblazoned with the word “Mexico” across it. Or maybe it was the “Bahamas” – I can’t remember. And I can only assume that it was during my college years that I found it tacky enough to purge. Sad. With spring on the horizon, I’m newly obsessed with vintage souvenir straw bags. They’re the perfect, most whimsical item to carry into summer, wouldn’t you agree? Check out some of my favorite finds after the jump!
