5 Essential Summer Bags


Who doesn't love summer, right? Summer time is that time of the season wherein you can go to the beach, go on vacation with your family and friends, go on a road trip, explore new places, and even have some "me time" at home or at the park and drink cool refreshments.

Of course this is also the time to dress comfortably. Most of the time, this season is where our laces and printed clothing mostly gets worn. And the right bag will complete your summer outfit. Aside from making sure that your bag needs to be functional enough, we also consider the style of the bags we wear. Whether it matches the color of your outfit or whether it compliments your shoes, a bag is always important for ladies like us as we carry all our essentials.

In this post, I have put together a list of essential summer bags, majority of which are from the brand romytisa

1. Braided Bag

The number 1 essential summer bag is of course, a braided bag. Most likely, this type of bag is handmade and that's what makes it extra beautiful. This style of bag is perfect from going to the beach to doing your groceries. It's that versatile. It goes so well also with any summer outfit.

Here's a braided bag I liked from the aforementioned brand:

Available in 4 colors, this bag has careful lining & stitching. It has an interior pouch so you don't expose your stuff and none of them will fall off while you're carrying this bag with you.

2. The Banig (woven / mat) Bag

The banig is a mat made of dried leaves and used primarily for sleeping and sitting in the Philippines. Widely practiced in the country, banig weaving is considered a genuine treasure handed down from generation to generation as a tradition or a trade. 

Now-a-days, banig weaving can be seen in the form of a bag, a pouf, a rug, etc.
