Now that I'm back in my hometown, I'm trying to make it a point to explore and shoot outfit photos at various places around town. It's fun to play tourist, especially since I still kind of feel like a tourist right now. ;) I love this area of downtown; most of the buildings are original and so charming! While we were shooting, the bike bar rode by. That seems like fun if you don't have to do too much of the work, haha!
I purchased this woven straw bag in the recent Shopbop sale for an upcoming trip to Florida. I didn't expect to love it as much as I do! The only thing I didn't love as much was the length of the strap; it was a little bit longer than I would have preferred, so I tied a knot in the middle to shorten it a bit. I wanted to take it out for a spin prior to the trip and decided to play off the blue tassels (love the different colors) and wear my sleeveless chambray shirt, white denim shorts, and navy sandals. I was worried that it would look/feel weird to carry a straw bag in a place other than near the ocean, but I didn't feel out of place at all! Whoop!
