It’s spring catalog season, the time of year when I am sent catalogs full of dresses and swimsuits in an effort to get me to buy things, which I often do. While most of these catalogs are apparel-based, many also carry accessories. So, I have decided that for each catalog I receive, I’ll do a post about the best purse or handbag they have to offer. First up: Athleta.
Athleta’s vibe is casual and sporty so the bags they carry tend that way as well. My current favorite is the Athleta Boho Beaded Bag. The outer layer is woven toyo straw with small wooden beads and it’s lined with a green striped cotton. Not something you’ d carry to formal occasions but it would go perfectly with jeans and flip flops or a flowy dress, which is pretty much my entire spring and summer wardrobe. You can get the Athleta Boho Beaded Bag from Athleta for $48.
