{fashion inspiration: basket handbags}

. . . now that it is nearly summer, have become quite enamoured with the thought of carrying a vintage basket handbag around town, in the style of jane birken -- and much like this one, found in a tiny shop in saint-tropez -- would imagine it would make every day feel like a picnic, or a trip to the markets . . .

I love this. I use to have one similar when I was in high school. It was a gift from my Grandmother, but I didn't know anything back then.

Cute - I think I had a smaller version of the basket at one time. Summer is such a fun season for purses.
