Must Have bags of Summer 2017

Erica Valentin - Atlanta Style Blogger
Ya’ll it’s Saturday! This was a longgggggggg week and I’m so glad it’s over and tomorrow is Mother’s Day so I’m spending the whole day with my littles! In the meantime I thought I would share with you my favorite bags for summer 2017!
I must also confess I purchased all 4 of these and love every one of them! All of these work for spring too and I promise you will love any of these bags! Make sure you also stay tuned because I plan on featuring each on of these bags in a full outfit post for each one separately so you can see just how I styled each one!
Mar Y Sol Straw Tote
1. Mar Y Sol Ibiza – This bag is my absolute favorite bag! It’s huge inside and works for a day at the beach, shopping or even a night out in the summer!  The straw is very sturdy and amazing quality and the colors are gorgeous.  I got this bag via the LUVIT app and the cool thing about the app is that you get cash back on each purchase! You can also get it at Nordstrom too!  It comes in Natural, Navy (shown above), Pink, and Aqua but if you check out the LUVIT app they also offer it in a gorgeous yellow! 
Mar Y Sol Straw Clutch
2.  Mar Y Sol Mia Raffia Clutch – This is another adorable bag from Mar Y sol and you can also get this via LUVIT or Nordstrom.  Its the perfect clutch to transition from a day to night look! I can’t wait to use this for a date night with the hubby! The best part is it comes in 4 colors and is under $50!!!!
Steve Madden Jyme Pom Pom Clutch
3. Steve by Steve Madden Jyme Clutch – This clutch is seriously perfection! The poms and the embroidery make it the perfect statement piece for spring and summer and this clutch also works for day or night.  I like that it’s a bit larger for a clutch so I can fit more inside too!  I must inform you though.  This bag is sold out everywhere! I wanted (and still do) the Natural color….but like anything…if you wait too you may lose out!  I was lucky enough to find the denim one on HSN HERE though! Hopefully Nordstrom will restock this and if any of you find the natural color one somewhere please let me know!
Sam Edelman Straw Clutch
4. Sam Edelman Milly Straw Minaudière – I just got this gorgeous Sam Edelman bag in the mail this week and it’s fantastic.  It comes in 2 colors that are both perfect for summer but I got the red/pink one because I think it will work well into fall as well! This one is definitely more of an evening style bag but you could rock it during the day too maybe to a mid-morning brunch!
Hope you enjoyed my top picks and if you would like to shop any of them you can check out the links below or for the Mar Y Sol ones you can also check out the app for cash back!

Festival Style from South Moon Under by Erica Valentin
I seriously love when new shops and boutiques open in my area!  South Moon Under is one of those shops!  South Moon Under has been around for years but I had never even heard of them until recently. I decided to check out the online shop and I am obsessed already! What’s even better isjust opened 2 new location Atlanta and I could not be more excited, mainly because while I love online shopping…..I definitely prefer shopping an actual store location! 
Both stores are in locations I already shop at…Ponce City Market and The Avalon in Alpharetta so if you are in the Atlanta area you def need to check them out and trust me you will not be disappointed!

One of the things I love about South Moon Under is that they carry trusted brands that I know and love like Steve Madden, ASTR, Tularosa, Hudson & J Brand Jeans just to name a few……and with summer on the way they carry all your favorite swimwear brands like Trina Turk, Maaji, Isabella Rose, Nanette Lepore & Becca…just to name a few!

Right now being festival season they are literally a one stop shop for all your boho style needs! Think cutoffs & flowy blouses galore!  This is my absolute favorite piece from South Moon Under and as soon as I saw it I knew I just had to have it…..
