I still remember the basket my mother used to carry to do daily shopping. She wore clogs and white dresses, and now that I think about it, she was an epitome of boho chic. Later, we would only pull out baskets around Easter time (my Polish readers will know why :)). Baskets fell out of fashion for years. Now, they are back with vengeance.

You probably saw them all over Instagram. Small, round, shopper like- take your pick. Suddenly, a humble basket became the coolest accessory of the summer.

Straw hat

I approve.  A basket makes summer dressing look effortless and breezy.  It makes a black dress feel heat appropriate and goes like a dream with denim and white t-shrt.

I got mine from my sister, it’s Atmosphere (Primark) and it’s an old collection. I got so many complements about it- I suppose it does look quite chic with its simple brown strap.  From the new offerings, I like small, round baskets with lid and fan shaped, elegant wicker bags.

A basket and a straw hat- my perfect summer duo.
