Chic Straw Purses Under $100

If you could ask french women what one accessory they would choose to use all summer long, it would be a straw purse.

It’s chic, lightweight, and can hold everything you may need for a stroll along the riverside.

Straw purses are simple but elegant. They have a timeless feel about them – almost as if you just stepped out of a black and white film. You spent your day exploring the french riviera with your gingham sundress, straw purse, and of course, floppy straw hat.

I want you to feel like that with a beautiful but inexpensive straw purse. So I rounded up my favorite straw purses under $100!

A few days ago I got the purse pictured above and I haven’t stopped carrying around since. It’s quickly replaced my straw purse from earlier this summer as the new favorite. It’s very roomy (although getting closed all the way is a wee bit tricky).

FRENCH SUMMER STYLE INSPIRATION

 

However, pairing it with a beautiful silky black dress makes it oh so feminine with a European flair!

Some of these are actually on sale too so now is the perfect time to purchase. Only 2 more months left for beautiful summer weather before September comes around! Check out the purses below.

This morning we celebrated by heading to our local farmers market. I hoped to get up early enough to make crepes but I am still exhausted from yesterday's #Nsale shenanigans ๐Ÿ˜†I spent all day editing, writing, and linking - don't think my crepes would have turned out very well. But I did get some cute striped tops, so all is well, right?

Do you have any favorite french recipes you've tried? Have you tried crepes with nutella yet? If not, there's a recipe for that on my post! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • C'est la vie! If you're a francophile or just love the little charms about Paris and France, my latest blog post is for you. I've gotten so many questions about living a french inspired lifestyle in the past year, so I decided to share some great resources for you. In todays post, I am sharing 12 of my favorite french-inspired living books that I have personally read and have on the shelf (or err..in my kindle!).
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
I spent a few summers in France and what really struck me back then was the pace of life - slow, relaxed, & cultured. I was amazed on how peaceful my mind was when I sat outdoors in the countryside, sparkling water in hand, cheese on the table, and the sound of birds chirping in the trees.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
My fondest memory was having a picnic on the grounds of Versailles and thinking "I could get use to this". Not owning a palace - I wish...but really slowing down my day and enjoying the beautiful little things around me. Thus, The Petite Bijou motto was born: enjoy the little jewels of life.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
So whether you're interested in just learning how to style yourself like a french woman or if you're interested in just spending time like the french do, this post is for you! Click the link in my bio to learn more.

Are you a francophile or obsessed with french lifestyle or fashion? I'd love to know if you are! Have you read any of the books on the list?

  • โ€œIn character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicityโ€
โ€”
Life is too complicated for me to have anything else but a simple and comfortable style. All my life I have had hardships that have shaped who I am today:
.
Today I prefer simplicity
Today I like speaking softly
Today I avoid confrontation at all costs
Today I dress for myself and not anyone else
Today I take my time to enjoy the little jewels of life
.
But the most important thing I do today is show that glamour is not about how rich you are, how pretty you are, or what designer you wear. Glamour is a mindset - a mindset that this girl right here has always strived for, even when she was laying in a hospital bed for months.
โ€”
You see, if I can do just one thing with my blog and this IG account, I want to inspire you to be more than who you think you are. I want you to embrace simplicity. But most of all, I want you to be Bijou! Basically, a woman who loves style, learning, and finding the little pleasures of life.
โ€”
So tell me, are you Bijou too? #thepetitebijou

  • Can I ask you a question? What would you like me to share? Sometimes I get so discouraged by the crickets on IG and would love feedback on what things you would like to see. Do you like outfit, travel, General lifestyle? Do you use the LTK app? Do you watch IG stories? Would love to know! -
On Friday, I visited @rewardstylehq and it was one of the best and most thrilling experiences ever! When I first started blogging, my dream was to join the thousands of bloggers using ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป When I finally got accepted, I worked hard to try and differentiate myself from other bloggers. That hit me hard
โ€”
What if you didnโ€™t like my modern vintage style? What if Iโ€™m doing this whole blogging thing wrong? What if this is just an expensive hobby?
โ€”
These are the questions I asked myself everyday until the ladies at RS and I sat down and chatted. Click the link in my bio to see what I learned about blogging from my visit to their office! http://liketk.it/2wnZz #liketkit @liketoknow.it  #thepetitebijou

  • {BIJOU COFFEE CHAT} Secretly humming the Coffee Break French chat theme music... anyone else listen to that?
-
Can I take a second to introduce myself? Many of you know me, but today I want to share three things you might not know about me...even if they make me feel awkward! -
1. My most embarrassing moment as a kid was when I got yelled at in front of everyone for forging my momโ€™s signature ๐Ÿ˜‚ because I didnโ€™t do homework 
2. I love my job so much, but the best part of it is meeting the people who read my blog! 
3. Most people would describe as quiet, but my family would also add chatterbox, which is a nice balance, I suppose! ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
How would your friends describe you? Iโ€™d love to get to know you better Leave a comment below! Also, should we have a Bijou coffee chat event soon?
