The long unofficial first weekend to kick off summer has just concluded, and with a stunning show of sunshine and warmth, the whites of denim, shoes, jackets and dresses are beginning to step out from the closets. Concurrently, the farmer’s markets are beginning to open as well which means we all need a market basket. I have done some shopping for you at the bottom of the post, and you will find all different shapes, sizes and price points. My favorite however, is this one for less than $60 and with double leather handles. Peruse the images for inspiration (former First Lady Michelle Obama is included as she strolls about in Montalcino, Italy, recently) on how to style both summer whites and market baskets and get ready for a beautiful summer season.

  1. Shannon! Again I am struck with the simply luxurious look of jeans and a white t shirt with the straw tote. You’ve provided me summer inspiration. I am in active wear a lot, as I go to the gym and walk and hike and would appreciate simply luxurious style tips. Thank you for your posts! Heather

  2. Sharon, do you recommend putting wallet, keys, lipstick, etc. in a smaller closed bag inside the market bag? Maybe a cloth bag with a zipper?

  3. Mrs Obama outfit is not one of her best. I’m seeing her outfit more about fashion vs style which is something which you advocate against.

    1. Cindy, I can appreciate your opinion, but what I see is a women who is now free to wear what she pleases and not live by a certain set of rules and that too is what I advocate. We must each adhere to our own signature style. Be sure to tune in to Monday’s episode of the podcast (#159) in which I dive deeper into individual classic style. Thank you for stopping by!
