Merona Straw Pattern Tote Handbag
This woven tote looks so much more expensive than it is ($35!). Use it all summer long at the beach, and then have it do double-duty as a cute storage basket for shoes or magazines in the off-season (after a thorough de-sanding, of course). To buy: $35, target.com.
