FOR THE OFFICE
When you're rushing to get to work on Monday morning after a weekend away, save yourself time and don't switch the contents of your beach bag to your purse -- just carry your tote to your desk. Follow Heidi Klum's lead by pairing a simple straw bag with a blouse, pencil skirt and heels — just make sure to button up your blouse all the way.
A straw basket is as essential for a picnic as it is when wearing feminine, floral day dress like Kate Bosworth, who paired her cap-sleeve dress with an Edie Parker basket to the Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films.
