The Perfect Summer Vineyard Vines Bag + Giveaway! {closed}

Earlier this summer, I had the amazing opportunity to try out one of Vineyard Vines handbags. Just look at how gorgeous this bag is. This bag is probably the quintessential summer vacation purse, and I love everything about it.

Love the gold feet on the bottom!

How adorable is the Vineyard Vines whale? Please excuse the reflection of my camera in the gold plate :)

So far, my Vineyard Vines straw tote bag has gone with me to Florida, California, Illinois, Mexico, Honduras,  Belize, and Grand Cayman!

Me and my beloved bag (oh, and husband too!) in Cozumel, Mexico

I'm in love with the high-quality straw material with gold leather, and the little gold accents are so adorable! I personally think that this design is so great for summer because it can be worn with casual or dressy clothing, and it will make you look put together and effortlessly chic!


As if I didn't love this purse enough, check out the lining! SO cute!

I desperately need a new camera, so here's a pretty professional picture of my bag from Vineyard Vines


I can always count on Vineyard Vines products for high-quality wardrobe staples, but I love the personality in their clothing and accessories. While this bag may seem classic on the outside, the cute gold accents and bright interior lining are so fun! I love knowing that while my Vineyard Vines clothing and accessory pieces are fun and of-the-moment, they feature classic designs and high-quality materials that you can wear for years to come! Definitely one of my favorite brands of all time :)

Giveaway
Vineyard Vines has generously offered to giveaway one adorable clutch to Ashley Brooke readers! My camera does not do this bag justice- at all! The material is a very smooth, high-quality canvas with a subtle gold shimmer thread built into the fabric. As you'll see below, my camera was not loving the shimmer effect of the fabric, and my pictures were not turning out! Thankfully I found some beautiful pictures of this bag, though!


Pictures belong to Vineyard Vines
I love that this clutch folds open for more storage but closes into an adorable, small clutch!
The inside lining also matches the bag featured above- bright blue!

See, my camera and this clutch just don't get along, but at least you can see the gorgeous shimmer in the fabric!

This bag normally retails for $98.50, so be sure to enter! It's a wonderful staple for any fashionable girl's wardrobe.
