We're headed towards 'Team Tropical' as we edge closer to the 2016 Rio Olympics! It's not even spring yet but there's a flow of tropical colour and bold patterns on the streets already.
Equipped with Australian genes, I can't ever get enough juicy fruit, banana trees and brightly coloured birds in the way of patterns and motifs.
Here are 5 tropical bags hitting high temps on my 'want' barometer...
There's no hiding the fact this Pink flamingo silkscreen tote bag is totally gorgeous! In bold pink, the tote bag is hand silk screened and made in the UK by Dizzy Miss James using eco friendly inks. Click on the image to get your very own direct from Loren's (we're ecstatic to say).
Love the contrasting colour and geometric shapes on this pineapple bag. Handmade with love and pretty pineapple lining by WinkShirtShop.
A green banana leaf tote beach bag by the clever people at The Atlantic Ocean, Florida. These bags are bestsellers, so you'll need to preorder before those summer waves hit.
This lovely and large tropical floral bag is reminicent of a William Morris print. Perfect for taking on a plane for a summer break. Available from The Travelling Souk.
A tropicana theme wouldn't be complete without a cocktail. Here's a delightful flat sequin clutch by Prada to top off a great night. Just don't leave it behind!
