No, it’s not too good to be true – it’s another great Etsy find. The shapes and colors of seller Bayan Hippo’s handbags caught our eye, but the prices and versatility made us click “Buy” on not one, not two, but three of the styles. In case your karma needed persuading, the totes are made of 100% eco-friendly cotton canvas.

How can you resist the nautical stripes and white rope strap of this oversize Sailor Tote ($33)? It works as a beach bag, market tote or just an everyday carry-all, and also comes in an equally chic red style.

This mustard yellow slouchy hobo bag, the Nagy ($35), comes in a versatile color and is perfect for the city or country girl. We’ll be wearing it with a striped Picasso tee, dark jeans, and a great attitude.

In case you were wondering, the medium-sized Sailor Tote ($33) is how you incorporate nautical into your everyday look.  It comes in the yellow above, and is the quintessential weekend bag. Beach house on Martha’s Vineyard not included.
