Rejoice! You’ve just about made it to Memorial Day. And, those thoughts of late-night barbecues, pool parties, and the laziest of days seem more real than ever — you know, after daydreaming for the last six months. But, while you may have your summer dress and swimsuit strategy all mapped out, it’s time to rethink your bag situation.

You need something fun and fresh to kick off the new season. So, we rounded up our favorite styles from the last week that your arm will reach for — immediately.
