This Non-Boring Bag Will Be Your OOTD Staple All Season Long


Summer’s already upon us, and that means swapping out your cuddle-weather wardrobe essentials for something fresh, fun, and worthy of pairing with warm-weather numbers—that includes your accessories, too. Think fresh textures and funky colors to refresh your rotation—and you can start with your everyday handbag. 

Now’s the perfect time to sport saturated brights and playful hues and stash your beloved black leather tote or tried-and-true suede crossbody (for now) for a reimagined summer purse. Case in point: This woven shoulder bag in avocado from Singapore-based fashion brand Charles & Keith. 

Funky fresh

Called the Cecily, this faux leather versatile carry is something you’ll want to wear on repeat this season. Practical and contemporary, it epitomizes the phrase “dopamine” dressing (wearing something that makes you feel good), thanks to its warm and earthy avocado green color that’s reminiscent of lush palm trees and foliage—a classic summer backdrop. 

Take this woven bag with you from the beach to the pool to dinner or kick it out of neutral by hanging it from the crook of your arm when you’re traipsing around town under the summer heat. What’s fun in the sun without your go-to accessory, right? 

Laidback, effortless glam

What we absolutely love about the Cecily is its relaxed elegance. While it sports a bold and bright hue that’s on-trend for summer, it still looks timeless and classy enough to be a year-rounder. It’s something you can still reach for all season long—and we’re all for having a staple you can use time and time again. That’s bang for your buck right there. 

And now’s the perfect time to cop one, since it’s retailing for 15% off until month-end, going for only P2,888.15 from its original sticker price of P3,399. 

If you’re toting this bag this season, it’s got everything you need in a summer carryall. Woven texture, check! Lightweight design, check! There’s just enough room inside for a cardholder, a pair of sunnies, keys, smartphone, a lip gloss, and a compact that’ll be secured by Cecily’s magnetic closure. Its adjustable strap allows you to carry the Cecily at any length you desire, too. Going on a night-out? Detach the strap to have it in tow as a clutch. 

Wear with a breezy linen tunic and denim culottes for a stylish weekend look, or a summer frock and a cute pair of strappy slip-ons for that definitive warm-weather aesthetic. Both ensembles make it look like you’re headed on a holiday and capture the ease the season evokes—with the Cecily (and you!) as the star. 

Shop the Cecily Woven Shoulder Bag in Avocado at 15% off (from P3,399 to P2,888.15) until March 31 at Charles & Keith in SM City San Lazaro.
