Summer is coming; and yes, it offers us yet another excuse to upgrade our wardrobes. (Wink wink!) But in all seriousness, summer in the Philippines can get intensely hot and humid, and wearing comfy and breathable clothing is a must. It also calls for an accessory upgrade! Though we love our leather bags, this season also entails letting them rest for a bit to make way for more practical options. We found these cute, trendy, and affordable summer bags that will only set you back ₱1,000 or less!.
