Once the boys started becoming more independent, I knew I could leave the whole baby bag thing at home. I don’t need to be carrying diapers around anymore- or burp cloths, etc….
BUT because they are always on the go, that means I am too! So a normal handbag (which is normally my go-to!!) isn’t practical right now.
I have given in to the comeback of the crossbody bag- which, by the way, I ROCKED in the 90’s!!! Right now it is the most efficient way for me to carry my life and still be available to run after toddlers hahaha.
That being said, I DO NOT ever plan on carrying a bag that is frumpy. And I also, DO NOT plan on spending a fortune for a bag that is just an accessory and not an investment piece.
I am also very into the straw bag trend for spring & summer… I love the idea of the beachy, light feeling it brings.
I found this one on Amazon for $18. It has detachable chains for using it as a crossbody bag OR just a clutch/wristlet.
This bag is big enough that it will fit the essentials- wallet, phone, lip gloss, etc. It is cute enough to even dress up with a pair of wedges and a floral/summer dress or kept casual.
At $18, this bag is worth it, especially if you are not ready to fully commit to the straw bag trend. (Bag link posted below)
