Crossbody Bag Round-Up

I am head over heels for the crossbody bag.  I recently was gifted one by my generous husband on Valentine's Day.  This classic staple is what I have long considered the quintessential travel bag, as it allows you to enjoy both form and function.  A larger crossbody can house all of your essentials and can dissuade  errant pickpockets from honing in on you as an easy target.  Orient the bag close to the front of your body with a firm hand, and that pickpocket won't even give you a second look.  To take it from day to night, remove the strap and use at as a clutch.  These versatile bags can be enjoyed both at home or wherever your travels may take you!

  1. great roundup, great blog

  2. I'll take the pink one and the yellow one please!!!

  3. I almost always take a crossbody when I travel. Like you said, it's functional and looks good. I'm a big fan of JPK bags. The pink is really cute! Have a great weekend, Kate!

  4. Fabulous! I love the pink and white bags. Have a gorgeous weekend, Kellie xx

  5. Thank you for this post--I've been on the lookout for a good crossbody bag. Now the dilemma is which to choose!

  6. Kate these are dreamy! I will say, though... in Europe I'd rock a black one only - so as not to draw added attention to it. They are SO good at pickpocketing in certain cities. But these were fierce!

  7. They are incredibly beautiful, but most of them are too expensive for me :(
    I have a few cross body bags, but I want one with these rectangle shape. Love it :) I hope I can find a less expensive version =P

  8. Holy Smokes you're Gorgeous!! And great blog :)

  9. Awww thanks so much! You are so sweet!
