The day I could start using small cross body purses was the happiest day ever! Now that my children are older, it means less stuff to lug around. Finally, I can choose a bag that is cute and still fits my needs. What a novel idea! I love that a cross body purse lets me keep my hands free, is compact in size plus you can find adorable options at affordable prices!
Mom style is all about comfort and these types of bags are great for gals who are on the go but can finally put a little bit more focus back on themselves.

It has finally happened. My kids are old enough that I could ditch my oversized bag and carry something cute! This must be the same feeling you get when you can finally get rid of your minivan for something sportier. I guess I can't only blame the kids. I am an overpacker in every sense of the word. But at least now, I don't have to bring along diapers, snacks and things to keep the kids busy for every moment we're away from home.
I'm all about crossbody bags for women. A mini or small sized bag is all you need to keep your essentials with you. For me, that includes my cellphone, keys, wallet, tissue pack and a small zippered pouch with headache meds, lipgloss, gum, eyedrops, etc.
I'm not even wearing the bag as a crossbody purse in these photos. Depending on what I'm wearing, I'll either wear it on my shoulder like this. Most often, I'll wear it across my body so I can keep my hands free. Plus, then it never slips off your shoulder. Even though my kids are 10 and 12 and pretty much self-sufficient, I'm definitely still on the go all the time and like to not have to worry about handling my bag.
Cute crossbody bags can be found at every major retailer right now. I love my Rebecca Minkoff ($89.97) version from Nordstrom Rack (mine is not available at The Rack online but this one is similar or you can get my style in the color Sandstone. I found the Black Avery bag on Amazon Prime for $130.). It is the perfect size for the things I like to keep with me and also opens at the top so I don't have to deal with any flaps. It keeps things super easy when I'm running errands.
Purses can be SO expensive! Of course, I have my eye on designer bags but I also would never spend a gazillion dollars on a purse. All of the purses I'm sharing are under $150 although some are WAY cheaper. I'd had my eye on a smaller bag for a while so I finally let myself buy it!
There are certainly cheaper options but I don't want to end up buying several cheap ones when I could just spend a little bit more on one that is the exact style I want and is from a reputable brand that will last a while.
This bag is not right for every mom occasion but I can easily move back and forth between purses depending on my needs. Having a mini crossbody bag, that I can grab for date night or when I'm meeting friends for lunch makes me feel like not only a mom but a woman again! It's funny how kids can sometimes change your identity (and I wouldn't have it any other way!). Do I think buying a new purse is self care? Hell yes, I do!
