Wednesday Wants

At the start of this summer, I had the chance to meet up with fellow blogger, Albertina, from Mimosa Lane, in New York City.  We had a really great lunch followed by some shopping on the Upper East Side.  Albertina was patient and kind enough to indulge me as I dragged her from shop to shop,  looking for the perfect cross body bag.  I ended up coming home that day with a very simple one, similar to the one above.  Now that I’ve had this bag for over a month, I’m fully converted to the whole small cross body bag concept…especially during this hot and humid summer (who has the energy to shlep a giant leather tote around?) Even better, I get to keep my hands free for more important items, like my iced skim lattes.  Another plus, cross body bags are much more affordable than larger bags…which is good as I’m now contemplating adding another one to my collection.  Right now, I’ve got my eye on this tan one with a fun tassel by Rebecca Minkoff, (so perfect for fall) this perfectly chic Jojo cross body bag from Shopbop, (I’m partial to the blue one) the Marcie Small Round Bag by Chloe, this bright green mini sac by Clare Vivier (it’s under $175.00!) and also this cute silver bag by Stella McCartney, with a chain strap for a bit of a dressier look.  Has this hot summer changed your approach to fashion? I’m betting it has…

  1. I just spent hours looking for a lightweight cross body for a trip to Europe big enough to hold a bottle of water and all my other necessities…I found a perfect one at Kate Spade. I may have to add that Claire Vivier one into the mix as well!

    Albertina is such a sweetheart..I am sure you both had a blast!

    Stay cool today!

  2. They look good in your pics, but I feel silly wearing something so small. Sheesh, I totally need to break out of my big-tote-box!
