on my list | itty-bitty crossbody bags

When I made my small goals for this month, I said I wasn't shopping for clothes, but bags were a greenlight. I shared my cognac work bag wishlist last week, so this week is all about my other major bag need: itty-bitty crossbody bags. I don't purchase or own a lot of bags, but over the years I've been downsizing my everyday purses smaller and smaller. Lately I've been reaching for a tiny purse to take to the park, walking down SoCo, or out for night on the town (i.e. breakfast for dinner at my favorite 24 hour diner).

Here are a few of the bags I've had my eye on...

To be perfectly honest here, I started this post before I purchased the loveliest little vintage Coach bag. So...I actually found and bought an itty-bitty crossbody bag, BUT I know I'm not the only one with this item on their wishlist. I feel like each of these bags has a little something different for gals with different styles: the Crescent Shape Crossbody bag is so classic and looks like one of those bags that would last for years; the Camel Crossbody bag is a little preppy; the '70s Saddle Crossbody bag would be perfect for a day of shopping at flea market; the Adelaide Crossbody bag has super boho vibes; and the Mineral Leather Crossbody bag is the quintessential festival purse.

So, what are you looking for in an itty-bitty crossbody bag? What's on your list this week?


  1. Girl, I call this the #accessoryrule in my (attempted) year of no shopping ;)

    I have one brown vintage crossbody I use constantly, and treated myself to a quilted one from Target a few months ago. I would love a bright colored cross-body as well! I feel like that's so Summery! Your little Coach bag is dreamyyyy, great find!

    Love number 5!

  3. I love the little Coach bag you found! I picked up a little black crossbody before summer, and it's been a dream. Who knew that downsizing to a small purse would make me so happy?

  4. I love 3! I am so lazy about switching out my purses, so I have a couple of crossbody bags and I never wear them. I do like to know that I have them though, because on the rare occasion I go out late at night or just needs to be hands free, I know that's an option for me. Your vintage find is perfect!

  5. Yes! I love crossbody bags. I've learned to "edit down" what I carry with me now so I'm really into these smaller bags. I love #5!
