Who doesn’t love a crossbody bag? Pretty much the minute I became a mom, the big, gorgeous satchel went in the closet and the crossbody bag came out.
As soon as I started figuring out that I was going to need about 15 hands to lug my new kid and all of their stuff around with me at all times, I realized that the heavy shoulder bag with my entire life in it was just not going to work out.
It was a tough breakup. But, I got over it – especially when my husband surprised me with an adorable Kate Spade crossbody bag and wallet in a delightful Tiffany’s blue.
I mean, if Kate Spade and tiffany’s blue doesn’t convert you in an instant – who are you?
Ever since then, I’ve embraced the hands-free purse life wholeheartedly.
Crossbody Bags on a Budget:
You don’t need to spend your 401k to get a great crossbody bag.
That’s why I’m sharing crossbody bags in varying price points, including one festive red bag in each category.
Personally, I think red accessories act as a sort of neutral.
They really add that pop of color that can elevate a monochromatic look.
Want to wear all black and not look like you’re in the secret service? Add a red crossbody bag!
A red crossbody bag is the answer to all outfit dilemmas.
Let’s get shopping, shall we?
1. SAVE: SOLE SOCIETY CROSSBODY – UNDER $50
Affordable and gorgeous. It also comes in a lovely blush shade and a chic black.
Sole Society makes really high quality shoes and bags with great little details that really elevate the bags and make them look so much more expensive.
Here are some other crossbody bags from Sole Society you may want to check out.
2. SPEND: KATE SPADE CROSSBODY BAGS – UNDER $200
Is there anything Kate Spade does that I don’t love?
No, the answer is no.
These bags are beautifully made, last a long time, and will get you tons of compliments. Designs are always changing and being updated. Always look for promotions, they run a lot of great deals that’ll save you big.
Don’t forget to always check the sales tab on her site first to see what deals she is running. They produce so many bags, so quickly, that you can still get a fairly new design at a steal.
3. SPLURGE: TORY BURCH & MORE – OVER $200
Once you start shopping in the luxury category, it’s really a sky is the limit sort of thing.
Since I’m not quite there yet, I just stare at them and yearn.
And maybe salivate. A little. Okay, more than a little. #NoJudgment
