Over the past few years, I've definitely downgraded the size of the bag I carry on a daily basis. Maybe it's because I'm getting older and am learning to edit my life a bit, but it's funny to look back and see photos of me with huge purses. Not only were they entirely too big for my petite body, but like...what was actually in there and why did I need so much of it?
Having a kid which meant having a diaper bag definitely pushed me towards something smaller, but my desire to carry around less has coincidently lined up with shifting trends in fashion, too, as smaller bags have risen in popularity. Almost all of the bags I use nowadays are smaller crossbodies that comfortably fit a card case for the essentials (license, credit card, insurance info, etc.), a pair of sunnies, a lipgloss (or two or three, because let's be real -- old habits die hard) and my phone. I love not feeling dragged down by something heavy on my shoulder and being able to have both hands free because #momlife.
Fortunately, this trend isn't going away anytime soon. In fact, a great crossbody/mini bag is a must this Spring...and there are more options than ever! Which is why I wanted to share some of my favorite neutral picks. You may remember me saying I recently got this one from the Shopbop sale (seen here) and I absolutely love it! This one is at the top of my wish list right now as a splurge, but I'm also loving this suede beauty as a more budget-friendly option.
Which one is your favorite?
