punchy red

DSC_4055Most of the time, you’ll see me carrying around a satchel or tote, usually with some combination of notebooks, a laptop, and/or snacks in tow. But I recently decided that maybe it was worth trying out a crossbody bag for running errands on the weekend.

DSC_4053In an ideal world, I would get this bag–I just love its punchy orangey-red color and simple gold hardware. But alas, I’m a girl on a budget. So instead I’m trying out this one from Gap. It doesn’t hold a whole lot, but that’s kind of the point, right? I just love its fun little tassel 🙂

DSC_4066What kind of bag do you typically carry? I’ve also been weighing the pros and cons of a leather backpack like this one

  2. I’m a diehard crossbody girl! I have this black crossbody bag from Target about 5 years ago that looks almost like an old-fashioned camera bag and I love it…but it’s starting to show its wear. I need to find a replacement for it, and soon, before it falls apart, ha! I’m just so, so picky about my bags (they have to be crossbody, they have to be a certain size, I’m picky about color, etc.). The search continues!
