That’s how that song goes, right? Errrrr. Well today I’m talking about cross body bags, the fashion world’s latest obsession. This is NOT a fannie pack, people. I ran into my friend Kate Stevenson (yes, the famous artist) at Hampden Clothing over the weekend and she looked SO chic wearing a little cross body bag. She says it makes her life so much easier to throw big stuff in a diaper bag below the stroller and then have the little bag swinging over her so she can reach little necessities easily. And you know what, I believe her. Because famous artists don’t lie. Except maybe creepy ones who are trying to get in your pants. But that’s not Kate. Duh.

Aaaanyway, it doesn’t take much to motivate me to get my shop on (I saw that eye roll), so considering that Shopbop is still currently running their Friends & Family promo and offering 20% off your purchase (using code “WEAREFAMILY13“), it seems like right now is the perfect time to indulge your summer wardrobe.

Here are my favorite of favorites.

I envision these being perfectly swung across your body by day and hanging from your shoulder by night.

  1. Totally digging the boho look!!

  2. I completely agree with Kate. I’m constantly dragging my giant bag everywhere. Most of the time it can get shoved down in the stroller or left in the car except I still need a place for my wallet keys and cell phone and lip gloss so I end up toting on my shoulder. What’s your favorite one?

  3. I know! Totally the Rebecca Minkoff, any of those fabulous colors.

  11. I have been dying to jump on the cross body bandwagon and you are helping me jump in! haha I love all of your picks but my favorite is the Annabel bag, so chic!!

  12. They have a ton at TJ Maxx and are the biggest travel necessity that exists! I got a little gold Cole Haan number for Rome and it was amazing! My big bag felt like it weighed 1000 lbs when I switched it out!

  13. Love your picks, epecially the Loeffler Randall and that Marc Jacobs Mini. I was going to pull the trigger on a Loeffler Randall but the one I want is not available at Shopbop, boo!!

  14. Katie’s bag is just gorgeous. Makes me want a crossbag too but I need a big one for all the crap I have! Hope you treated yourself to one:)

    Great picks! I love cross body bags they are perfect for so many occasions. I bought the RM Mini Mac and I love that I can wear it as a cross body or just over one shoulder.
