{outfit one} i’m wearing: striped dress was a ross dress for less find, sam edelman wedges (not shown), michael kors watch, various bracelets and the lorna crossbody bag c/o hobo.

{outfit two} i’m wearing: jcrew chambray blouse, hudson jeans, jessica simpson wedges (not shown), michael kors watch, various bracelets and my lorna crossbody c/o hobo.

so…a funny story about crossbody bags. one of my bff’s in high school (1993) used to always wear her purse (we called them purses back in the day) across her body and i used to tease her and say “no one is going to steal your purse from you”. so now that i am OBSESSED with my hobo lorna crossbody bag, i am waiting for her to make fun of me. =) while i love all of the tiny cute little crossbody bags that are all the rage right now…this one is perfect for the mom in me. i can carry all of my stuff plus it fits all of eeps snacks and bribery toys  toys too! i seriously have not changed purses since i received this bag!

    Love this – that bag is so gorgeous…I really need a new one because the straps on mine are literally about to fall apart!

    You know, I used to never think I’d wear a cross body bag. To me, they were just the modernized version of a fanny pack. But then I got one, and I love it. Its just a small Coach one. But its so handy when you’re shopping or somewhere and don’t want to keep fiddling with your purse and readjusting it on your shoulder! I also have a small one from Zara as well! Yep that’s TWO now! I haven’t tried a big one yet but I love that one!

    You picked the perfect all around crossbody for style, size, and color! Love your outfit look with the knotted chambray shirt and white jeans! (Btw…we used to call them “purses” too…every now and then I slip with the lingo) 🙂

    I LOVE Hobo bags, and cross body bags are a must with kids. That is what I have been carrying since I stopped carrying a diaper bag. Your outfits are always so cute!
