Trend: The cross body bag is a perfect accessory for busy moms

Fashion trends come and go. For various reasons, you may not be down with some of them. Some don’t fit your body type or are just too old, youthful or dowdy for your taste. Then once in a while a trend comes into style that is already part of your normal wardrobe and  you give yourself a high five because all of a sudden you’re hip and you don’t even have to buy anything new to be trendy! 
That’s how I felt when I learned the cross body or messenger bag styles were hip once more!

I have own several of these types of bags and as a busy mompreneur and head of the family transportation, athletics and social committee, I need to keep my hands free. These bags are perfect. The cross body strap provides security that you’ll keep your bag close to your body like in crowded events or locations, while having the flexibility to have your hands free for other things.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s); e.id  = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

One of my favorite bags is this vinyl sporty bag I picked up from somewhere years ago and always return to time and time again. It’s great for the gym or quick trips to the market.

A couple of weeks ago, I took my kids to a science museum during Spring break and balanced out a black and white palette with a bright Coach Cross Body bag I got from Marshall’s last season.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s); e.id  = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s); e.id  = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

And more recently, I spotted this leather fringed cross body bag with gold hardware which mixes the fringe trend with the messenger style bag trend.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s); e.id  = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);
What do you think of the trend? Would you rock a cross body bag?
