Crossbody Casual: Bump Style


January 3, 2017

It’s a new year! (Still not sure how it’s possible it’s 2017, but I guess I’ll roll with it.) While I relish everything cozy and Christmas, I have all the heart eyes for the upcoming spring. I know, I know, it’s like 3 months away, but STILL. It’s coming. Alright, let’s talk about the crossbody bag…and the perfect bump style.

I’ve always been a tote girl, but lately I’ve fallen more in love with a good crossbody. Hands-free mama, ready to take on the world. Or, at least juggle a toddler and all of the things that go with her.

If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you know that while I love a good deal, I tend to invest in handbags. They’re my jam. So, when The Mister got me this one for Christmas, well, I might have peed a little bit. (Pregnancy problems?)

I’ve linked my top crossbody picks in the widget at the bottom of the post. (And they won’t all break the bank!)

And yep, I’m still wearing my trusty jacketI found a less expensive version here. You just can’t go wrong. 

Oh, and if you’re pregnant, you NEED these leggings.They’re the only ones I wear. 

Happy New Year, sweet friends!

    Braelyn collects rocks, too. But only the most special ones. I almost always have 2 or 3 in my pockets, purse, and cup holder 🙂

    Love the new tote! Well done, Santa Russ! I got a beautiful Tory Burch tote for Christmas. Big enough for my laptop, files, and multitude of lip glosses! It’s a special kind of joy.

  26. Your bump is so cute. I have found that cross body bags are more comfy to carry as well with a bump in front.
