I've got that I need a new handbag itch and I'm trying to be really good and not scratch it! A staple in my wardrobe is a small crossbody bag where I can carry all of my important things (ie wallet, phone, and house keys) with me at all times. Having 2 kids I need to have both hands free and be able to run after a really quick 3 year old while lugging a 1 year old. Carrying a small light bag on me means that I don't have to worry about my valuables getting stolen. I usually keep all the baby/kids stuff (nappies, wipes, drinks, snacks, etc.) underneath the buggy and I'm not really that bothered about keeping my eye on them at all times.
There's a huge trend this season with mini crossbody handbags and I'm finding them just so irresistible. Here are some drool worthy bags and somebody needs to hide my credit cards before I get click happy!
Chanel Classic Small Flap Bag in Metallic Patent Calfskin - Classic bag in a mini size and shiny leather.
Balenciaga Metallic Mini City Gold - I'm seriously addicted to Balenciaga bags and own a few. I love the distressed leather and they are practical and chic at the same time. This mini in their icon City is just too adorable.
Celine Nano Luggage - Ugh it is sooooo impossible to get my hands on this bay! It literally sells out as soon as it hits the shop floor and I barely make it out to the shops. I love love love the Celine Luggage Tote but it is just so impractical for my lifestyle right now. But I can totally swing this if I can only find one!
Chloe Marcie Small Saddle Bag - My sister and good friend use the bigger version of the bag all the time. It is super durable and goes with almost anything.
Givenchy Micro Nightingale Satchel - An ultimate fashionista bag in a mini size.
Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch - I know I've written about this PS1 Pouch before but I absolutely love mine and although it looks small you can actually get a lot in there.
Chanel Classic Flap Bag in Patent Calfskin - If only I could have a Chanel flap and every colour and size. You can never have enough Chanel in your life! I love the more square shape which makes it a little bit more fun.
Balenciaga Giant 12 Silve Mini Pompon - I've always loved the bucket shape of the Pompon and it looks so much cuter mini sized.
Mulberry Lily Shoulder Bag - A very versatile bag that can be dressed up or down. Worn as a shoulder bag with the straps short or casual across the body.
