Cross bodies, the Perfect Bags

Maybe it's because I have kids (and usually an additional bag to carry around) or maybe it is just that I am getting old and tired of carrying unnecessary weight or that I finally realized that the bigger the bag the more I have inside (have I mentioned unnecessary weight?). But, it's been years now that what I mostly wear are cross body bags. They seem to have the perfect size and fit for my lifestyle and, unless I am traveling (when I will carry a larger tote bag), cross bodies are my 'to go' bag.

I have selected a few I love, the most expensive mainly as inspirations: there are plenty of affordable beautiful cross bodies out there!

1. The COACH Leather "Willis" 70th Anniversary Edition. Available now as second hand, I believe, but mine - in British tan - goes with me everywhere:
