Every Woman Needs a Big Cross Body Handbag

The color of this Tory bag is so pretty

If there is one thing every woman needs, it is a good cross body handbag. I’m not talking about one of the cute, trendy bags we see go in and out of style. I’m talking about a large, neutral cross body bag. One that you can throw over your shoulder with kids, while traveling, or on those days where you just have way too much stuff. Fashion and function all in one. My favorite combo.

Since the holidays have come and gone, I’ve been getting back to basics. I’ve been wearing a lot of black and other neutrals, and have found myself reaching for my tried and true favorites. The pieces that I love, but get a tad neglected during the glitz and glam of the holidays. For me, this Tory Burch Cross Body Tote is one of my all-time favorite bags. It isn’t new and has seen countless miles on my shoulders. You guys have seen this beauty on my blog over and over throughout the years, and for good reason. It is pretty, functional and never goes out of style.

My mom bought this Tory bag for me a few years ago for my birthday. I’m not really sure how it started, but she usually gifts me some type of handbag for my birthday each year. Since my birthday is in late November, I usually luck out big time because of all the awesome Black Friday sales. It is the world’s little way of saying Happy Birthday to me!

I realized recently that I have gotten stuck in a rut of talking only about my new purchases on my blog. Yes, that’s great and all because those items are usually still available to buy. However, I have a lot of classic items in my closet that deserve a little love from time to time. Those investment pieces that you don’t want to replace because you love them that much. This bag is one of those pieces for me.

I love all Tory handbags

  4. That bag looks so well made! I agree a good cross body bag is a must. I love your casuall outfit too!

  5. Your outfit is so cute! I love those shoes so so much and the Black has been my go to lately. I’ve also gone to a larger tote which is so fun because it’s my bright colour but also fits everything. Such a cute look my friend
