Today’s edition of Thursday Thoughts is on my thoughts about why you should own some clutch and crossbody purses!
My everyday bag is a tote style. This is my favorite because I can use it for a school bag, too. I own about 5 tote style purses. I like being able to carry it on my shoulder.
But, for a night out I love to simply bring a clutch. Below you see my fall and winter clutch collection. I have a few more that are definitely for spring or summer.
Left bottom is my favorite. It’s like a crackle gold with a gold tassel and a cute print on the interior and it was consignment! Yup – it was like $8. On the top left is a light grey from a local boutique that I bought about a year ago for $12. Finally on the right is an Old Navy leopard that I purchased a couple of years ago for around $10. So, as you can see, none of these are very expensive.
Do you own any clutches? I heard a tip to keep a clutch in your big tote or everyday purse for when you just want to simplify on the go – genius, right?
Then, we have the crossbody purse so that you can be hands free. I use these when I go to music festivals, farmer’s markets, flea markets, for traveling and sometimes just to run errands. It’s so freeing to not have to hold your purse!
Left is a fun hippy style that I got on Nordstrom.com a few years ago – I think it was around $20. On the right is a the Sak brand from a consignment store that I got a few years ago for about $12. It always amazes me how much these can hold. I can even put a water bottle in these!
Do you own clutches and crossbody purses? How often do you use them? If you want to just start with one of each, I think a metallic makes a great neutral to go with just about everything.
Here are a few examples from our good friend Amazon!
