Trends File: Crossbody handbags

Being such a practical girl, I’ve always been a fan of crossbody handbags. And after Matthew was born, the love for this type of handbag grew due to it’s functionality (free hands? yes please!). Today, it’s rare if I buy a bag that doesn’t come with a long strap, and don’t get me wrong, I do love clutches and top handles, but my lifestyle demands more practicality. Though, I have to admit, now that Matthew is almost 3, things are changing a little bit as I don’t have to tote around all that stuff that us mommas have to. 

Anyway, lately I’ve seeing crossbody handbags everywhere, and especially what I would call the “frontal crossbody”. You know, worn on the front instead of on the side? Yeap, I’ve been seeing that a lot lately, and particularly mini bags. What do you think? Are you a fan?
