NDM Style : The Perfect Cross Body Purse

Mar 27, 2014

Since becoming a mom of two I have been all about the cross body purse.  It keeps your hands free when trying to tend to two kiddos.  I usually carry a cross body and then have a tote bag filled with diapers and such for Frances in my car.  Ever since purchasing my clutches from the Gigi New York sale, I have been smitten with them and the quality.  This Gigi New York Elle cross body bag is no exception.  It is from their new pebbled leather collection and it is amazing, not to mention the perfect shade of blue- although it comes in many different colors if blue isn’t your favorite.  I also really loved the tan color.

For my birthday last weekend I carried it to the Firefly Distillery.  I went neutral with the rest of my outfit because I was feeling springy and felt like it really made the blue pop.

Dolce Vita Daffodil Sandals | Gigi New York Elle Cross Body c/o

and excuse my serious face, I prefer to smile but was feeling silly after my wine.  I was channeling my inner Tyra Banks.  This at least gives you a close up of my outfit.

The shoes are my Dolce Vita Daffodil Sandals.  I am telling you they are the best color tan sandals and comfortable. If you live locally stop in Thera M they carry these other Dolce Vita styles.  They are comfy and go with everything. and love my Rag and Bone blush colored jeans.  A must for Spring!

But back to the purse it is truly awesome if you need a cross body bag.   The inside is big, I can fit my big wallet, phone, sunglasses case, keys, lipsticks and there is still room. 

It is a great everyday to night purse!

    I need to buy Kate Spade Cross Body Bag. I saw my friend who was carrying this bag and i really loved the bag. Searching if, now i could get somewhere like that bag.

    The blue is so vibrant! I can see it paired perfectly with some florals or yellow for fresh spring outfit. Cross body purse is my prefered type, too. It's good to have both hands free,whether you have kiddos or to hug on bf's neck.

  10. I've been wanting a new crossbody. That blue is so pretty!

  11. Love that color–how perfect for spring (whenever it chooses to arrive!) Think I am going to try out the crossbody bag too. Much better for holding your iphone and wallet than either your diaper bag or your pants pocket! Especially since my husband calls my wallet a George Costanza wallet.

  12. Love! It's just like the Hermes Evelyne bag, minus the uber expensive price tag!
