I’ve decided that crossbody handbags are better for my sanity. The smaller the better.

While I do have a few larger handbags that I love, I have a terrible habit of filling them and filling them…and then abandoning them. There’s a good stash of handbags in my room, half of which I’m avoiding because of the sheer quantity of random stuff I’ve jammed into them – like a stack of receipt-filled fashion piñatas.

Enter the mini crossbody. My favourites are the box shape. Right now, I can fit my mobile phone (complete with the oversized ‘lumee’ case), my wallet, a notebook, lipstick, mascara, memory cards, lipgloss, pens, and keys – random essentials. Of course, I always attempt to overfill it, but the bag resists, thus my life has less clutter.

And we haven’t even mentioned the biggest win of using a crossbody handbag!

You arms are free to rave – perfect for a day in the life of anyone who does things with their hands and arms. You can collect groceries with two hands, open doors with two hands – you can even hail a cab with both hands…though that might seem a little too desperate/aggressive.farfetch cross body bag rainbow anya

This post was brought to you by Farfetch – you already know why . Not only does it support smaller businesses world wide, but it’s populated with loads of hard-to-find pieces. My rainbow beauty from Anya Hindmarch was a pretty tough choice, but it’s safe to say it’s probably one of my smarter choices in terms of cost per wear. I’m wearing it with my Mx tee, which is part of a gender neutral collection from Mother Denim and raises money to support Self Evident Truths, a LGBTQ charity. Rainbows indeed!!
