After James was born and I began to venture out of the house again (albeit in short trips) with him in tow, I quickly realized how much stuff you need to take with you when you leave the house with a baby. Hauling around the stroller and my big diaper bag meant that I had really no room for my purse. Cross-body bag to the rescue- it works wonders because it's so easy to just sling across your body. Look ma, no hands! It's small- so it really just holds my keys, phone, small wallet with cash and debit card, a couple lip glosses and a few pens. Now, I love carrying wearing this bag even when I'm not with the little guy.
This one is the one I ordered (but mine is tan python print):
Michael Kors- $129.00
Here are some other cute options in varying price ranges:
