My Favorite Crossbody Bag for Summer

With the Memorial Day behind us, Summer has now unofficially started! This means it’s now time to transition your wardrobe for the summer- starting with your bags! Crossbody bags are my favorite for every season, but they are especially great for Summer! When I stumbled upon Eleven Thirty Shop, I knew I would find the perfect bag of the season here!


Summer is all about pastels, soft neutrals, and white. We’ve worn enough black during the Winter and it’s time to shed the layers and move to something more fun and cute. I typically like a single color for the bag, but I’ve also been noticing embroidery a lot more this season (LIKE THIS) which can really help pull the look together.

A different color strap can also help add a little contrast and depth to the look. The strap of this Anni Mini bag that I’m wearing has a slight difference that makes it POP, but you can also go with a bag that has a completely different color strap (LIKE THIS).


I’m also all about the smallest bags possible. I try to really limit the things that I carry around to only the truly essential things I need. Having a very small bag helps this. Also, when you carry around less in a small bag, it’s also not as heavy and you don’t get weighed down by your belongings (physically and metaphorically). I also looooooove having a handle on the bag so I can choose to carry it or hang it over my body.

This is why the Eleven Thirty Shop is so perfect. From the Katie Mini to the Christie Mini (WITH TASSELS) – all the bags are the perfect size! They even make the cutest backpacks – which is what I almost got instead!
