My youngest daughter is leaving for college next month and that means, naturally, a massive wardrobe update. (I can actually hear your collective groan!) In her defense, she did spend the last four years wearing a school uniform. So, a bit of a clothing overhaul was truly necessary.
But, my little girl has big ideas when it comes to her must-have list. A budget-busting, pale yellow Grafea leather backpack is already stowed safely away, a veritable avalanche of clothing has been arriving daily via UPS, and she has whittled her wish list of pricey Jack Rogers sandals to “really just the absolute essentials, Mom.”
Since she is going to school in the heart of Washington, D.C., some of the top items on her list are new crossbody handbags. And for once, I agree. A crossbody handbag is a smart choice for city living because it keeps hands free to tote a Starbucks latte, flag down an Uber driver, or text (and sometimes all at once!).
Above are nine great crossbody handbag options that I just know my daughter will love. Each offers crossbody convenience and great style. And, just between us? They are each under $100 (shhhh — please don’t tell her!).
