Summer Must Have - No 5 - The Coloured Cross Body Bag

We're ending on a coloured high with my final summer must have. 
The Coloured Cross Body Bag 
I have one of these in bright pink and I love digging it out in the summer. It's a fun pop of colour as the fashion peeps would say. And a perfect addition to your white jeans/denim jacket/metallic sandals combination.
My favourite from all the trawling of the internet is this cobalt blue bag from Zara. It also comes in kelly green and lime green (neon)

or how about this more subtle number from River Island in a gorgeous blush pink colour

Great to see Vince Camuto's stock coming into the UK via the Kurt Geiger website. They do amazing boots and up to now, it wasn't possible to order to the UK. This gorgeous cross body is a real treat item but look at the colour and the metallic strap - divine!

Loving a bit of yellow this summer so this black/yellow bag caught my eye on the Next website:

Indulge me to finish...I've got Mulberry's on the brain right now.
A red Alexa - lush!

There's also a purple Mulberry but I'm not going's too tempting!
Hope you enjoyed my 5 days of Summer Essentials. While you've been reading them, I've been sunning myself in the South of France with the husband. I'm back tomorrow so will share some holiday pics with you once they are downloaded! 
Tomorrow's post is a guest one to cover some of the holiday costs - needs must and all that.
Back with you Monday x



  1. I need more colour bags in my life - bought a fab one in the Esprit sale this week - GREEN!

    Hope you've had a lovely time away despite the rain!

  2. Gorgeous - have just indulged in a small bucket bag in a lovely deep coral from Next. It was only £25 and was leather . It would have been rude not to. Hope you have had a lovely rest. Xxx

    1. Oh that sounds FAB!! Love coral..looking forward to seeing that on your blog soon! x

  3. Lovely! Love the yellow one from Next. I recently bought a cross body in TK Maxx in a nude colour and love it. Hope you had a fabulous holiday.

  4. That first Zara bag is gorgeous - obviously I am loving the red Mulberry, too!

    1. Well, you'd have to...not many girls out there who wouldn't! x

  5. I love cross body bags as they are hands free & kid friendly! Love the blue Zara bag! Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip & look forward to hearing all about it! :) Ax

  6. Love cross body bags and could do with some colour for summer! Hope you had a fab time in Nice:)

  7. Love the Zara bag and the Next yellow and black (and the Mulberry!). Hope you've had a fab holiday - love the South of France - one of my favourite places! xx

  8. The Zara bags are amazing. Great great value. Repeats to self, do not need, do not need.......!! Love the yellow and black next one though! Haven't seen that x

  9. Lovely bags, of course like you would love the Mulberry! White Stuff have some great cross body bags... just treated myself to a sunny yellow leather one, 15% off too ;-)

    1. Oh, never thought about White Stuff! off for a peek.. x

  10. Definitely an essential for life as a mummy. Colour pop is the way to go - love the Next bag!
    Hope you had a great break:)

  11. I going to have to try resist the Zara one navy be more sensible but adore the yellow.Nothing like a good handbag. always go across body as easier to hold small hands and push buggies.

  12. I always think that the Zara bags are so good......I love the idea of a coloured bag too!p.s. Sounds like you had a fab holiday xx

  13. Thanks for all the lovely comments - so glad you liked my choices! Back home after a lovely holiday now x
