Closet Classics: The Crossbody Pouch

It's the weekend and I am ready to lounge around and do absolutely nothing! I really look forward to curling up in the couch with popcorn and a magazine or movie. Sweatpants and tees aside, there will always be that inevitable quick run to the grocery store, coffee shop, or park. In those instances, I like getting dressed without thinking - and that means always having a great closet classic within arms reach. They are pieces that I can just throw on and know will go with everything.  

As a mom, I appreciate items that are versatile, functional, and make a statement. Case in point - the crossbody pouch. I've been toting my Celine Trio  everywhere lately- pairing it with boyfriend jeans, a silky top, and heels.  It's the perfect little purse that can easily transition from work to weekend chic. My hands are free to travel or shop in and chase my 4 year old around. A bonus:  the three compartments come apart. I can snap off the pouch I want, turn it into a clutch or transfer it to a larger bag - makes changing purses so easy! Overall, its minimalist yet functional, and stands out without calling too much attention to itself (Celine has mastered this art). The price tag is not that wallet-friendly, but I've found a great alternative in this Pour La Victoire Arken
