Personal Shopper: A Cross Body Bag for Justine

Justine writes, "I have been searching for a crossbody bag that I can carry around this summer that isn't huge and clunky like my winter-time bag. I want something that's big enough to hold a pocket edition Sony e-reader, my cell phone, and my wallet. I have found many adorable mini crossbodies and a few larger crossbodies but they are never the right size. Please help! My shoulders will thank you."

According to Sony website, a pocket edition Sony e-reader measures 6 ¼ x 4 ¼ inches, so we steered towards bags in the 10-11 inch range. And, since its summer, we're guessing you want something bright, colorful (though many of the bags are available in other more neutral colors), and fun that will pair with all your warm-weather outfits. Hope one of these fits the bill!

Also try the Harvey's seatbelt bags - messenger style. It's my absolute favorite crossover bag - and would totally fit your e-reader and keep it safe.

I love my cross-body messenger bag from Briggs & Riley. It’s not as funky as some of the bags on this post, but it’s pretty casual and functional. It’s actually a multi-purpose bag and I can also take it to work as it comes with a very handy removable laptop sleeve!
