With summer in full swing, I'm dying to find a fashionable cross-body bag. I know, summer and cross-body bags don't automatically go together. Let me connect the dots. Summer means trips. Trips mean quality time wandering around new cities and attractions. Wandering around and large handbags do not go together.

I made the mistake of carrying my beloved Foley & Corinna City Tote, fully loaded, through the Metropolitan Museum of Art for 5 hours. I spent the rest of the trip popping Advil like candy. I don't think my neck has been the same since. So, cross-body tote it is. Preferably one that is small, so as to severely limit my ability to overload, and super cute. Enter the Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Percy Bag.

This new cross-body bag comes in Caramel (shown here) and versatile Black. At 6.5" high by 9.5" in length, this bag is big enough to fit the essentials for a day out and about, but still impossible to fill to a pain-inducing heft. The 25" strap will fit perfectly in tourist-friendly cross-body mode, while the now iconic Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock design keeps it from looking like your standard cheesy tourist accessory. Perfect for taking on summer vacation in style.
