2 Ways to Wear a Red Cross Body Bag ~ Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Bag

I have been wearing my Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag so much since I bought it...while it might be a little repetitive seeing it pop up all the time, I haven't had a reason to swap it out for another one of my many handbags because I'm finding it really does go with everything.

Two different outfits below showing how easy it is to wear a red cross body bag.

What I wore:

AwayFromBlue | Floral cocoon Kimono jeans easy breastfeeding / nursing outfit
Singlet: Best and Less black breastfeeding singlet
JeansSass and Bide  'neon nights' jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats (on sale in navy!)
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red

Why I wore it:

Wore this to sit on the sidelines of toddler T's swimming lessons. Have to wait until my 6 week postpartum checkup before I can get the all clear to do any exercising other than walking and the exercises the physio gives you in hospital. I'm looking forward to getting back in the water though!

Thought the colourful floral print on this kimono would look nice with the red saddle bag. I really liked the combination. The kimono works nicely as a little nursing cover when breastfeeding too.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, floral cocoon kimono, black breastfeeding tank, Sass & Bide skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

Other ways to wearfloral kimono and a mint teeblack nursing tank and a maxi skirt, Sass & Bide skinny jeans and a graphic tee, gold mouse flats and a Chloe paddingtonRebecca Minkoff saddle bag with a maxi skirt.

What I wore:

AwayFromBlue | Grey graphic tee pleated skirt red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag

Away From The Blue | Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red
SunniesRay-Ban new Wayfarers (30% off at Nordstrom!)
TeeGrey 'making magic happen' tee C/O Shein
Skirt: Vintage black pleated skirt from my Mum's closet
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red

Why I wore it:

It's been such a long time since I've worn this skirt! It used to belong to my mum, one of the few vintage pieces of clothing I have in my wardrobe. Thought that they grey slogan tee would work nicely with it, in theory. I didn't really like the oversized top and voluminous pleated skirt when I wore it though, not my favourite outfit. I felt I was constantly tugging at this through the day - especially in the waiting room of the doctors trying to calm a cranky baby with everyone staring...

I did like the colours in this outfit though - the neutral black and grey makes the red cross body bag really pop. A nice way to wear it, I've worn it with an all black outfit before too.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers (above), Making magic happen tee, pleated maxi skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag (above).

  3. I think a red bag acts as a great pop of color with monochrome outfits, but I have to say that I love the combo with the kimono.

  22. I've been using my Kate Spade crossbody bag in almost all of my outfit posts myself so I get the temptation of not wanting to switch handbags. At least that Rebecca Minkoff bag is super cute!
    I really love your second outfit a lot - it reminds me of what I normally wear!

  26. Sometimes I get so addicted to a bag that I just don't want to change it, so it is all fine :) I like the style and the colour of your bag, it looks good with any outfit! Black skirt is so pretty, I wish my mum has kept her skirts, pleated skirts was a big thing back in the day and now it is coming back again :)

  34. How ironic that all eyes were on you as you tried to calm baby down only for your shirt to read "Making Magic Happen." haha It's really the little things in life that amuse me! Because motherhood IS magic. We put up with so much. I think that bag is so perfect for what you need it to do. If something works, roll with it! (:

  40. I love both outfits! The floral kimono is so pretty and feminine and easy. The graphic is tee is fantastic and I really do like it paired with the pleated skirt. It sort of an unexpected pairing, but I think that is what makes it work!

  42. The bright bag and floral kimono look so spring-ish together! Although I don't think it's spring in Australia, but either way the bag totally fits with it. I like the contrast of the two outfits though - they both look amazing with the bag :)

  50. A pop of red always looks great. My sis has been looking everywhere for red ballet flats as her fave pair has fallen apart - we just can't seem to find them anywhere, oddly enough! I would have thought red was a fashion staple these days.
