Nine West City Bound Cross Body BagThe practicality of a cross body bag is undeniable. It’s almost the handbag equivalent of an LBD: a throw-it-on-and-go, functional, no-fuss piece that is perfect for travel, errand runs and packed summer concerts. This particular style offers you options; you can go hands free or detach the lean strap and carry it on your arm, instead. In five colors, there’s one for everything in your closet - all at a very reasonable price.

Madewell Sightseer PantsWearing a pair of pants isn’t completely out of the question during summer - especially if they happen to look like this. Beautifully cut, with a hint of slouch that doesn’t take away from a smart silhouette, these luxuriously soft pants pull right on and feel like a second skin. Pair them with a casual top for an easy, just-polished-enough look, or go head-to-toe dressy with a crisp blazer when it cools down.
