My Secret to Great Bags… Target!

I have a confession to make. I LOVE Target bags. Marshall’s used to be my go to for purses but I tend to prefer accessories without branding on them. Target has great quality bags that come in beautiful colors and and styles without the branding. Target bags hold up to the daily damage from mom life, kids, spills, and all around carelessness. I tend to use my purse for a whole season and afterwards they are still in great shape. Plus if you have a red card, there’s always 5% off and free 2 day shipping!

I am a huge fan of the hands free cross-body bag style. There are so many options and styles now with different shapes and colors. I love the new addition of the ring top handle and the structured top handle.

Cross-Body Pastels – Some beautiful options in pretty spring colors.


Pink Cross-body – This metallic color is perfect for Spring. It has extra zippered pockets with a structured top handle.

Grey Cellphone Cross-body – With a longer style, this cross body fits your wallet, phone, and a bit more.

Floral Cross-body – A beautiful floral print for Spring with an extra side pocket.

Ring Handle Tote Bag – Simple lines with easy access, this larger tote crossbody has on trend ring handles and enough structure to sit upright when you set it down.

Vibrant Cross-Body Bags – Structured bags in bright colors


Blue Mini Shopper – A larger cross-body in a mini shopper style in vibrant blue.

Top Handle White Cross-body – With a large fold over flap and large ring handle this cross-body adds neutral class to any outfit, also available in black!

Over sized Metal Handle Satchel in Red – A great red bag with chain detail, and again that trendy ring handle.

Turquoise Mini Chain Cross-body – Mini camera bag with chain detail in beautiful jade.

More Cross-body Bags – On trend Spring styles and colors


Pink Top-Handle Cross-body – Another great pink color with a structured handle and side pockets.

Canteen Cross-body – I love the fun shape and color of this canteen cross-body with just enough room for your essentials.

Canvas Striped Cross-body – I have this one, its a little larger than I thought it would be but perfect for carrying essentials and snacks in a great nautical print.

Floral Dome Satchel – Love this flower patter again, this bag is a little larger in a structured dome shape with sturdy handles, works as a cross-body or hand held.

Backpacks and larger bags are essential to carry all your mom needs and kids’ needs. I love that backpacks are stylish now and a little smaller than a traditional backpack. Its a great hands free option to the cross-body. I used to pride myself in carrying the minimal amount of baby and feeding accessories. These new smaller backpacks are a great alternative to a traditional diaper bag and it doesn’t hurt your shoulder! Its hard enough carrying around a car seat with an infant inside. There are also many stylish options at Target for larger totes so you can carry all your belongings with style. Many of the larger totes come with a cross-body strap so you can give your shoulder a break.

Backpacks – This larger hands free shape is great for mom life and comes in stylish options now.


Striped Buckle Backpack – Blue and white stripes for summer? Yes I love. This backpack has a square shape which adds interest.

Soft Brown Faux Leather Backpack – The color and the reviews for this soft faux leather bag are 5 star across the board. Great for bigger trips.

Grey Backpack – I saw this in store its even more beautiful in person. I love gray as a neutral for summer.

Blush Square Backpack – A nice sueded blush pink in a square shape. Its spacious inside and has a convenient outside pocket for quick to reach necessities.

Tote Bags – Bigger bags for the beach, gym, and light travel


Oversize Reversible Tote – More nautical stripes of course. The other side is a beautiful brown color, 2 bags in one!

Color Block Bucket Backpack – I love the color blocking with a pop of yellow. Perfect for spring and can carry through to fall. With an easy drawstring and striped straps and it has a convenient side pocket. Its also on clearance under $25!

Monogrammed Gold Tote – I love gold for summer. A perfect beach bag. There are lots of other monogrammed options available on the target website also. The monogram adds a nice personal touch.

Pink See-Through Backpack – This is also perfect for the beach. Some reviews were weary about people seeing inside the contents of your bag but on the beach its easy to find essentials. I love the fun bright color.

Hunter for Target Weekender Bag – A beautifully structured weekender duffel bag. Hunter products for Target available April 15th. Also available in navy.

I am a huge Target brand bag lady! Style doesn’t have to be attached to a specific brand name its about the aesthetic. The shape and color that ties into your wardrobe is what completes the outfit. Target is a great affordable alternative to on-trend structured stylish hand bags. Plus, saving on handbags leaves more money for shoes!



  1. I am a huge fan of Target, as well! These are such adorable bags and you are absolutely right! The aesthetic matters more than the brand name. And…the more budget friendly, the better it is! πŸ™‚ Great post!
