Savvy Shopper Saturday: The Perfect Weekend Accessories

If you're like me, you tend to put off many of your errands for the weekend. I personally love to shop and bop around town on a sunny weekend day. The only trouble I run into is that by late afternoon my feet are aching and my shoulder feels like it's about to fall off from my heavy shoulder bag. I've been searching for a stylish and functional messenger bag to sling across my body and a cute pair of sneakers that won't feel like I'm a walking Frankenstein. I found both accessories, and, since it is Savvy Shopper Saturday, they're under $100 combined!

Let me start of with the Nine West Active Weekend Nylon Cross Body Bag. This appropriately named bag is the perfect messenger style. Measuring 11 x 10.5, this black nylon bag features an adjustable strap ideal for both shoulder and cross-body toting. There are two front zip pockets, a back zip pocket, and interior zip and pouch pockets. Minimal, muted gold-tone hardware finish off this bag's modern look. Available for $39 via Nine West.

Now that you have a great functional bag, you must pair it with an adorable pair of shoes. The Easy Spirit Traveltime is the perfect sneaker clog. This comfortable shoe, which I've personally worn around town thanks to Easy Spirit and their 20th Anniversary celebration, has wonderful cushioning and shock absorbing qualities which are a welcome break for my aching back and feet. With an array of available colors and materials from leather to suede (!), you can take your pick of which style best fits your personality. My personal favorites are the silver leather (pictured) and black/white suede combo. It's no wonder the Traveltime was the 2006 #1 selling shoe in dept. stores. Available for $59 via Easy Spirit.
