I would like to buy a small and light crossbody for walking near the house, such as walking the dog or taking a stroll. I just need space for keys, phone, and maybe a chapstick or folded bills.

Right now I either hold everything or use a wristlet.

I would love to hear your suggestions.

I use my Balenciaga Hip for exactly what you're describing. Walking my bulldog, strolls, or when I just need to be hands free.

Here's a pic showing what it holds.

Hmm the Balenciaga looks good. Maybe something like that! Maybe even smaller.

The mz wallace bag is too big. I tend to fill up my bag so I just want something like a wristlet but hands free.

How about a Classic Q Percy, mini Natasha or Karlie by MBmj? Very nice little crossbody bags in pebbled leather with multitude of colours each season. Marc Jacobs also does a nylon mini Natasha which is super lightweight and easily fits in your requirements too.

I love the Harveys Seatbeltbag Hipster. It's great because there is a detachable long strap that can work crossbody, on shoulder, and around the waist and there is a detachable wrist strap for when you want to use it as a wristlet. I also love the durability of the seatbelt material.

If you're walking the dog, perhaps you don't need to be terribly high fashion and spend a ton of money - I use a Travelon crossbody and keep a house key, Kleenex, flashlight, poop bag in it ... And I wouldn't mind if anything happened to it.

I agree knowing the budget would be very useful.

If budget is no issue, I'd personally love the tiny TPM sized Hermes Evelyne in a fun colour. I've often looked at it and really wanted to get it, then realised that I wouldn't be able to put anything practical in there. Not an issue if you just want it to hold keys and a phone.

I second the vote for Balenciaga Hip. If you happen to get one with the older style strap, you can also double-loop it into a little shoulder bag.

For a more modest budget I adore MBMJ leather and colours, so any of their mini bags would be great.

And that Longchamp Le Cuir looks so cute!! So many colours to choose from, too.
