I don’t know about you, but I’ve been looking for a cute, lightweight bag for EONS that doesn’t contribute to annoyingly painful shoulders at the end of the day (or after a few hours tbh). Anyone? You know that heavy crossbody or handbag that constantly nags your shoulders and gives you a backache? LADIES, YOU KNOW WHAT I AM TALKIN’ ABOUT!
I wanted a small bag that was efficient, lightweight, but also one that I could store my wallet items in – large order, no? Nope, not for Lo + Sons and thank goodness for them! Ethically* and sustainably made, this new Waverley Belt-Bag/Crossbody has been such a game changer. I literally never reach for any other purse! Want to know more about it? (‘Course you do!)
*To ensure ethical and quality production, Jan (one of the owners), takes frequent trips to their factory in China (he lived for a period of time) to check in and make sure the conditions are up to standards.

I picked out the Sienna Exterior / Gold Hardware / Camel Interior mainly because…DROOOOL. LOL, jk but not really.
This bag can be worn as a crossbody, a wristlet, a shoulder bag, and even a belt bag (aka a stylish fanny pack). I know, I know…could it get any better? Actually, yes, yes it can.
*The Waverly has been upgraded recently to The Waverly 2. Same design, just a bit of a different interior that holds cards within a zippered pocket so it’s more secure.
So, aside from being able to wear it four ways – the adjustable strap allows The Waverley to convert from a crossbody to a shoulder bag, wristlet, and even a belt bag for a true hands-free convenience. IT HAS POCKETS! HALLELUJAH! But not just any pockets, pockets for the perfect travel essentials: 3 card pockets and 1 large slip pocket for a passport, keys, coins, or small personal items. Oh, and this cutie pie (and utterly amazing bag) is thoughtfully and meticulously crafted from world-class materials; a smooth buttery soft Nappa leather. The interior is lined with Lo + Sons signature hummingbird poly jacquard – THE CUTEST!
Above is what I typically carry in my bag – including my iPhone if I’m feelin’ reeeeeally hands-free lol. All of my essentials! My business cards, the one and only (and favourite) Osmia Lip Doctor, OLIKA’s Birdie Hand Sanitizer, Crunchi’s My Alibi Concealer in Light, business + personal credit cards, drivers license, Vapour’s Lip Velvet in Lavish (Sold out because it was limited edition.), a comb (cus you never know when you need to slick your hair back lol), ILIA Beauty’s Lip Crayon in Push It, the most amazing Muji fine tipped pen and Andalou Natural’s Kukui Cocoa Nourishing Body Butter (I use it for hand cream too) which smells like vanilla sugar cookies! Pretty impressive, right!?
I hiiiiighly, like VERY HIGHLY recommend this purse! It’s pretty incredible, versatile and light (did I mention it weighs .5lbs empty?) and super cute on! (See photo below ;))

Full Grain Leather Black
Have you ever seen a more gorgeous camera bag?! That was always my qualm, the camera bags I had were bulky and just not at all stylish. Either they were too heavy, not cute enough, too cheaply made and broke on me or just all of the above. Womp womp womp…
Well, thank goodness for Lo & Sons because this gorgeous leather crossbody bag was designed specifically to fit and protect your DSLR camera and it looks DARN good!
This babely bag features extra internal padding specifically designed to protect a DSLR camera and a small extra lens or flash. Not only does this bag, not at all look at all like your typical camera bag, but it’s also stylish enough to use as an everyday crossbody bag. (WINNING much!?)
There are so many lovely features, such as an adjustable strap length, several pockets that are discreet enough for essentials, a back zipper pocket for cash/keys/cards, two front pockets for memory cards, and a hanging SD memory card holder – freakin’ brilliant.
Fits Canon models: 5D, 7D, 50D, 60D, T3i / 600D, T3, XS)
Fits Nikon models: D90, D700, D3000, D3100, D5000, D7000
