Cheap Thrill: Old Navy's Mini Messenger Is Our Major Obsession

When we want gym clothes and bathing suits for less than a ten-spot, we know Old Navy’s got the goods. But every now and then, the go-to for everyday basics comes through with a wallet-friendly win that’s so on-trend, we can't pass it up. And here it is: We're adoring fans of the Cambridge Satchel Company’s chic and colorful totes, and Old Navy has created a cute (and ultra-affordable) version with this micro-messenger bag.
Sure, the real version’s probably a teensy bit more durable and roomy, but if you're looking for classic styling with a serious splash of color, you can't beat getting it for less than $20. This structured cross-body bag transitions seamlessly from day to night, and offers up the perfect opportunity to dabble in fluorescent yellow in a not-so-potent dose. Neon not your thing? The black option is classic and chic, while the white version adds a touch of mod. Is it bad that that we want all three?
