Mommy Bags

Before my son, my bags of choice have always been big, bigger, and biggest! I like toting around everything because, "you never know!". I thought I could use my big bags as diaper bags and be practical AND chic.

Fast forward to now. I've quickly learned juggling my son, a purse, and a diaper bag is not so easy. I have (sadly) boxed up a lot of my bags and taken out my smaller ones and even bought a couple of new crossbody bags. This way, I have something that holds my personal, important items (i.e. wallet, phone, lipbalm). I can throw it in the diaper bag, or have it on me while I'm carrying the little guy around.

Here are my "mommy bags" of the moment. Other moms out there, how do you do the juggling act?

Louis Vuitton Pochettes (with long strap used for both)
Kate Spade Scout
Rebecca Minkoff MAC clutch and 3 zip crossbody bag
Chanel Wallet on Chain
Kate Spade Scouts (found at Marshalls for less than a quarter of retail price!)

  1. Great post! I have been wondering about this myself... no kids yet, but I'm hoping my bag collection doesn't become obsolete/completely inconvenient when I have a little one.

    Do you ever use your big bags as a combined handbag/diaper bag? This is interesting because I always thought bigger bags were more convenient with a little one... guess I might be wrong! :)

  2. Hi there! I started with using my bigger bags as a combo purse/ diaper bag, but quickly found out I much prefer having a smaller bag and an actual diaper bag.
