the “mom bag”

The Edit Team receives lots of questions from mommy’s of little ones asking “what is a stylish yet practical everyday bag to carry?” Being a mom of toddlers myself, I understand how difficult it can be to balance function {ie. needing to fit a kiddo snack, sippy cup, package of Boogie Wipes, daytimer/notepad, iPhone, sunglasses, lip-gloss and wallet, just to name a few things floating around in my purse on any given day} with style!
I have found that a mid-to-large sized satchel or hobo-style bag that has an over-the-shoulder handle, as well an optional cross body strap is the perfect all-around bag for an on-the-go mom. These bags are totally “in style” and give you the option of throwing over your shoulder with ease as well as giving you the ability to wear the bag cross-body while traveling or whenever you need be be “hands-free.”

As far as color is concerned, your best bet for a year-round, neutral, go-with-anything bag is a nude or camel-brown color. But, if you are attracted to the pop color bags that are everywhere this season, go for it! Gone are the days of being “matchy-matchy,” so if you really want a yellow or coral or mint bag, wear one with confidence, and don’t feel like it has to perfectly “go” with your outfit! And, certainly do not feel like you need to change out your bag for different outfits, because let’s face it, what mom of little ones has time for that?! It is the perfect season to wear and embrace a bold-colored accessory!
