I am kind of in this glorious space with motherhood right now where my kids are still little but are self sufficient in ways I only dared dream of this time last year. Both are out of diapers, both can dress themselves, and both can eat whatever and go wherever with no equipment required. It’s weird and it’s wonderful and I’m not taking the lightness of my bag for granted. In fact, I have mostly shifted out of diaper bag carrying altogether and am finding myself back in the glorious and gorgeous world of purses! Like adults wear! It’s just the best.
Currently my go-to is the Ryder Satchel from Fossil, which is a multitasking mom’s dream in glazed leather, complete with triple compartments and expandable gussets for optimum organization. It’s not too big and not too small, and so, SO pretty. It’s the perfect bag for every gal (we both have one!), and most importantly it fits lots of snacks that you can share with your kiddos or like, not.
