Fashion Friday: Pretty Bags For People Who Actually Have S#*! To Carry!

I keep seeing all these teeeeeeeeeeny tiny mini bags everywhere and on every fashion darling, but you guys, the number of times I am going somewhere where I only need a lipstick and credit card is like…… never.  I am either toting around my laptop, samples and work stuff or a diaper clutch, sippy cup, snacks and kid stuff.  And I know a lot fo you are the same way! My dream bag would have a wide crossbody strap like the Hermes Evelyne bag with a body the size of my Cuyana tote- pretty structured with some pretty details on the exterior and a couple decent pockets on the inside.  Is that so much to ask?  Until that bag is made,  I rounded up a slew of pretty but roomy bags that can actually fit the stuff of life in them!

I also discovered this company, Senreve, which makes this great bag that can be a backpach, tote or shoulder bag and has tons of great compartments.  They also make this bag liner that makes it a cinch to switch bags without forgetting anything!

  1. Thank you this post! Love all of the bags! Do you have a favorite wallet you use? I know a while ago you posted that you had a Louis Vuitton, has that still been your favorite?

  2. Nice variety here. I aim for the smallest possible bag to avoid hurting my back, but sometimes there’s just a lot to haul. I like bags that zip shut across the top–otherwise it inevitably spills.

  3. We took the grandkids to the zoo today (give Mommy a break!). I had each kid bring their own backpack and provided snacks for them to pack; everybody had their own water bottle … including Grandpa and me. So no giant bag needed at this point. But we used to, back in the diaper days. But then, we had a stroller and stuffed it full with everything.

    On my childfree days, just need a cross body bag. But these bags look like serious Mama bags. Don’t know if this will link but am trying …

  5. Those are all lovely – I’ll carry the same black or brown bag for years, and they’re usually something of an investment, but I find myself wanting to branch out a bit now that my wardrobe is made up of mostly quiet styles and minimal color. The Tory Burch green is taunting me.

  6. I love the LongChamp bag with the cute little tassels on the front. I live out of my handbags so I could never downsize . And I’m terrible at changing out bags. Once I get all my junk in there, it’s not going anywhere for a while.

  7. I have always been curious about these senreve bags (especially as backpacks). For me, I carry so much stuff already that I wanted something lightweight/canvas– and a square-shaped bag might not do my MomBod justice at this point. I also need something crossbody that I can just stick my hand in.

    I made the Evelyne work with an Amazon organizer! It’s a super-long explanation, but you basically inspired my post this week :)
