Sale PSA: Gray Paige skinny jeans, another Anniversary sale find (I love gray skinny jeans and buy almost every iteration to try – also my favorite Joie Parks are back in stock in limited sizes), classic Stuart Weitzman “Highland” over the knee boots, now 40% off, a pretty side stripe midi dress from DVF, now 70% off, and a simple chic striped cotton mini dress from ANO, now 50% off.
I get asked all the time for my favorite “mommy” bag –
And now that my son is (nearly) two and I’ve just had another, I have to say, it’s the Hermes Evelyne.
To be specific, in clemence, and for my frame, in the PM (29 cm) size.
It’s the perfect bag. The outside pocket (which I wear facing out, though I really don’t care which way the “H” faces, it’s your choice), is perfect for keys, phone, tissues. The larger compartment fits wipes, a spare diaper, random toys, snacks, my wallet, and a little zip cosmetics pouch. And there’s still more room.
I like it so much, that I added a second one (my first one is black – you can see the review here). I’ve worn the heck out of the black one – it has by far the best “cost per wear” out of all my bags. Since I’m boring, I picked another neutral for number two – Etoupe. Actually it was my excellent husband who picked this up for me in Europe, where apparently the PM size is running quite low these days (especially in France) – probably due to the low euro.
The Evelyne doesn’t replace a diaper bag, but I think you’d be surprised by how much it does fit. The PM size is perfect for all frames, especially smaller ones, and it doesn’t weigh you down. And the thick canvas strap is super comfortable across the body.
What’s your favorite running around town/mommy bag?
