Anita writes, "I'm searching for the perfect new bag/purse. Having finally graduated from my diaper bag, I'm in need of something stylish for both casual & dressy events that can also fit an extra set of toddler clothing & essential items. My ideal bag is one that I can carry on my shoulders or wear across my body. And would like to stay around $100. Here's a link to the diaper bag that I've been using for the past 2 years."
Hi Anita! My little one is finally at an age where I can shove some Cheerios and a diaper into my purse and head out of the house. I love not being weighed down by a clunky diaper bag! I've unearthed a few possibilities for you, keeping the colors neutral for the most versatility. But if you're feeling adventurous, most come in brighter colors, too!
1 - Izzy & Ali Presley Hobo ($90) My personal favorite out of the lot!
2 - Kathy Van Zeeland Perfection Satchel ($60)
3 - Melie Bianco Emma Bag ($98)
4 - Vitalio Vera Large Carolina Crossbody Hobo ($60)
5 - LeSportsac Deluxe Everyday Bag ($78) A little on the casual side, but definitely durable!
6 - Jessica Simpson Kendra Tote ($98)
7 - Esme Chain Handle Tote ($72)
