I have a one and a 3 y.o. When I’m out and about with them, I also have a separate diaper bag. So I like to carry just a small bag with me. My go to is CAVIAR or crumple calfskin square and rectangular mini. I’ve brought the lamb mini with me once but I was always worry I’d scratch the bag (when I’d be in a hurry with 2 little ones, I’d tend to quickly toss my bag in the car, or set it quickly down to the stroller). I also saw a mom with small baby at the mall with her Chanel 19 and it looked great as well. Personally I’m not a a fan of the 19 so I don’t have any of them. But if you like the option of having a bigger bag, I think it’d be a great choice since the lamb or goatskin on the 19 is very durable as well
My favorite is a small classic flap in caviar. Anything hand held is too difficult (like a trendy or cch which I love but both look best hand held and are slightly bulky worn on the shoulder). I also like a classic flap mini but all of mine are newer and not caviar (although the new one with a too handle could be a good option since it’s available in cavia). For me a woc just doesn’t hold enough. I never reach for my boy bag since it’s a tad bulky but I’m holding onto it still hoping I will at a later time.
I use my WOC all the time when I’m out with my little boy. Crossbody, understated, lies flat to the body. Having said that, I’m considering selling it, as once I put my keys in there, it’s such a tight fit, I struggle to close it.
Chanel old medium Gabrielle!
I have a 3 and 5 year old and I can put my essentials, tissues, antibacterial wipes and a full water bottle in it. Best is that it can be crossbody or a shoulderbag so handsfree.
Can probably squeeze a nappy in there too if you need.
It’s not too big and bulky either.
I was soo over carrying around a neverfull and or using a small crossbody and also having a bigger nappy bag...
Love the woc, as mentioned by honeybunch, it lies flat to the body, which is great when I am out and about with my baby. I have to mind so many things with a small baby and my handbag will not be one of them.
