Recently I’ve been struggling with the whole ‘mum bag’ issue again. I love my Tiba & Marl Elwood backpack and Pacapod Mirano, which are great for keeping Finlay and Parker’s things organised. However, when it comes to my daily items I often find myself slipping everything into my pockets simply to save time when out and about. It’s made me realise I need to find a better way of keeping my essentials safe and reachable!
After a quick search I think I’ve found a solution in: The Mini Bag, which has just enough space to safely keep your valuables inside. It’s something I first noticed, Amelia Warner rocking when spotted out and about with her family (albiet a Chanel version). These mini bags are the perfect way to keep your things in easy reach, whilst still being light enough to not be a pain – Here’s a few that I’ve been eyeing up!
I love the size and metallic colour of this mini bag, it’s one that could go with every outfit and suit all seasons.
Founded by Emma Hill CBE and Georgia Fendley, the Hill & Friends collection of mini bags are perfect for mums on the go who want to add a little happy pop of style to their outfits. I’m a big fan of the leopard print, plus this cute new happy mouse design!
This bumbag is made from top quality nylon with faux leather and patent detailing. It can fit a small pack of wipes, a nappy and a padded changing mat.
4. Yvonne Kone Mini Purse
A beautiful tan mini purse by Yvonne Kone, which is big enough to store small essentials. The bag is crafted from “soft Italian suede with cotton lining. Features a zipper closure with a stylish pull, as well as an adjustable strap ornate with studs for an edgy touch.”
5. Vince Cross-Body Bag
This small black leather cross-body bag by Vince hits that perfect balance between smart and casual.
The simply stunning Gucci’s ‘GG Marmont’ bag… what else can I say? All the heart eyes!
How lovely is this simple circle bag from Baggu, which also comes in a range of pretty colours. Scout & Co Kids are a UK stockist, but this specific bag would need to be shipped from the US.
This petite cross-body is roomy enough to carry all your essentials. The zip-around side pocket is handy for movie tickets, receipts or your favourite red lipstick.
Another favourite from Yvonne Kone is their bum bag, which features numerous pockets and one roomy main compartment to keep everything you need organized and securely stowed.
Finally, the Mini Lily by Mulberry. I love the chain detail and the fact the postman lock means you can easily open it up with one hand. It’s surprising how much you can fit into this little bag, including your iPhone 6!
Do you own a mini bag? I’d love to hear what your favourite everyday bag is!
