Q: Any suggestions for a cool handbag for women with a toddler? It has to have space for a diaper or two and can’t be carried in hand in case I need both hands to grab the little one. I carry a backpack, but my friends keep teasing me that its 70’s or 80’s style and that I am not moving on…
A: The ideal handbag for women with a toddler combines the style of a traditional handbag with the functionality (and pockets) of a diaper bag. Our favorite bag that bridges the two is Hayden Harnett’s Ibiza Tote.
Why is it perfect? A detachable strap allows this bag to be worn either crossbody (leaving both your hands free) or under your arm. Plus, we love the two large exterior pockets–perfect for stashing extra diapers.
