Remember how I found a Fossil handbag to act as my diaper bag/purse combo?
While I have been enjoying it and have received lots of compliments on it, I think I might need another option. With Kingston getting so big and squirmy these days, it is hard to pack that bag around with me and carry him (he is too big for his infant car seat). My current bag has three large compartments that work wonderfully for carrying extra diapers, bottles, wipes, and a change of clothes in addition to my usual wallet, cell phone, etc. However, it can get very heavy to carry for a long time when we are out and about. So… I have been thinking about the crossbody/tote combo – have you tried this? What do you think? I personally would like to have the long strap option so that I could throw the bag diagonally across my body and have more “free arms” for carrying Kingston… but as I have never carried a handbag this way, I need advice. Was it helpful? Could you see it being helpful?
[Note: After I wrote this post, I found this picture which shows what I am looking for – however, it is $200 at Gap. Something cheaper would be nice.]
