Sometimes you need to leave the giant carry-all at home and take a small, fun purse for the night! When I mentioned working on this one, my mom friends chimed in and said they needed a small purse for the times when they didn’t have the kids and the accompanying diaper bag. I specifically wanted a bag that didn’t have a lot of outside pockets, with a secure top zip so that I could set it in the booth next to me at a restaurant and not worry about it falling over and spilling everywhere. I wanted it to fit on my shoulder AND be able to hold it in one hand without touching the ground. It couldn’t be too big, but it couldn’t be too small (because I’m me). So this bag could be for date night, movie night, or girl’s night! Or, if you're a small purse person, it's the perfect everyday bag!
