The Franco Sarto Mom Purse - Even Moms Can Look Stylish

Yeas ago, I was the girl who refused to wear "mom purses." I believed that no fashionable girlie should walk around with big bags when they can strut the streets in something small and slinky. 

A blue Franco Sarto mom purse fits everyday jeans perfectly





Lo' and behold, I became a mom, toting a toddler everyday. Bring on the sippy cups, diapers, and anything that screams "mommy." Oh yes, bring on that mom purse too, the one I despised so much.

To my surprise, mom purses really aren't that bad. Strategically designed to fit your entire life, and cute enough to match just about any outfit, they are both essential and fashionable.

During my last shopping trip, I picked up a blue Franco Sarto bag, aka. mom purse, and instantly fell in love with it.


This color really suits the spring-y days ahead.



So roomy and comfy inside.


Oh look. It came with an umbrella. How handy!


And a coin purse too? Now I have a place for all that lose change.


 Love toting this bag around town.



Life changes, and our fashion changes with it. Doesn't it feel good to embrace how far we've come?


 What about you? Do you like mom purses?

  10. Haha I didn't know these were called mum purses. Are the Longchamp Pliage designs considered mum purses, too? I really like the one you bought. The colourful inside is so pretty!

  13. I still feel the same way you did but I like how you attempt to make it a fashionable piece instead of solely a functional piece.

  14. I love the fun stripes on the inside of the bag! And yes indeed, I'm a mom purse types of person. lol I've got to fit my coupon container, my wallet, a sippy cup, my keys, my camera and a whole slew of receipts in that baby! =)

  16. I tend to like big bags (don't call them mom purses lol). They carry all of my essentials but I don't like when the straps are heavy!
