Although we are all venturing out a lot less these days (Sydney and Melbourne, we feel you!), as Mamas, we still need to carry a lot of stuff with us wherever we go. Whether we’re carrying groceries, baby belongings to the playground or essentials to a picnic in the park, we’re still very much reliant on our handbags! The bags we love most? The ones that can be transformed into baby bags, of course!
With a lot more time spent inside glued to our screens, we’ve been extensively searching our favourite bags of the season (because what else are we doing in between infinite loads of washing and watching Peppa Pig on repeat?!) Lucky for us, designers have left us no shortage of options this Spring/Summer – we’re giving you the low down on the bags that tick all our boxes and the TNS inserts to match with them!
Read on for our Spring/Summer wish-list:
Sunshine medium leather-trimmed appliquéd canvas tote -
Crafted from canvas with an appliquéd house name, this classic staple tote bag is spacious enough for all your daily essentials but elevated enough to easily take you from day to night if (and when) you require!
Pair it with the Compact Nappy Bag Insert in Sand.
Woody large leather-trimmed cotton-canvas tote –
Neutral bags are a big theme for Spring/Summer 2021, and the “Woody” tote is a versatile, chic option to cover all bases. Made from water-resistant cotton canvas, this spacious tote is made for a TNS baby bag insert!
We love this paired with our Original Nappy Bag Insert in Sand.
Prada RAFFIA TOTE BAG –
With a soft, deconstructed design made from natural raffia, this tote is a serious Summer VIBE. Take this laid-back, chic piece from the beach to brunch and onto afternoon strolls in the sunlight and call it a day! We’re obsessed.
Pair it with the TNS Original Nappy Bag Insert in Black.
Paula's Ibiza Cushion Canvas Tote –
Loewe's collaboration with Paula's Ibiza brings us the perfect blend of neutrals and muted pops of colour. The iconic colourful, parrot applique is a celebration of the Balearic Island's vibrancy and spirit. Inside, there's ample room for essentials and four slip pockets to but keep it extra organized with our Compact Baby Bag Insert in Black or Sand.
Anya Hindmarch I am A Plastic Bag Large Leather Tote –
Made in Italy from recycled plastic bottles and repurposed windscreen laminates, we’re loving the sustainability statement from Anya Hindmarch this season.
This large leather tote is perfect for the Mamma who can’t leave home without… well, everything. With internal zip pockets and card holder, paired with our Original Baby Bag Insert, this tote combo will become the organised Mamma’s new best friend.
Saint-Laurent Logo Print Wooden Tote Bag -
This vintage look, interwoven Saint Laurent tote is a versatile yet super stylish choice for the warmer months, it even comes with a detachable coin purse for your Mamma essentials (do too many pockets even exist?)
Pair it with our Compact Insert in sand or black for an elegant contrast.
