The Ultimate Accessory For Moms

By Lauren Hartmann |

I know that for a lot of people the foray into motherhood means saying goodbye to accessories for awhile.  Babies like to pull on necklaces and earrings, rings and bracelets can catch on your baby when you’re holding them, and big oversize purses are obnoxious when you already have a diaper bag to tote around.

BUT, since becoming a mother, I’ve realized that there is one accessory that is absolutely meant for motherhood and that is:  the clutch.

I know what you’re thinking.  “How could a clutch possibly be mommy-friendly?  I never even used a clutch when I was childless, because they’re way too high maintenance!” I know that it’s totally counterintuitive, but it’s true.  Clutches are the perfect throw-and-go accessory for your diaper bag – it’s like a mini purse.  Instead of carrying around a purse AND a diaper bag or throwing all of your purse items directly into your diaper bag, you can just throw the clutch in there and you’re done.  It’s easy to take out when you go somewhere sans baby too.

I’m obsessed with them and I wanted to share my clutch love with you.

Check out some of my favorites after the jump!

Cute Clutches

The Portfolio Clutch: Big Thunder

I own and adore this clutch. It comes in of-the-moment Pendleton fabrics, lined with durable canvas so it's both on trend and practical. I especially love that it's fun and colorful, yet surprisingly works as a neutral with many an outfit.
Clutch $67.00 from Sea Echo

    I also kept a laptop case in my diaper bag to carry 8.5×11 paperwork – sure did help when things flew or spilled as they often did!
