Mom's Day Out
for older mommies too!
I haven't had the need to carry a baby bag for nearly 40 years, but this Mom's Day Out is a great style for any age. I had been looking for a quality crossbody bag that is not leather because the weight of leather isn't the best for my 5' 2" frame. This microfiber bag is so lightweight and classy. Love the pockets and the adjustable strap. The fabric does not show dirt, and the bag is large enough to hold the pile of stuff I carry. Most crossbody bags are way too small to be practical. I even stuff a folded up straw sunhat in this one, plus a water bottle, umbrella, camera, makeup, sunglasses, readers, my Kindle, and the usual wallet and phone. Who knows....I may even add a baby bottle and diapers and take my newborn granddaughter out on the town! Hope Vera makes these microfiber styles in some new colors, but the black is so classic--you can't go wrong with this one.

My First Vera Bradley disappointment
Have a few wonderful pieces of Vera Bradley and have purchased many for gifts. Mom's Day Out in Classic Black is a smart looking, great size and compartments, however I find the plastic lining to be annoying and of no advantage. It is stiff with no give making it difficult to move things around. Also the strap is rigid and does not stay on my shoulder, constantly sliding off. Going forward, I will continue to purchase Vera but will check out the item more carefully.

I'm not a mom of young children, both of mine are grown. But, I love this purse! I have several patterned Vera's of various styles. I was looking for a black Vera Bradley bag that would have the pockets I like, but look stylish enough for work. This one is perfect! I love the two large outside pockets, that fit my IPhone in one, and my large set of keys in the other. The large outside zippered pocket is perfect for receipts, mail, etc. The inside is roomy, but not so deep that it's hard to see. The two mesh pockets are very handy. It would be nice to have an inside zippered pocket, but maybe there's a reason they didn't design it that way. I'm extremely pleased with this bag!

This is the best bag to carry when you are out of the infant stage. I got mine today and loaded it down to go to a wedding. I was able to pack one bottle, diapers, wipes, snacks, and a few toys in it without it bulging or looking tacky. I also had my cell phone and lipstick in it. The inside feels like the Kalencom material, so it is easy to clean when cups/bottles spill. I LOVE this bag!

I just received it today. I think the size is perfect. A little bit bigger than On the Go yet streamline. I was surprised to find the inside lining plastic. No where in the description does it reflect a plastic lining. I will give it a try for a few days and see if I like it. Disappointed with the liner and no inside zip pocket, just one on the outside. But two nice and deep outside pockets on the other side.

So far I am loving this bag just as a purse. My baby is still very young, so I still have a separate bag for her stuff (VB, of course!), but I can see where this bag will be handy in a few months. I love the mesh pockets inside and the adjustable single strap. I can carry it on my shoulder, or cross body. The two front pockets are great for my cell phone and keys.
My only complaint is the lack of an interior zipper pocket. I thought just about every purse had one of those, but this one doesn't.

I have many VB bags, and this one is another winner. The black is lovely, very dressy. Would prefer a softer handle as I use as a cross body, but not worth a rating downgrade.
Love that it is larger than the Clare and On the go but smaller than a tote. Top zipper was a must. This bag is great for travel, and carries my large VB toggle and zip wallet with room to spare, and should not be relegated to just a mom with babies bag.
