let's talk diaper bags.
when I was first putting together our baby registry, I only saw very baby-like diaper bags. you know, diaper bags that were super kid-friendly with animal shapes or bright colors. I wanted something functional AND chic.
and for the ones that were chic, they just weren't functional - they were tiny, they didn't have a lot of pockets (I hear pockets are important!) and weren't transitional. I wanted a bag that I could go out with for the day with my baby and if I end up going to lunch or dinner later that day, I don't feel like I'm carrying around a diaper bag.
I've resolved to having a few different diaper bag options - one for long trips and days and one for quick little trips to the store and one for an even chicer look, if we're taking the baby out on date night or something. and who knows, maybe I'll only use one diaper bag the whole time, but I'd rather have options than not!
this lily jade bag is the most gorgeous diaper bag I've come across - the color is beautiful and lustrous and goes with everything. and the leather is SO, SO soft. best of all, it has so much room, making it the perfect option for those long days when you need to pack everything in for the baby, but want to look like you're not schlepping around some giant ugly bag. after all, we should be able to have fun with fashion when we're mothers!
