Say WUT? Yup, that's right. This beautiful premium leather bag is not only a fantastic tote...it's a diaper bag!
When I was shopping for a diaper bag all I could think of were the complaints and gripes my friends shared about their own. That, and how I wasn't digging any designs for diaper bags for gripes of my own that I shall not bore you with.
I'd known about Lily Jade bags for a while, and after asking my friends for recs regarding the popular diaper bags on Amazon (and having them privately tell me later that they disagreed with each other--bahaha!) I decided to contact Lily Jade instead. To my extreme gratitude they graciously sent me a bag!
Lily Jade has a bunch of different styles and colors, all of which look sophisticated and not like typical diaper bags at all. I got the Madeline in Brandy, which I looooooove!
Three options for wearing it: Tote, Crossbody, Backpack (as shown in first image)
A few of my friends said they resolved to using a backpack because they liked having free hands. The utility of a backpack sounded wise and like something I'd end up doing, except for the fact that I can't help but cringe at how it looks on a day-to-day basis. (Vanity, okay?) But this Lily Jade bag can be turned into a backpack but still looks chic!
Doubles as a diaper bag AND a normal tote. There's a separate insert (shown below) that has pockets for diaper/baby things. You can easily unsnap the whole thing when you're away from the baby, take it out, and use the bag as a normal tote. When you need baby gear, you don't have to repack it all--just take the entire insert full of baby gear and snap it into the Lily Jade bag. GENIUS.
Even without the insert the bag has a bunch of pockets for organization and storage of your normal non-baby stuff. It's a really great bag in general, for diapers or not.
Can be worn to work, run errands, or to play with kids!
This is the diaper bag I would seriously wear ANYWHERE, with or without a baby in tow. Here are a few ways to style and use it:
It's a sophisticated tote in a soft leather, the perfect complement to this look for work.
Errands & Hanging Out
Wear it as a crossbody for hands-free errands or hanging out, while still having contents accessible.
It even works with a very casual outfit--denim shorts and a tee--while allowing you to be super duper hands-free in backpack form. All your supplies will be there when you actually need to change a diaper, but won't really be in your way otherwise!
It's more expensive than I would typically pay for a bag, BUT I was totally ready to have my friends pitch in and get one for me as a baby shower gift if Lily Jade had not been so generous as to send me one. Cuz Lord knows I'm gonna use this all day everyday. Worth it!
Lily Jade is currently running a sale right now, too!
OR, you can win your very own! Lily Jade is giving you a chance to win your own Madeline bag in Brandy. Seriously, even if you don't and won't have a baby you should enter. Just take the diaper bag insert thing out and use it as a normal bag! Enter below, and good luck!
*Open to US and Canada
I received the bag as a gift but was not otherwise compensated or asked to write anything or review the bag. I'm just *that* happy about it! Oh, and as a side note, the owners of Lily Jade are really freaking nice.
