Today is a dreary Friday, it's raining (again). I have been traveling a lot for work, and my mind is in a state of chaos. One of the best ways I find to get organized is to make lists. I love lists. I would have lists of lists-- if I ever let myself get that crazy and carried away. One of the current lists is baby things to buy...and there is A LOT of stuff that they recommend you need to be a mom these days. Of course you don't need it, but it is easy to feel like you aren't prepared and on top of it without the things on all of these lists.
Fortunately, the fun thing to shop for is a diaper bag. My husband asked me "Aren't you going to get a boy-looking bag since we are having a boy?" HELL NO. I'd rather have a pink and glittery bag, defiant of child's gender. More so because, even though it may tote butt paste and diapers, a new purse should be one of self-expression and something you really love. I even refused to buy something neutral enough that my husband and I can share. I anticipate there being a lot of boy-ish things in my future-- i.e. legos and Star Wars-- so fashion is one place I can still be me. If you're in the market for a new diaper bag (or maybe even your first!) then this is the place for you. To be quite frank, you could still rock these bags even if you aren't a mom; I think these bags look stylish enough to tote work files, knitting, or a weekend's worth of getaway clothes!
1. Summer-y neutral palate
A stylish design to be sure, this bag features a light gray and white design while still be functional enough to resist spit up and apple juice. Perfect for the designer mom on the go.
This gem comes in a few colors and is even able to be monogrammed. Super cute, versatile, and even better, it's at a great price. It is even on sale right now!
Who knew fashion could be so affordable? I like this bag for a purse in general, nevermind carrying pacifiers and onesies. This Skip Hop bag should last you through several seasons.
I couldn't resist this unique twist on polka dots! Artsy, stylish, and practical, this bag screams multi-functional. Can be used as a diaper bag or tote. The transitional features of this bag make it worth the splurge.
Every outfit needs some color, and this medium-tone blue is versatile enough to pair with whatever you are wearing. All the pockets make it a mom's best friend.
As any mom will tell you, babies and kids require a lot of stuff. This beautiful marriage of tribal meets geometric print will leave you saying "I do." Plenty of room for whatever your kid needs.
Okay I know I said you get one free, but I couldn't help but include this in my tops list. Lucky number 7 right?
This animal print number is a perfect accent to pop any outfit. Style meets function meets...love.
