The nice folks over at Lily Jade were kind of enough to send me one of their diaper bags. I don't typically love diaper bags, but this one might convert me.
Rolling into the Farmer's market in Admore, yup: I gots my bag, Pax gots his handcuffs.
There are a couple of things I really like about this bag. One, it can go from a cross-body bag….
…to a backpack. My love of backpacks-as-diaper-bags is pretty well documented on this blog. This bag, however, since it is a diaper bag, has a million different pockets, which means I can quickly and easily find my lipstick, cell phone and keys without hunting around for 25 minutes only to realize that I left them at home/car/restaurant/still in the lock. WHAT.
Also, the leather is gorgeously soft.
Originally, my plan was to do a review and then send this bag over to my sister, who is newly pregnant. I mean….that's the right thing to do, you know? My kids aren't really in diapers anymore except for a few nights a week when we remember to stick one on Pax….
But the pockets, you guys. THE POCKETS. And the whole cross-body one second backpack the next? I didn't know how badly I needed this in my life. I've been shocked by how many times I've converted from one to the other in the same day. It's revolutionary! A genius trick-bag for moms!
