Lily Jade Review And Giveaway: A Backpack, Cross-Body, Diaper Bag Hybrid That I Just Can’t Quit




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!

Sooooo…yeah.  Mine.  But!  BUTBUTBUT!  Lily Jade bags are currently $75 off (from now until April).  Normally $335, these bags are on sale for $260.  The sale lasts until the bags are restocked in April (so buy one now for $260, and they'll ship it in April).
