Finding the perfect diaper bag is not as easy as one might think. It must be stylish and functional. Before having Lucy I did not really think much about the functionality of a bag. I was just looking for something that was cute!
While I was pregnant I purchased this bag from Pottery Barn. I loved the neutral color pallet and just thought I should go with the traditional diaper bag style. While this bag is great bag for overnight trips or long hauls it just wasn't a good fit for an everyday diaper bag. I started to realize why so many people went for a backpack style bag.
That is when my research began for the perfect diaper bag that was stylish, comfortable and organized. I quickly came across Lily Jade. I was basically drooling over the removable insert that has TWELVE pockets to keep everything in the right place. I loved everything about the Elizabeth Camel & Jade bag. It was not only beautiful but super organized and functional. Then I saw the price tag...and had to tell myself to stop falling in love with this perfect diaper bag that meets all your requirements.
Two weeks later my husband came in excited telling me that my mother's day gift had arrived and he thought I needed it early (we ALWAYS give each other gift early. We are the worst at keeping surprises) and of course I agreed. I opened up the box to find my dream bag and may have squealed and danced around a little. I was totally surprised since I had only shown him the bag once and that was while I was scoffing at the price tag. After carrying the bag for several months I can honestly say it is totally worth the price. It is beautiful and doesn't scream I am full of diapers and wipes! I also love that when I am out of this season of life I can remove the insert and have a beautiful leather bag.
Here are some great diaper bags that are functional and beautiful for modern moms
