Baby Content – 5 Diaper Bags for The Stylish Mom

The truth of it is the diaper bag is about to become your purse for the next couple of years, so why settle for something that looks like a diaper bag, as opposed to something that looks like a cool bag? Here’s our top picks;

5. Ju Ju Be’s Better Be Toki Doki edition

This is just soooo fun! This is for the fun loving mom who loves something a little more quirky and colourful. Toki Doki is renowned for their fun and whimsical prints and what a better collab than with Ju Ju Be on diaper bags? This is just one style of a few different options in both styles and colours. Available from Snugglebugs.ca for $149.99.

4. Skip Hop Duo Deluxe Adler in Nixon Black

Skip Hop + Jonathan Adler designs = Awesomeness. Jonathan Adler is a master of geometric prints and bold colours, and his collab with Skip Hop is making for some mommy-must-haves that everyone can get behind. Available at snugglebugs.ca for $99.99

3. lululemon athletica’s Vino & Vinyasa bag

Ok it’s not actually designed to be a diaper bag but it’s loaded with handy pockets for all the gear you would need for the gym, and whether it’s a baby bottle or a water bottle going in the pockets – who cares?  Also they always have some sort of wet/dry pocket – brilliant for separating dirty/wet baby items from the clean. I have given numerous lululemon bags to expectant moms over the last number of years and they have all been very well received. This particular style is one of my faves and from what I understand it’s here to stay for a few months, so expect different options (colours/materials) to arrive with Summer. Order online or pick up at most lululemon stores for $138.00

2. Tory Burch’s Stacked T Billy Baby Bag

Love this bag for looking like just a great bag and not screaming “I’m a diaper bag!”. 7 Exterior pockets and 3 Interior plus a change pad – the function is there to match the fashion. Available at ShopBop.com for $399.58.

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Preppy Nylon Eliz-A-Baby

This is the bag that captured our hearts way back before it was reasonable to be buying a diaper bag. Again we love it for not looking like a diaper bag! Sleek and stylish, available in a variety of colours at both Marc Jacobs and Shopbop.com for around $370.

Home Content – The Wallpaper Diaries

I’ve already got into my wallpaper woes, so I just thought I’d show you some of the options we were looking at. We borrowed the books and brought them home and as lovely as they are in the daylight, they are going into a hallway and lose all colour. I thought for sure we needed a really light coloured base, like white or off-white but in the evenings you can’t see any of the detail. Actually only for a few hours in the middle of the day can you see any of the detail. So, sadly, the search continues…

This Grey sample we didn’t actually bring home, I think it was a little pricey but it would be a better fit than the other options.

This was my husbands preference but it started to look like wrapping paper to me and I think we’ll grow tired of it quickly.Image

Forgive the sideways pic below, grasscloth is super cool and I found one that has this great geo print on it but the price is extreme! So I didn’t see the bang for our buck here.

This was my favourite of them all, but again you lose all detail without it being in direct sunlight all day. Also my husband wasn’t feeling the ‘sparkles’. You can see I was already picking out paint colours for the two end walls.

Image

So this seemed like a different option, only two colours in it – the base and the print which was all glitter. But too busy. Cool, but busy.

So the search continues. Stay tuned for the next round.
