This has nothing to do with the actual lugging around of the thing; nope, this is more a vanity issue.
A lot I had seen in stores earlier on in my pregnancy were covered in huge (I'm talking Texas-sized) neon polka dots or, far worse, monkeys and hippos or something comparably kitschy. I want, nay - NEED - something chic and classic. Basically, I'm looking for something that looks more like a purse than a preschooler's tote bag.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that many a designer has heeded this fear of the "big, stupid diaper bag", which many of we mommas experience. And, bless their hearts, they've designed some pretty chic options for those of us looking for something a little more sleek.
Here are a few I've found that may just make the final cut:
1. Kate Spade "Stevie" Bag - here (also in striped - Bag #4) // 2. Skip Hop Diaper Bag Duo Onyx Bag - here // 3. Timi & Leslie Marie Antoinette Bag - here // 4. Kate Spade Striped "Stevie" Bag - here // 5. Timi & Leslie Charlie Bag - here
We are going with the Britax B-Ready Stroller with the coordinating Britax Bassinet (both seen below) in black, so that it's gender neutral (you know, in case we opt for a second bambino later...which of course, we probably will.) Ergo, I want an equally simple diaper bag to coordinate. Capisce?
To the moms out there: how did you decide which diaper bag to carry? Where did you find one that fit your style specifications?
