the diaper bag diaries

26 June 2014

denim: Gap
shoes: eBay {similar}
glasses: Amazon
bag: c/o Lily Jade

Overkill with the photos? I know.  I had to include Theo saying "jooooze" for "cheese." I'll never strike the right balance around here. Ever!

Anyway! If ever there were a target market for a diaper bag ... hello, Grace Patton. I really should just roll a suitcase around with all of my kidlet supplies just in case because you never know when someone will soil their entire outfit or the back up to the back up pacifier will go missing (happens daily, maybe hourly - along with our spatulas and measuring cups, I don't know why). Happily, Lily Jade (undying affection formerly professed HERE and HERE) makes designer diaper bags big enough, chic enough, and functional enough that I can leave our rolly suitcases in the attic closet with the rest of the stuff we use once a year that may or may not avalanche out upon the door opening.

Lily Jade just came out with a whole new product line and miraculously improved upon their already awesome inventory. I'm sporting the super roomy Elizabeth that can be converted to a backpack and I love the new canvas editions especially the red Madeline (also backpack convertible). They all still come with the amazing interior baby bag with the zillion (16) pockets and changing pad that will save the day in many a questionable public facility.

Lily Jade is offering 15% off any order until July 18th with the code GRACE15. 

Also! I just have to quickly quickly add that working (is blogging really work? not usually but roll with me, please) with Lily Jade has always been a real pleasure. They are always incredibly kind and generous and forgiving when I'm a little delinquent with my e-correspondence. I've "worked" (better with quotes? maybe) with quite a few companies via this here blog and they truly are one of my very favorites.

Enough with the Hallmarkage. Onward to a giveaway!

You have the fancy chance to win the Cailin in Royal Purple. You need a visual aid?

No problem ...


You will love it. I promise.

Pretty please follow the rules! Thank you thank you thank you!

    1. Question for you (sorry to hijack your comment!) -- do you use a wetbag? Which one? And where do you purchase that? And does it get smelly?

      Okay, I meant questionS for you. =)

  102. Cailin Royal Purple and the Elizabeth in Camel are both kind of dreamy. Part of me can't decide because I really love canvas but since it's my third baby coming this summer, growing up a little with leather would be nice.

  103. The Caroline in Brandy is my favorite.

    But what I really want to say is, "Phoebe the back of yo' head is ridicuh-lus!" I'm loving her hairstyle!
