the dreamiest diaper bag of them all ...

21 October 2016

I'm fairly to very certain that I've written more posts about my beloved Lily Jade diaper bags than any other brand because I'm that much of a super fan of the bags, the company, and their mission. I've had the pleasure of meeting the owners in person and they are some of the kindest, most salt-of-the-earth folks I've ever met and are fully committed to making beautiful and functional diaper bags that have long exceeded my diaper bag expectations. I've been using Lily Jade bags exclusively since early on in Phoebe's pregnancy and one of the most frequent emails I get is to ask, "which Lily Jade should I get?!" ...


... to which I always say: you can't go wrong with any of them (although I'm always happy to try to narrow down which one would best suit your daily needs!). We did get to test drive the gorgeous new grey Elizabeth (with jade lining!!) recently ...


and it is just as stunning if not more so in person than in pictures and I found myself asking, "should I be putting diapers and wipes, an emergency snack stash, and the rest of my usual purse inhabitants in here?!" because it just feels too pretty to use on a daily basis. Time and experience tell me that even with repeated wear and tear over the course of inevitable yearS, the bag will maintain its beautiful shape and yes! Fill her up - she can handle it. Over and over again.


Meggan Wood, Lily Jade owner and cofounder, has spent the last two years gathering feedback from customers and has added to and improved upon the original Lily Jade. The following changes have been made:

+ all brandy and charcoal bags now come with a jade lining
+ EVERY Lily Jade diaper bag can now be converted into a backpack (including the super popular and my personal favorite: the Rosie)
+ the Elizabeth (pictured above and below), the Madeline, the Meggan, and the Rosie all come in grey (and are all available for preorder and it is not uncommon for Lily Jade bags to sell out during the preorder period - just as a warning!)
+ Every bag now has more structure, a longer and wider crossbody/backpack strap for extra comfort, and a Lily Jade tassel with natural stone beads, PLUS the baby bag inserts now have more structure, better pockets, and handles

If you're not familiar with the baby bag insert - it can be filled up and moved from bag to bag without the unpleasant task of emptying and restocking your purse. It also makes for super easy organizing, is a dream to clean, and a fun pop of color to the bag's interior.


To celebrate the release of their new bag colors and all of the upgrades, Lily Jade is giving a bag away to one lucky Camp Patton reader (winner's choice!) Entering is super, duper easy and you'll be on your merry e-way in no time at all!

And! If you have any questions about the bags - hop on over to my Instagram at noon EST (10/21) and Lily Jade will be ready and waiting to answer!!!

Thanks for reading + playing, as always!

Camp Patton + Lily Jade Giveaway!

  1. I've got the Elizabeth ordered and I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival in November....its my "I made it through my very first pregnancy/treat 'yo self" gift to myself!!

    Adding the backpack straps to more of the bags = brilliant....I'm SO glad I procrastinated and waited to order :)

  3. I have been dying for one of these bags since my first daughter was born and two years later with a brand new little, it's definitely a "need" now lol I never realized how much stuff I'd be lugging around for two littles๐Ÿ˜…

  4. All Lily Jade are beautiful. The Elizabeth Brandy & Jade has been my favorite because of the side pockets. It's my dream to have this one day. The best of all that I love about this brand is that the inside bag is washable. Love that! Who wouldn't ! Such a perfect bag to wear on my back when I'm baby wearing my baby.

  11. I love Lily Jade! I have a Madeline I've been using for almost a year now and it's held up great to daily use (and abuse!). I've had my eyes on the Rosie for awhile now and would love to have one, especially with the new backpack feature!

  14. I saw that picture with the bag open and had the same thought... it's too pretty for diapers, wipes and the inevitable toddler food leftovers! I'm madly in love with that teal lining... fingers crossed!

  15. I cannot express how badly I want one of the new charcoal bags. I am personally a fan of the Madeline but that may just be name bias. :) I love your hair! And I also love how much Phoebe doesn't care.

  35. I've been frugal and using my numerous tote bags, duffels, and actual purse as a diaper bag...telling myself I really don't need another bag, but man, is it a pain trying to find my keys on a daily basis. Have been lusting over these new charcoal bags! Can be used all year round!! Excited to have a chance to possibly own one of these, I love them all.

  55. I adore the charcoal and jade color combo---so chic! The Madeline has been on my wish list since finding out I was pregnant. My favorite option is the ability to make it into a backpack carry since I will soon be toting a newborn and chasing a very active toddler!
