The Diaper Bag From Heaven

Even though I'm bi-coastal, and every now and again I find myself on TV or radio I really pride myself on being down to earth and non-materialistic- which is quite a feat considering I'm bi-coastal, on radio/TV... and I grew up in Plano, Texas- where our unspoken motto is: It's not how you feel, but how you look.

Your average neighborhood block in Plano, TX

That said, I cannot help but gush over my new  über stylish diaper bag. I got it just over a week ago and I am completely in love with it. 
This is JJ Cole's Caprice "Silver Drop" Style  - I dare you to tell me this looks like a diaper bag.

Y'all if loving a diaper bag is wrong I don't want to be right. And if you seriously think my loving a diaper bag IS wrong then you've never been a parent with a diaper bag that was also your purse/backpack/wallet/wristlet/"murse" etc... 'cause guess what you trade all those cute designer things in when you have a bambino. Well, not anymore thanks to JJ Cole!


Like my own mother, I always wanted to be the hip cool well-dressed mom. I swear carrying this bag makes it easy since it goes with ANY outfit. Hellooo- a busy mom's dream come true!

I'm smiling because of the bag NOT because I enjoy shopping

I may leave the house without make-up on these day but I'm still looking cute with my JJ Cole Caprice Diaper Bag on my side.

I used to pretend that I didn't care if my old "gender neutral" bag with it's brown, aqua, lime and cream stripes didn't go with what I was wearing. But I was lying to myself. (And slowly killing my inner Kim Kardashian.)

I also seemed to be under the illusion that I could take everything I wanted with me for an outting. I had no idea how much baby stuff I was going to have to carry with me at one time. Now, the reality has set in.  

Which if you are a new mom, you know that list includes but is not limited to: extra diapers, a spare change of clothes or two, toys, swaddling blanket, pacifiers, bottles, diaper wipes, a diaper changing cloth...I'm sure I'm forgetting something- but you catch my drift. 
Inside the JJ Cole Caprice Diaper Bag

My old diaper bag really couldn't carry all of that but I pretended it could which is why it was rarely zipped up and I had stuff spilling out of the side pockets, which by the way didn't zip or close. So every time I bent over it was a disaster. I was a walking hot mommy mess. That was until the heaveans opened up and the diaper bag gods smiled upon me and I recieved this bad boy. With it's 10 pockets and super sturdy diaper changing pad you can't go wrong.

Let me just say that as soon as I walked into my lactation center aka "Baby Breastfeeding Bootcamp" all the moms looked my way and the first question out of their mouths was "Where did you get that?" I actually get asked that all the time now.

  1. I was the same way about diaper bags! I actually almost bought a really big coach purse!! I really like the JJ Cole Satchel...looks very similar to the coach bag i wanted :)

  2. Girl you hit it right on the nose, all the stuff we have to carry! You forgot one important essential for us nursing extra tee shirt for the unexpected let downs! I had it happen twice when I was laughing, then I turned into the reason everyone was laughing! It was like the gates of liquid gold had exploded! Congrats on your little beauty, I too have a little girl who is 3 1/2 months old so I am trying to get the hang of this mummy thing!
    Love the satchel in charcoal infinity and the caprice in shadow! They look lovely!

  3. I have 6 kids, and I've never found the perfect Baby Bag. This one looks good, bet its not available in Australia

  4. God love you! 6 kids! I used to think I wanted that many but now I'm thinking half that may be my absolute limit. I will talk to the JJ Cole reps and ask if they are in Oz for you.

  5. This bag is great and you look super stylish with it... My first child is due at the end of August excited but also nervous because I'm used to traveling very lightly (a clutch with only keys, wallet, phone, lip gloss) - so trying to imagine all of the things needed in bag with the baby... this is great, sleek, stylish, etc... sharing the contest on FB with my Holistic Moms to be group now so they can check it out too! I really like the all black bag and the one with the purple flowers.

  6. With that very cozy-looking and adorable diaper bag, I can also have that sweet smile on my face. That’s really stylish and at a glance, I couldn’t say tell it’s a diaper bag. Haha! Anyway, I bet you’re enjoying carrying this diaper bag along and all the stuff that can fit in it. :)
