My Favorite Tote Ever!

I have a confession to make. This beautiful red tote I been enjoying and receiving compliments on daily for over a month is really… a diaper bag! Yes, it’s a Lily Jade designer diaper bag, and it’s my favorite tote ever! Just over a year ago, my dear friend Meggan and her husband Landon launched Lily Jade, and their success has been nothing short of remarkable. Thousands of women all over the world are sporting these beautiful, functional bags and loving them as much as I do. Stay-at-home moms. Working moms. Celebrity moms. And even empty-nest moms like me.

I think the reason so many women adore Lily Jade bags is because of their quality, versatility and style. The leather is super soft, and everything about this bag is incredibly functional for moms with little ones as well as those who’ve outgrown the baby years.

Moms with babies love the removable, washable, baby bag (which I use as a car organizer). As an empty nest mom, I like all the compartments… there are so many of them! Since I began using my Lily Jade Madeline bag, I’m more organized and always know exactly where my keys, wallet, phone and sunglasses can be found because they each have a home!

I also like the fact that this tote isn’t heavy. I just can’t carry a heavy bag. Want to know what I like even more? I can wear it three ways: shoulder straps, cross body, or backpack. The backpack option was invaluable when we traveled to New York City over the holidays. I filled it with way more stuff than I normally do, but the backpack helped to evenly distribute the weight so that I wouldn’t risk injury.

There are two more reasons to be smitten over this line of bags. The couple behind Lily Jade truly have a heart for moms (they created this line to honor all moms!), but especially for adoptive mommies. In fact, every month on Adoptive Mommy Monday, they give a bag to a special mom who has demonstrated the life-affirming gift of adoption. If you are an adoptive mommy or know one who would love to tote a Lily Jade diaper bag, you can share your story and photos with Lily Jade to be entered into the monthly giveaway.

The second reason you will be smitten with Lily Jade bags is because each style and color is on sale right now! Head over to Lily Jade to hear their story and see why the Madeline bag is my favorite tote ever.

  7. I love big bags. Bags that I can carry the whole house in it 😉 My husband always teased me but when he has stuff that he doesn’t want to carry, he’ll hand them to me and guess where they go? I rest my case 😉 Great tote you have there. A sure keeper
