As my due date approaches, I am tackling the ten million decisions on my plate one by one. What color do we paint the nursery? {Still undecided, though we may go with the gold standard Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter.} What type of carseat do we buy? {We're going with the Maxi Cosi Mico AP!} Finding the answer to the question: what diaper bag do I want to carry? prompted this post. 

It may be selfish, but I don't want to lose all elements of fashionability in the delivery room. One of my closest friends told me a good diaper bag is worth the investment because you carry it every single day. With this in mind, I decided to go on the hunt for a few chic diaper bags. I was happily surprised with my research! 

The 12 options above prove that becoming a mom doesn't automatically signal the shift to hideous handbags. {My personal favorites include this Skip Hop score and this Rebecca Minkoff stunner.} FYI: Many of the bags above are available in other colors, but I pulled the black options for uniformity.

Current mamas: what advice would you give on the diaper bag decision? This ultimate guide to diaper bags needs your two cents, of course. If you're not on the mom path just yet, you might just want to pin this post for future reference ;) xoxo {av}

  1. annnd i like one of the more expensive bags! :X of course. hah great round-up! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  2. From my experience, a diaper bag that doubles as a purse is your best bet. And mine started out stuffed with an extra outfit, blankies, etc... That I never used. It's good to start with those things though, because you just never know!

  3. Great post, cute bags! Fab blog, I have followed you with Bloglovin and if you ever get a chance to check out my blog I would be delighted, thanks!

  4. gotta say - i picked my fave diaper bag [petunia pickle bottom's carryall] and i don't use it that much. i used it daily in the newborn days, but now that julian is 6 months old i just throw a few essentials in my normal bag [it's a big free people tote] and we are good for the day. i keep a few extra essentials in my car. it's a little easier for me. also, we have the mico AP car seat and LOVE it! good pick mama!

  5. i went back & forth between getting a "real" bag and using it as a diaper bag and getting a designated diaper bag. Thank goodness i came to my senses and got the dedicated diaper bag. i went with the skip hop chelsea and haven't looked back since. it's easy to clean, light, has a million pockets, and looks stylish!


  6. Make sure there are two strap options- and that the shoulder strap is VERY comfortable when the bag is full. Cute options!

  7. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
