Stylish (and Affordable) Diaper Bags

As I’ve been learning recently, a stylish diaper bag can be hard to find. An affordable, stylish diaper bag is even harder. Here are five diaper bags I love—all for around or under $100.

1.- This canvas bag by Matt & Nat is actually $180, but I was able to scoop it up on sale recently for just $27! If you’re willing to wait, flash sales are a great way to get the look you love for less.

2.- JP Lizzy’s satchel diaper bag ($78) looks like a purse, but its large size and wipeable interior/exterior make it functional, too.

3.- I love the pattern on this Bella Tunno tote diaper bag ($89), which could definitely do double-duty as your everyday bag.

4.- The Momo Baby Sling Diaper Bag ($77) is perfect for dads. I love it’s modern design and dad will love that it’s not pink or floral!

5.- This gorgeous quilted bag by Babymel is normally $105, but it’s on sale right now for $98. Moms who’ve reviewed it say it’s spacious, stylish AND comfortable.

Stylish Finds for Mom: Lucky Brand Flats

Give your Spring and Summer wardrobe a pop of color with these everyday essentials!

The weather in New York last week was simply amazing! It’s breaking all sorts of records for the warmest Winter in years. And although Spring doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, I’ve already begun hunting for a few new additions to my wardrobe for the season. Especially shoes because my ballet flats from last year are beat!

So I did I little happy dance when I found these Emmie Ballet Flats ($59) by Lucky Brand. I’ve been wearing them for a week now and I love them! They’re super cute and the rubber sole keeps your feet comfy when pounding the pavement. The elastic is a bit tight, so if you have wide feet or they tend to swell, I would suggest going with the next size up.

Lucky Brand has lots of different ballet flat styles available but the Pop Combo, Leopard, and Ojai prints flats are definitely my favs. Leopard print never goes out of style, and the other two designs can add a pop of fun to virtually any outfit.
