I don’t have to tell you how much I love Lily Jade. My Shaylee diaper bag has been the best investment I could have made. You can read my full review of the Shaylee in my previous blog post here. This bag has been by my side since the day it arrived. On my arm, changing mom lives everywhere. Okay, maybe not everywhere but definitely changing my mom slump.

I get so many questions and compliments on Shaylee. I proudly tell everyone I can to go grab a Lily Jade bag as soon as possible. The quality of the real leather and stylish design has been amazing! Shaylee has really been the perfect diaper bag for my three kids. However, now that my youngest has started walking and getting older, I decided it was time to downsize. I don’t need quite a full-size diaper bag anymore. Just something to fit the essentials for the day.

I was not about to let Lily Jade get off my arm that easily. Did you know they offer a huge range of sizes of bags for any stage of life?  As soon as I saw the Danielle in Camel and Gold, I knew it was the perfect size for me now. Don’t get me wrong, Shaylee isn’t going anywhere either. I plan to use the smaller Danielle day to day and Shaylee for longer outings.

The natural tanned leather and gold details are stunning! The signature Jade lining is still a fun pop on the interior that I love. Don’t let the size fool you because this bag can still fit an iPad and iPad mini. The petite handle strap is a fun way to carry this bag when I have free hands with no kids. 🙂 My favorite way to carry Danielle is with the adjustable, detachable strap. I can carry it as a messenger bag across my chest or on my shoulder. Again, Lily Jade has thought of everything when it comes to the design and functionality of their bags.

I have become a bit obsessed with all things Lily Jade. I knew to really step out of my frumpy mom slump I had to upgrade my wallet too. I have been adding more and more blush pink to my home decor. That crossed over to my wallet as well. The Amber wallet was love at first pink sight. 🙂 Blush pink leather? YES, please! Pink and gold is a match made in style heaven. The last time I had a new wallet was six years ago. You can imagine how bad my wallet looked after six years. Every time I pull out this blush pink beauty to pay, people ask for all the details. I have no problem recommending my favorite go-to for bags and accessories, Lily Jade.

 

If you have been on the fence about investing in your purse or diaper bag, don’t even hesitate. I am so glad I decided to upgrade a few of the things I use constantly. Shaylee and Danielle have made me feel put together and ready to conquer anything the day (or kids) throw at me. 🙂 The wallet is the perfect size to fit all of my cards and money (and occasional leftover Cheerios). I got the packing cases because they are perfect to organize everything inside my bag. I keep snacks, changes of clothes, and essentials in each different size. I can grab out any packing case and carry it with the detachable wristlet too. Usually packing cases aren’t that cute. Honestly, these are just as beautiful as the bag I pull them out of. I love that they are clear on one side to see the contents. The gold zipper details are just perfect.

 

Being a mom is hard. Most days, I’m not sure if I even got to brush my hair or look in a mirror. I am pulled in a million different directions. Having a cute bag I can throw on my shoulder and run out the door has made me feel put together. Even if I am a hot mess, most people will be looking at the stylish (super quality) eye candy on my arm, Lily Jade. 🙂

Lily Jade Giveaway

Ok, the day has come. I have graduated from a frumpy boring mom to a cool mom. My kids may still not think so and honestly, I may not be that cool. 😉 That’s okay because at least I look the part with my new Shaylee Diaper Bag from Lily Jade. The good news is that you can be a cool mom too. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to enter the GIVEAWAY.

I don’t know when it happened. Actually, yes I do know. Somewhere between kid number one and three I gave up. You know what I am saying? Of course not because I know you are all too cool and always stay on top of things. But for me, I just got into a frump of survival mode. Also known as a “mombie.” It happens to the best of us. One day I was all trendy and then next day I was cleaning up poop and cheerios. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with that either. It is all a part of the seasons of life we pass through.

Diaper bags became an ugly bottomless pit of stuff. Sometimes you could find what you needed in that mess of a bag and others times not so much. A catch-all for the “just in case” moments of motherhood. Oh yeah, and it was my purse too. So, yes in that baby bag of a disaster there was a wallet, lip gloss (if I was lucky), keys, and few other essentials. Just a big hot mess that I dreaded to take places. In fact, I would usually leave it in the car at all costs. Then I would have to make the dreaded trip back to the car if I needed anything out of that diaper bag. Gosh, it was bad. Realllllll bad!

At a low point, I will admit to dumping everything into a Wal-Mart sack. Ask Mr. Whitelane about that one. Not good people. I needed a diaper bag, purse, and style all in one. What if I told you that existed? It really does and you can graduate with me!

Meet Shaylee. She is this sophisticated and has so many features. There is a removable, washable 12 pocket organizer with two small handles that tuck away when not in use. It is like two bags in one. A diaper bag within a purse. I can simply pull this organizer out with all my baby stuff when I don’t have the kids. Then Shaylee becomes my cute purse.

Let’s talk about all the ways you can wear this bag. It can be worn the shoulder, as a messenger bag, or as a backpack. I have worn this Shaylee in every position and love how versatile it can be with kids. The cute tassel is major eye candy. All the compartments and pockets are perfect for quick access to my go-to needs. The naturally tanned leather is absolutely stunning!

  

This bag is sophisticated and grows with me. So, guess what? When my kids are out of diapers and I just need a purse, this beauty is all mine. Out goes the organizer with diapers and bottles. This versatile bag can transition for each stage of life. I love that it is made out of real leather that can last for years to come. The perfect mom bag for every day.

  

Ok, this Shaylee has saved me from my slump. It is super stylish while being functional to meet all my mommy needs. Hallelejuah! Even if I am in a t-shirt and sweats I still feel put together with my Lily Jade on my arm. It really keeps me organized and looking like I know what I am doing. Hey, even if I am winging life, motherhood, and the day most of the time.

I am glad I have Shaylee on my back making me look cool doing my “mommin.” 🙂 You can win a beautiful bag for yourself too. Enter the giveaway HERE for a $375 Lily Jade Credit. Lily Jade has so many beautiful styles from diaper bags to lifestyle and travel totes. Be sure to go see more at Lily Jade.
