Being that I'm out with my daughter a lot, I wanted to find a diaper bag that I wouldn't mind carrying around everywhere. I also don't use the diaper bag as a purse, which I know some moms do. I prefer to carry my own bag so that usually means I'm carrying around two bags and a baby. I didn't like the traditional diaper bags. I found that they were too bulky and just didn't find any that fit my style. I also felt like they all came with too many pockets and doodads that I didn't need/want. I just wanted a simple tote. I was carrying my LV Neverfull for awhile but then it made me nervous as I would leave the diaper bag in the car sometimes and I didn't want somebody to think that I left my purse in there and they would break into my car for it. So I went looking for a less obvious but still pretty bag when Adora reached out and asked me if I wanted to try out one of their bags. I immediately said yes as I loved the look of the sleek black tote and that it had nice long handles so that you could wear it on your shoulders pretty easily.
The shoulder straps actually stay on your shoulders and it's a nice sturdy bag that keeps the structure. It's a big bag but not overwhelmingly big. Nobody looks at it and thinks it's a diaper bag so they are always surprised when I tell them that's what I use it as. Of course it's a tote so you can use it as anything you want and I think it would be a great travel bag or work bag as well. You could easily fit a laptop and so much more in there.
As you can see my little one was running around in the background of my photos so I couldn't get too many photos as my husband and I were trying to keep an eye on her but I had a chance to sneak a few in with her :) This little sweetheart is my world - she just makes me so happy!
A big thank you to Adora for sending me the bag. Even if they didn't send it to me I still would have bought it myself, I really do love it! Oh and the best part? My husband is happy with it too! He often has to carry the bag when I have my hands full with her and he has never once complained about having to carry this bag. I've gotten a few questions about what I carry as my diaper bag so I hope this helps and I'll cover what I carry inside the diaper bag on another post!
