When they recently unveiled their 2016 Hot List, I knew I had to check it out.
With my maternity leave rapidly coming to an end (I start back to work next week!), I’ve been busy sorting through my clothes and accessories, pulling my professional clothes back out (no yoga pants to the office? Dang.) and ditching items that no longer fit or are just no longer practical now that I have Little J (I’m looking at you, Clutch Purse that only holds one tube of lipgloss!).
In any case, all this sorting of clothes and accessories left me wanting for a stylish bag that I could proudly carry around with me during my work day, if needed, but would also be practical for carrying baby’s necessities when we are out and about together!
Enter in the Skip Hop Studio Select Day-to-Night Diaper Satchel. You guys, unless you look inside, or know the Skip Hop brand (as many parents indeed do), you’d never know that this was a diaper bag. I mean that as an absolute compliment to Skip Hop’s designers.
No doubt Skip Hop makes many adorable and “recognizable” diaper bags, however for my dual-purpose, diaper bag-in-disguise scheme, this totally fits the bill.
First and foremost, the bag is beautiful- the exterior is high quality nylon with supple, perforated faux leather accents, and the inside is a rich plum. The nylon makes this bag very easy to clean, and the multiple pockets (including 2 insulated side pockets, which are great for bottles) make it very easy to see where things are and stay organized. As with many of their bags, this one also includes stroller straps and a portable changing mat that tuck neatly inside when not in use.
I’ll be returning to work in style thanks to this chic bag. A “Must-Have Made Better”- You’ve done it again, Skip Hop!
