I never thought I’d say this but since becoming a mom my fashion requirements have changed somewhat. I find it difficult to put my needs first and typically gravitate toward practical rather than fashionable. Hence all my cute handbags and purse are packed away in the closet longing to be used while I’ve resolved to use the diaper bag as my purse. And while it’s practical to use one bag to carry all my necessities a standard black diaper bag is hardly stylish.
I finally decided it was time changing things up and hang up my boring diaper bag for good.. or at least until the next baby arrives. Since Jude is no longer a bity baby he doesn’t require as much stuff, but I still need space to carry all of his stuff and mine so a large bag, which just so happy to be hip right now, is in order. After browsing the all the wonderful Namaste bags and weighing the benefits of each I settled on the Monroe. To be honest it wasn’t my first choice but after comparing all the bags I realized as trendy as I’d like to be I’m more of a simple kind of gal. I did spice things up a bit with the peacock color. After using this bag for a few days I’m very happy with my decision. It is a large bag but no larger than my diaper bag. I really like the length of the straps which make it easy for wearing over your shoulder. There are three main compartments so I can separate mine stuff from Judes. (no one wants cookie crumbs on their wallet. Now I feel a little more like a hip mom.
