Babies are amazing, there’s no doubt about it. But all the “essentials” required to leave the house with baby? Not so much.
But here’s a tip from our senior editor, Justine, who is also mom to an adorable 7-month-old baby girl: try a Kipling bag. Now we know you probably remember Kipling from back in the day with those cute dangling monkeys. Yes, we’re talking the same brand. Except they don’t just do backpacks–they have great bags for grown-ups, too.
Justine loves this Noelle Tote in Toasty Gold ($109) because not only the perfect size, but it also has tons of pockets–and it’s metallic! Who knew a diaper bag could be so glam? She uses it to stash makeup, a water bottle, her phone, and gum for herself. For her daughter, there’s a bottle, a binkie, pacifier wipes and a Tide stain pen. (Umm, what isn’t in her bag??)
Love Kipling’s Noelle bag, too? Get one for yourself now.
