Austin & Fowler Diaper Bag

 

I’ve been seriously crushin’ on the Austin & Fowler Diaper Bags for a while. I was drawn to them because they don’t look like your typical diaper bag and are super stylish! Since I don’t carry around a purse these days, my diaper bag is somewhat of an accessory. I want it to look good yet still be functional for life with two kids. The Austin and Fowler bags are just that and here is why I love them! #getreadytofallinlove

Style: The bag is classy and will never go out of style. The design is sophisticated (think stripes and beautiful prints, not elephants and teddy bears). I don’t feel like I am carrying around a diaper bag, and anyone that sees me carrying around this beauty wouldn’t think it’s meant to hold diapers and sippy cups. It’s BEAUTIFUL and you feel good carrying the bag! The bags are actually designed by a Mom and you can tell. It’s thoughtfully designed and perfect for us Mom’s on the go!

Detail: This detail is bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S! I love me some Gwen Stefani and you guys know I throw in some lyrics any chance I get… HA! Ok, back on track.  The bags have beautiful leather accents including leather bottoms with luggage feet making it durable. The leather pulls on the zippers of the removable pouches are embossed and labeled “diapers & wipes” “clothes & extras”, etc. The pulls are also removable so you can switch up the pouches to what works best for you… Hello!! How brilliant is that!?! I can’t. It’s little things like this that make me swoon.

Comfort: It’s comfortable to carry! The top handle straps are adjustable so you can get just the right fit and the messenger strap allows you to carry this so many ways! I always appreciate longer straps when it comes to a Diaper Bag and the option to wear is cross-body. When I’m out with the kids, I need to have both hands free because they are usually running in opposite directions. Not everyone loves a backpack style bag, so this is the perfection option. Another plus is that it’s not heavy… I was expecting the bag to be heavy once it’s full but somehow it’s light-weight. Not sure what kind of sorcery is going on here but I’m digging it.

 

Durable: Because of the leather bottom and luggage feet, this bag is going to LAST YOU!!! I read about people complaining of their diaper bag falling apart after a few short months and this is not going to happen with the Austin & Fowler bags. This will work as your diaper bag and easily transition to your travel bag or tote when you are past the diaper bag stage. This is an investment piece that will stand the test of time so make sure to take care of it. This is not your average diaper bag, folks!

Functional: You all know how much I LOVE staying organized. The interior of the bag has plenty of pockets and included removable pouches that help you stay as organized as you want! You have a place to put diapers, wipes, clothing, snacks, toys, etc. There is no guessing or digging through your bottomless pit of a bag to find what you needs. It’s all there in your pouches! The interior and pouches are in a bright color so everything is easy to find if you decide to forego the use of the pouches. I have the Blake bag with Fuchsia lining and it’s STUNNING!!!! In addition to the bottle pockets on the inside, the bag also features a zippered pock on the outside that is for all of your Mommy needs. I keep my wallet, cell phone, sunglasses, keys, lip gloss, etc. in the outside pocket for easy access to all of my goodies. I love that it’s separate from the kids necessities and easy to get to. Simply perfect!

I could go on and on about these bags. I honestly could! I fell in love with them when I first saw their photos on Instagram and then fell hardcore when the Blake arrived on my doorstep. It felt and looked luxurious but still met all of my needs as a Mom. I’d be lying if I said I couldn’t wait until the kids are completely out of diapers and the sippy cup stage because I am ready for the bag to be all MINE. This would make the perfect work tote or weekender and adds a touch of style to my everyday Mom uniform. A.K.A leggings, t-shirt, messy bun. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Mom uniform, but my Austin & Fowler bag makes me feel a little more put together when I leave the house! I take all the extra help I can get. #messyhairdontcare

Thanks, Jackie.

My son recently realized that Me, my Husband, Grandparents, etc have real names besides Mom, Dad, etc. His mind was blown. He was in the car with my Husband and asked “Dad, what’s your name?” He told him it was Justin. Then he asked what My name was, what Grandma’s name was, and so on and so forth. They got home from their trip to Walgreens and he says to me “Hi Jackie, I’m back from Walgreens!’.

Hold the phone.  What did you just call me!? I’m not ok with is.

This is a photo of Brody doing what he loves… “fixing” things. The conversation went as follows….
