The “Not-So-Obvious” Baby Bag

There were two things I vowed not to buy when I became pregnant with baby H. One, maternity clothes. Two, a baby/diaper bag (call me a rebel, right?) I wasn’t sure what it was about baby bags that didn’t appeal to me. Even the ones that were designed by top designers, I just didn’t want to get one. Perhaps, I wanted a bag that could still function as my everyday bag as baby H gets older. A bag I could still take out to lunch with friends, to meetings and events, to walks at the park, without thinking, oh, I’m carrying a baby bag.

So up to this day, I still rather look for bags that are really roomy and would serve a similar purpose. I might have given up on some compartment parts (which can be easily replaced by these lovely pouches, in my opinion), but there are times in my life where style overrides function.  So here they are, my picks of the “Not-So-Obvious” baby bag:

1. Clare Vivier, Messenger In Red (also comes in black.) 

2. Baggu, Duck Bag in Sailor Stripes (love this one in coral too.)

3. Fleabags, Rugby Salt Bag in Cognac (or the original Flea in Woodland).

4. Yadouga, Margot Tote  

5. Forever 21, Center Shoulder Bag 

6. Gap, Colorblock Tote (I can use one in this color too.)
