The popularity of striped, bright baby bags still continues to slightly baffle me, just as it did the last time I wrote about one. My questions still stand: doesn’t the pattern make it hard to incorporate into most outfits? Wouldn’t new moms feel a bit more like themselves if they were carrying a bag that looked like something they’d normally carry, rather than a bag that screams OMG DIAPERS?
Having not had a child myself, I suppose I just can’t understand. Despite that, I think that the Kate Spade Jubilee Stripe Stevie Baby Bag may be a happy medium from what I would conceptualize as a stylish bag and the busy paisley patterns that many moms seem to choose.
This bag strikes a good balance – it has a bold, graphic pattern that seems to curry favor with new moms, but it’s not so busy with pattern that it looks inexpensive (which it’s not, at nearly $400). The only thing that gives me pause is the pattern – I imagine that a baby bag could often be used to transport liquids, and I’m not sure that cotton canvas would be the ideal material in a spill situation. Buy through Nordstrom for $395.
