12 Days of Christmas Series: Oemi Baby Bag


I've always favored a small cross body to throw in my phone and wallet. However; I've noticed overtime I want to bring more and more things with me on my days out of the house: chapstick, pens and paper, snacks for 12 invisible people, my enormous water bottle- you know, the absolute necessities. 

One day, I started looking into larger bags online and found a stunning leather tote on Pinterest. It had interior pockets, a sleek minimalist design, and the color of the leather was exactly my style. Even the price point was amazing for genuine leather.

I had to have it- I clicked on the link to find The Brownstone Oemi Bag I had fallen for; was a BABY BAG! Wait what? (Side note: this discovery came before I ever thought about having children and before I was even married).

What did I miss? I know I didn't have kids, but I always remembered diaper bags being those huge body suitcases with a childish floral quilted fabric. How could I mistake a beautiful tote for that?

I decided to continue looking around to find the perfect tote that suited my needs: I wanted it to be practical, functional, and gorgeous. This search continued for a few years (yes years. In the meantime I've been faithfully clinging to my side-saddle cross body as it falls apart at the seams and supplementing it with reusable shopping bags full of my other things. It's not a pretty or practical sight.)

I couldn't find a leather bag that had all of the room, pockets, or as beautiful of a design: I kept coming back to this bag. Yes, this mom of zero was committed to a baby bag simply because it was adaptable to suit my needs.

Turns out Faye and Vanessa realized that women want more out of a bag that they're carrying. That bumblebee pattern may be adorable for your newborn, but you're the one toting the bag around- shouldn't it reflect your own style?

If that's not enough, these incredible women are as eco-conscious as I am-they use funds from their business to sponsor three elephants in Kenya. How cool is that?!

You can find Oemi Bags at a retailer near you; check out their website to find out where you can buy your own (baby-mom or not!).
