This is Kate, a stunning new diaper/baby bag from the ever fabulous folks at timi & leslie. If you're looking for high style, great accessories and stellar organization, you've met your match with timi & leslie bags (you'd never know they're diaper bags from the outside). I've been carrying Kate in cobalt/saddle for the past few weeks, and have never received this many compliments on ANY bag. I will be carrying this bag long after diapers! Here is my full & honest review on this gem:
Overview: Kate (in cobalt/saddle) is my new favorite in an always awesome lineup of diapers bags from timi & leslie. I don't think a photo could possibly do this blue justice! Like all timi & leslie bags, Kate offers style with terrific function and organization. If you're like me and loose anything that's not attached to you, you'll appreciate the details and accessories the bag offers; everything from a place to keep baby's bottle to a hook for your keys. I've found the bag to be extremely spacious without being too cumbersome. I've been carrying this bag everyday, and find it comfortable to carry. I find myself mostly wearing this cross-body though I appreciate the versatility with the carrying options. I only use one bag as my day to day bag, whether the kids are with me or not. So my baby bag/mom bag has to match my style but also be organized and equipped to carry everything from diapers to snacks and toys etc..(I carry a lot of stuff) and for that, Kate is a great fit! (See my post from Wednesday for a glimpse at whats in my bag)!
Design/Durability & Cleaning: This bag is made from (PVC free) vegan faux leather with custom hardware accents in a brass finish. (As a side note, my husband was convinced this bag was real leather...I had to pull up the website to prove otherwise :-) ). I've found it to very forgiving, durable, and easy wipe clean. I've only had the bag a few weeks, but I've used it everyday and everywhere including our recent trip to Florida. Its seen chorine, sand, lots of sticky fingers, and spills, and its held up really well. The interior is a light colored water resistant lining that's pretty easy to wipe down as well. Mine has seen a few spills and stains already and I've been able to clean it up nicely.
Awesome Accessories: timi & leslie bags are stylish on the outside, but what really wins me over is the well though out, organized interior and fabulous accessories! The Kate bag has 3 exterior pockets and 6 interior pockets, an attached key fab inside and so many great accessories. The following all come with the Kate bag:
What I love:
The downside/ areas of Improvement: Honestly, there isn't much I don't like about this bag, so this section will be short! This bag keeps me organized, fashionable, and fits all of my stuff (which is not a small feat).
Recap/Recommendation: Its pretty clear I'm a timi & leslie fan! I find the bags to be fashionable, functional, well made and you without a doubt get what you pay. Kate is no exception and is in fact one of my favorites. If you are someone like me that carries only one bag for everything (and everyone) or if you love a diaper bag that is stylish and doesn't look like a diaper bag, than this bag is a great option for you. If you are someone that carries a separate purse and diaper bag, and or your bag gets passed from day-care or nanny and back again and you really don't ultimately care what it looks like, than its probably not worth the $. I do not pack light, and this bag can sufficiently carry all I need on a daily basis for myself and my two toddlers. If I had twins or two in diapers however, I might opt for a slightly bigger style. Also, while I love Kate, you might want a different look, so be sure to Visit timi & leslie online for a look at all their styles!
