Shopping | Diaper bag dilemma

diaperbag1

Never in a million years I thought it would be so hard to find a good looking diaper bag. Did I say hard? Let me rephrase that, it is in fact impossible to find a good looking diaper bag. Seriously, they don’t excist! If you are on the search for one, just like me, I feel for you. All there is to find are backpacks, ugly printed/weird fabric messenger bags, unisex bags (when is a bag ever suitable for men ánd women?).

Sorry for my rant, but after several weeks of searching there is nothing more to it. The only ones I did liked a tiny bit were over 350 dollars. And who’s going to spend money like that on a diaper bag when you can buy an entire –ok half– wardrobe for your baby for that amount? Not me.

So after I was done looking at green/purple/yellow printed bags I decided the diaper bag just wasn’t for me. I started looking at normal bags that would easily function as a diaper bag. I mean, all you need is a decent sized, gorgeous bag with multiple pockets inside. An easy to clean lining is also a plus, otherwise you will be crying when a bottle of milk/juice/whatever explodes in your bag.

Not all of the above are totally approved as diaper bags, but that doesn’t matter. I like them, and I wouldn’t mind walking around with one of them. My eye goes out to the dust pink one from JCrew.

What do you think? Have you ever bought a diaper bag or are you just as lost as I am?

#BestSelfieEver | Pregnant

First of all; sorry for my uber-absence the past couple months! Things have been quite busy and as you can see I have some AWESOME news to share! You saw that right: I’m pregnant!! 4,5 months in these pictures to be exact! I’ve been so excited to share this news!
At the moment I’m 5,5 months, so my bump is a bit more showing than in the pictures shown above. I’m finally passed the is-she-pregnant-or-just-fat-stage and I love it. Getting dresses with a bump takes so much longer than without one and now it’s finally ‘out-there’ it’s getting easier by the day actually.

It took me quite some time to get used to having a bump, instead of having a toned stomach due to some serious Bootcamp action. In my mind people were staring at my ‘fat belly’ and all I wanted to say is; ‘I don’t usually look like this!’. I know this may sound ridiculous, but it’s the truth. Now that I have finally passed that stage, I’m much more comfortable with my bump and dressing around it.

I haven’t started wearing any maternity clothing though, except for the trousers in these pictures. They are a-ma-zing! I wish all skinny jeans were made this way.

I can’t wait to start posting some outfit photos again now that the word is out, so keep a close eye on the blog!
