For the love of Lily Jade

It’s no secret that I’ve had a huge crush on Lily Jade since they launched their very first line of diaper bags almost 2 years ago. Then my crush grew exponentially when I had the opportunity to speak at a conference this year alongside Meggan + Landon, creators of Lily Jade. I love them so much that, on more than on occasion, I’ve wished we were neighbors. They are the real deal friends!

While I might not have babies anymore *cue the tears,* I do find myself in need of a great bag that offers this type-a working mama the luxury of organizing all the things I need to carry with me. Between school, after school activities and working “on-the-go” the new Meggan bag meets all of my needs. I can fit my laptop, planner, snacks and my wallet in there and still have pockets for small toys, pens, lipsticks, etc. Plus… this beautiful tote has three great pockets on the outside of the bag where I can store my car keys and phone.

Let’s take a moment and share some of my favorite features of this new Lily Jade bag. To begin with, gold hardware… can we say all the heart eyes? I mean, I might’ve swooned out loud when my bag arrived and I saw all the beautiful gold hardware. This bag also has the option to wear it as a shoulder bag, a cross body bag, or my favorite, a backpack!

When I think about my Meggan bag, I feel it’s an extension of who I am as a Mom. It’s big, beautiful, functional, has plenty of places to keep me organized and makes me feel confident wherever I go. To show you just how much fun this bag is, I teamed with my amazing photographer Miranda and her talented husband to create a short video that shows you just how much you need a Lily Jade in your life too. A very special thank you to Lucas for helping Miranda and I create this video that captures not only Lily Jade, but our friendship, which I love so much, as well.

Special thanks to Petals + Pop Shop for letting us spend time with you in your beautiful space today.

“When I (Meggan) set out with my adventuresome husband, Landon, to create Lily Jade, we had someone in mind. She’s classy, but not pompous, appreciates design, textures, and little things that say “I care”. And, she likes things that make sense, that can serve more than one purpose. The Lily Jade line was created to keep you organized, serve you at work or at play, and appeal to your senses as well as your sensibilities. With the included , removable/washable Baby Bag Organizer, one Lily Jade bag covers the role of two or three “regular” bags.”
