Confession- I have a small "bag" addiction. Before kids, it was purses. For the past 5.5 years, it's been diaper bags. I'm not alone. Pretty much every mom I know enjoys toting her 100 most essential items around in a small suitcase. Why? I don't know *get off my back about it*. Yes, husband, you did just discover a bag of bags in my closet. Ahem.
Moving on, when a rep from Lina Jake contacted me about reviewing one of their diaper bags, I was a wee bit excited. My current diaper bag needed to be retired anyway. It served me well for about the last year with three kids and I was ready for a change!
Honestly, the Lina bag is probably one of the most "fancy" diaper bags I've owned. I would describe my personal style as laid-back and beachy for sure. I do love bright colors though, and this bag in purple is on point. After browsing online, I was a little concerned that the bag would be shiny.. it was a little hard to tell from the pictures how the bag would actually feel. I was really glad when I opened the box and saw that it as a nice canvas and not shiny at all. It feels super durable and well-made. I like that it has the look of a purse, but the size of a diaper bag. It features handles and also an adjustable strap for hanging on your stroller or even carrying crossbody, which I like to do sometimes to free up both hands.
Other than the actual style of the bag, the most important feature is definitely size, given that I have three kids. Luckily I only have one in diapers, but I still need plenty of other kid stuff with me at all times. As you can see, I was able to pack this bag full and still have room to spare. Everything stayed in it's place with the help of inside pockets. I easily fit: diapers, wipes, a changing pad, my nikon camera, wallet, snacks, and sunscreen, along with a few other personal items. My phone was in one of the outer side pockets and Maisy's sippy was in the other.
