Despite my best efforts, I’m not on the cutting edge of fashion. I try to put my best shoed forward every day, but for me one of the easiest ways to stay current and look pulled together is with accessories. From shoes to jewelry to, yes, my diaper bag, accessories are an easy way to add flair and interest to an otherwise boring outfit. What’s more, the fact is a great diaper bag makes it easier for me to tote around baby, child and mama must haves and can be fashionable and chic, too. Case in point? The JJ Cole Collection Caprice Diaper Bag.

Functional Style on the Go
JJ Cole Collections has a great range of diaper bags, but this is my first time using one on a daily basis. I was content with the diaper bag I was using before, so I was surprised at how much I like the Caprice Diaper Bag from the moment I moved all of my stuff into it. First, the diaper bag is lightweight. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: diaper bags must be lightweight! They get loaded down with stuff so the last thing you need is a bag that weighs 5 pounds before you even put anything in it. The Caprice weighs only 2.2 pounds and is noticeably lighter than the bag I was using prior to it.
The Caprice has a total of ten pockets inside and out. But, what’s almost more important is that the pockets are large and easy to access. There are four large pockets, perfect for diapers, wipes and other large things you want quick access to. I use the zippered pockets on the outside for my things I use most often, like my cell phone, lip gloss and hand lotion. But, my very favorite pockets are the two on either end of the bag that are lined for bottles. They are HUGE, like big enough to hold fat sippy cups.
The bag really works for you, too, with your choice of carry option. I love having the ability to attach the Caprice to stroller handles with the stroller straps.
And, of course, I really like the way the Caprice Bag looks. From the first time I carried it out of the house, I’ve received compliments. All of the patterns, including the Silver Drop I’m carrying, strike a the perfect balance between trendy and classic. They add a fun pop to your everyday wardrobe but won’t be outdated in a few months.
To Buy or Not to Buy
To Buy… I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect to like the Caprice Diaper Bag as much as I do. I’m really impressed with the quality and functionality. And, let’s not forget the price! It’s extremely affordable and, honestly, offers more functionality than diaper bags I’ve paid three times as much for.
Or Not to Buy… For something like a diaper bag that you’ll use every day, I really think you should LOVE the pattern. So if you don’t favor one of the four options, don’t invest in it. But, definitely take a peek at the other options from JJ Cole.
