Making Dirty Work Look Good

Blouse: ModCloth | Cardigan: Urban Outfitters | Pants: Forever 21 | Shoes: Steve Madden | Necklace: Oh, Hello Friend | Bracelets: INPink | Bag: Kate Spade

Thanks to my best friend Ting (owner of Neat Weddingsa personalized step-by-step tool that guides you through the complexities of planning your dream wedding. Launching soon!), I can change diapers while being the most stylish mama on the block.  Did you realize I was holding a diaper bag, oh yes, looks can be deceiving.  😉  We’ve only taken Austin out a handful of times and I’m sure all you mamas know, you must be prepared with a bag full of stuff for the “just in case”.  Our diaper bag comes with a gold changing pad (woot!) and it’s always stocked with diapers, wipes, an outfit, swaddle blankets, and formula for baby needs… with plenty of leftover room for my wallet, cell phone, keys, lip gloss, etc.  Thank goodness my little boy hasn’t given me a “show” while wearing something nice, but I’m sure it’s bound to happen in public sometime.  So I guess I better add a change of clothes for myself to that bag as well!

Anything else I’m forgetting to add to my diaper bag?

P.S. I’m still living in Fall since Winter hasn’t decided to make its appearance yet.  And I’m perfectly OK with that! 🙂

    Lovely fall colors in one outfit. Wish i got myself a stylish diaper bag instead of an ugly plain backpack. Two years later i dont miss lugging around those baby items.

    LOVE the kate spade bag! She’s by far my favorite handbag designer!

    From Brooklyn with love,

    That is quite possibly The Cutest Diaper Bag Ever!

  5. February 8, 2012 / 3:03 pm

    I love the way the colors in your outfit look together!!! What a stylin’ mama!! 🙂

  6. February 8, 2012 / 3:07 pm

    You look so great Sandy! If I didn’t know better I would never beleive that you just had a baby 6 weeks ago, what’s your secret!?

    That diaper bag is too cute, I would use it as a regular purse!

    I love the combination of these colors. I’ve been having some serious mustard cardigan envy on my blog feed lately. Looks like I know what I’ll be doing this weekend.

  8. February 8, 2012 / 3:32 pm

    I loooove these colors! I have always been a fan of blue and orange, so this spicy orange and navy blue is just….beautiful!

  9. February 8, 2012 / 3:35 pm

  10. February 8, 2012 / 3:47 pm

  11. February 8, 2012 / 3:51 pm

    What an AWESOME outfit! Looooooove everything & that bag!! So perfect!!! 🙂 I would have never guessed it was a diaper bag!! 🙂

  12. February 8, 2012 / 4:04 pm

    I love the color combination…screams Autumn in a beautiful kind of way. Especially love the navy and polka dot blouse!

  13. February 8, 2012 / 4:11 pm

  16. February 8, 2012 / 4:41 pm

    Great outfit!

    I hate diaper bags… or more so hate carrying my purse + a diaper bag, so I make sure my purse is big enough to fit it all!

  17. February 8, 2012 / 4:44 pm

    Wow, I’m sure its been said, but its worth repeating – I can’t believe how good you are looking so soon post-baby! Gorgeous 🙂

  18. February 8, 2012 / 5:56 pm

    Cute diaper bags for the win! 🙂 I would throw some plastic bags in there – they’re perfect for dirty diapers or clothes!

  19. February 8, 2012 / 6:25 pm

    You look adorable. What a fabulous color combination – so fun with the polka dots, and such a stylish mama with the bag!

  20. February 8, 2012 / 6:37 pm

    Wow! Nice job Ting!! Congrats on your new addition Sandy!

  21. February 8, 2012 / 7:57 pm

    I’m 14 weeks preggers and already in search for an incognito diaper bag. I love this one. I may have to follow your lead with this one.

  22. February 8, 2012 / 8:54 pm

    loving your color combinations here! and hello! you look amazing for just having a babe!!!

  23. February 8, 2012 / 9:08 pm

    Oh my goodness! This is absolutely my favorite mix of colors and prints!! You look fabulous 🙂

  24. February 8, 2012 / 9:39 pm

  25. February 8, 2012 / 10:48 pm

    I love that polka dot shirt. You look great Sandy!

    What a gorgeous gift!! Every new mommy needs a fabulous diaper bag!

  27. February 8, 2012 / 10:50 pm

    You look so chic! I love these colors and patterns on you. I would have no idea that was a baby bag! So cute.

  28. February 8, 2012 / 11:06 pm

    So cute! Those colors look amazing on you (and that diaper bag? really? Maybe we should have kids sooner…) :] xo

  29. February 9, 2012 / 3:11 am

    yellow, navy and orange may be my new favourite combination, what a great idea, you look beautiful!

  30. February 9, 2012 / 5:00 am

    Looking good mummy 🙂 That diaper bag is genius and I think I need one when I have a baby.

  31. February 9, 2012 / 6:40 am

    Adorable! Love the pop of zebra & all of the delicious hues that you’ve combined here + I’m a total sucker for polka dots. So pretty, always!! xo veronika

  32. February 9, 2012 / 9:16 am

    great outfit! i super love that blouse.

  33. February 9, 2012 / 9:38 am

    I am LOVING those F21 pants!!!!!! You always look so stylish Sandy!!

  34. February 9, 2012 / 9:44 am

    ahh, thanks for the love! glad you like bag!! 😀 you look super cute with it, love the outfit! 😀


  35. February 9, 2012 / 10:37 am

    I love the color mixing and your bag! 🙂

  36. February 9, 2012 / 10:40 am

    adding an extra baby clothes is a great idea. I usually add a toy or sophie to keep Kaylee busy in the car or when she’s cranky. Months down the road you’ll definitely add more such as solid food and finger food! 😀

  37. February 9, 2012 / 11:23 am

    wowee~ you look soooo good! can’t believe you just had a baby!!!

  38. February 9, 2012 / 12:56 pm

    Cutest mommy ever. Seriously, If I saw you in Target, I’d have to come up to you and tell you how adorable I think you are. And if I had kids, I’d probably hate you for being so precious…with a baby. Love it!

  39. February 9, 2012 / 1:52 pm

    I had ZERO idea that was a diaper bag

  40. February 9, 2012 / 2:58 pm

    you look absolutely wonderful, sandy 🙂 xoxo

  41. February 9, 2012 / 3:25 pm

    I know what you mean about living in fall! I bought cute sweaters for winter, and have barely worn them – a few I haven’t worn at all yet!

  42. February 9, 2012 / 4:21 pm

    what an awesome look, color palette on you!

  43. February 9, 2012 / 8:13 pm

    What a posh diaper bag Sandy, I love it! I’m also really loving this fun color combination and cute polka dot print. I want to steal this one!

  44. February 9, 2012 / 9:14 pm

    i heart your outfit! the colors work so well together.

  45. February 10, 2012 / 5:35 am

    Love your stylish diaper bag. Am in the market to find one of my very own. I can’t bear to think of carrying a “regular” diaper bag!
