Can you believe we’re really in 2021?! I’m gonna be honest…over the summer I thought 2020 would never end! I remember going through the SLOW days of quarantine, homeschooling my kiddos and just dreaming of the day 2020 would be over. This year had it’s challenges for sure (that’s a post for another day) but there was also a lot of good, lessons learned and memories to last a lifetime!
One of my goals for 2020…heck this was a goal of 2019 that never happened… was to get my website/blog up and running! This was a task that was just tooooo much for me to wrap my head around. A beast of a project that I was lost with from the start! But with help and daily encouragement from some dear friends, it’s FINALLY LIVE and I’m so proud!
I thought it would be fun to recap my favorite/most grabbed for bags of 2020 since most of you know me for my YouTube handbag/diaper bag reviews. So let’s do it! Here are my favs…in no particular order…
This is one of all time favorite bags from Lily Jade! I grab for this bag all the time! The Caroline has TONS of pockets, multiple ways to carry and made out of sturdy vegan leather. It comes in a variety of colors but my personal favorite is camel! If you’re considering giving this one a try, don’t forget to add a set of Lily Jade’s packing cases…you’ll love them! You can shop this bag HERE.
2. MZ Wallace Crosby City Bag
I found myself grabbing for this bag when I need to carry my laptop. I have a 13 inch Macbook Pro and it fits securely inside the padded laptop sleeve. If you have a laptop anything larger then 13 inch…I would opt for the Crosby traveler bag which is the same in style/function but a tad larger. This bag is made of a soft quilted fabric, comes with multiple carry straps and available in a few different colors. You can shop this bag HERE.
MZ Wallace Small Max in Mushroom
I wanted to leave this review/packing video here as well since I touched on it this week. I’m pretty much obsessed with EVERYTHING in the MZ Wallace Metro Collection. You can shop this bag HERE.
3. Mina Baie Fanny/Crossbody Bag
This is the perfect grab and go bag! I love the size! This is a great bag to throw into larger totes. I’ll often put my main essentials in here and then throw it into a large tote/backpack that holds the kids stuff. I also love that I can wear it around my waist or easily go crossbody. It’s sooo much better then your traditional fanny pack! You can shop this bag HERE.
4. Dagne Dover Medium Dakota Backpack
I actually sold this exact backpack thinking I wasn’t going to use it much and then re-purchased it! So you know it’s a good one when that happens. The Dakota comes in three sizes…small , medium, large. The medium is by far my favorite size…even for travel days!! I think it’s the perfect size and holds everything I need. The gray neoprene material is my favorite from Dagne Dover…I own a lot in this color and love it on every piece! You can shop this backpack over on my shop favs tab HERE for 10% off!
Dagne Dover SMALL Landon
I mentioned this bag in the video as well to show the heather grey color on another style. Heres the review/packing video if you’re curious how this one packs up! You can shop this bag HERE.
5. Ju-Ju-Be Be Zealous
I own a few different prints in the be zealous backpack! This Disney collaboration is one of the cutest for sure! This is such a great backpack to use as a theme park bag, diaper bag, travel bag and even just an everyday bag. I’ve used this style a ton! I have 2-3 other packing videos on this one over on my YouTube channel if you need additional ways to pack it up! You can shop this backpack linked HERE.
