What’s In My Bag

What Sawyer’s wearing:
Hat // Pants // Mocs


Purse c/o Petunia Pickle Bottom
Sashay Satchel in Marigold Medallions 

This purse, well…it has my heart.
There’s nothing quite like carrying around a purse that has ALL the functionality and convenience of a diaper bag, but is also completely fashion-forward. I mean, I still plan on sporting this purse long after I retire diapers and binkies. And in case you were wondering, here are the items you can ALWAYS find in my bag. Note: You can also usually find gum wrappers, loose change and crinkled receipts–but this purse is just too fabulous for me to allow that to happen.


1. Wallet // Target
2. Sun Glasses // TOMS
3. Lip Gloss and Lipstick // Mary Kay
4. Gum // Orbit Bubblegum (I like to blow bubbles)
5. Notepad and tree bark pencil // gift from this girl
6. Horton Rattle // gift
7. Changing Pad // PPB, included with purse
8. Wipes Case // PPB, included with purse
9. Diaper Case // Aubrey Plays
10. Teether // Target
11. Bottle
12. Sophie the Giraffe // Amazon
13. Extra Outfit for Sawyer // Petunia Romper

My favorite part about the Petunia Sashay Satchel is that it has two separate large compartments–one for baby stuff (bottles, diapers, wipes, etc), and one for Momma stuff (wallet, keys, makeup, etc). This makes it so much easier to find what you need when you reach in for a quick grab.


This is the front compartment for Momma stuff: wallet, notepad, pencil (no pen to prevent ink spills), gum, sunglasses. This compartment has a magnetic closure so it doesn’t flap open.


And this is the middle compartment where I keep Sawyers goodies: bottle, wipes, changing pad, toys, spare outfit, binkie.


This last compartment is the surprise bonus, the icing on the cake.  Hidden in here are the straps to convert this bad boy into a back pack for those hectic momma moments when you need to be hands free.


And for me, who can NEVER find my keys–this hook ensures I never have this problem again.

Next on my Petunia wish list:
This laptop case.
This powder room case
This stunning clutch.
This wallet.
And this weekender bag.

    Ok, all of this looks like it’s straight from a magazine ad. I love the pictures & love your coat. I too am obsessed with PPB. I wanted a diaper bag that could be used long after the baby days & I found that out with PPB. The touring tote is my favorite, but you’re twisting my arm about getting the sashay satchel!

    The sashay satchel is a diaper bag. Petunia Pickle Bottom is introducing a handbag line named Petunia this spring.

    Ooh, I have been dying for one of these bags. I just can’t convince myself to spend that much on a diaper bag/ purse, but this is seriously tempting me.

    I have the Sashay Satchel and the Touring Tote. While I love them both, the Sashay Satchel is definitely my favorite. They must have changed them slightly since I got mine about 18 months ago (ahh, my daughter is 18 months old! time flies). On mine, the back pocket, where the straps are stored, is actually two separate pockets – one for each strap. It’s minimally annoying, as the larger pocket would allow for more storage of things.

    I have a Sashay Satchel (the black embossed one) and I LOVE it. Yours is very pretty. I love that it doesn’t scream diaper bag, but has all the storage you need.

    you, the baby, and the bag are all adorable! My twins are almost 13 and I carried an LLBean backpack…diaper bags certainly have changed over the years! I’ve never commented before but I love following your blog. Your honesty is refreshing and I admire how you don’t “candy coat” the struggles of being a mother to young children. I think I tried to hard to be superwoman and was too hard on myself. You always seem to accentuate the positive, even when posting about sick babies. Thank you for sharing!

    LOVE! Okay, I admit it, after seeing this I purchased my first PPB bag. To be fair, I have had at least 2 friends recommend it to me, but this was what pushed me to it. SO cute! Also, I have to ask where you got that awesome mustache key fob. Big fan of your blog!

    I am smitten with your jacket, seriously! I was waiting to see what went on sale after winter and I am not finding anything, so I will be picking one up at the beginning of the season this year! I remember carrying Sophie around. My youngest is 18 months and I just switched him to a back pack so I could have a purse again.

    I just found your blog through PPB’s Pinterest. Since then I’ve been reading all of your entries 🙂 You and your kids are adorable! And I was lusting after this bag in the Blooming Begonias print, but now I HAVE to have it!!! I have a 13 month old and I love my timi & leslie but sometimes I need a backpack.

    Ok I had been trying for ages to choose between the Sashays and then I found these pics! Thanks so much for posting them! I am in Australia and this brand is hard to come by here. I own a couple of them already and thanks to the shots on your blog, I have just ordered the very same style from a department store in the US! Can’t wait until it arrives so that my new little girl (and 6th baby) can get about with Mum in style!
