Babyriffic Trendy Mommy Must Haves and a Swagalicious Giveaway!

Congrats to our winner Suzie L.

Pre-marriage and subsequent baby in the carriage, I considered myself tragically hip — and, yes, maybe somewhat enslaved to trendy footwear. In fact, as a New York City single twenty-something, I even went so far as to fork over one entire paycheck for a pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos. Fortunately for both my pocketbook and husband, I am currently comfortably ensconced in my role as sensible mommy and my days of flagrant spending on trendy must-haves are behind me.

Babyriffic Trendy Mommy Must Haves and a Swagalicious Giveaway!

But I know there are many moms who, like me, are not quite ready to sport “mom jeans” and oversized sweatshirts. Moms who still long to be — within budget and reason — just a bit trendy and even get their little babies and kids decked out in fabulous threads and gear. I know I may sound superficial, but sometimes funky diaper bags and jewelry, and oh so decadent coffee/espresso/latte machines may be just the thing that can reinvigorate a mom who feels kind of like she’s lost her zing since having kids and restore that mischievous twinkle in her eye. So if you’re an urban, diaper-bag-toting mama in need of a little bling, keep reading for  Babyriffic Trendy Mommy Must Haves that will make you feel “divalicious”  and a Swagalicious Giveaway!

The SKIP HOP Duo Luxe French Stripe diaper bags boast all of the features of the classic Duo, Skip Hop’s original diaper bag, including a multitude of pockets to keep everything organized, a changing pad for on-the-go convenience as well as Skip Hop’s patented Shuttle Clips.

    I think a trendy mom is someone who not only makes sure her baby is dressed cute, but also does the same :)

  2. Deirdre says

    I love to buy my son t-shirts with current trendy sayings and quotes. He always looks adorable in them, especially when the shirt is paired with some distressed denim jeans. Thanks for the chance to win.

  3. brynne says

    I’m a trendy mom because I will never wear “mom” jeans. I’ll stick with my skinnies, thankyouverymuch!

  4. abby caraway says

    i try to stay with current trends by buying clothes that look nice even though i will probably outgrow them in a couple of weeks.

  5. Tannis W says

    Ok, so I wouldn’t go as far to say in a trendy mom… but, I am a wannabe trendy mom! I am slightly fashion challenged, so I ask my sis often if an outfit works of is a never wear it again outfit! I think the cute bag and accessories would definitely put me a step in the right direction! :)

  6. Nicki Joseph says

    I love this diaper bag!
    I think being a trendy mom means staying “in the know” when it comes to fashion, tecnology, etc.

  7. Heather L. Davidson says

    I will let you know better in 5 weeks why I am a trending mom. I have tried to stay close to what I typically wear with the maternity clothes I choose.

  8. Terri Moore says

    I’m a wanna be trendy grandma to a trendy Mom (my daughter), who is expecting her second this summer. I am so excited!
