Bubbles is very into “fashion”.  She loves going shopping with me to help pick out her own clothes, and she will frequently return from her room wearing something completely different than what she wore going in.

While my daily ‘uniform’ these days mostly consists of jeans and a t-shirt, I do still love fashion.  When I worked in a corporate office, I loved picking out suits and cute shoes, and finding the perfect accessories.

Before having a baby, I had a purse that was just that: a purse. It had grown-up purse things in it, like keys, a wallet, my phone, gum, a brush, makeup, and other random things. After baby, though, I didn’t have a purse, I had a diaper bag and it was filled with much, much different stuff.

My sister-in-law Abby gave birth to my nephew Jayce a week ago, and let me tell you – she looks great!  Way better than I remember looking – and feeling – after giving birth, myself.  It took quite awhile after Bubbles was born until I felt like wearing anything other than yoga pants and a t-shirt.

This techie mom has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All drooling over the bag is my own.

While I don’t consider myself a real fashionista (maybe when my days include less crawling under bushes for lost golf balls or baseballs and more afternoon massages?) I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for shoes and bags (well, and earrings).  And while my bags (and shoes) are more function than flair these days, I do like them to be at least somewhat stylish.

Function & Fashion for the Techie Mom - Modal Concept Tote Bag

As a blogger and all-around techie mom, when I leave the house my devices usually leave with me.  My phone and a car charger are the bare minimum and depending on where I’m headed I may even have my laptop with me.  But I still need space for juice boxes, coloring books, and fruit snacks, too.
