Lily Jade // Featuring The Anna Backpack
Spring time has kept us on our toes with the weather changing, flowers blooming and it has brought more activities outside. We even recently enjoyed a day trip to the Huntington Library and have been soaking in everything Spring has to offer. When we are on the go, I am always looking for ways to keep our “stuff” light, simple and easy! Lily Jade recently came out with their new Anna Backpack and it has been a GAME CHANGER! It is what I have been taking everywhere with me lately. With a six month old baby, it has made my days out and about so easy and I am loving everything about this new bag! It is no surprise that the Anna Backpack is just as beautiful and stylish as the other bags Lily Jade has to offer. You really can’t even tell it’s a diaper bag and they really know the way to a mama’s heart with how they have designed this one!
I have the medium size Anna Backpack and since the camel and gold color is one of my favorites from Lily Jade, I decided to go with that! Nothing beats the quality of the leather that Lily Jade uses! There are always unique variances in the leather on my bags and they use premium grade leathers made in New York. No two bags are the same because Lily Jade gives you a tumbled full grain leather to bring out its texture rather than sand and stamp a pattern on lower grade leather. This is different than the artificial patterns stamped on most high end handbags! How amazing is that?
Let me tell you that every single bag from Lily Jade never disappoints. I can flood you with praises of this company who really pays attention to what’s important in a product! I can confidently say that for the cost that goes into making a Lily Jade bag, they truly deliver far more value at a price that is lower than it should be. When investing in a Lily Jade bag, you know you are getting way more value for every dollar since they truly bring quality first!
I have been using my Lily Jade bags for a while now and they still look brand new, I know I’ve said it before but these bags really are built to last! They really pay attention to every single detail and that is definitely something I will stand behind!
Lily Jade even tucks in the leather on their handles, straps, and pocket edges so that you don't have edge paint that will wear and crack over time. They reinforce stitching at critical points so each bag will last through the baby years, work, out for a date night and for years to come! The tassels are even double sided leather instead of having one raw unfinished side. The beads they use are a natural Aventurine stone that are individually crafted and selected specifically for their tassels. Even the interior pockets are trimmed in the same fine leather as the shell of the bag. There is never any skimping when it comes to this brand and that is huge in my book!
The medium size is just perfect, it fits every single thing I need in all of the pockets and compartments and then some but at the same time doesn’t feel too large or bulky! One of the best features of this backpack are the side pockets for water bottles or drinks etc. It has come in handy in so many ways and I love it!
This bag also has one exterior zipper in the front, one exterior magnetic pouch in the back, two zipper compartments (one in the front and one in the back), one interior zipper pocket in the front compartment. two interior slip pockets in the front compartment and one interior slip pocket in the back compartment. This backpack can be used for so many things and has an amazing amount of storage and organization.
The Anna Backpack also has their signature plush liner which is not like any liner, it isn’t thin and doesn’t feel cheap, it’s made of quality! If I have never mentioned the stitching on these bags before, then I need to! The details of the stitching that make up the bag are so beautiful and designed to add complexity and dimension, which takes significant time and skill to craft an amazing bag like this! This backpack also comes with an extra strap for a crossbody carry option as well! There are so many features about this bag that I am in love with!
I have already reached for my Anna Backpack every day since I got it and I am so excited to continue using it for all the fun Spring activities we have planned coming up! It truly is the perfect Spring addition!
