I love this bag!!!
I own this bag from it's first go around in Mod Floral Blue. I love this bag!! It holds so much and doesn't feel heavy, and the strap is long enough to go crossbody on me and I'm not a skinny mini!
It has 3 slip pockets on the inside, two pockets on the outside, a pocket at each end and a zippered compartment in the back. I like to slip my phone and my keys in the front two pockets, my sunglasses in the side pockets and the inside for basic organization.
It's an amazing bag and I can't wait to get it in Fanfare and probably Bayou Blue.

Elated this is back!!
I cannot tell you how excited I am to have this bag back. I have several of them and they are my favorite style. When this bag was no longer offered I was devastated. I tried another bag but it fell short of my expectations and requirements for a purse. I love the cross body strap and all the pockets. I can find anything I need in my purse, even in the dark, because there is a pocket for everything. I will be buying at least one of these, maybe a couple. I only wish it was offered in more colors; none of these are my favorites. Thank you, Vera Bradley, for bringing this back. Maybe all those letters I wrote helped after all. :)

Amazing Daily Diaper Bag
You don't even want to know how many diaper bags I've tried, it's at least 10. I've tried all of the Vera baby bags as well, and this non diaper bag is the best diaper bag I've found for everyday use! It holds everything I need for a day, and I cloth diaper and these are quite a bit bulkier than disposables. I've found it helpful when others list what they fit so I'll run over it really quickly-
Back zipper: large changing pad folded (came with a different diaper bag) and disposable changing pads and diaper trash baggies. This is great because these things are easy to access one handed and lay down before sitting baby down to change her.
Front cargo pockets: one houses my VB euro wallet and a plastic baggie with my coupons as well as my keys, and the other is my "mommy pocket" with small deodorant, body spray, gum, chapstick, compact, ect.
Side pockets- these are a little tight but anything bigger and I think they'd make the bag too bulky, so it's no biggie. One holds sunglasses and my I slip my phone in it, the other holds a burp cloth that's easy to grab one handed if my baby spits up.
Main compartment side slip pockets- one has cotton nursing pads and feminine items, one has the medium packet of boogie wipes, the other has 2 size 2 disposable diapers. Any more or any bigger of a size and they wouldn't fit and would need to go in the large main area.
Main open compartment- swaddle blanket rolled up, cover clip to turn swaddle into a nursing cover, wipes, two cloth diapers, wet bag, change of clothes, bib, nasal aspirator, pacifier holder, two small toys, and bottom balm. I also (if necessary) throw in an older VB zippered sunglasses case with travel sunscreen, bug spray, teething tablets, and a thermometer in it.
THAT'S A LOT. And it all fits. I could throw other smaller things in. I love it, love love love it. My favorite thing though is wearing it crossbody and being able to access EVERYTHING in it with a baby in my arms. It's great. I just use it when I'm out shopping or out for the day, for a longer trip I'd reach for something larger like the Make a Change Bag which is very spacious. I have it in Heather and it's seriously beautiful in person! If you need a medium/largish purse/diaper bag and need to be hands free this is the best I've found!
