Let the Baby celebration continue!

There’s a very particular, very jovial energy that races through the Vera Bradley offices when someone arrives with a baby. It’s like a magnetic force field, pulling people to gather and coo. So, when we invited Sara G., Global Production Manager, and her 6-month-old daughter Colette in for a photo shoot, you can imagine what it looked like behind the scenes.

Named after Sara’s aunt, little Colette is almost rolling over, nearly sitting up and has already been tasked with testing styles for Vera Bradley Baby. Sara’s transition into her role as a working mom was eased a bit when her own Mother volunteered to take the baby during the day. “I’m very lucky to have my Mom watching her,” Sara said. “I know she’s safe and when she does something cute, I get a video!”

Of course, we had to ask if we could peek in Sara’s bag. Her Convertible Baby Bag in Tutti Frutti is brimming with the essentials: A pacifier, diapers, burp rag, wipes, Bib Set, bottles, toys, extra clothes and a Cosmetic Trio packed with a nail file, lotion, diaper cream and a thermometer, among other must-haves. For a brief outing during the day, Sara’s Mom prefers a tried-and-true Tote. “I don’t have to carry everything if I’m just running out,” she says. “So a Tote is ideal.”

While Miss Colette wore a Dress and Bloomers and Mary Jane Soft Shoes in Lilli Bell for her first photo op with Mom, the pair’s collection is always expanding and evolving. For her first Easter, “I really want to get her a Bunny and Daisy tote,” Sara says. As for her mommy style, Sara is finding herself, as many moms do, drawn to crossbody styles. “I have to be hands-free, so a Hipster or similar style is great. I love the Backpack for a trip to the zoo, too.”

As soon as she was done, our little model fell asleep and her admirers dispersed. We did cut into her naptime, after all.

    Absolutely love the summer ’13 release, not a pattern in the collection I wouldn’t want to miss. Hipsters are my “go to” bag, I love crossbody and hands-free options. Also noticed Sara’s Pandora bracelet, also a favorite of mine. I have always thought Vera & Pandora go together like peanut butter & jelly – classic, delicious combination. 🙂
