I have a confession to make. I have a serial problem with carting around with me more than I could possibly need. Three notebooks, four lip balms, two pens, a scarf ‘just-in-case’, a packet of painkillers, snacks in case of emergency – well, you get my drift. Sometimes that box of plasters comes in handy, like when you’re breaking in a new pair of shoes, but most of the time, I’m pretty sure I’m probably carrying around dead weight. And all that dead weight on my shoulder can’t be doing good things for my back.

But I’m all for a change of pace, and I mean, it’s probably psychological, that need to carry around your entire life plus a change of socks. Sorting through the masses of my handbag to pull out the few things I can’t live without – a lip balm, keys, my iPhone, cards and some change, is a liberating feeling of sorts; one that I could definitely find myself getting used to. Happy Saturday!

    Perfect piece to downsize with. Beautiful color and shape. Great dress too! 🙂

    I’m exactly the same, I think that’s the problem with a big bag, you feel as though you may as well fill it up with things you ‘might need’ – ‘just incase’! Love the berry shade of this little one, looks beautiful against the black! <3

      Yep exactly!! The worst part though is trawling through your bag trying to find things!

      PS. I’ve been trying to comment on your blog for MONTHS and it won’t let me… I don’t know if it’s my Mac or..?

    Oh man I have that same problem. I carry my life in mine and have such a hard time trying to cull it down. I mean do I really need two pairs of aviators with me? LOL. But I love how you’ve been brave and moved to something compact and that requires you to seriously take stock of what needs to be with you at all times.

      Yep it’s definitely hard to learn to narrow it down that’s for sure!
