Two things about today
1.) When wearing a pretty basic outfit like a t-shirt, spike it up a few notches with a cool pair of shoes
2.) A little bit of change in the form of a little bag is sometimes a good thing.
I'm so used to lugging around my life in a huge bag; usually that huge beige one you see in nearly every photo of me and a purse. Ever since I got back from Ohio I've been eager to use my vintage Coach bag I scored at the Thrift Store. It's not a problem on a Saturday for instance, when carrying less is easy and best. But a weekday, downsize??????
Until today! I realized that carrying just my phone, my small tiny wallet, my keys, face powder, and lipgloss was not as bad as I imagined. Usually I carry 20x the makeup, lots of styling products, coupons, a huge heavy wallet, and probably more coupons. Throw in a magazine and you've got a 15lb bag I call my everyday purse.
So imagine how CAREFREE and LIGHT I felt today! It wasn't so bad, so good in fact I think I'll try it for the rest of the week.
Small bags and small changes, this is looking to be a good thing.
(Now let's work on changing my daily wardrobe already, I cannot seem to ever get rid of my jeans and t-shirt habit).
*Green jacket, F21
*Coral t-shirt, Target
*Skinny Jeans, Uniqlo
*Beige booties, Rachel Rachel Roy
*Scarf, Old Navy
*Vintage purse, Coach (thrift store)
Does anyone else find themselves harboring a natural aversion to small purses?
Or are you already pretty much a minimalist so much so that it just extends to the contents of what you tote everyday?
