C snapped my outfit photos this afternoon before I headed out for a day of crossing items off the ol’ to-do list. I realized something as I looked through them. Every picture in which I’m carrying my bag on my shoulder, I’m leaning like the Tower of Pisa! You know your handbag is too large and/or heavy if you have to lean ….t….h….i….s…. much to keep your balance and avoid falling over!

Everyone I know has told me for years that my handbags are bigger than me, and that I’m not doing my back any favors by carrying the handbag-equivalent-of-a-weekender-bag on my shoulder every day. After today, I think I may need to downsize…
Before I do, I’ll be sure to do an “In the Bag” post so you can see the ridiculousness of everything I carry with me on a daily basis. It’s like an episode of Hoarders in there.

  1. >Oops! Sorry for the repeat comment. You look super cute in a romper, and I'm kind of jealous that I can't find one to pull off. Although I'm 5'11", so it would be hard for me to find one that is an acceptable length (for me, at least) You look super cute and comfy! likeunexpectedsunshine.blogspot.com

  2. >Really cute look. The romper looks great on you…not everyone can pull off a romper with flats, but mixed in with the cardigan and hair up…it works. I love it;)

  3. >You look so cute in black and blue….LOVE the color of the cardi…..I did the purse downsize not that long ago too….I was amazed by all the stuff I carried, that I never even needed, lol. Good luck!!

  4. >I also carry my whole life around with me in my bag, and I was just thinking that this one is perfect! Did you get it recently? I need a structured tote…Also, I hope the nude flats aren't as uncomfortable as the red ones!

  5. >I adore the romper with cardigan look…so cute and perfect for weekend errands! The flats look great too…did they work better for you than the red ones?Also, request – if you are planning on doing a handbag cleanout, I'd be really interested to know your thought process with some of the items you have typically "needed" and decided didn't make the cut. I always struggle and make up excuses, thus making no progress! :)
