Oh I can’t even begin to thing when was the last time I published a ‘what’s in my bag’ kind of post, really, so today we’re talking handbag essentials, shall we?!
I’ve never been one who loves to go to the minimum when it comes to handbag contents, although in the years I’ve come to prefer small bags to big spacious ones. Even if I’ve gone a few months with a big shopper bag and would have sworn about it all the time, as soon as the season has changed I’ve found myself after a smaller alternative once again, and so I went on the hunt for the perfect crossbody bag, that wasn’t too big nor too small and constricting!
This Mint&Berry mini crossbody bag (similar here) was exactly what I was after and I loved the Cognac colour as soon as I saw it! But moving from a huge shopper to a tiny bag was kind of traumatic: I was used to carry my whole house and more with me all the time all summer long and now I had to reduce the whole thing to the very minimum!
That makes you realize you only need a few essentials with you (or not?). For me, those are something like a small handy portable charger that’s only slightly bigger than a lipstick, a notebook or two to note down or sketch any ideas I get on-the-go, a cute card holder (my poor Topshop wallet wasn’t really closing anymore…) and of course the lipstick I’m wearing that day for touch-ups!
