I like big bags…
But I desperately WANT to be able to carry a smaller one sometimes. Case in point: I got this Jerome Dreyfuss bag a month or so ago and have carried it only once because not 30 minutes after I left the house, I was missing some things I usually carry in my bag after paring everything down to fit into this smaller bag.
And then, I just felt naked without a big tote and all my “stuff.” I know it’s all in my head, and of course, I survived the day without my cuticle nippers, but I think it’s time to give up on trying to fit my life into a small bag. I just can’t do it. Obviously, I am not a minimalist LOL
I love small bags though. They’re so appealing, just like having a very small, curated wardrobe is appealing. But neither has proven to be realistic for me.
I do want to be able to carry a smaller bag when I travel, but that doesn’t always work out, because I like to have a tote or bag big enough I can carry a water bottle and/or layers around with me, especially for city travel.
When it’s hot, I like a smaller bag I can carry cross body – it just feels “cooler” than lugging around a huge tote.
And I like how organized a smaller bag is, everything in it’s place and a place for everything. Fewer things though, which is the rub.
More my style…I also like a bag big enough to throw my laptop into

Way too many lip thingies…Lipstick Queen favorite 🙂
So, here’s my question: do you prefer big or small? How often do you change your bag? What do you carry with you every day? Does your bag style depend on the season? How do you transition from a big bag to a smaller one without feeling like you’re “missing” things??
We’re going to Florida this weekend for my step-son’s 8th grade graduation so I’m going to use the Jerome Dreyfuss bag as my purse and use a weekender carry-on for everything else. Wish me luck !!
Oh, and in case you needed an eye-roll today, YSL has named their latest teeny tiny bag the “blogger bag.” UGH. BARF. (sorry)
