Minimize

 I went to Forever 21 Friday after work to browse the racks. I picked up a shirt, flats, a jean jacket and a blazer/blouse type shirt. I always stroll through the accessory section to see if any necklace strikes my fancy. No such luck this time but I did come across a cross body purse that caught my eye. I've been wanting to get a cross body bag for a while now. I'm tired of holding/balancing my larger purse on my shoulder. Often for work, I'm juggling many bags, binders, etc and my large purse containing a wasteful amount of crap just wasn't working for me anymore. This purse is small. It barely fits my large wallet but it has forced me to downsize. I took it with me to the Giants game on Sunday night (hence the orange and black feathers I attached in the first picture) and it was great. I dared to bring it to work today to give it a real life test drive. So far, so good.



Wallet, keys, lip gloss and two iphones (personal and work) are all that fit inside. All other stuff will need to be left at home or go into my work tote. 

Go Giants!!!


If I need more storage, I'll switch back to my bigger purse but I love the simple, small space that this purse gives me. It forces me to edit my life which is something I really need!
