De-Clutter


My black, shiny bag is annoying me at the moment. As well as being heavy (my fault for putting unnecessary items in there), it keeps slipping off my shoulder. Yes, bag, I know I'm not the most glamorous shoulder ever. But, really? Stop trying to escape! Therefore, in an attempt to de-clutter one aspect of my life and to welcome the coming of Spring, I feel it is time to start looking for a new, more well behaved, colourful smaller bag. A clutch or a mini satchel, to be precise.



Note to self: If purchasing one of these bags, the items that used to take pride of place in big, black shiny bag will have to make way for more delicate pieces. No more litre bottles of water (that can be used a self-defence mechanism). Suffer for fashion. Suffer!





Do you like my mini bag selection?

They are both very chic! I have the same problem with my big black bag slipping off my shoulder all day long. And I like to carry around water too!

I haven't carried a small bag with me in a LONG time. I have too much stuff that I forget to take out, so it just gets piled up... I need to be more conscious of this!

Kate said...
