Which should I seriously consider?
Madewell Transport Tote
Cuyana Classic Leather Tote
What I really want is a new purse. As I texted my friend the other day at lunchtime: "I want a new purse and I'm in the mood for something expensive" because once I start thinking about a purse, I can't stop. It was on my mind all day. Though it doesn't have to be expensive, because I don't believe that expensive makes for a better purse. My favorite bag, maybe ever, is this Halogen brand one that I got from Nordstrom's for $33 back in 2013. I used it for 2 1/2 years and it started to wear a bit. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat but they were discontinued and I got the last one in the store on that particular day. So sad.
I got this Hershel bag in July and intended to use it for school, but it's not as big as I'd prefer and, if we're being honest, a highlighter exploded on the inside and I didn't discover it until a week later. I do use the bag but I'm afraid to try to wash the highlighter out because it might make it worse. Problems.
But, along the lines of wanting a new purse, I'm kind of sick of carrying two bags. I usually carry a purse; a work bag for clipboards, papers, binders, my planner, and everything else that won't fit in my purse; a lunchbox; and a gym clothes bag if I have Girls on the Run after school. That's FOUR bags. Plus, I'm usually trying to maneuver the quarter mile walk into my building without spilling my water bottle or my tea. It's a struggle.
I was thinking that if I could consolidate a bit, life might be easier. In this regard at least.
Recommend a bag please!
