Mini Handbags: Must or Miss?

I like big bags, and I cannot lie. Wherever I go, you can be sure to catch me with a handbag large enough to carry groceries for a family of four.  Why?!?  Truthfully, I don’t have a legitimate rationale beyond the fact that I have always been a bag lover.  Granted, I do carry a day planner, two iPhones, an iPad, hand sanitizer, lip gloss, Advil, and my keys at all times…and that does tend to take up some major space.

Here are some of my massive handbags you may have seen in previous posts.



Wearing a bigger bag often encourages you to carry more unnecessary items, but I take complete responsibility for my future bag and shoulder problems.

However, over the past three weeks, I tried doing the unthinkable…I attempted to get some rest.  Shocker, I know.  During these three weeks, I decided to cast my oversized bags away for some teeny tiny creations.  Micro bags have been everywhere the past few months, and I imagine they may be here to stay for a while.  At the conclusion of these three weeks, I decided that I will remain a big bag lover.  While it was nice to carry a lighter load, honestly, what can you fit in this bag?!?!



The answer? NOTHING…a phone, keys (maybe a single one), that’s about it. Instead, I am all in favor of using them as charms for my bigger bags. 🙂 At least I tried…

Although I err on the side of the oversized handbag, I certainly can appreciate some of the adorable minis out this season.  Here are some of my personal minis.

      Yes, mini bags really are great for travel or nights out. It definitely makes life easier. During the day, I tend to go for the oversize bags. I’m just trying to carry less items.

    I too like to side with the big bags. I never went out without a big bag. I liked to carry a water bottle, lip gloss, eyeliner, wallet and a snack. But ever since I had my baby, I completely gave up on bags. The baby just keeps my hands full! 😦 I stick the necessities, like lip gloss, keys and phone in my pockets. Never thought there would be such a day for me.

      I’m big on carry my water bottle and other basics, and they just take up so much space. With a little one to look after, I can imagine the accessories go out the door when it comes to priorities. My friends have all turned their strollers into purses. 😉
