Our “now normal” means that my typical day-to-day tote once prized for its ability to handle the school run and hopping to daily meetings, is not really in my accessory rotation. Because I am working from home more and venture out less, I have re-prioritized and paired-down my in-bag essentials and therefore now only need a petite purse. Even our interviewee this week, Tricia Fairfax Hash from Tree Fairfax, talks about her line of bags that are centered around “going lightly” and clearly we are so into this idea.
These small bags pictured here are super reasonable and fit my phone, small card wallet, hand sanitizer, and a rolled-up mask— everything I need to dash out. The gold bucket and Mickey Mouse tote are from Zara and the boho slouchy one is from Free People. So right now my fancy bags and clutches are getting their beauty rest in my closet (hopefully gearing up for their holiday debut!), and these cute stand-ins are really fitting the bill.
