Ought Not To, Ought To: Tote Bags
As a child and teenager (nope, not a teenager anymore), I always used small handbags whenever I went out. But now, as I'm getting on in my years and my youth is slowly slipping away (I'm 20 and a half plus a bit - practically over the hill), I'm noticing that as my age increases, so does my bag size. Suddenly, I find it necessary to carry around SO many things.
I mean, there's no chance of rain forecasted for the next 6 months, but leave the house without an umbrella? Never! And then I need my wallet, pens, phone, toothpicks, box of crayons (duh), gum, sunglasses - with the case, Chapstick, water bottle, sometimes my laptop - you see where I'm going?
If you've recently found yourself transitioning to larger sized bags as well (or have been using big handbags for quite a while already), this post is for you. When choosing a bigger handbag, a tote bag is a very fine choice for toting (see what I did there?) all your "completely necessary" paraphernalia; a tote bag has a classic shape and usually has a decent amount of room for all your things.
And there's room for customization here. You can choose between small, medium, or large totes, in solid or patterned colors, and in leather or non-leather fabrics. Oh hey, would you look at that - you'll find all those styles I just mentioned above and below this text. Cool, yo.
