My 10 Best Purchases: No. Seven

Oct 23, 2018

It seems like most women are on the hunt for a big bag that will hold almost anything and everything.  But what if a smaller bag, with great organization, could be the answer to your travel, weekend, and night-out purse needs.

I bought this pink Mackage Rubie bag to carry when I travel.  It seemed too small to be useful for anything else, but boy, was I wrong.  Within a month after buying the bag, I was carrying it pretty much everywhere.

I loved it so much that I upgraded to the crossbody size, the Keeley.  Like the Rubie, it’s divided into two compartments with a separate card case built in, so you don’t need a wallet.  And unlike the Rubie, it will comfortably hold a larger cell phone, like the 8 Plus.

The interesting thing about owning a small bag that you really love is that you start pairing down your daily must-haves to the bare essentials.  This bag, with it’s adorably chic arrow clasp and structured shape, made me a minimalist.

    Would you consider doing a “What’s in my bag” post? I always find it interesting to see what other people carry on a daily basis.

    Just want to say that I’m loving this series – thanks for doing this!

    I love the Keeley’s size, compartments, and built-in card holder! Unfortunately, my budget is closer to $150. Anyone have recommendations for a similar bag that’s budget-friendly? TIA!

    Is this big enough for a laptop (a big, corporate one – not a sleek ultrabook)? 🙂

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
