I've never been good at carrying a purse. Over the years, my blatant rebellion against this time honored tradition has become a bit of a joke within my family. I'm prone to leaving my things scattered about the house- driver's license, debit card, cell phone, keys, you name it and I can't find it. It's not just a bad habit I carry on with at home either. Inevitably, I'll leave my parent's house following a visit, only to get a call just about the time I hit the freeway onramp that I've left some critical item behind.
When I do carry a purse, it always results in a Mary Poppins scenario. Old receipts, recipes, scarves, my measuring tape and half empty water bottles will undoubtedly fill the thing until it becomes unmanageably heavy and I discard it altogether.
But the truth is, I'm well into my 30's at this point and frankly tired of losing my mind looking for things on my way out of the house. So today, I resolve to embrace this lady-like ritual once and for all. It's unlikely that I'd swap out expensive bags frequently, but I figure a couple of good investment pieces might just be the motivation I need to stick with it.
