Cross Your Heart

For the past 8 years I've been basically carrying my life around in huge bags. Whether satchels, hobos, buckets, or totes, big bags have been my go-to purses to house everything from iPads to bobby pins to a countless collection of lip-glosses.

That is until I decided to downsize my daily essentials (that I carry) and ditched my bottomless pit purses. Now, when I grab my bag, it's a small cross-body purse that is practical as it is pretty.  Plus, they're effortless to carry - so you can wear them with ease.

Check out a few of these small wonders:

I love a big bag too but I've been considering downsizing. My big bags are killing my back.

Big Bags for the win!

How funny, I recently bought a smaller bag because I was going to PR and didn't want to attract any negative attention. But I actually loved the smaller bag, it was for small enough for the essentials and not bulky as my regular bag. It actually has me thinking that I may need to downsize.

i love big bags, but I'm trying to take a load off my shoulders. I've been carrying clutches and wristlets more often.

You know what. The small bags are SO cute and on trend. I can't do it though. I don't have a car, so my life needs to literally fit into my purse. No stashing flip-flops in the trunk for later. They have to go in a big bag. The bigger the better!
