Casual. That’s the one word I have the most trouble comprehending. My born and raised California friends are experts at dressing down. I physically shutter in my shoes when I hear them say “just wear something casual.” My wardrobe is everything but. Nevertheless, I’ve nailed my meaning of casual in this suede skirt 2nd option.
A big bag is my favorite accessory (aside from my Fitbit Blaze). I got this Longchamp bag for my 16th birthday (almost 5 years ago!). Although it has seen better days, it is in great shape for the amount of wear and tear I’ve brought upon it. I carry it everywhere. It’s traveled from SoCal to Alabama a countless number of times. I carried it while in Paris and London. It’s the perfect size to carry on a plane because it fits your computer along with everything else you need while flying, and it fits underneath the seat in front of you with ease. One thing I personally need to work on is to stop throwing garbage in it. The bottom of my purse is often full of gum wrappers, receipts, and grocery lists from store runs past. I don’t know why but it’s become a bottomless pit of paper.
