Apologies in advance, because I’m about to share a terribly boring story with you… Most of my days are either spent sitting at a computer or walking around Central London with an oversized handbag and SLR camera, so as a result I’ve developed poor posture and constantly suffer from back pain. This is not fun at all, and as I’ve now reached the limit of boring my friends with these bad-back woes I’m bringing them to the blog.
I’m sure many of you are in exactly the same boat anyway. Am I right? So let’s all moan about it together. Five, four, three, two, one, go… BACK PAIN SUCKS!
Feel a bit better now?
Over the last couple of months I’ve started taking this more seriously: I’m attending weekly yoga classes, am taking regular breaks from my laptop and – most importantly – I’ve started carrying smaller handbags. It was a difficult change to make, because I don’t travel light, but I feel so much freer! Also, teeny-tiny handbags look sooo much cooler than oversized totes right now.
Chanel’s little cross-body bag is the dream (Harley Viera Newton, you are one lucky lady), but if you’re not working with a supersized budget check out these 10 styles…
1. Topshop and Topshop USA | 2. ASOS and ASOS USA | 3. Kurt Geiger | 4. Topshop and Topshop USA | 5. Lauren Merkin Handbags | 6. Marc by Marc Jacobs| | 7. Lulu Guinness | 8. ASOS and ASOS USA | 9. ASOS and ASOS USA | 10. ASOS and ASOS USA
How you cut the contents of your handbag down to fit inside one of these little beauties is a problem I’ll leave you to solve. A simple credit card holder – like this chic number from Whistles – is an absolute must though!
Which teeny-tiny handbag is your favourite? Is this a look you’ll be wearing throughout spring/summer 2014? As always leave a comment and let me know…
