I find that I am like most women, carrying a ton around in my bag - mainly because I have room to do so. I really wanted to lighten up this summer, and give my shoulders a bit of a rest from carrying around my life in a bag. This small purse from JCrew was the ideal solution for my goal of lightening up. I can carry what I need, and that's about it. The purse has room for a small wallet, my phone, my work blackberry (yes, I realize it's a bit much to have two devices), keys, and a few other items depending on where I am off to. I love that it's cross body and I don't have to worry about it slipping off my shoulder and I run around the city.
