Pack it up, buttercup! Yup, that’s exactly what I did. Yesterday was my last day at a job I’ve been doing for nearly ten years. Before I left, I welled up about 7 times. Alright. I outright cried, and it wasn’t pretty. My coworkers fattened me up with delicious food and sent me away with flowers, cards and a new reusable water bottle (because I can’t get through a 3 month period without destroying one). It was an excellent end to a very long run in my department.
I work in an academic setting and carry a big tote to work. And by tote, I mean a black Kate Spade diaper bag that I found on sale at TJ Maxx. Apparently, I need just as many pockets as a new mom! I’ve got handouts, they’re multiplying. Needless to say, I was grateful to have that baby as I cleaned out my desk and packed away my belongings.
My real purses come out on the weekends when the diaper bag is taking a nap. Take a gander at your bag collection. Do you need a couple of replacements this fall? This crybaby does. I went ahead and found us some bags for less than $50. By the way, the Dorothy Perkins selections are an additional 25% off – not too shabby.
The trick to pulling off an inexpensive purse is finding one with minimal detailing in a classic style. I am currently smitten by each and every one of these bags, but I can’t stop thinking about the fish clutch. Seriously, it’s swimming around in my dreams. He’s quite the catch – so quirky and unique.
Which of the 6 is your favorite? And, of course, my burning question: Does anyone else carry a diaper bag to work?
Happy Friday! Have a fantastic and relaxing long weekend!
