I’m a recent convert to the concept of using a tote bag and slipping a smaller hand or shoulder bag inside. I always thought using just one bag to hold everything was easiest. Lately, I’m finding it isn’t.
Sometimes the tote stays in the car while I grab the smaller bag for running in and out of stores or appointments. Purses tend to be heavy all by themselves these days. Many are laden down with chains and hardware that look stylish, but add extra weight my shoulders don’t need.
I’m using my lightweight tote by Longchamp most days here in Palm Springs.
We waited outside the Camelot Theater to see Charlotte Rampling’s new movie at the Palm Springs film festival last night.
My tote would have been perfect to hold a cozy warm wrap, but I didn’t know it would be freezing at night so ended up wearing my husband’s big, ugly parka 🙂
After waiting an hour in the cold, we were delighted to find a cozy bar upstairs.A glass of Chardonnay and popcorn quickly warmed us up.
The movie was interesting and I loved that the audience applauded at the end of the film!
We’ve now got tickets for several other movies so there will lots of popcorn in my future. Next time my tote will carry a scarf, gloves, and warm wrap.
Longchamp totes come in multiple sizes. Mine is the large size with 9″ handles. Long enough to fit over my shoulder but not too long to hold by hand. It has a tiny inner pocket to hold my keys or cell phone, which is handy so I don’t have to hunt for them.
Do you use tote bags or prefer just one handbag?
Here are some other tote bags I like.
