❖ whats in my bag

I have a love/hate relationship with purses. I'm so picky about them! A purse has to meet a certain requirements in order for me to use it, but I also have to have the ability to be able to just take one thing out so I don't have to lug the armory everywhere with me. Just so you know what kind of requirements my purse has to meet, here you go: 

☑ Has to be a crossbody bag.
☑ Has to be able to close and not look like it's bursting at the seams. 
☑ Has to be able to carry all my things. 
☑ Has to be able to fit my personality/ clothing choices 87% of the time.

Non requirements but pluses.

✓ Leather or faux leather is always nice.
✓ If a pattern, must be brightly colored. 
✓ Must have a nice small pocket to fit keys and phone. 

My current bag, Jo Tote's Betsy in Mustard is perfect. It fits all the crap I tote around. Its a pretty color, and I get complements all over the place for it. Here's what's in it. 

It fits! All the crap fits! Here it is all laid out. 

Clockwise from left:
Vera Bradley Coin Purse in Mod Floral Blue (Color is now retired)
This little thing holds all my little toiletries that I need to have on a day to day basis. 
Rayban Wayfarers and an Urban Outfitters Glasses case. 
iPad Mini 16 GB in White with Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio in Purple (for blogging on the go)
Nintendo 3DS in Purple and case and stylus.
iPhone 5 16GB in White with Case of Identity case.
Work Badge (blah) 
Vera Bradley Smartphone Wristlet in Marina Paisley (color is also now retired, so bummed out)
Bear Claw Back Scratcher (this thing is amazing!) 
One of my favorite pens of all times, the Pilot precise V5
*not pictured: My Canon Power Shot SX500 IS

Thats a lot of junk in the purse. And as much as I love my current purse, I feel like I need something a little bit smaller/something a little different. I've been searching high and low for another purse that can fit it all. Here are my top three choices for the NEXT bag.

I think its crazy that the two of the bags I want are again from Jo Totes. They just have a great product with their bags. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to go with the Abby in Black because I want something a bit understated right now. I've just got to put aside some money for the next couple of weeks so I can save up for it.

So if you are a tote/satchel/purse carrying person, what are your favorite types?

So YO! This post contains no affiliate links or anything like that making me money. Every thing in my pictures above is something I've purchased or was gifted by a family member. Links in the post are provided in case you want to know where I got it from!
