Memo 157: Look, Ma! No Hands

OB. Sessed! 

Ok, I know this is taking it back like side pony tails and slouch socks but this hands free movement is giving my spirit life. I’m talking belt bags and backpacks. No seriously. Just imagine being able to literally throw BOTH hands in the air like you don’t care at Coachella next year when Pharrell decides to invite his twelve closest entertainer friends to come out and perform again.

A few weeks ago, I was sporting my Michael Kors belt bag at Howard University Homecoming’s tailgate and I just felt so free. I wasn’t fumbling around when I went to make myself a plate of the finest of southern cooking or when pouring myself a very adult beverage.

Listen, Linda. Get into this hands free movement. It may change your life…

I’m more of a sleek and sexy belt bag/backpack kind of girl. These are just a few options that I have found and loved.

    I do love option #1……I may start giving backpacks a try.

    Been sporting a black yummy soft leather backpack for over ten years now. Sometimes I change to a purse at night or special dress up occasion. May hafta try these new ones you're showing!

    Love all of these bags especially #1 and #10. The idea of wearing a smaller bag and not weighing down one shoulder with a large tote like I have been is definitely appealing.

    You had me at "Listen, Linda." That just makes me laugh so hard. Anyway, I have a belt purse that I enjoy, but sometimes I feel like I'm cramming my I.D. and bank card in it with no room for a lippy. The tradeoff right? I am feelin' #2. Thanks for the reminder that less is more.
