The Weight of the World

November 22, 2012

 Wilfred coat c/o Aritzia, skinnies c/o Raven Denim, Club Monaco top and blazer,
scarf c/o Little Burgundy, bag c/o Roots, jewelry c/o Keltie Leanne, Timbaland boots
Can we all just take a moment to look at my bag and how incredibly stuffed it is? Yesterday it contained my camera, my laptop, all my chargers, my wallet, a Joe Fresh bag with a tank in it, my glasses case and probably about 5-10 other miscellaneous things. And I wonder why I have back problems.
I wish I could figure out a way of downsizing from day-to-day, but seriously…as a blogger you need everything. I’ve been considering looking into a tablet of some sort so that even if I can’t do a ton of typing, I can at least do emails and other small amounts of writing. Does anyone have one, and if so, do you think it’s worth the investment?

    No wonder we bloggers have back problems, indeed! You'd think we'd have more muscles, too, considering all of the stuff we lug around while still managing to look stylish. I seriously love that coat, it is a gem. Talk to you soon, girl!

    I love my iPad! I even do most of my post through it. You still have to add pictures though the computer, though. I would highly recommend the investment. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I use my Kindle fire to check emails, read blogs and other basic online tasks. I can't update my blog from it though, which is bit of a bummer.

    You would definitely benefit from a tab, I love mine. I use the Samsung 8.9 and I love it, but the new Microsoft Tab is amazing, and you can get a keyboard so it functions as a PC when you need it to!
    Great outfit as always ๐Ÿ™‚

    My bag for university used to be that stuffed too, add a couple textbooks and a lunch. My bag is so messed up from school!
    I love the colour combination of the navy and burgundy, these shades look stunning together. And you always layer so well!!

    Eep, your back and shoulders must be killing you with all that weight! I have an iPad and it's pretty great. I don't really use it for blogging because I prefer to use my computer for editing/Photoshop and typing but it's awesome for e-mails, Twitter, Instagram, and general Internet surfing. I've been considering getting one of those keyboard cases to remedy the typing issue.

    Love the outfit, those colors are amazing !
    I'm not good at downsizing either. Most times if I carry a small bad, I also have a crossbody stuffed with tons of stuff ! Call me a bag lady haha !

    Your bag IS stuffed, but SO cute!! And you look so pretty- I love the color!

    Invest in a cross-body bag to spread the weight around. I can carry min around all day and not hurt at the end of it. So worth it. -Heidi

    My bag looks exactly like that! I can never seem to figure out how women (especially bloggers) can get away with carrying all of their things in a clutch or side bag! I'm worried my magazines, computer, etc are going to rip my tote! I'll be reading the comments as well to get a better idea! Let us know if you get a tablet, which one!

    I have always had serious back problems and my incredibly heavy backpacks during grades school have not helped but I just try (when on campus) to keep as many things in my locker there as possible and when that is not an option to sit my bag down as often as possible. But some days I just have to tough it out. My average bag contains my wallet, my journal, my planner, my camera, post it notes and various other things and when on campus it has various books and my MacBook Pro 15' added into the mix plus charger. YIKES!!!

    I like how your scarf, jeans and bag all match!

    You look so cute & cozy in that outfit! And I always feel like a bag lady too. I think a tablet would be a great investment ๐Ÿ™‚

    i had been thinking this forever, and literally JUST got one… and honestly? it's saved my life. i broke my back 2 years ago, and my days of writing in a coffee shop with my mac book pro were lost… and this little guy picked me right back up.

    do it. you won't regret it!
