Raise your hand if you carry more stuff with you to and from work (or wherever) on a daily basis than any normal human should? Both of mine are up, for sure. And while I try to keep things as simple as I can by buying smaller crossbodies, some days I just need a bag that's going to hold everything and then some.
Enter: the Emma Work Bag by Jemma. This bad boy is easily the most spacious handbag I own and when I say it fits everything, I mean it fits ev-uh-ry-thing. I easily had all of my daily necessities (wallet, keys, 36 different lipglosses and lipsticks) plus a laptop, a pair of flats and my camera all snugly packed into this bag with room to spare and, unless you picked it up to see how much it weighed, you'd never know I basically had my life in it. It's super spacious, has a ton of compartments for organizational purposes and not to mention it's just gorg. It gets bonus #momlife points from me as well because it's great for toting around snacks, books, toys and all things toddler while running errands ;) Basically, everyone wins.
On another note, it finally stopped raining in D.C. long enough to wear all the cute springs pieces I've purchased -- including this dress. It's been hanging in my closet for weeks while I kept my jeans, sweaters and rain boots on rotation. But now that we're out of whatever weather funk we were in (and hopefully stay out of it), I couldn't wait to wear it!
