I've always been a big bag person, and usually my 'what's in my bag' posts consist of an arm-wrenching amount of stuff that barely fits in shot! M&S challenged me to do a 'what's in my bag for autumn' post and rather than pick another carry-all oversized shopper, I went for this cute structured satchel.
I love the shape, it sits just perfectly on my shoulder, and it is probably doing wonders for my back as well! I hate when I have a tiny evening bag and I have to take everything out of my purse and leave it loose in the bottom, so I am pleased this fits my oversized purse in it no problems, along with my other essentials. Cutting down on my make-up was the hardest part of downsizing my bag, as I like to have it all with me regardless of the fact that all I really ever reapply during the day is concealer and lippy! Once I got over that though this really is the perfect little bag.
