i am a tiny little woman. seriously. i am. i stand at 5’1″ and although i seem heavy at times (no thanks to my rather large hip and butt and serious weight gain on off days), i am what you would call petite. and so it is only fitting that i do not drown myself in huge bags. i have always preferred them at a certain size – something small and easy to carry (coz i dont actually bring my whole house with me) or if i do go big, it is at a reasonable size, meaning it is not bigger than me (coz i would hate to carry something that is heavier than my fridge). and because summer has hit us big time, and well, because the era of the mini bag has conquered the streets of fashion, i am sharing with you my latest love affair. with the rather beautiful REBECCA MINKOFF mini bag [find options here] that i have been sporting ever since i got it from SHOPBOP.

the bag is just the cutest little thing and i can fit everything i need for a casual day out. i picked the white one coz apart from the fact that it screams summer, it is just absolutely perfect to pair for my usual all white/grey ensemble and it is also the best contrast for those black outfits that i always wear. best buy ever.

oh and i joined SNAPCHAT by the way so do follow me [mahryska] for some real-time madness.
