The curated minimalist bag collection
"In my imaginary life, I only own 1 bag but in reality, I do need a few more"
- An everyday bag to carry my laptop, lunch box, a water bottle a small toiletry bag, and some small things.
- A smaller handbag for the simple days. The focus is on finding what I need — wallet, lip balm, keys, pen, phone, notebook — when I need it.
- A big bag for the days when I need to carry a lot. Maybe the family's bathing suits and towels, packing for summer house weekend or if I'm at the warehouse or a photoshoot. Those dags my bag is filled with bags :)
Whichever bag I choose to carry for the day I stick to My Bag Routine the day before to keep myself as happy and calm as possible. The bags I use to fulfill these needs (and many more!) are my curated Bukvy collection including:
This bag is my true day-saver on my intense workdays. I don't always know what the day will bring but whatever happens, I know that my Bo Bardi will support me: as a backpack on the bike to work, as a lunch-shoulder bag, grocery shopper tote, or at the bank meeting as a laptop case.
I have come to love this mid-sized wallet bag more every year. It fits everything I need on a day out. I know where my keys are, lip balm, cards, sunglasses, iPods, snack box, and my pen. I mostly carry it with a wide strap but sometimes also as a clutch.
I cannot stress the capacity of this bag enough. I realize that I need to make a video introduction of what this bag fits to explain it better - and it is comfortable and beautiful at the same time!
This is what I carried in my maxi last weekend: lunch for me and the kids, a wine bottle as a gift to the dinner host, 2 towels and 3 bathing suits, flip flops, a toiletry bag and a water bottle.
I use these three bags almost every week and they make my life more simple and more organized. My hands know how to pack them without thinking and I know when each bag is suitable.
With these versatile bags, 3 is definitely enough
