I have such an unnatural (and probably unhealthy) obsession with bucket bags. I am not even sure why. Maybe it’s because I am a little over the gigantic bags I am always lugging around. You see, ever since I became a mother, I have also become a “just in case” packer. Just in case my son needs an extra pair of pants, just in case it gets cold out, just in case he wants his favourite toy. You get the point, I tend to over prepare for every time I have to leave the house. I just love how fun the bucket bag looks, and even though I am really not sure how practical it is, I desperately want one.
The thing is, my son is almost four now and he does not need nearly as many “just in case’ things as he used to. Still I can’t seem to help my urge to pack an extra everything. Also, when I do go out without my son I still reach for these enormous bags (mind you I don’t own any other sizes). So perhaps getting a bucket bag will help me let go a little OR I could be reading way too much into this urge to buy one. Maybe I just want one because I seem to see a prettier one every time I open a magazine or read a fashion blog. Whatever the case may be, I think it’s about time I set out to find one.
I have gathered a few of my favourite bucket bags in this post and I hope you enjoy the images. What do you think about the bucket bag? Do you own one or would you purchase one? I would love to hear from you!
TILL LATER, LAUREN!
