My purse is actually not a purse; it is a camera bag. I’m sneaky like that. Which is nice especially when traveling to have a cozy place to put your camera. (Or on a nature walk as my husband said that these photos look like today. It should be said that I’ve never been on a nature walk and this is an alley.) I’ve decided that I have just a little bit of room in here though that I think I can cram in my lip gloss, phone and wallet. Because at the end of the day, the other 30 lbs I carry around in my purse is really for comfort. Of course where would I be without all of my receipts from the past 6 months crumbled at the bottom of my bag so wrinkled that they are now illegible? What would happen if someone stopped me on the streets and tried to audit me right there and I had no recollection of my past purchase history at the grocery store and gas pump? Or my half-eaten Larabar from who knows when — what if I get hungry for a stale energy bar and I have nothing? And where will I put my twenty bobby pins for emergency updos or my matchbook in case I need to light something on fire? WHERE?!

On the other hand, perhaps I shall just keep this as a camera bag after all.

  5. I am LOVING that camera bag and the fact that you keep a ton of things in your purse for comfort… because I do that, too. Most recently, I’ve been moving some of it to my camera bag (because, you know, as a photographer, you never know what you’ll need). The most ridiculous thing so far? A koozie. And I don’t even feel bad or weird about it. -erin

  41. okay this is especially creepy because I AM WEARING THIS SAME THING today. madewell dress (albeit this summer’s sleeveless version), same gap button-up, and my replacement for our beloved but worn-down steve madden boots.

      We are two stylish souls that can not be seperated by the miles between us. And you are probably a psychic, I’ve always got that vibe from you.

      Get this, when I was getting ready today I thought of you and thought — this is a very Tania outfit. Then I wrote a dissertation. And on a side note — did you see that Target has our steve madden boot knock offs? I think they are like $28. My nostalgia might get the best of me and my thirty dollars.

    This is grandma-pinching-your-cheeks level of adorable. But you’re tall so you manage to not look like you’re 11. For some reason, when you’re 5’3″ and under 40, it’s very easy for people to assume you’re not a full grown adult. Hopefully you don’t have that problem, because I know how you like to dress like a kid :)

  118. okay this is especially creepy because I AM WEARING THIS SAME THING today. madewell dress (albeit this summer's sleeveless version), same gap button-up, and my replacement for our beloved but worn-down steve madden boots.
    is this proof that i am psychic or just stylish?

    We are two stylish souls that can not be seperated by the miles between us. And you are probably a psychic, I've always got that vibe from you.

    Get this, when I was getting ready today I thought of you and thought — this is a very Tania outfit. Then I wrote a dissertation. And on a side note — did you see that Target has our steve madden boot knock offs? I think they are like $28. My nostalgia might get the best of me and my thirty dollars.
