the daily grind

bright eyes/her space holiday - contrast and compare

On most days I leave the house looking like a runaway. These three bags in tow, weigh me down everywhere I go. The woes of life without a car, without a boot. Will I ever get used to it?




It's ironic. This is really quite a small city. I heard from someone, you can drive from end to end in just one hour. Yet everyday, I seem to spend hours and hours zig-zagging the city, back and forth. Commuting, bus to rail, rail to bus. Commuting until my pair of legs just can't keep up.

Maybe it's time to buy a car, a golf cart, a trolley...?
Maybe, then, I wouldn't look so weighed down and lost like I do here.

dress - jimmy d
bike shorts - zara
man bag - burberry

Really? You can just drive from end to end in an hour? What a small city! Hehe :) Oh my, unending walks plus cummuting sounds so draining. Good luck, I hope you'll find an easy stress free way to work. Love the bag and the dress :) Have a great week!

Where do you live? I don't use a car because it gets more expensive than using public transportation, even though my dad bought a car for his wife and I to use. I have to drag myself around carrying laptop and books all the time, it gets so tiresome - I know how you feel.

Thanks for you comment! and no i dont mind the ranting! i rant all the time its just banter. But yeah, i agree completely with you. You know even now CDs are slowly being outnumbered by downloads and itunes. but i love CDs and having them to play on the cd player and even if they do die out im not gonna get rid of them! i did that with my cassets too, although i was about nine when cassets died out i think. But you're right, i think it will be the same years to come and although things change the theme always remains the same.

Love these photos by the way!

It's such a drag to have to be carrying around all that stuff. I'm sorry to say I've never been to neither Singapore nor New Zealand.

WOW!! Amazing outfit as always! The jimmy d dress is fabulous :o Love how you wore it with the black-white-striped shorts and creepers! The contrast with the men's bag, which isn't too strong but still there, is cool! "calm-cool" fit all in all :D
PS: Hope you guys are doing well? :)

Néhémie said...

Oh and the bag kind of reminds me on a bag I saw at TK last summer ! Dope!

Beautiful bag. I used to use a mens travel bag as my main bag but had to stop when I realised I was causing myself shoulder pain from overloading it!

Marissa said...

With a bag this stylish, I don't know if you could ever look like a runaway!

Jason said...

Travel light!

Jeanne-Ange said...

Samantha Morris said...

Don't worry about commuting everyday, you still lookin' good honey! You still have a very sexy legs and oh the tote bag! I like it for having a deep pouch which you can keep all your things in one place.
