I recently had to to prepare a bagged lunch for myself, not Scarlett. After I packed up what I wanted that noon-time, I went to grab a bag to toss it all in and then I realized all our totes are for a 5-year old, not an adult. Now, I’m really not one to care about appearances when it comes to little things. After all, you’re talking to a writer who once wore a dermatological treatment mask the color and consistency of peanut butter for 12 hours–to report on the treatment as well as the horrified reactions. In other words, I’m not really worried about showing up at a meeting with a ladybug thermos tucked into a Dora sac. Just don’t make me wear ugly shoes. That’s my threshold.
I did, however, get lunch bag envy when I saw this somewhat retro looking tote with a stamp of a spotty, pink giraffe. I thought, ” Scarlett can use this and so can I!” With a soft frame, it easily fits a water bottle, sandwich and snack containers. It has a handle as well as an adjustable shoulder strap, and closes snuggly with a zipper that encircles the bag making it easy to unload. Do you think it will be cute with my camel suede ankle boots? ($31.95, available at kolkid.ca.)
