On an average work day or Saturday, I am carrying around 15 pounds worth of papers and books– add in a couple extra pounds considering I carry my gym clothes and sneakers around with me too.
I haven’t worn a high heel in over a year.
For the longest time I slung Goyards, Longchamps, clutches-purses-decorative backpacks that did not hold [anything] everything, and whatnots for the sake of preference and style.
At 26, those things no longer serve me.
Rather, the pain & inconvenience to pleasure ratio makes it so that I’ve begun to serve them.
So bye I said to wearing my 3 – 4 inch heels a whiles ago.
While I am not exiling my bags yet, what I did do Sunday was stop by Patagonia [for the first time in my life] and buy a backpack (The Refugio 28L) with awesome shoulder and back padding.
For me now and in reference to extremes, I’d rather have a comfortable body than a beautifully ornamented one– this coming from someone who deeply loves fashion.
I’d personally rather wear and apply things that preserve my posture, my youth, and support my activities in a way I see fit.
What about you?
