Ah August! Holiday month. The month that politics (almost) can't reach. The sun is shining and I am off tomorrow for the west of France. What to wear is a problem. I need a handbag to put in all those things you need to carry on you: wallet, glasses, sunglasses, comb, handkerchief, passport, loose change, tickets for this or that, pens, mobile phone etc etc. But despite a bag being the logical solution I am fearful (and with good reason) of losing a bag, putting it down but not picking it up.

I would like to wear a jacket but with all those things in the pockets a jacket will bulge hideously (I bulge hideously as well but that's another problem). But an answer has come to hand! I have a cotton blouson jacket which has four deep fastening pockets which can accommodate any amount of human debris. The only trouble is that it is black and doesn't look smart. So when I want to look smart I shall have to carry it over my arm. Hardly better than a bag, but there we are.

Anyway you don't want to know this. Have good day.

Withy Brook's Avatar What a conundrum, Fennie. We women are used to carrying a bag, though when I travel I use a bum bag. Not smart though.

Fennie's Avatar I am sure Camilla will be back shortly. She has plenty on her plate just at the moment.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar There are some very smart man bags about these days, nice leather or tweed ones with cross body straps so you don't forget to pick it up again.
