Bostonista Loves: An Organized Purse

1209052701After sartorially struggling with a month of ambiguous weather, we’re relieved to finally ditch our (questionable) in-between-season ensembles.

However, the arrival of legitimately sunny 60+ degree days presents new challenges. As we were only recently convinced that spring might actually show up, we’ve completely failed to switch out our closet. Now, each morning requires 10 minutes of sifting through merino turtlenecks in the hopes of finding something brightly colored and cotton.

Similar problem with purses: In our attempts to swap the brown leather for something more fun, we repeatedly forget rather crucial items (our favorite lip balm! hair ties! and, uh, our wallet).

Thankfully, our inadvertently penniless days may be a thing of the past. We recently discovered the removable Very Intelligente Pocket by French company Tintamar. The removable purse insert features nine compartments for phone, makeup, wallet, and keys. And because the neutral, nylon organizer is roughly the same shape and size as our 9th grade Le Sport Sac pencil holder, it easily slips into a variety of handbags, clutches, and totes.
