I have always been so interested in what other people carry in their bags. I’ve always thought having a peak into someone’s purse was almost like having a peak into what is going on in their minds. I’m definitely the kind of person to want to carry absolutely everything I own with me, regardless of where I am going. A 15 minute trip to the grocery store? I might need six chapsticks. A 2 day trip to Vegas? Still the same essentials.
I used to stick to smaller crossbody bags because I found them easier to be hands free, but ever since I got this Kate Spade bag I have been converted to a bigger bag kind of girl! I hate carrying a smaller bag because I typically forget/ am not able to fit in at least something and that drives me crazy. With this bag, it’s the perfect size so I can carry around everything I want and it still looks chic!
Here’s what I’ve been carrying around..
Makeup Bag (gift from Kate Spade): I generally avoid carrying around too much makeup- probably because I don’t wear that much to begin with! I stick with carrying around my essentials for lip products- just a couple with light color depending on what I am wearing that day! I have my favorite Too Faced lipstick (in Naked Dolly), Sugar lip balm, Rosebud salve, and a Tarte sample in a basic color. I also always carry around hand sanitizer (you never know what you might touch!) I usually have a hair tie or two in my bag, just as extras. Right now I also have a rollerball for my favorite perfume- Bobbi Brown Beach! I use this to freshen up throughout the day if I think my perfume is wearing off.
Notebook: I am currently carrying around this Kate Spade notebook! I love having a notebook on me, and this one is the perfect size! This notebook is perfect for jotting down notes at work or on the go!
Wallet: For two years, I rotated between a few (very small) wallets. After realizing my zippers were busting because I couldn’t fit anything else into them, I decided to upgrade. I purchased this wallet and I am OBSESSED. I love having everything I need always on me, no more leaving cards at home because they won’t fit!
Gum: Gum is an essential, always.
Sunglasses: In my smaller bags, carrying sunglasses was always such a hassle. Either I had to leave the case and carry them around or just forget them all together. I’m so glad now I can always have mine on me and not have to worry about where I’d put them or suffer in the sun! Right now I’ve been wearing these from Tory Burch.
