Hello friends! I’v been seeing the “what’s in my bag” post cycle around the blogosphere for a couple years now, and have finally gotten around to doing it myself! Yay! I think one of the best ways to find out a lady’s style is to look at their purse. Is is a classy leather tote? A saggy, trendy hobo? A designer handbag? Is it bogged down in keychains, or clean and left to stand on it’s own two feet? Ready to find out more about my purse? Let’s go!
I own a simple, faux-leather cross body that I thrifted last year. I predominately use it for my Fall/Winter wardrobe, and the color of the leather goes with everything! I think it’s a color that just naturally sticks in my brain when I go shopping, so I always pick out things that match it 😉
Now what exactly is in my purse? (Left to right) small notebook (anthropologie) & pen (gift), tooled leather wallet (I was searching everywhere for one of these, and finally found one at a garage sale for next to nothing! Score!), sunglasses (JCPenny), Kleenex (necessities people. I usually try to carry 2, so that if I forget to restock my purse, I’m covered 🙂 Kleenex insurance!), manicure set (Revlon), Dr. Scholl’s Blister Defense stick (who likes blisters, anyway?), whistle, pillbox, Orbit gum (Yes, I have braces. Yes, I carry gum in my purse. Yes, it is for necessity, not pleasure ;), compact (gift), tin of hair necessities, Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Cherry (LOVE that stuff!), EOS lip balm in Summer Fruit (Yes, I know it’s not Summer. I’m not the type to spend extra bucks on a new “seasonal” flavor. No biggie, right? ;D), Mary Kay hand lotion.
