What’s In My Bag

I like seeing others’ “What’s In My Bag” posts and finally decided to create my own. In the past, I used to love oversized handbags — the ones that are so big, small children could hide inside. Then I tired of big bags and went the opposite direction with a minimal cardholder and nothing else. I’m now in the happy middle with a medium crossbody bag and just some essentials, documented below:
Celine medium box bag

L-R: Louis Vuitton Epi cardholder, iPhone 6, and Ray-Ban folding Wayfarer sunglasses in my Céline medium Box bag.

Ray-Ban folding wayfarer sunglasses

These Ray-Ban folding Wayfarer sunglasses from Sunglasses Shop are compact and perfect for travel.

Sephora makeup bag

L-R: hair tie, Issey Miyake “L’Eau d’Issey” rollerball perfume, Tom Ford “Sable Smoke” lipstick, EOS “Sweet Mint” lip balm, and Boscia “Green Tea” oil blotting sheets in a Sephora cosmetics bag.

What are the top 3 essentials in your purse?

    I love that bag! I think I need to take inspiration from this post and stop carrying so much stuff with me everywhere. My top three essentials are my sketchbook, my wallet (obviously), and clear mascara. They're every day essentials, really. Great post!

    Oh my gosh, I am the same way. You will see me basically in the same small crossbody purse because it's so convenient. I am loving your Louis Vuitton card holder! My essentials are: sample-size perfume, everyday go-to lipstick, and credit cards, haha.

    Love the Ray Bans! Folding glasses would be perfect for saving space. The thing I've found is that bigger bags seem to attract more stuff. It's impossible for me to carry a big bag and keep only a few things in it, haha.

    I always love these posts and totally on board with carrying lighter. Definitely doesn't weight you down as much, mentally as well. 🙂

    I also love whats-in-my-bag posts as well. Love how minimalistic your contents are. I am hopeless at pairing things down to the essentials and always carry around giant bags.

    How interesting you changed your preference on bag size, I've done the same thing over the past year and funnily enough in the same direction as you! Enormous handbags no longer do it for me and instead crossbody small-to-medium sized bags forever catch my eye 🙂 Your Celine bag is wonderful!

    Love everything inside + the purse 😉
