When Danielle from Sweet Nothings asked me to participate in her "In The Bag" series, I was hesitant. I mean, some days I don't even know what's in my bag and I thought the contents might bring shame or embarrassment to me and/or my family. At times I have wads of receipts, napkins, half eaten granola bars (learned this one from my mom), or handfuls of candy stored in there. However, I try to clean out my bag before going out of town and I had recently done a clean out for our Scottsdale trip. Is it scary that these are what I consider the "essentials"? Thank goodness for large handbags!
-Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffle Bag. I have to admit, part of what perked my interest in doing this post was my excitement over my new bag!
-Ray-Ban Cat eye sunglasses
-Notebook and pen to jot down my style and outfit ideas, to do lists, etc.
-My eyeglasses (Ferragamo) that I probably should wear all the time but mostly only wear to drive and watch tv.
-Hobo wallet. I've had this wallet for years and I still love it.
-iPhone. I never thought I needed a smart phone, but now I can't imagine how I survived without it. Similar to how I felt after getting tivo years ago.
-Camera case. I'm obviously using my camera for this photo, but it's always in my purse to catch any shots throughout the day. I use a really old Canon PowerShot Elph. I think it was one of the original digital cameras. It's completely outdated, but I can't give it up. Gabe's been trying to convince me to get a new one for years. Maybe I'll finally give in and put a new camera on my Christmas list.
-Essie Cuticle Oil because you never know when your cuticles will need to be moisturized.
-Mini sunscreen. This has come in handy more times than I can count.
-Dental floss. I like to be prepared.
-Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer.
-7 lip glosses. Why? One for each day of the week? I'm not sure.
