today I’m sharing with you my handbag essentials! 🙂 and also a few bags on my wishlist 😉
I have been a fan of Rebecca Minkoff for a while now and I just love her attention to details. My favorite detail on both of my bags is the zippered edges … it adds just enough of a coolness factor to my typically casual or girly outfits.
when I’m using a smaller bag, I carry the very basic needs (for me at least) : a small wallet, a small planner, my phone, and usually a lipgloss or lipstick
when I carry a larger bag I really don’t add too much else, just instead of 1 lipstick I decide to bring 1 entire makeup bag full (this is where you insert the monkey covering his eyes emoji) 😉 my excuse is that I never know which one I’ll want to wear at any given moment. I have plenty more lipsticks at home, so it’s a constant rotation of which ones make it into the bag. I love carrying with me small sized things … A. because they’re cute and B. because they’re important, so lotion, perfume and hand sanitizer make the cut (as well as my essential oils). Having a larger bag allows me to take a bigger wallet and sunglasses too. I still have plenty of room for a sweater, binders, snacks 😉 and whatever else I think is necessary for conquering my day.
thank you for reading! I hope you find inspiration for some goodness and what I carry as my ‘handbag essentials’
