What's In My Bag: Summer Essentials

11 July 2014

Since moving back to the city I've found that my hands need to be free at all times, especially when I'm in a hurry, which happens to be pretty much everyday. So gone are the days of carrying my handbag the stylish way and on to the days of the functionally stylish crossbody. I can't say I hate it, though making room for my morning Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee (I'm obsessed) in my tiny bag while toting two toddlers to the park is quite the task, lucky for me it has a cap. 

Which brings up the question as to what on earth is in my bag, especially during the summer months, you know aside from the Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee... Now, I'll be the first to admit that on a given day my bag is likely a mess, between receipts, random toys and a pile of sunglasses. However, that's usually only on the days where I make the mistake of opting for a carryall. More room, more mess, right? So, with that being said I'm sharing what's in my carryall (more room for products, obviously) and my trusty crossbody. 

The Crossbody:
After finding this beauty on major sale at French Connection a couple weeks back it's been hard not to wear it just about everyday. It keeps things minimal and me chipper with the bright colors. 





The Carry All: 
I've been obsessed with this Reversible tote since I got it a few months back and I've found it's perfect for those days where I need everything and then some (especially my camera).
