I’m a pretty simple person when it comes to what I need to constantly carry with me in my day-to-day life, especially when I’m just out running errands.
I use a black Kate Spade saddle bag, that I bought in 2016. I love my Kate Spade purses because they are such high quality and last forever when taken care of correctly. It’s the perfect size to hold all my necessities.
As for what I actually carry, my most important item is my Kate Spade keychain wallet. When I keep my essential wallet items attached to my car and house keys, it makes it impossible for me to leave anything important at home (drivers license, credit cards, etc.) especially since I don’t take my purse with me every day. On school days especially, I just grab my backpack and my keys, and I’m out the door.
I also like to carry sunglasses with me. I don’t need to drive with sunglasses on sunny days, but it never hurts (and adds a lot to my aesthetic most of the time.) I got the pair I’m using currently from Target, and I think they are so cute!
I don’t carry a makeup bag or anything like that with me when I go out, but I do typically have my two most important touch-up makeup items: concealer and lipgloss. Right now, I’m using Clinique powder concealer (I have normal-to-oily skin) and Victoria’s Secret lip gloss.
My final item I like to keep in my bag is a handful of mints. I hate the feeling of having bad breath, and much prefer mints to gum. Despite being so sugary, they’re relatively low-calorie, so I don’t feel guilty eating one to two (or sometimes three…)
And that’s all I usually keep on me for day-to-day errands! I adjust what I’m carrying based on if I’m traveling, going out with friends, etc., but these items are usually the staple.
I hope you enjoyed reading about what’s in my bag, and check back soon for new lifestyle posts from me!
