ysl sac du jour

I’m always interested to see what other gals are stashin’ in their purses, so today I thought I would share my own “what’s in my bag” post!

Obviously, I always have my wallet and keys.  I’m pretty good about always having some business cards on me, and my friend Miriam introduced me to this extra card book that is perfect for storing gift cards!

A mophie charger and earphones are usually buried somewhere, and I am no longer able to have cutesy cell phone covers because I drop my phone everyday, so I have a tempered glass screen protector with a bumper on it.  I almost always  have a nail file and a ponytail holder. Nothing is worse than traveling or being out and about with a sharp, jagged nail or wanting to pull up your hair and not being able to! I keep one pill bottle that has various ibuprofen, allergy medicine and excedrin migraine medicine.  And I usually have a few pairs of sunglasses (these aviators are so lightweight and comfortable).

A few lip liners, glosses and aquaphor are necessities – and if I wasn’t out, this compact would definitely be included! This is my favorite hand lotion, and I always have a handkerchief.  I actually collect them and we gave vintage hankies to all of our wedding guests!

Do you have any must-haves in your bag that I should know about? I’d love to hear! Thanks so much for reading – XO –

  1. I’m the same with with my cell phone!! I love the cute cases but can’t use them anymore. 🙁 I recently cleaned out all of my purses and organized everything – it felt so good! Now when I swap purses I can easily grab my wallet, gift card holder, cash holder and (new!!) lotion + lip + nail product holder! I was constantly being left without even a lip balm when I swapped purses and I finally solved that problem! 🙂

    1. Let’s be real – lip balm is a MUST. I will turn the car around to go back and get my chapstick!

  2. Well, I change out my purse usually daily because it has to match my outfit… haha… SO, bare necessities! Wallet, keys, lip gloss, lotion, mints, always a bottle of Tylenol and Echinacea… And, of course, tampons :/

    1. Ok truth be told I always have tampons, I just didn’t photograph them!! Ha! And I LOVE that you change purses that often. And what is Echinacea?

      1. Oh, man… So, Echinacea is an herb (Echinacea with Golden Seal is actually what I have). I use it if I start to not feel well or someone around me is sick. I haven’t had a cold in like 10+ years! It really works.

  3. Oh my gosh, I need the extra card holder. I feel like my wallet is overflowing with all the gift cards and reward cards I have in there!


  4. I legitimately ordered the extra card book after reading this. Whoever thought of creating that is a genius. They know how many cards us women hoard in our purses!! Haha. Loved this post! Thank you so much for sharing.

  5. i need that extra card book. I have like 3 wallets on my purse to carry all my cards its ridiculous. I have tons of rewards cards, gift cards, etc.
