What's In My Purse?

Hello lovies!!

Sorry I have been M.I.A. for a while. We just moved and things have been really hectic. But I am finally getting back into the rhythm of things so I am back for good! Also, I want to apologize in advance for the quality of some of the pictures. Our new new apartment doesn't have that much lighting yet.

Today I wanted to share a post of what's in my purse! This is a little scary because I tend to throw everything in my purse because it's huge and for some reason I like to carry everything with me but let's get started.

So right now I am using my Steve Madden Bstolen Satchel in the burgundy-ish color. This bag is amazing! I can fit so much stuff in it, the color is muted enough that I feel like I can wear anything with out it clashing, and it has two different types of straps. There is the long shoulder strap for easily toting it around

and two smaller straps to hold the bag. The shoulder strap hangs nicely and is out of the way.

On the back of the back there is a small zipper pouch with cute little tassels on the zipper.

This is my quick-access pocket. I usually toss my phone and headphones in here and anything little that I will need access to quickly. When I'm working I put a few bags of green tea in there because I love sipping on it at my desk.

The inside of the bag has two small multi-function pockets which I tend to not use and another zipper pocket.

 In the zipper section I keep a few feminine products so I'm always prepared and a ball point pen for easy access.

Now my favorite thing about this bag is the big open area where I keep quite a few things. But the bag still holds its shape. So in this compartment I keep my Lilly Pulitzer agenda, a pen pouch where I keep my planner utensils like highlighters, colored pens, and white out.

My Savvycents wallet which I have had for a coupled months but wish I would have ordered it long ago. In here I keep my debit card, cash, (Matt and I are working to be debt free so we don't have any credit cards and use cash for most things) and my different rewards and gift cards.

My handy dandy Betsey Johnson umbrella which comes in handy quite a bit with our rainy weather here.

And lastly a little makeup pouch for my loose things. I don't typically carry much make-up with me but I have my go to MAC Studio Fix Foundation and usually an eyeliner pencil. I also keep my pill holder in here which holds all of the vitamins I take on a daily basis, Burt's Bees chap stick, a nail file, hand lotion and ELF oil blotting sheets.

I am very pleased to say that when I grabbed my purse to take pictures for today's post there was no junk in it!! This isn't usually the case so I have to celebrate the small things.
