My handbag holds my life. But seriously. From everything to my work schedule, to makeup for that quick touch up, it holds everything. I am more of a large handbag/tote kind of girl and ever since working at Michael Kors a few years ago, I've unfortunately become one of those bag snobs. (Insert monkey holding hands over its face emoji here haha!!) I can't help it! I've genuinely found the value of investing into an expensive handbag because they don't fall apart after a season.

The same goes for what goes in your handbag. You need to carry your necessities, but of course, keep it minimal. You don't need back problems just trying to cart around all of your crap just because it fits. Guilty! Here are some of my bag necessities and if you click the item, it will take you directly to where you can purchase your own.


Everyone needs a high quality, durable wallet. I love mine from Michael Kors. It's not too big, it's thin, Saffiano leather, and it holds SO much. I got it in gold last year, and it matches literally everything! It's perfect no matter what handbag I toss it in. 
For all of those pesky rewards cards that you have thrown in every compartment of your handbag, Henri Bendel has the best solution for you! This card case is perfect for all of your rewards cards or credit cards, too! This way, they're all in one place and you don't have to hunt through your bag in the checkout line.

Lilly Agenda & Pen

Where would I be in life without it?! Probably lost, late, or forever sleeping. I seriously rely on this heavenly book to keep my ish together. Plus, it has stickers! And, what could be better than matching pens to write your schedule with!?
I picked up this mini hair spray at Tj.Maxx, but you can always find great deals through Amazon, too! It's the perfect size for your handbag, and for quick touchups! There have been so many days at work, where my hair just needs a little pick me up, I give it a spritz, and back to work I go!
You know how people say a dog is a man's best friend? Well, dry shampoo is a girl's best friend. Hands down. Not only does it freshen up my hair on my lazy day...or days, but it helps to add a little extra volume too! 
I work in a makeup store. Of course I have like twenty lipsticks shoved in my handbag because I change my lips like ten times a day. If my lips aren't perfect, I feel like my makeup just isn't finished. 
Tortoise sunnies go with everything. I'm not the girl that has sunnies for every outfit. Yeah, I have a few pairs, but often times, these are the ones I keep with me year round. No matter what outfit I have on, they always work.

What do you carry in your bag?
