I did a “What’s in my diaper bag” post back in early summer, and had many say it was helpful, so I thought I could do a “What’s in my daily handbag”!
I use to be so bad about getting a new purse and wearing it until the strap was ready to break. Now, that I have several designer bags, I make myself change them out often. I try to coordinate with my outfits as much as I can, but a lot of the time (almost always if Harlie is with me) I will throw on THIS backpack and use it as my purse/diaper bag. I’ve found it easier to keep my organized “diaper bag” in the car, and take my purse inside with just the necessities out of the diaper bag. In case you missed it, HERE is the post about my diaper bag.
I’m well aware that my neon lime green wallet is totally out of season, but this mama has had ZERO time to go leisurely shop for a wallet lol. This Tory Burch wallet came in this lime color, and a neon pink. It’s held up great with a baby constantly playing with it, and how rough I am on my wallets. I’m eyeing this TB wallet in the mustard color. I also love this Kate Spade one.
I have to have something on my lips. Just like the rest of my skin and hair, my lips seem to always be dry no matter what I put on them. My favorite chapsticks are THIS and THIS. Because I have smaller lips, I tend to stay away from bold colors, and lean more on nudes and peachy shades. THIS is my go-to MAC lipstick. I recently got THIS gloss, and it’s a keeper.
You will never see me outside without sunglasses on. I can’t see without them! LOL. I’ve had THESE & THESE Tom Ford’s for 2 years now, and haven’t found any to replace them since! I alternate the two, but Justin prefers the silver ones on me best.
I use the iPhone 7 Plus. Justin got me this phone last Christmas as one of my gifts, but I have to say… I actually didn’t want the Plus. My hands are so small, I knew it would be hard to hold and use it one handed, which it is. But I didn’t want to complain so I kept it. It is nice when I’m writing blog posts, or letting Harlie watch cartoons on it. I have THIS phone case, but I’ve bought some from HERE, too.
I use to just add appointments and events on my phone’s calendar, but after having a baby, blog, and boutique, this scattered mama HAS to have a planner. I have been using my Happy Planner, and I love it! It’s so cute and fun, it makes looking at how much stuff you have planned a little more enjoyable. THESE are fun planners, too!
So I’m sure you’re like “You could have left the EpiPen & Inhaler out..” BUT I have a quick, funny (not at the time) story about these items. About a month ago Justin, Harlie, and I were out one Sunday and decided to stop and get a smoothie. I got my usual Amazon Kick and Justin got his PBJ from Planet Smoothie. For those that don’t know, I am very allergic to the entire peanut family. Luckily, I’ve never had a scare because I can almost always sniff out any nuts in my food before tasting it. So I stay in the Tahoe with Harlie since she’s napping, and Justin runs in to get the smoothies. When he gets back, he hands me mine and I take a nice big gulp. Guess what I gulped? Yep… Justin’s PBJ SMOOTHIE instead of mine! He accidentally handed me the wrong one andddd began a 8 hour episode of a terrible allergic reaction! Long story short, we rushed home, called 911 because even after using the EpiPen (first time ever) I couldn’t breathe too well, I was shaking, and started getting whole body hives. It was one of the scariest moment of my life!
What’s something you never take out of your daily bag? Do you change your handbags to match your #ootd?
