Am I weird for wanting to see what type of bags people carry and what they put in them? Seriously one of my favorite types of blog posts/videos are reading/watching about what’s in other people’s bags. I actually shared what’s in my bag years ago, but a lot has changed since then, so it’s time for an updated post!
My go-to bag lately has been my Saint Laurent Cabas Classic Y in medium. I never got into big bags before, but I guess the older I got, the more I started carrying with me. On top of the size, the color also makes the bag very versatile.
- iPhone 5S
Seriously can’t leave home without this. It’s a little sad how reliant we are on technology nowadays, but I’ll be the first to admit that I’d be a mess if I didn’t have this with me at all times. I’d sooner forget my keys then my phone.
- Saint Laurent “Classic Y” Wallet
Can you tell that YSL is one of my favorite brands? ;) Longer wallets are a must for me because I carry around a bunch of store credit cards. The great thing about this one is that it can double as a clutch – I can actually fit my phone in there!
- Large scarf/shawl
You never know when it’ll get chilly, and a jacket is just too heavy to carry around. I try to match my scarf to my outfit if I remember, but hey, I’d rather be mismatched then freeze my butt off.
- A pair of sunglasses
I love collecting sunglasses so I can match them with my outfits. These white/gold Gucci sunglasses has been my go-to pair for this summer :) I usually keep them in the case, but for the sake of the photo I took them out.
- Dior Addict Lip Glow
I always have some sort of lip gloss/lip stick in my bag, usually the one I’m wearing that day. It just so happens that the Dior Addict Lip Glow was the one I wore most recently.
- A pen
Like the scarf, you never know when you might need one. One thing on my wishlist is a Swarovski pen, and until then, my glittery white pen (gift from a friend) will do just fine.
- A “makeup” bag
My mom loves sewing and crafts, and this little sheep bag was one of the things she made me. I use it to carry some personal essentials like blotting paper, compact mirror, hand cream, lip balm, eye drops, facial spray, and pocket tissue.
Depending on the weather, I might also carry a little umbrella or a small bottle of water. Sometimes I’ll also carry my planner if I know I’ll need to jot things down. For the most part though I try to limit what I carry to the necessities, and use the extra space for things I might buy. Why? Because they charge 5 cents per bag where I live, yes, even when you shop at the mall.
Now it’s your turn! I’d love to see what’s in your bags, so if you have a WIMB post, do share!
