Carry it around

Sara recently tagged me to post the contents of my bag. I like to keep it simple and not get weighted down by unnecessary stuff. Normally I like to clean out my purse and wallet every few days, it might not seem like a lot but this is my bag after a few days of accumulating.
Stats, clockwise from left.
The bag: A tooled leather purse I bought in Nogales, Mexico in 2005. My mom, aunt, and I walked across the border from Mexico for lunch and I picked up this lovely bag. My favorite features are adjustable strap, zipper pocket in the front for papers and my planner, and its durability. I love that this bag isn't soft or stretchy, with no room for a mess it keeps my life simple and organized.
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens: I'm making it a point to catch up on classic books I've never read.
Ray Ban Wayfarers: OK, so everyone and their mom has these but they are sturdy, classic and tortoiseshell goes with everything I own. I might also be going blind from wearing sunglasses from the $2 bin at H&M, my worried mother picked these specs up for me as a birthday present.
ProAir Inhaler: I'm still sick, 3 weeks later. This inhaler in my purse, and my life, is taking up too much space.
Pen/Pencil/Sharpie: I'm constantly jotting things down and doodling.
Penn State lanyard and keys: Digging for my keys drives me insane and the lanyard keeps that from being a problem. Oh, and, WE ARE-PENN STATE! (I have way too much alum spirit)
Isaac Mizrahi for Target wallet: This wallet changed my financial life. I once kept cash, change, checks, and receipts wadded into a ball inside a change purse, it all changed for me when I found this baby.
Burts Bees Pomegranate lip balm: A perfect formula with a hint of color and the most delicious scent.
Planner: I would be lost without this tiny pile of paper.
Essie Mod Squad: I normally don't even wear nail polish but I was in the backyard painting my nails staving off the being home sick boredom and it must have snuck in there!
Cell: Kyocera Blitz. Its nice to be disconnected from technology, and since my phone hardly ever gets service, I try to look at it as a good thing.

Show me what you got in that bag!

  1. Love discovering what you have hidden in your bag! I'm really basic when it comes to stuff in my bag, I don't like to lug around a heavy bag:)

    Enjoy the book, what are you gonna read next?

  12. no way, i have almost that EXACT same bag! mine has a little bit of a different design, and my strap is less sturdy (cause it just broke..sad), but otherwise it's the same. i found mine at a flea market.
    and i'm also trying to catch up on my classics! just read Wuthering Heights, and in my purse right now is This Side of Paradise. Crazy stuff.

    Love this post.
