We all have our essentials, the little things we can't survive the day without, which all say so much about us; not to mention the bag we keep them in. Of course I typically go for a more neutral bag, but sometimes it can be fun to carry something a little more whimsical, like this Phoebe bag in the hydrangea print.
Find out what's in my bag below, then be sure and visit Jessica at Bedknobs and Baubles, Laura at Laura Bear Design, Fran at Franish and Rose at Blonde in the City!
Sunglasses The classic wayfarers go with everything and are definitely my most flattering pair.
iPhone 4 (in a Kate Spade case) Clearly I can never be without my phone, and while this Kate Spade hard case hasn't been my favorite due to it's bulkiness and slipperiness, the cute factor out weighed the negatives.
Floss Good to have at all times, essential if you are on a date.
Hair Tie For the impromptu messy bun.
Lip Gloss/Lip Stick It's summer, so I've been wearing Avon's Coral Fixation a lot. The Clinque is a mini sized essentially clear gloss.
Safety Pins Nearly every wardrobe malfunction can be remedied with one of these babies. I used to carry around a whole mini sewing kit, but it got to be a bit much.
Measuring Tape This comes in handy more than you might think.
Mini R.S.V.P Pen So much cuter than the big ones, comes in all the fun colors.
Tissues I can not stress how important these are. I never let the pack run out before replacing it, and keep extras in my car too.
Magic Wallet Almost too small to be practical, but a good solution when carrying a small bag.
