What's in my Hobo bag

Today I am linking up with four fabulous bloggers for a "what's in her bag" post with Hobo!

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.

  16. I love these posts. Your bag is lovely and you are very organized, I'm pretty bad when it comes to bag it's full with lots of useless things and a lot of lipsticks as well. I love sometimes through the day change my lip color. You look very pretty in your look.

  25. You've got such a practical collection of things in your bag, Lyddie! I like that. I keep about the same few things in there along with a book.

    That dress fits you perfectly. I love the slight brocade pattern embossed on it... oh la la!

    you don't have to tell me abt the handiness of measuring tape. i use mine all the time!

  29. what a fun post! the hobo is adorable, and you look so cool withe the dress + denim!

  30. What an adorable bag! It's the perfect size to carry around essentials but not load up with extra stuff.

  31. Oh my goodness, that Kate Spade case is so adorable and your bag is beautiful as well:) Happy morning, sweetie.

  32. I agree, it can more fun to carry something more whimsical :) ! Love this outfit! super pretty and chic!

  33. Cute dress and bag! I think a measuring tape needs to be in my bag too. I'm forever trying to figure out my size when I shop at certain stores. It'd be nice to just measure without trying on, lol.


  34. This bag is so cute! I'm into the updated 90s-inspired feel of this look... I'm pretty glad the 90s is coming back. Some of the fashion was so much fun!
