Jumpin' on the Bandwagon-What's in MY bag?

I am seriously loving all of the "What's in Your Purse?" blog posts, so I'm jumpin' on the band wagon and showing you mine.  What is the fascination behind this?  Gosh, I'm obsessed!  Maybe we should start "what's in your refrigerator" posts - I'm sure I could scare some people to death with all the junk in ours.  I love it when I see people doing this - so many people have such cute stuff.  Well, mine is not that great, but since I'm stalking yalls, I guess I should share!!!


1.  Classic Speedy LV - I know, I know - Every 14 year old girl at the mall seems to have this bag now, but I still think its a classic.
2.  Michael Kors - I mostly carry around this Michael Kors bag that I got this past fall - its black leather, so it goes with what I'm usually wearing
3.  Fun tissues - never know when these will come in handy!
4.  Car Keys - Yes, I'm a Honda gal.  I told T when we have kids I'll need an upgrade to an SUV, and he informed me that he will never sell my Honda.  He'll probably make our future children drive it - poor things!  I'll admit, they are great cars!  I need a new key chain - I've been eyeing some on etsy that I may purchase soon.
5.  Brush/Mirror compact - these things are awesome.
6.  Hair Assessories - Use these daily, my hair always ends up...up!
7.  Michael Kors wallet - my Christmas present from T - Love it.
8.  Excedrin - a serious must
9.  Cosmetic bag - I've had this forever.  I've been looking for a new bag, but just haven't found one I love yet.
10.  Bath & Body Works White Citrus Lotion  - Love this scent
11.  Bills for a new magazine I ordered - Erg.
12.  Why do I have 3 pairs of sunglasses in my purse?  Seriously?  These are Black Ray-Bans.  My brother gave me these and I love them.  I feel so cool.
13.  Black Chanels - I've had these since college.  They have the big C's on the side, which I used to think were sooo cool.  I rarely wear these, but they are some of the best sunglasses I've ever had because they are huge - they block out all the sun!  Yes, those are croakies - I know, weird, but I'm a prep at heart.
14.  Brown Dior Sunglasses - wear these most in the summer


Make-up Bag Contents


1.  Revlon powder - I have the oilest skin ever so this is a must
2.  Nail File - Lord, I hate scraggly nails, so this is a must as well
3.  Tide Stain Stick - these are AWESOME
4.  Pill Box-I'm such a grandmother
5.  Chapstick - Love
6.  Revlon Lip color - I finally found a color I love.  Pretty pink thats not too overwhelming!
7. Bath & Body Works White Citrus hand sanitizer - no germs here!
8. Fresh mini perfume - This came with the perfume I got for Christmas, so cute and convenient
9.  These are some band-aids I bought in Paris over our honeymoon.  Of course, I couldn't wear comfortable shoes on my honeymoon in Paris.  I needed to look tres chic.  So dumb.  My feet were dying after the first day...

so I went from this...

Tres Chic! 
well... sort of...


to...
not so much...
yeah, those are New Balances that I've had since college...How Lame
and yeah, I have a Long Champ that I use, too - It's a glorified suitcase!  It can hold everything!

Anyway, so thats my bag.  I hope yall will consider sharing yours because I'm so eager to stalk y'all! 
Ha!

Also, I wanted to show yall my "go-to" outfit.  I was running...suuuriously late the other day and so I just put something on quickly and I thought, "Good grief, you wear this outfit a lot!"  So here it is...

Old Navy plain V-Neck T 


with...

Black cropped skinny jeans from Old Navy
Got these for 13 bucks!  Yes, love a deal!


and I throw on...

a Forever 21 trench coat
This looks way more expensive than it actually is...
Mine is the shorter version...It hits just below the waist


with...

drumroll please...

these flats...
I bought these for 20 bucks at a factory outlet and I've practically lived in them for the past 4 years...
I wish I had bought 3 pair.  It will be a sad day when these need to be retired...


Now, jewelry, in my humble, humble opinion, can make an outfit...

So its a must as well...

Well, that's it from me.  Happy (almost) Friday!
What's your "go-to" outfit and what's in your purse...or frig? :)

ok, I think I just posted a comment and forgot that darn encripted word thingy. I hate that thing. Anyway what I believe I said was.... CUTE, CUTE, post Katie!! I haven't read any other what's in my bag posts! You won't be seeing one from me anytime soon either - graham cracker crumbs, diaper cream, Lego figures - you get the idea, SCARY, SCARY stuff. I have the exact same pair of flats and wear them WAY too much (at least when snow isn't on the ground and temps are above freezing!) Have a great weekend, girlie! xo, T

You are adorable! And, when you have to retire your leopard flats, I highly recommend a pair of Bandolinos--very cute and comfy. I found mine at Off Broadway, but I am sure Zappos has them, too.

I love looking in peoples purses! I have a louis too and often wonder how these teenagers afford one! Love your go to outfit! Leopard is the perfect accent to any outfit. My go to outfit is skinny jeans and a loose blouse with knee high boots orTory burch flats! You look so cute on your honeymoon!

Cindy said...

I just did this WIMB post too. I totally agree with you on the LV Speedy bag... It is an absolute classic. I la la love mine. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. xo Cindy

I love these posts! Is it weird that I think it's fun to see what's inside someone else's purse? Oh, well! My purse sounds a lot like Tessa's. It's not nearly as cool as yours. I love the photo of you in Paris! You must do a Honeymoon series after you complete your wedding series. I've never been to Paris and have always wanted to go. By the way, great flats. You are so chic!

Natalie said...

So fun - I love seeing inside someone's handbag. Nothing interesting in mine - maybe I will show soon...of course I need to clean it out first!
Love those flats - must find them soon! Thanks for your comments on my blog! You are very sweet!

I love what's in your purse posts. Three sunglasses is a lot, it must be sunny where you live :) but your go to outfit is so stylish no wonder you wear it a lot. My go to outfit is jeans and tshirt as well paired with high heels. I'm short so it makes me feel tall.

Katie!
I had so much fun reading your latest post. A Louis is always classic. I love mine to pieces, except my Louis tends to be a catch it all for everything and the kitchen sink by the end of the week. And I'm like you, I always carry around at least two pairs of sunglasses, both Ray Bans (aviators and wayfarers). I also need to invest in some croakies. Annnd...can't go wrong with Honda. I love my Honda (affectionately known as Lola and when the music be bumpin', Club CR-V).

Your go-to outfit is tres chic and classic. You always are. :)

I love stalking what is in someone's purse!! You hold a lot of stuff in yours!!

I love your go to outfit! I definitely think that jewelry can make or break the outfit. The girl in the trench coat is from ANTM! I remember her!! Haha!! Super cute blog!!

Vanessa said...

Very fun post. It is fun to see what everyone has in their handbag and what they like to use. Your go to outfit is very cute. I have some leopard flats too that I love. Too bad in Michigan there is so much snow they have been replaced by my go to boots! Your day of biking sounds like a dream! We are supposed to get around 10 inches of snow tomorrow night! I'm hoping for a snow day with my boys! Have to go stock up on hot cocoa! Hope you have a great day!
