What's in My Every Day Bag?

 Happy Friday everyone! Hope you had a wonderful week! I wanted to get one more outfit post up this week but DC has been hit with pretty bad weather and I  haven't seen the sun all week.
 Anyway--I have seen a couple other bloggers do this type of post and have also seen a ton of YouTube videos so I thought it would be fun to do it myself! Right now, I am carrying the Tory Burch Robinson Double-Zip Tote in Luggage as my every day bag. I have had this bag for about 2 months now and I have been LOVING it. I love the size and also love that it has a crossbody option. I typically carry it on my arm but when I'm shopping or bringing in groceries I love using the crossbody strap. Tory Burch is running a sale right now for 30% off and this bag is included so if you're interested, make sure to check out her site!

I always carry a lint roller because my pup sheds a whole bunch! He is a Golden Retriever mix so needless to say my clothes are always covered in his fur. I also always carry a book with me. I know it's the 21st century and most people use kindles or their ipads but to me, there's nothing like getting a new book! I have been really into Jane Austen lately and just started Sense & Sensibility for the first time. On to the more interesting items:
I love that this bag fits my Erin Condren planner. I may end up doing a whole separate post on my planner but all I'll say for now is I really LOVE this planner and all the customization options!
 This Tory Burch cosmetics bag fits so perfectly in any tote and fits all the make-up I like to carry around for touch-ups. I looked at Sephora's site and didn't see this little Laura Mercier pot but I LOVE it for on-the-go. It has two concealers and the setting powder on the bottom so if you have a blemish pop up or if you're getting oily or creasy throughout the day this is perfect to have. I also carry blush and whatever lipstick combo I'm wearing that day if I need to reapply.
Another awesome product I would recommend is this Tangle-Teezer. People make fun of me all the time because I used to carry around a full-sized brush in my bag. I have super thick hair so I need to brush it a couple times a day otherwise it can look a little crazy. This tangle-teaser fits perfectly in my bag but I also always use it to brush out curls when I curl my hair.

Last but not least, I always carry my Ray-Bans with me and these Karen Walker sunglasses I got about a month ago. Both of those sunglasses go with every outfit! Linking up with Fashion Friday.

Hope you enjoyed this post--have a good weekend!


  1. You have a lot of things in your bag :-) I have only phone, walet and lipstick ;-)

  2. Such a fun post girl! I always carry two sunglasses for some reason because I never know quite which one I want to wear that day, ha ha! I have admired your Tory Burch bag in some of your posts and one has been on my wish list for a while now, I love the color! I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of smiles, lots of love, and lots of happiness!

    1. Thank you!! Tory Burch is having a big sale right now...just saying! ;) Have a wonderful weekend too!!

  8. I feel ya, it's been super rainy and gloomy outside because of the hurricane that's been stirring up around parts of the northeast. I hope it passes soon, so the sun can come back out :)

    As for this post, I loved it, Kelly! Your bag is so beautiful and it's one that I've been eyeing for a while.

    I totally understand you about the books. There is nothing like holding a book in hand and flipping the pages that a Nook or iPad can't give you! I've also heard a lot of great things about that planner, so I look forward to reading your thoughts on it!

    I hope you have a wonderful day and start to your weekend, pretty lady!



  9. Firstly, I love this bag! What a classic piece. I'm also loving that mini makeup bag. The pattern is beautiful!

  10. Lovely post :)
    I'm in love with your bag

  11. I need that tangle teaser for my hair! It can be a mess if I went all day without brushing it. The Karen Walker sunnies are so cute and the case is just as chic!

  12. Love the bag and the sunnies! so, so, so cute!

  13. What a beautiful bag - love how organized you are as well! I really should start carrying a lint roller with me as well as I always have cat hair all over me from my two babies. I love them both, but cats produce so much hair and it is never ending! Love the pattern of your tangle teaser as well - never saw that one before but it is so lovely. I just got a new one - bright pink - and now I wish I had gotten the one you have. Smart to always carry your planner with you as well. I try to always have a notebook around, as my calendar is in my phone.

  14. I almost did this post today but decided to save it for next week! I LOVE YOUR THINKING! haha! My mom was just telling me about the weather! My family lives outside of DC and originally I am from there too! Therefore, I totally get the bad weather statement! But I am loving this post! I heard Laura Mercier has really nice setting powder, how do you like it?

    P.S. Next time I am back in MD, we should do a collaboration! <3

  16. Love the Karen Walkers! I bought my first pair a while ago and have been wearing them almost every day! They are so worth the investment.
