summer I met my match (right around my birthday) and it was even on sale.
My version is pale grey with gold accents. I always appreciate mixed metal tones and this one goes with everything. I've owned a number of bags but this is my favorite due to the styling and the quality. The leather is buttery and luxurious. After daily use for almost a year it still looks good as new. It's also large enough to hold my iPad with keyboard case, a water bottle along with all the usual stuff which is such a plus when traveling.
(You can find it at Zappos)
*What's in the bag?*
iPhone (I made my logo case on Zazzle-great for personalized items)
iBuds (especially when traveling)
Leather Wallet purchased in Italy
love+toast hand creme-in paper flower (current favorite!)
Laura Mercier compact powder
L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer (perfect for touch-ups on the go)
*Reading glasses (a must at this stage-unfortunately!)
*hair clip or hair tie (sometimes you just have to put it up)
*Pastilles (a memento from Paris in December-almost gone) or Altoids minis
*Roller ball or sample perfumes from my Sephora obsession (this one is Marc Jacobs 'Dot' Fresh)
Rollerballs are the best for on the go scents that don't leak.
*Keys on my Toss Key chain tassel at my boutique here (makes it easier to find my keys!)
*Toss Purse Liner here (helps me organize all my goodies) and easily switch out to a clutch purse for dinner
*Mod case by Glam for aspirin, etc.
Kashi bar for a healthy snack from Target
Not pictured: Shout Wipes (for spots and drips!)
Dry roasted, unsalted almonds (my go to healthy snack)
Always hand-sanitizer (I have a bit of a germa phobia thing since I visit multiple school sites each day)
*Dry cleaning, packages to mail, returns, etc. I put in my car when I think of it, rather than when I'm running out the door in the morning.
*Receipts for returns always go directly in the return bag for easy access.
*For coupons, travel vouchers, tickets, etc. I try to go paperless and use my iPhone as much as possible. (There are so many useful apps for staying organized these days)
*I keep a running list of grocery items/supplies needed in our kitchen. I'll take a photo of the shopping list on my iPhone so I can use it myself or text it to my husband if he ends up being the one to shop.
