Ever see one of those “what’s in my bag?” posts and wonder how people carry so much around? The kitchen sink syndrome is real – I’m so guilty of toting 4 lipsticks just because, random receipts, thank you notes, a stamp set (don’t ask), and everything other than what I really need. Well, hotter weather calls for a lighter load and I’ve managed to rid my bag of nonsense. Bonus? My back and shoulders thank me. Especially when I’m melting on a 110° NYC subway platform and it’s too hot for clothing. And the only bag you want to carry is a bag of ice. But I digress.
What’s left are the essentials – one of the books I’m currently reading (sidenote: it’s a crazy good page-turner), the only lip balm I’ll ever need, my block out everything sunglasses, playing cards (you never know!), charcoal blotting papers as to avoid looking like an oil-slick, and the genius bronzing oil that makes my skin glow. And of course, my jolt of caffeine in the form of the Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee. Yep, I’m still buying these by the 6-pack, and I grab one on my way out of the door.
Details: Marni Tote (sold out but similar here), Westward Leaning Sunglasses, The Garden of Last Days novel, Dior Creme de Rose lip balm, Sephora Blotting Papers, Theory 11 Playing Cards, Carol’s Daughter Gelee de Soleil
