I recently rotated bags for the fall season, to a new extra-roomy Kate Spade – I’m obsessed. While I was loading it up, I thought it’d be fun to share what kind of daily essentials I live by. Here’s what is in my bag:

What's in My Bag? | Everyday with Sarah

  1. Kate Spade Wallet – Over the years I’ve noticed my wallet gets bigger and bigger. I’m now up to a tri-fold that holds all the necessities: credit/debit cards, cash, coins, receipts, loyalty cards, and coupons.
  2. Ray Ban Sunglasses – I’ve got a small face, so finding the right pair of sunglasses has proven to be difficult. I found these smaller aviators and I never leave home without them.
  3. Mints – I’m a huge fan of the cinnamon altoids , but really I’ll throw in any mint that I have on hand.
  4. Perfume To-Go – Marc Jacobs Daisy is one of my favorite perfumes, I wear it pretty much daily. So having a perfume rollerball is a no-brainer.
  5. Chapstick – I’ve tried nearly every chapstick out there, and every time I come right back to Burt’s Bees. It’s a refreshing, soothing, and long-lasting chapstick that trumps everything else. I love it so much that I keep one in every room of my house.
  6. Lint Roller – Just about everytime I wear black I’m constantly needing a lint roller – our yellow lab sheds everywhere. I carry a mini roller with me, as well as store one in my car for those lint emergencies. IKEA is a great source to stock up, as well as the Target dollar section.
  7. Carry-All Pouch – I scored this gold leather pouch from Madewell (similar) a few years back. It’s perfect for holding those smaller items such as bandaids, hair ties, bobby pins, and anything else that makes up your emergency kit. It’s nice having it all in one pouch, making it easy to switch bags.
  8. Lotion – Whenever I stay at a hotel I always save those little travel size lotions from the bathrooms. They are perfect for on-the-go moisturizing.
  9. Lipstick – I’ve never been a huge fan of lipstick (they always dry my lips out), until I found this one from Julep (unavailable – these are also great). It’s a pretty pink/nude shade that helps me look more put together in seconds.
  10. iPhone – Obviously. Need I say more?
