it’s no secret that i’m a fashion lover, but my biggest problem is the cost. i’m not rolling in it, and i need to worry about looking fab on a budget. my friend Jaclyn does just that. this little newlywed shares her sweet style secrets for less on Mrs. Jaclyn Leblanc.
today she opens up her purse (Phillip Lim – to die for) and lets us know where to shop her essentials.
Thank you so much to my sweet friend Laura for asking me to guest post while she’s on her Toronto vaca! Here’s my contribution for her fabulous part & parcel series. I’m always curious what other girls carry in their bag so I hope you like it! xo
1. The bag.
I woke up ridiculously early and ran to my nearest Target to scoop up this Phillip Lim tote. It’s a great neutral color and is perfect for carrying ALL OF THE THINGS. Which you’ll see below.
2. My iPhone + charger.
I think this is a given for me and just about everyone else :) Could not live/work/survive without it, especially since my job is in social media and my husband and I are doing long-distance right now (he’s in Toronto and I’m in Charlotte, NC for now). It’s my lifeline!
3. Macbook Air.
This gets carted around with me more often than I’d like to admit, so thank you, Apple, for creating something so lightweight. Especially when traveling, it’s a lifesaver.
2. My wallet.
This particular one from Kate Spade is on my wish list! Ballet slipper pink and a bow? Sold!
4. A nail file.
I am desperately trying to stop biting my nails (I did for our wedding and then lost that willpower somewhere) and keeping one of these on hand is key.
5. 2014 planner.
Who else has a weakness for pretty paper? I picked up matching ones for my sister and I in Lilly Pulitzer a few months ago! The bright colors are fun and make it easy to find in my enormous bag because lets face it – I can be a slob.
6. My sunglasses.
Even though when I’m in Toronto I hardly ever get to see the sun. Sorry, but true.
8. Ginger chews.
I deal with motion sickness a lot and these help more than anything else I’ve tried. Ginger is amazing for your belly, but that’s another blog post…
Headphones, bobby pins, hair ties, earrings, gum, mints, tissues, camera, water, vitamins – these can be lost/found at any given time in my bag!
what’s in your purse?
