What's in My Bag: School Edition

I love seeing what other people carry around in their bags. It reminds me of when I was little and I would go over to a friend's house and be mesmerized by everything they had in their room. I could have looked around for hours. I'm sure that's super nosey of me, but oh well!

For a school tote, I carry a large Longchamp in pink. I feel as if it's kind of like a Mary Poppin's bag...I just keep putting more and more stuff in it and there's always room.


1. Vera Bradley Pencil Pouch in Mocha Rouge - This thing is packed. I keep every color highlighter and pen, backups of my favorites (see #3), my flash drive and an eraser in here.

2. Makeup Bag - I believe this was a freebie from the La Prairie counter at NM, but it works. I keep all the essentials in here: Advil, hair brush, compact, make-up blotters, and OF COURSE, hand sanitizer

3. This is pretty much everything that I keep in the little side pouch of my bag. Headphones are necessary for trips to Starbucks or the gym, and I always have at least one (usually more) chappystick on me. This one happens to be Burts Bees Pink Grapefruit, which is amazing. As I mentioned earlier, I keep my favorite pens tucked in the small pocket of my Longchamp in case I need to reach for them quickly. (You can find them here, here and here). And last but not least, a pack of gum. If I have the choice, I prefer mints, but I've been having a hard time finding my favorites, so this works as a substitute.

4. Lilly planner and small notebook. I honestly don't think it's possible for me to go anywhere without my planner, and it's nice to have a journal to jot down thoughts, ideas and lists whenever they come to me.

5. Macbook

6. Burberry Wallet (From their Christmas collection a few years ago)

7. iPhone with Tory Burch hardshell case (The exact case is no longer available, but there are so many to choose from here!)

8. School ID, Apartment Key and CTA pass
