what's in my bag? // kaitlin elaine

it's no secret i am 'girly' in every possible way of being a girl. so it would make sense i carry my bag with me everywhere i go, and it of course contains up to 15 different lip products at any given time, among other ridiculous items. necessary? no. excessive? yes.

i can't help it! stuff accumulates until... well, until i think i've lost something and i realize it is inevitably somewhere in the infinite abyss known as my purse. i feel like mary poppin's sometimes. if only i could fit my umbrella in there...

the bag i am using is a black leather vintage coach bag i found at goodwill during a 50% off day. it was priced at $29.99 and i scooped it up for half! those are the best days to splurge on more expensive thrifted items.

it's actually pretty embarrassing how much, for lack of a better word, crap i carry around with me.
but i have to admit, i do use more than half of these items daily while out and about.

what are some must-have items you can't leave out?
