Picture the Olsen twins with their overflowing worn-out Birkins.
Or the it-girl who pulls everything and anything out of her purse.
Picture: organized chaos.
The best part is, you can be the it-girl with everything in her bag, but you can keep it super personal too. It can be super organized with pouches for everything or more chaotic where you sort of throw it all in there, but it’s not messy, and it works. Whatever works best for you.
Normally when I’m traveling, I’m the girl with the pouches and the super organized and sectioned bag, but the rest of the time, I just throw it all in there.
Because it isn’t junky. Everything is useful and hot. Like, I’m not talking about pulling receipts and pencils out of your purse. I’m talking about pulling out Dior Lip Oil and your travel size Avène Thermal Spring Water.
So, to be that girl, here’s what you need:
Starting off, you need a medium-sized bag. Bonus points if it has pockets.
These are just some cute medium-sized bags in case that’s a size you don’t own. However, I totally suggest using your favorite bag if the size requirement works.
Now you obviously need your essentials:
Now, if you noticed the pattern above, just because the items are essentials doesn’t mean they can’t be the cutest version. Like a designer key chain is chic, is it not?
It’s all about elevating!
Here are my favorite key chains if you need ’em:
And here are some it-girl-worthy wallets:
And let me just suggest some phone cases, in case you were looking for a new one:
Okay, so everything above was things that you probably keep in your purse as the bare minimum. All of these chic additions that we are about to go through are all bonus points that will make you become the it-girl with everything in her bag.
1. LIP GLOSS
An obvious essential. You can use your favorite lip gloss, but we probably have the same favs. These ones are mine. They all make you lips look so good and the don’t ever leave you dry.
2. HAND MOISTURIZER
Expensive hand cream? Yes, please.
3. HAND SANITIZER
Germs aren’t cute! But these hand sanitizers are.
4. LIP BALM
Similar to what I said about the lip gloss, these are my favorite lip balms. These are great for when you don’t want a sticky gloss and need some extra moisture.
I am so obsessed with Celine sunglasses you don’t even know. But the second option stays more in budget.
6. FACE MIST
The only one you should ever buy.
7. HAIR TIES / CLAW CLIP
Some more essentials, again feel free to use what you already have for these. We each have our favs.
My favorite perfumes. The first and last ones are my go-to.
9. TRAVEL-SIZED PERFUME
So you can always smell the best! And like the best, with the best.
10. COMPACT MIRROR
Whip out Chanel mirror, girlfriend.
Choose your character.
And there it is! What you should keep in your bag to be the it-girl who has everything in there. Stay tuned for my personal “what’s in my bag” coming soon.
