what's in my kate spade purse?




Hey y'all! Today I am showing you a fashion staple of mine- my pink scalloped Kate Spade purse. Even though this purse is such a statement, the size and style is perfect for me so I make it work year round. I love seeing what people keep in their purses, so I thought I would do my rendition of "what's in my purse?"

I purchased this beauty off of Poshmark for half the price (only $150!) I am not sure if this exact purse is still available from Kate Spade, but check out the outlets and Poshmark. It's the perfect size for me especially since I don't have to carry all that much in my purse anyways. Another note- I never take my purse to school, so some of my purse necessities are kept in my backpack during the school year. 



|| the bare necessities ||


Here it is: almost all the contents of my purse spilled out for the internet to see (besides a few medical and personal items that will be highlighted further below). 


1- kate spade wallet: you can't have a post about a purse without featuring the wallet. I love this wallet because it holds all my stuff without being too bulky or inaccessible

2- sunglasses: these are generally kept in the cup holder of my car (anyone else do that??), but when I need to these beauties go in my purse

3- headphones: I always find some use for headphones and I usually don't have them, so I try to keep some headphones either in my backpack or purse. These are my favorite, which I generally find at target for less than $10

4- L'occitane hand cream: if you need hand cream, please go to sephora and buy this one. It is so nice and leaves your hands feeling so smooth and not greasy at all. I have several of these and they are always in my purse. 

5- hand sanitizer: I absolutely hate it when I need hand sanitizer and no one around me has any, so I try to keep some in my purse at all times. This one is a Christmas scent, but it works right?

6- lipstick: whatever lipstick I am wearing, I toss it in my purse or backpack so I can reapply it. Sometimes I'll have a lot of different lipsticks from when I forget to put them back in my makeup supply. This liquid lipstick from NYX is always in my purse 

7- coin purse (purchased at a local boutique)- I hate spare change, so whenever I have some I like to put it into this little pouch so it doesn't collect at the bottom of my purse

8- gum: similar to hand sanitizer, it's always an unfortunate situation when no one around you has gum, so I try to keep some with me in both my backpack and purse at all times

9- keys & phone: definitely necessities 

10- hair accessories pouch (also from a local boutique)- I love this cute little pouch, which I keep extra hair ties and bobby pins in. Keeping little pouches like these help organize your stuff and clean up your purse

Like I mentioned above, I love little pouches. These are always impulse buys from boutiques, but they have great use for makeup, hair accessories, personal items, and money. The sparkly pink pouch is a manicure case also from a local boutique, which is handy for travel!

To the less glamorous aspect of this post, all girls have their own combination of necessities for all their personal needs. Of course feminine products are needed, but I also like to include bandaids for when my feet blister. I also always have Advil and Tums on me. And since I am a contact wearer, I keep some rewetting drops. These are useful especially at school when I'm looking at a computer all day. Finally, for all pet owners, a lint roller is a must. I keep a mini one in my bag for when my cat hair travels with me. 


Thank you all for reading! I hope this has encouraged you to keep your purse organized or given you some ideas about what to keep in your purse! 

As always,
