My purse of choice is a dark purple satchel from Urban Outfitters. The straps are kinda falling apart but this is my favorite bag. It’s not too bulky and the color surprisingly goes with a lot of outfits. It’s going to take a lot for me to get rid of this one!

(1) Bobby Pins. I always have these. Everywhere.

(2) Work Badge. If I forget this when I go to work, it’s a giant hassle to get through security. Sometimes I panic a little when it’s not in my purse. haha

(3) Anthro Member Card. If you haven’t signed up for one of these yet, I encourage you to do so! You get %15 off on your birthday and other coupons the more you buy. Plus you get the catalog in the mail which is full of inspiration!

(4) Clutch Wallet. Love the pretty design and the gold interior and it was a birthday present from Dustin :) I carry my bank cards, change, receipts, and my ID in it.

(5) Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Lip Color. I like this product because it stays all day but its not super heavy.

(6) Liplicious Tasty Lip Color in Cranberry Cocktail. Tastes yummy and it’s fun to put on. I sometimes wear it over the Colorstay for gloss.

(7) Keys. I try to keep these in my purse but for some reason I’m always searching for them. My husband and friends can testify. haha My sister gave me a pretty Coach keychain that I have on it too.

(8) Thrifted Sunglasses. An essential in Arizona.

(9) Mini Tape Measure. Very handy to have. This one is branded by the US Forest Service where my husband works.

(10) Teasing Comb. My hair is really heavy so throughout the day it will get flatter on top which means it needs a little boost. This one is from Sally Beauty Supply.

(11) Business Cards. Duh.

(12) Banana Boat SPF 45 Lip Balm. This is my favorite chapstick because it keeps my lips smooth and it smells REALLY good.

(13) Palm Pixi. I love the size of this phone, it has a touchscreen and a keyboard and I can check facebook when I’m not at home. hehe

What’s your one must-have in your bag??

  1. Hey Kelly! Ever since you added me on Twitter, I’ve been checking out your blog updates. Based on this post, I have to come to the conclusion that we are a lot alike! Haha. And you’ve inspired me to do this post as well. So, you’re in Tucson, eh? I’m in Scottsdale, but will be in Tucson for the Spoon concert in a couple of weeks. Maybe we could meet up?! Love your blog. :) Sara

  2. I don’t think people would believe me if I wrote down all the things I have in my purse. I’m one of those people that has to have everything with them. lol.

  3. DIAPERS! Haha.. no but really. I’d looove to see your business cards more up close- they look really cute.

  4. I have some of what you have, but I also have old receipts, gum wrappers, and crumbs. (not sure where the crumbs came from – I don’t carry food in my purse-YUK!) And since I am so old-school, I have a checkbook in my purse. Maybe it’s time for a new purse…

  5. What a great set of items to have in your purse. As you know, my badge is often NOT in my purse … which causes some problems. My must-have is definitely anti-bac spray from Bath and Body Works. I am a little paranoid when it comes to germs in public. I like the lemon-scented one.

  6. i was just thinking i should do a purse post soon…don’t worry i still will. also, i have a couple ideas to discuss/brainstorm. :)

  7. I have to have my iPod, cell phone, wallet, and a cloth to clean my glasses :)

  8. When I first saw the pic, I thought your business card logo was something from Harajuku Lovers. The H looks similar. I love Gwen! I keep track of my keys by hooking them to a carabiner and then to my purse strap. I have extras if you want one. Not the best aesthetically but it works for me. My 1 purse essential? I think I have 5: phone, lipgloss, ID, tissue, gum, pen, shades…more than 5. Sheesh.
