Good morning and Happy Easter!
I hope you had a good time over the Easter Holiday to relax and meet family or friends.
Today I’d like to know which bag you carry at the moment and what’s in it!
Let’s indulge our inner nosiness and share a peek into our daily lives via the bags we schlep around everywhere we go.
So, spill the beans – what is in your bag?
Right now I am preferring bigger bags rather than smaller, structured ones. I just love the feeling of chucking in whatever I need in the morning and might pick up along the way during the day without worrying about where to put what. (Please excuse the not ideal photos, it was impossible to get good light this week, rain storms and gales all the time.)
My bag of the season is the Madewell Transport Tote in a gorgeous colour called English Saddle which is a deep, rich cognac colour. It is big and unstructured and I love it.
Peeking inside you can see a small inner pocket on one side where I keep my phone and a lip balm, The main compartment holds all the rest.
Since the bag is open-topped I use a big black fabric pouch to keep all my things together and frustrate pick pockets. It can be zipped closed which gives me not only organisatorial advantages but also peace of mind.
Inside the big pouch there are – more pouches! This is the Fort Knox of bags, people!
I like to find things quickly and to avoid such a large bag to turn into a black hole, pouches are fabulous. I know where everything is at all times and yes, I am a bit obesssive about that. 😉
From top left in the upper row there is my cosmetics pouch, sunglass case, Smythson diary, small dark green leather pencil case holding my fountain pen and a pencil and a reusable, foldable shopping tote.
The second row starts with my cardholder (from Robert Horn), my wallet next (also Robert Horn) and finally my Kindle and iPhone.
My cosmetic pouch from Robert Horn holds essentials like powder (Dolce&Gabbana), concealer (Bobbi Brown) and lip gloss (YSL, Clinique and Fresh) and a tinted lip balm (Fresh Sugar Plum). There is also a travel bottle of perfume (Hermès Paprika Brasil), a small Nivea cream pot and my handcream (L’Occitane Lavande).
Please share with us which bag you carry and what is in it, in the comments!
