STYLE: What’s In My Bag?

As a lawyer, it is very important for my bag/purse to fit everything I may need on a given day. For the last few months I have been carrying my Dagne Dover tote, also featured here, everywhere! It has become my every day bag. It is perfect of work, and it fits everything I need, and more.

Below are photos of what you will find in my bag today. And looking into a woman’s bag is like looking into her soul, right?! I ALWAYS have my wallet, which I bought secondhand on Depop from none other than Damsel in Dior. It was SUCH A STEAL! I also always have my business card holder, my keys, a pair of sunglasses or two (you MUST protect your eyes), a variety of lipsticks, lip glosses, and a tube of Aquaphor.

One can never have too many lip products. At least that is what I tell myself. My favorite lipstick right now is from Laqa & Co. It is moisturizing, and I love the summery coral color. My favorite lipgloss is minty fresh with a touch of burgundy, from C.O. Bigelow. Ilona of Truffles and Tassels bought it for me over the holidays and I can’t stop wearing it!

What varies from day to day in my bag is the flavor or brand of seltzer that I plan to drink, and whether or not I have my laptop with me. Hello, my name is Jessica and I am a seltzer addict. My go-to seltzer brands are Polar Seltzer (my favorites are Ruby Red Grapefruit, Cherry Pomegranate, and Triple Berry), LaCroix (my favorites are Pamplemousse, Berry, and Peach Pear) and Trader Joes (ONLY in a pinch). I also occasionally keep a spare pair of flats (ie. my Tieks) in my bag if I am wearing heels.

This bag even has room to accommodate my entire workout outfit for Pure Barre. A pair of comfy stretchy pants, sports bra, stretchy top, a pair sticky socks and a water bottle.

I would HIGHLY recommend this tote for all of you working ladies out there. It will literally fit your whole life and keep you more organized!

    Love the sunglasses! And you’re so right, it’s like letting someone look into your soul!

    You’re not going to like this, but I don’t like seltzer, lol. But I do love all the different things you can fit in your bag, and the bag itself.

    Great bag! Looks like we keep practically the same stuff in our purses!

    Yes, looking into a woman’s bag IS like looking into her soul! Haha, I love it. 😉

    Your bag is gorgeous, by the way! I love the style and color. But what’s inside your bag looks a WHOLE lot neater than what’s inside mine at any given moment! What you can find in mine is about 15 tubes of lipgloss/lipstick, an empty straw wrapper, my wallet, some extra giftcards, and several receipts from Chick-fil-a. #thestruggleisreal

    Hi Jessica,

    I’m a lawyer too and we pretty much need the same things although most are universal. I love your bag! It’s gorgeous!
