Show and Tell…What’s in my Bag

If you know me in real life, then you know this topic is funny for me.  I’m not the best at carrying a purse.  I tend to have my keys, cell phone, and wallet in hand when I arrive but they aren’t in a bag.  I’m talking I’m carrying my keys, cell phone, and wallet IN MY HANDS.  I have no clue why I do it.  I’m working on it because I have some cute bags!  A work in progress over here, I guess.  🙂

I’m joining Andrea, for her Show and Tell Tuesday and I’m sharing, “What’s In My Bag”.  

I found the latest purse I used (on Saturday night at Ebby Lee’s dance recital) and grabbed it to take a picture for you…

For real….I had a dance recital program and a lip gloss.  #essentials

I must tell you I saw my friend, Kathryn, with this purse last summer and it really spoke to me.  I loved the “summery” look with gold accents.  I’m a big fan of the purse…apparently, I just don’t know what to put in there.  hahaha!  I have a fear of purses getting too junked up (because that usually happens to me) so in turn-sometimes my purses look like this.  #keepinitrealtoday

Similar Purse:  Smaller option here, Large option here.
Nars Lip Gloss:  Exact here.  (Mine is Sweet Revenge.  I also have Orgasm and Risky Business.)

Another shot to prove I was hiding nothing.  🙂

There you have it….what’s in my bag right now.

Don’t forget tomorrow we’re STRANDED and we’re getting to bring our THREE FAVORITE NETFLIX SERIES!

You should join us!  See you back here tomorrow!

    Oh my goodness! You are the only person I've ever met that just walks around holding the contents of a purse. It cracks me up every single time!

    I do that too, and Tim is always like "where is your purse?" Too funny! I'm loving the one you have though. That is super cute.

    You are so dang cute! I WISH my purse was as empty as yours. I agree with Shay…you may be the only person I've ever met that carries everything by hand…it's a skill though!

    I can't wait to hop over to Andrea's post right now because I know what's in her bag will be the POLAR OPPOSITE of what's in your bag. I'm thinking she'll have at least 20 items. With at least 3 that are totally random!

    Girl! I do the same thing! And it drives everyone around me crazy because I'm always laying said keys, phone, and sunglasses down and losing them! Hubs is like you have a closet full of purses! 😂

    This is amazing!!! I remember having this conversation a few years ago and being really impressed that you didn't carry a purse!!! I'm kind of jealous!!!

    This is too funny!! If I carried around only my wallet keys and phone I would lose them every day. But my purse weighs 100 pounds and could be used as a weapon. Surely there is a happy medium. #pursegoals

    You could probably scrounge up a small meal from the bottom of my purse. lol

    That reminds me of college – keys and a wallet!! That was before cell phones were all the rage!! And why am I the only one cracking up that your post referenced "orgasm"? Ha – I had to read that twice!!

    I'm the same way! But then I started carrying a Hobo crossbody (from Noddy's July sale last year) and it's so small, it only holds my wallet, keys and cell phone – so no clutter, and now my hands are free. 🙂

    HAHAHA I am impressed that you are a mom of 3 small kids and that is all that is in your purse! Do you carry a diaper bag?

    This is the best! Wish my bag was that light!

    That is hilarious! I'm the totally opposite, I have my whole life in my purse! If someone ever needs anything (pen, medicine, post-it, etc) they know to come to me! I love that bag too! xo, Kristina

    I am the same way…wallet, phone and keys but no purse! Now you just need a wallet/wristlet big enough for your phone that you can attach your keys to! 🙂

    You need a wallet on a chain. It fits your phone, keys, lipgloss and then has compartments for credit cards and cash. You can wear it cross body or remove the chain and carry it like a clutch.

      Yes! This is what I do as well! Because I use to carry it all in my hands as well! For no reason haha

    Love this! I do the same thing, but my cellphone case has a wallet attached! Cellphone and keys that's it! Also I never carry a diaper bag, it always stays in the car! 🙂

    Girl… you are so real and so funny I just LOVE your blog! I even have a "voice" assigned to you for when I'm reading your posts. I just love how simple and humble you and your blog are, it is so refreshing!!!!! I really enjoy reading your blog. That is all. Just had to tell ya! 🙂

    Haha! I love this!!! I am the same way!
    I go to the store with my 22 month old, my 9 month old, my car keys, my wallet and my cell phone. And then as soon as I grab a cart I wonder why in the world I thought it was a good idea to not bring a purse! The keys fall through the cart, the wallet gets chewed on and the phone gets dropped. And yet somehow…every time I leave, I just grab my "essentials". Haha.
