While in New York over Spring Break, my mom bought me this bag as a birthday gift and I've used it so many times since then. I love that it's a bit more structure than just a tote bag as it allows you to stay a bit more organized. My bag is in the "bark" color and occasionally goes out of stock but be sure to keep an eye out for it if it's out of stock and you're wanting to order it!
My Phone- For obvious reasons, whenever I'm using my purse, my phone will be in it. My case is old Kate Spade but is pretty supportive!
My Wallet- Another no brainer, but it's important to have your credit cards and cash with you, especially when you're out and about. Mine is really old but I love this Tory Burch one that would match my bag!
Wristlet with ID- I personally don't keep my driver's license in my wallet because I keep in it a Lilly Pulitzer wristlet so it's easier to keep with me whenever I'm driving somewhere. I don't like to bring my wallet everywhere (like school) so this is the perfect way to always make sure I have my license!
Sunglasses- I love sunglasses so I always make sure I have a pair with me. I've forgotten them so many times so I usually just keep them in my bag so I don't forget!
Car Keys- I got my license in the spring of my sophomore year so car keys have been a fixture in my purse ever since then. A true essential to a purse haha!
Fresh Cosmetics Sugar Lip Treatment- I've tried countless other lip balms but this is the best! It's definitely on the pricy side but works wonders and smells ready good too!
Headphones- Definitely not something I use everyday but nice to have just in case!
Lilly Pulitzer Croakies- Sometimes, I like to have croakies on my sunglasses just to add a bit more support so they don't fall off (really helpful for when you're on the lake!). I keep these in my bag just in case I need them and I love the chiquita bonita print! I bought these forever ago (literally I got them the summer before my freshman year of high school) so they're unfortunately not available in this specific print anymore!
Eye Mask- Another just in case item that I keep in my bag honestly because it's light and I forget it's there!
Lilly Pulitzer Mirror with Blotting Papers- I got this as a gift with purchase during the fall of my sophomore year (almost two years ago!) and it's just a nice item to carry around with you in case you need to touch up your makeup!
What purse do you use on a day to day basis? What items do you always keep in your bag? Let me know in the comments!
