What’s In My Bag {Chloe Faye}

IMG_8267

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved purses and bags. Growing up I always had some sort of purse that I would carry around with my “essentials” and to this day I rarely leave the house without a bag. Over the last 6 months or so I found myself drawn to the Chloe Faye bag. Every time I saw someone with it on Instagram I would screenshot it and any time I went into a department store I would somehow end up eye guzzling it in the Chloe section. After looking it up so many times and desperately yearning for it, I decided to take the plunge. It is quite frankly the most expensive thing I own and I couldn’t love it any more!

Being a bag lover my entire life, I have to say that I always carried the biggest bags I could find; so, the Faye is a big change for me. I usually carried my Longchamp Le Pliage tote daily so I really had to think about what my essentials are and streamline what I was going to fit into this bag. It wasn’t easy but after about a month of using this bag daily, I think I have it down.

The Faye comes in various colors, sizes, and materials, but I decided to go for the medium bag in black with the suede flap. I love black so I knew it would go with everything I own and I liked the idea of mixed materials. Once I got the bag, I knew that my beloved Marc Jacobs wallet was not going to fit in it without stretching out so I needed to find something new ASAP. I knew that Nordstrom has several slim wallets, but I couldn’t pass up the one from Target for only $5. Maybe in the future I’ll invest in something a little nicer, but currently the wallet holds all the cards I need on a daily basis plus it has a zipper for bills and coins and a little space for receipts or business cards. Then I carry my boring old keyring around. No matter how small my bag is I always fill it with lip products. The pink pouch is an old Ipsy bag that holds the right amount of essentials. I always carry Tums because you just never know. I also have a travel size Bare Essentials mineral veil pressed powder because it’s great in a pinch and has a mirror. And apparently I carry around 6 lip products every day which is totally unnecessary. I have a mini Bite Beauty lip crayon in Quince, Loreal La Lacque in Choco Laque, Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Seduction, EOS lip balm, Tarte LipSurgence, and MAC Rebel.

I hope you enjoyed what’s in my bag! xo

 

THE Courtney Kerr

Ladies and gentlemen, I met THE COURTNEY KERR. If you know me, you know that this was an epic day for me and will be a highlight of 2014.

I adore Courtney Kerr. She is my spirit animal. Most Eligible Dallas was such a guilty pleasure of mine and I have been following Courtney’s blog (What Courtney Wore) and social media since episode 1. When my best friend called me at 9am on a Saturday, I cancelled my plans for the day and started getting Courtney Kerr ready.

Courtney is just as amazing in real life as she is on TV. She was sweet, stunning and hilarious. Since meeting her, I have been seriously considering chopping my hair because her hair is perfection. Here’s what I wore…

Over the weekend, a group of friends and I went to a local winery. We had a fabulous wine tasting and a picnic on the grounds with sandwiches from our favorite market. There is no better way to spend the weekend then with best friends, good food and outside in the sunshine. Big thanks to my sister for taking these pictures of me despite my extreme awkwardness. Check out Picchetti Winery next time you want to do a local wine tasting! I recommend the 2010 Reserve Angelica and the 2013 Viogner.
