What’s In My Bag – Work Edition

Happy Monday! I’m starting the week with a “what’s in my bag” post. I love seeing what other people have in their bags, so I thought I’d do a work edition one.

I use the Tory Burch Perry Tote for work (raved about in my work tote comparison and review post last week). It seriously is a great work tote, because it holds all my work essentials without me filling the whole thing up.

So what do I bring to work? Everything in this picture and when I bring lunch to the office, my lunch will also go in my bag.

Sunglasses – an essential for every New Yorker (because we like to avoid eye contact on the way to work, jk, kind of).

Book – if you take the train/subway to work, bring a book! You’d be surprised how much you can read even if it’s just fifteen minutes a day.

Notebook – for me to take notes during meetings and calls. Sometimes I write down wishlists too : )

Phone – gotta have it! How else are you going to know what your friends are up to?

Laptop and charger – some people can leave their laptop at work, but I do not have a desk at work (no one at the firm does).

Keys – can’t get back home without them!

Mints – will usually pop one in my mouth after lunch so my breath doesn’t smell like whatever I ate for lunch.

Wallet – Rebecca Minkoff Molly Metro Wallet in Bleached Blue. I have been using this wallet for more than a year and love it. It’s the perfect size for my small crossbody bags too. For such a small wallet, it holds at least six cards, receipts, coins, ID, metro card, and more. If I’m going out for lunch, I can just bring my phone and wallet, which I usually hold by the keychain. I love this wallet so much that when it got stolen, I repurchased it.

Kate spade pouch – I use this Kate Spade jewelry pouch for my headphones and phone charger so the cords don’t get tangled with my other things. It makes them easy to find because I just have to find the pouch.

Lip product – whatever lip product I’m wearing that day.

Pen – gotta use this to take notes.

Water bottle – gotta stay hydrated throughout the day!

Those are all my work essentials! Of course sometimes I will bring more, like a folder or my lunch, depending what I need that day, which is the best thing about the bag. To put that in perspective, I once picked up a roll of paper towel from CVS on the way home and just put that in my bag on top of everything. That is a lot of space!

I hope you enjoyed seeing what’s in my work bag and if you have a similar post, please leave it in the comments below so I can be nosy! Thanks for stopping by : )
