#WhatsInMyBag // Kleenex Style

day bag: Patricia Nash "Barcellona" Tooled Leather Saddle Bag c/o
-Cynthia Rowley wallet -- I love adding a pop of color to my wallets and green is my fave! I snagged this wallet at TJ Maxx last year.
-Graphic Image personalized journal & datebook c/o -- these are a must to keep me organized each week!
-I love this tiny little black bag c/o Paige Denim... it contains true essentials that any gal should have in her bag: chapstick, breath mints, stain remover wipes, floss, a mini sewing kit, a hair tie and earring backs (just in case), a bandaid, and a nail file.
-This Lollia hand creme is too good! It's like butter for your hands and moisturizes them in an instant! Love this peony and white lily scent!
-Shout wipes -- a must when you are on the go, or if you have a toddler like I do. I'm always getting stains on my outfit or hers.
-Nuance by Salma Hayek "Front & Center" -- it is seriously my go-to makeup product! It conceals under eye circles in a snap, and covers any blemishes with ease. It's a concealer and a brightener (which is genius), and I just love how much it brightens my face. Makes me look like I've had 10+ hours of sleep.
-Jolly Rancher lollipops, because they're yummy and when you are in the middle of something and nothing seems to make your toddler happy, these will.
-Hair ties (these are from Target) -Estee Lauder compact (it includes blush and bronzer, so I'm set!) -Lipsticks -- I actually carry a lot more than this, but didn't want to embarrass myself too much. My go-to lip shade is pink and right now I can't get enough of these: Maybelline Color Sensational "Make Me Pink" (my top fave, I've been wearing for years, a new fave MAC "Saint Germain", and Maybelline Shine Sensational Lip Gloss in "Sweet Indulgence".
-Kleenex Slim Pack in "Galon" -- oh my gosh, doesn't this remind you of Missoni so much?!

evening bag: Laykh "Lane" Natural Python Belly Clutch c/o
-Vintage Givenchy wallet (one of my best thrift finds -- found at Savers in Seattle) -Benefit "High Beam" the perfect highlighter for an evening out! It gives you the perfect dewy glow!
-Mini Estee Lauder "Modern Muse" -- I have this in the bigger bottle as well. It's a classic scent that's perfect for day or night.
-The perfect cuff for evening -- edge meets chic c/o Jewelry By Jurate
-The perfect statement ring: YSL Arty Ovale Ring (was a Birthday present from my husband a few years ago) -- buy HERE
-The perfect eye compact by Anastasia of Beverly Hills that will help you achieve the perfect sexy eye for an evening out! Whether you go for a natural look or a smokey eye, this palette has awesome colors and the perfect brush for applying on the go!
-Burts Bees chapstick (to smooth and moisturize before I put on my bold lip for evening) -My fave lipsticks for evenings: CoverGirl Lip Perfection lipstick in "Hot", Revlon "Orange Flip", and Lime Crime Carousel Gloss "Cherry on Top".
-Neutrogena Skin Clearing Mineral Powder -- perfect to fight shine and helps prevent breakouts!
-Kleenex Slim Pack in "Canthus". I love the chic evening feel of this print. It's a dark emerald green snakeskin. I've never seen a more stylish pack of Kleenex.

beach bag: vintage
-Staw mats (old, from Target) -- they're a nice change from the old towel and roll up perfectly in my bag
-Vintage scarf. I love to tie these around my head while at the beach or boating. It's the perfect way to keep the hair out of my face -and- look chic at the same time. I love to pair my vintage scarves with a great pair of sunnies (like my Saint Laurent Bold 1's in this photo).
-Onli Beverages. You can purchase these refreshing drinks at your local Publix or Whole Foods! They are sparkling ginseng and have the best flavors! Lemon Watermelon (not pictured) is my fave!
-Sunscreen -- Eurecin's Everyday Protection is perfect for everyday (just like it's name) and it's the lotion I use on my face whenever I'm at the beach or boating. Banana Boat sport is a must! My family and I love to swim and ride the waves, so we have to have a sunscreen that will stay on and this does the trick!
-Conair comb, because when I'm ready to head home (or grab a cocktail at the local beach bar) I don't want my hair to look ratty and tangled.
-Chapsticks. Le duh. I mean, if I can't wear a lipstick at the beach I've gotta have a chapstick! ;) Hawaiian Tropic's vanilla mint is so yummy and Maybelline's Baby Lips gives me the touch of color I'm craving with the SPF that my lips need.
-Body Mist. This one ("Tease" by VS) smells super yummy! I love to have a body mist in my bag when I leave the beach, just in case we head out for a cocktail at one of our fave local beach bars!
-Neutrogena Healthy Skin Primer. It's perfect for evening out my skin tone and giving me SPF. I feel like it makes my skin glow.
-Koozies (but of course). Can't head to the beach or boat without these suckers! The monogrammed one is c/o Rouge & Co.
-Kleenex Slim Pack in "Kismit". How appropriate is this floral print for springtime outdoors??

Well, there you have it y'all! #WhatsInMyBag for day, night, and the beach!
I always love seeing what's in other gal's bags, so I thought I'd show y'all what I carry on the regular in my bags. No matter where I'm headed, I always love to carry a pack of Kleenex tissues. Before I had my daughter I'd use them for blotting lipstick, a runny nose, a napkin, etc. But now that I have a little one I find myself reaching for them more than ever! Court always seems to have a runny nose (especially now, in allergy season), so I can go through a pack of these in a week, easy. It's nice to finally have some fashionable options to go along with my weekly routines. I mean, we all grew up with our granny's handing us a tissue (mine always did during church), but those packs were see-through and boring. Kleenex has made their tissue style so fun that I actually want to show them off! I also love how how compact these tissue packs are. They're the perfect size and the packaging is nice and thick too, so you don't have to worry about your tissues getting smashed in your purse.

Kleenex partnered with Isaac Mizrahi to create 4 designs which are intended to evoke confidence and inspiration to help you express your personal style and step out of your comfort zone when it comes to incorporating the latest trends. Exclusively on the Kleenex style finder you can watch videos featuring Isaac Mizrahi where he provides his latest style advice and shares his own experience as a design leader for more than two decades.
