A question I get asked a lot is “Where did you get that?” especially in regards to what I’m wearing. Such was the case when I purchased my luxe backpack from Everlane. I love the minimalist design of their Dipped Mini Backpack and I use it on an almost daily basis to hold everything I need for the day. I believe the items found on one's person say a lot about the person carrying them, so that's why I'm sharing what I've been toting around as of late.
I like to bring a variety of things with me, from books to photography essentials and fashion accessories. You never know when you'll need to be entertained, save a picture perfect memory or instantly add some finesse to your outfit. My Fujifilm Instax Share Smartphone Printer is great to have on hand for when I'm hanging out with friends and want to remember the moment with a cute keepsake. My peace sign emoji pin from Pintrill is any easy addition to any outfit, I find myself wearing it with a lot of my looks.
Another accessory I can't live without these days is my Daniel Wellington watch. It's hard not to appreciate the sleek, simple design of this timepiece. I just love the rose gold finish and classic roman numerals. For longer weekend excursions, I like to take Anthony Skincare's Fresh 5 with me. This modern skincare brand sent me a handy kit of their top five most popular products and an exfoliating soap bar for me to implement into my grooming routine. One of my favorite pieces of the set is the Facial Scrub that has Bora Bora white sand and Vitamin C in it, revitalizing my skin with every use. When I'm not accessorizing or exfoliating on the go, I'm reading. That's why I included the latest copy of Cereal magazine and In the Name of Gucci in my backpack. Crown Archetype, an imprint of Crown Publishing, sent me Patricia Gucci's memoir and I was beyond excited to give it a read while on my daily commute to work. I've found In the Name of Gucci to be a fascinating drama-filled account of Patricia and Aldo—the icon accredited to creating the luxury eponymous brand—Gucci's tempestuous lives and epic legacy.
I have just about all of my bases covered with these items in my bag, whether I need a little bit of moisturizer before a night out or a good read while making my way to my next summer destination. Next time you see me sporting this Everlane essential, you'll already have solved the mystery as to what's in my bag.
