Recently I flew to St. Louis to be with my family for a few days. Over the years I’ve gotten really good at paring down what to take with me on short trips — especially if I’m carrying my suitcase onto the plane. My goal is usually to make my purse as light as possible. It’s much easier to roll a heavy carry on bag, than to carry a heavy purse. I also try to preserve my bags and not put too much unnecessary stress on them. This trip I was able to pack really light and put my laptop and the book I’m reading (Gone Girl) in my suitcase, so my purse was rather light. Typically I only travel with a bag that has a long strap just for the ease, but this lovely kate spade new york beau bag recently came into my life (thank you kate spade) and I just want to carry it all the time.
What I packed in my kate spade beau bag (gifted):
Warby Parker Everett Sunglasses / Tom Ford Abandon Lip Shine / Tom Ford Lip Gloss in Tawny Pink / L’Occitane Hand Creme / Blink Eyedrops (I always have eyedrops with me)/ Travel Perfume – DC scent (This travel spray won’t get you in trouble with TSA and it smells AMAZING!) / Scarf, old (similar) / Passport / kate spade business card case & business cards
