I’ve always been one to switch up my bag on a daily basis. Each outfit required a different purse. Typically from one day to the next it was never the same bag! But when I started a new job a little under six months ago I finally purchased the Madewell tote I’d been eyeing forever {legit over a year} and that all changed! Now I carry this tote with me every single day to work and sometimes for other occasions as well. It’s the perfect size for carrying all the necessities plus some. It’s also super lightweight so throwing everything but the kitchen sink in the bag still makes for a pretty light load.

A few must have items for me include multiple lips products. I’m legit addicted to applying chapstick and vaseline lip therapy a million times a day. Lotion is an absolute must for dry hands {and feet} and the occasional sunburn from the weekend. This spray lotion from St. Ives is magical! Easy to apply and super light. I also almost always have nail polish in my purse in case a nail chips {which drives me bananas} or I didn’t have a chance to do them.

I’m a snacker and don’t typically eat a large amount all at once. I also get extremely HANGRY. I go from completely full to going to die of starvation in about 2.5 seconds. Therefore granola bars and little snacks are an absolute must for me! I’m a huge fan of NuGo bars but they melt super easy so for the warmer months I stick to KIND and Odwalla bars. Slightly addicted to KIND bars recently.

How stinking adorable are these sunglasses from Illesteva? Loving the yellow shade which I 100% would not typically try out but with Ditto I’m stepping out a bit and trying a ton of different styles. Ditto allows you to try as many sunglasses as you want for only $19/month and swap them out continuously! Next on my list is a pair of Ray-Ban aviators. Use code LOUELLA for one free month. T
