Welcome to Blogmas Day 22! Today I’m going to be doing a What’s In My Bag; Winter Edition. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done one of these and I think they’re quite fun, so let’s get into it.
This is the bag I’m currently using. It’s from H&M, it has a shoulder strap, which is detachable, plus the two handles on top. The main compartment is in the middle and on each side of that is a large compartment with a gold zipper on top. There is another smaller zip pocket on the inside and two more small pockets. One of my favorite things about this bag is the gold hardware, and that includes four studs on the bottom. And one of the standout things to me was the black lining along the outer edge of the bag. I think the color is officially called Light Taupe and if you can still get this bag, I believe it also comes in black and one other color, maybe white but I’m not 100% sure.
Starting with beauty, I have a couple things that I have to have in my bag during the winter months. The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and Vanilla Softlips are two things I know I’ve mentioned many times but I do love them. And the other is the Bath and Body Works Winter White Woods hand sanitizer. I love this scent, it’s very wintery but without being overly sweet and in your face. It almost has a masculine quality to it and those scents can be quite refreshing. I always have lotion and hand sanitizer in my bag, but the smells change as the seasons go on.
Moving on, I have a couple of fashion items. The first is a pair of gloves. I keep a black pair on me, even though I have other colors, because these are the only pair I have that I don’t have to take off to use my phone.
Next we have a hat, because even though I have a lot of hair my head does get cold and they say you lose most of your body heat out of your head. I think this hat is from Forever 21 and it really does go with pretty much everything.
Next I have a pair of sunglasses. I wear sunglasses year round and this time of year the winter sun is incredibly bright and I’d rather not be blinded whilst I’m driving. My sunglass style of choice is aviators. I think they suit my face the best, I have multiple pairs and this pair is from H&M.
And lastly I have a scarf, well two scarves. I’ve been wearing a scarf practically everyday, it’s been that cold. I have two in my bag because the other day I had an outfit change and that included a scarf change. I don’t know where this first one is from, it was a gift, but I love it. It’s on the thicker side, it is an infinity scarf which is my preferred style and it’s colors I love.
The second scarf is one of my favorites, it’s a simple gray, also infinity style, and it’s a lighter fabric so you can really wear it any time of year. And this one is from Fred Meyer.
And finally we have a couple of random items. The first is a choker. It’s not uncommon for me to have some sort of necklace in my bag, but I don’t typically wear chokers. This is new, and I wanted something more on the festive side to wear and when I saw this I thought it was perfect. It’s black with a gold star and I love the simplicity.
Second to last I have a pack of hand warmers. I don’t always have particularly cold hands, but these are so great to have and I highly recommend having them around.
And lastly, I have a couple of snacks. I always have some sort of snack in my bag, usually on the healthier side, but these are not. These are Ghiradelli squares. One is Peppermint Bark and the other is Eggnog. Two flavors I love and they are actually quite good.
That about wraps it up for this post, what do you guys keep in your handbags during winter?
Until next time, I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas and I hope you guys are enjoying Blogmas :).
