What's In My Bag?

I feel like I wear two very different hats in life. One hat is the grad student who is very busy and doesn't want to carry around a huge backpack stuffed to the brim with things. The other hat is very girly and loves carrying a purse filled with all of the essentials. So today I'm breaking down what I carry in my bags. One bag is the one I take to school every day while the other is the one I would carry on the weekends and to church.

School Bag

This is the bag I carry Monday through Friday. I love this bag! One of the women in the department highly recommended it so when I had some extra cash saved up, I splurged on it. And it was such a great decision! The size is big enough to hold the necessities but small enough that I don't overload it with things I don't need at school. It's very durable and it's easily cleaned. Typically if I'm grabbing dinner right after I leave school I just grab my wallet and go. I got this Kate Spade wallet from a factory store during a sale so it was suuuuuper cheap! It holds everything included my phone which is awesome.
Bag: Longchamp (I have gunmetal)
Glasses and case: Tory Burch (in tortoise) and Vera Bradley
Wallet: Kate Spade (similar, mine is from a factory store)
Laptop Sleeve: Amazon (similar)

Weekend/Evening/Not School Bag

I saw this bag at TJ Maxx and immediately knew it had to be mine. I love the rigid structure of it - no falling over when I set it down. I also tend to fill my purse like a mom would. I usually have bandaids, Tylenol or Advil, and extra hair ties and bobby pins. I also always have extra stamps in my wallet and a Shout To-Go wipe. This purse also came with an adjustable strap so I can wear it on my shoulder or as a cross-body. Most of the time though I take that strap off and just carry it on my arm.
Bag: TJ Maxx, Anne Klein (similar)

     Lipstick: The Beauty Crop
     Deodorant: Arrow

What are your must-haves for your purse? Anything you refuse to leave home without?
