If you've been keeping up with the #eandajanchallenge on Instagram, then you know that today's picture is "in my bag". Last night I attended a parent/staff event at my school and a co-worker was poking fun at my stuffed purse and so I thought it was only appropriate to share with y'all the HOT MESS that was in my bag. Excuse the dark pics... it was about 11:00 when I snapped these pics.
It looks innocent enough from the outside :) I switch bags all the time, and this is the How Does She Do It bag in Metallic Ikat from Stella and Dot. (click HERE).
In my case, it's "how does she fit all this JUNK in her bag???"
A peek inside reveals that apparently I am a hoarder... a hoarder who carries around half of her life with her on a daily basis. In my defense, I stuffed the mail in here after school and my planner and pens as well so I could get a little bit organized during the meeting I was running to.
Starting on the left, you mean everyone doesn't carry around a little girls swimsuit in their handbag??? hahaha I picked up this super cute suit for Griffin on the weekend, and didn't bother with a bag.... I just shoved it in my purse. (In case you're curious it's by Frankie and Daisy)
Inside??? Sparkle princes necklaces!!!!!
I love Lola and Darla Designs (I got the My Little Pony necklace Luke gave Kensington from this shop as well). I ordered these during a sale a couple of weeks ago to stick back for Griffin. I'm totally guilty of picking up little things every once in a while and sticking them away for my kiddos. That way if I ever need a little present I'm prepared.
Sunglasses, my new planner and a paci of Griffin's. (I'm blogging ALL about the best. planner. ever. later this week!)
I'm a nerd who has special pens for her planner so those were in there along with my current nail polish, Luke's kindle, a pair of socks and a Starbucks card and sweet note from a friend.
I keep a little notebook to jot things down and it was shoved in there with my little lip gloss bag, wallet and a bag of old cheez its. #momproblems
Also in today's mail was the Spring Boden catalog. SWOON!!!!
If you know me you know that I RARELY wear anything tight. I've kind of always been this way... even 3 kids and lots of inches ago :) I feel much more comfortable and relaxed in "flowy".
Apparently I am loving this stripes mixed with floral, because I have this jacket and the matching shorts already in my shopping cart online. hahaha
The patchworky bag holds pens and a couple of other "essentials" and the Petunia Pickle bottom zipper pouch actually unzips to a "market tote".
My wallet is crazy old and not super cute... but I haven't found anything that I like quite as much.
There were also two sizes of diapers and a package of wipes in there as well. hahaha. I don't pack light.
I showed y'all my bag back in October, and it was funny for me to see what was the same and what was different this time.
If you're a little bit nosey like me, be sure to hop on over to Instagram (I'm @andrea2220) and search for the hashtag #eandajanchallenge to see the pics that everyone else is posting!
