What's in my Summer Bag?

When I thought of Ugg Australia a few weeks ago the first thing I would have thought of would definitely have been their boots, which are definitely a love hate thing - they're not my style but they do look extremely comfortable. For some reason I had no idea the brand had other things until I was gifted this beautiful scarf print bag, that has fast become one of my favourite summertime bags. I have a real thing for bags with chain handles, this one is a lovely almost antique bronze colour and it's the perfect cross body length that gives a real boho, relaxed feel to the bag. When it's warm outside I'm all about the relaxed look! My favourite thing though is how roomy this thing is, even with all of this inside it's only half full! I could easily fit a full purse and a small make up bag with all my must-haves in as well if I'm going somewhere further afield or I think I'll need to carry a few more things with me.

With me today I have my phone complete with a slightly over the top case that I got from eBay. Oh how I love eBay for cute little things like this! I've also got my Boots Advantage Card (you never know when a sneaky Boots purchase is on the cards), a debit card and my I.D. I always tend to have a couple of make up items with me, I love this Pur Minerals powder* a lot when it's warm outside because I keep shine at bay without it ever looking cakey or too much. I've also got a W7 blush* that I'm testing out and a trusty Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, which is probably my favourite lip product of all time - I can't get enough of the caramel scent!

It's not super sunny today so I'm wearing my new Scout Nation glasses that I got from Glasses Direct a few weeks ago when they were having a huge sale. I definitely didn't need any more glasses but I just couldn't resist these, they're the perfect size! For any sunny spells I have my sunglasses too, I've had these for years and although they were super cheap I've never found any that I like as much and they're still going strong! Finally I have my favourite necklace from Love Hearts & Crosses, it's only in my bag because I can't put it on myself, I really need to stop biting my nails!

What's in your bag right now?

  1. Gorgeous bag! I'd never have believed it was by Ugg. My bag is a bit of a mess of receipts and random bits of makeup at the moment. This post has inspired me to have a long overdue clear out!

  2. Oh what a cute bag, I can't stand Ugg boots so I don't suppose I would have ever looked at the site to see what else they do.

  7. Wow I love the print! I love those kind of top clasp bags too. Also, I used to be so anti-ugg boots because they are so ugly, but after getting some I'll never be without them, it's like walking around with snuggly warm pillows on your feet!! They actually do some cute heels and wedges too.

  26. Lovely Bag - I thought it was a Moustache pattern (that would have been AMAzing).
    I love eBay for phone / iPad cases. So many cute ones - I change mine up so often & you can get some right bargains.
