It’s no secret to my friends and family that I have a mild obsession with Kate Spade. By mild I mean a full-blown obsession. So, it’s no surprise that my current bag is a Kate Spade New York two-toned beauty that was in one of their 75% off sales!

This bag is by far one of my favorites, especially now that I have my little girl. The open design in the middle of the bag makes it easy for me to place things like sippy cups, diapers and toys in so that they’re easy to grab and go. It has two side pockets with zippers for my wallet, sunglasses, phone, makeup, etc. One thing that draws me to a bag is the zippers.

I know that sounds weird but a heavy zipper that is sturdy is the first thing I look for, and that’s one of the things I love about Kate Spade New York bags. I switch between diaper bag and purse constantly, so I am constantly moving the contents and misplacing things. But here are the absolute essentials that I am always carrying in either bag.

My On The Go Must haves

Happy Baby teether crackers for my girl, she loves these things and a day without her having some just doesn’t exist for us. A book and toy are always on my person for her as well, I’d always rather be safe than sorry! I also always carry water for her and she loves drinking from her Munchkin water bottle.

I Can’t Live Without

My sunglasses (I can’t live without a pair in the bright Colorado sun) currently Kate Spade, again, but I have around three or four pairs on average. I also can’t live without a Tide To Go Pen, I spill a lot so this is a lifesaver. Neosporin because I use it like the dad from My Big Fat Greek Wedding uses Windex. Tylenol, because… well headaches. A notebook for lists, blogging ideas etc. My Lo and Behold lip balm and hand salve, amazing all natural products that I’m in love with.

Not to mention my Kate Spade wallet, I love her wallets because of all the pockets and slots for cards, plus look how cute they are!

I am all about versatility and comfort in a bag. I believe that your bag is a part of your life and needs to work for you, so I always buy something I love and know that I’ll get the best use out of.
