2016 Vera Bradley Annual Outlet Sale Wish List

This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small amount of compensation which I will then use to buy more Vera. 

I'm making my trip to the Vera Bradley Annual Outlet Sale next week. The sale is crowded and chaotic, so it helps to go prepared. I like to make a wish list of items to look for first before I attempt to browse the rest of the sale.

Today, I'm sharing with you my Vera Bradley Outlet Sale wish list.

Laptop Messenger Crossbody

This is the one bag I am really hoping to get at the sale this year. I've been carrying my laptop in a Vera, but I'd really like something more secure for it. Ideally, I'd like this bag in Impressionista, but I'm not sure that'll be available this year. I'd also take Katalina Pink or Rosewood, or a solid color.

Colorful Hair Clips
I love these clips! I already have them in Go Wild, Flower Shower, and Ribbons. They are great for keeping shorter hairs secure when I wear my hair in a ponytail all summer for my camp job. This year, I'd like to get them in Midnight Houndstooth and Lucky Dots.

Mini Notebook with Pocket

I love these Mini Notebooks! I carry one in my purse for shopping lists and it's the perfect size. I also use one for camp for keeping track of things to remember and notes to myself. I'm not picky about what pattern I get because all of my Mini Notebooks are currently in use and I need backups! I also wouldn't say no to some regular notebooks as well.

I usually pick up a new purse for myself during the Outlet Sale. For the past few years, I've been getting Glennas and I really love that style. Thankfully, it's not retired, yet! This year, I don't feel as if I need another purse. I have enough to rotate them and I like the ones I have. I will probably look to see what patterns are at the sale, but I'm not planning on buying one unless I find one I can't live without.

However, I'm also planning on looking at a couple other purses. I started using a Happy Planner this year and it is much bigger than planners I've used previously. In fact, it barely fits in my Glenna. I really like the planner, though, so I thought I'd see if there is another style of purse that would fit my planner better.

Here are the bags I'm going to try to check out at the sale -

Triple Zip Hipster

I'm interested in a crossbody bag that I can use every day. I love Hipsters, but they don't hold enough for everyday use.

Cargo Sling Crossbody

I like that this one can be worn as a crossbody or over the shoulder. I also like that it has lots of pockets.

Carryall Crossbody

Again, I like that this one can be worn over the shoulder or as a crossbody bag. According to the measurements on the Vera Bradley website, this one is bigger than a Glenna, but the pictures seem smaller. I guess I'll have to check it out in person!

Of course, I have other items I'm interested in getting, but unless the price is right, they aren't as important as these items. Check out my wish list on Pinterest to see more of what I'm wishing for!
