Social Sunday

Sunday Social

I'm linking up for Sunday Social again this week.

Favorite handbag you've ever owned

Prior to my Vera Bradley obsession, I've never really been into purses. I really only started carrying one regularly when I was a senior in high school because my school banned backpacks during class.

So, of course, I'm gong to have to pick a Vera as my favorite and really it has to be a tie between the two styles that I've actually owned more than one of.


This is my first Vera Bradley Hipster in Petal Pink and I also have one in Totally Turq. I love the Hipster for travel. I don't need to carry most of my usual stuff on vacation, so I can go smaller. And I can actually fit quite a bit in my Hipster. I carried it every day of our 10 day Honeymoon and it was perfect. I love that I can wear it crossbody and keep my hands free which is important when you like to take lots of pictures when you travel, like I do.

My other favorite is my daily purse, the Stephanie, shown here in Totally Turq. I'm actually on my third Stephanie currently in Make Me Blush. I love the Stephanie because it holds all my stuff very well. It has plenty of pockets and the shoulder straps are the perfect length. I'm actually quite sad that Vera Bradley retired this style. Hopefully the Whitney will work well for me next year.

Dream handbag you lust over

Considering I've been carrying the Vera Bradley Stephanie for 3 years in a row now, you can probably tell I stick with what I like. There isn't really any dream expensive handbag that I really want. I'm not a Coach girl and while Kate Spade often has cute ones, I didn't see anything I liked in her current collection.

But, I did remember a designer purse that I wouldn't mine owning!

A Disney Dooney & Bourke Letter Carrier in Pink Sketch. It would be a fun purse to carry at Disney World. Practical? Probably not, but it's still cute!

 Daily essentials in your purse or work bag

What's in your purse(with pictures)

I'm going to cheat and combine these two questions because I pretty much only carry what I deem essential in my purse anyway. Although my mom would probably say otherwise since she thinks my purse is too heavy.

This is everything I carry on a daily basis:

I always have my phone as well, but it didn't make it into the picture. I often also have a book stuffed in there just in case I have to wait somewhere.

And yes, I do carry so many lip glosses, they have their own bag. Although it's not just lip gloss in there:

There's also some hand lotion and some Catholic paraphernalia that I carry just in case I feel the need to attend confession. There are usually some pens and pencils stuffed in there too.

I do have to confess that I actually cleaned out a bunch of receipts from the bottom of my purse before I took those pictures. So thanks Social Sunday for helping me clean out my purse!



  1. Love the planner! Who is that by?

    1. Isn't it cute? It's just a cheap planner that I picked up at Walmart last year for about $4. They usually have some cute designs.

  2. I have that same style of wallet too! Love Vera Bradley!

  3. I love that Dooney and Burke bag too! I carry a crossbody coach when I am at Disneyland. I think it's really practical and then if I get anything larger I just get a locker! Have a great Sunday!

  4. i LOVE the hipster,i bought it before i went to NYC this past march and i still use it daily because it is fantastic :)

  5. I love Dooney and Burke! and I didn't know about Vera Bradley before reading it here, but from the pictures they look really cute too! (I'm actually trying to find a small vacation bag, so I just might have to look into the Hipster!) I'm thrilled to be your newest follower and would love it if you could return the follow if you get the chance and wish to :)

  6. Love all of your Vera Bradley items! You have a really cute blog, I'm now following :)

  7. So cute! Thanks for linking up!

  8. Thanks for stopping by It's Me Again, Pamela - your newest follower - love that you are a VB fan!

  9. I love seeing what other ladies carry daily! And, I am a ridiculously huge fan of Vera Bradley, so I was excited to see that you not only carry a VB purse, but you also carry many VB accessories inside that purse! Personally, I have more purses than I should, but I realized I don't own a single style in multiple colors. Since I can't base my favorite off of that, I will say that every day I carry some VB purse, but it always varies. But, I prefer ones that are large enough to carry a VB Clutch Wallet, Small Cosmetic, Mini Notebook, Pocket Planner, Pocket Pals, car/house keys, Lanyard with my work key attached, cell phone, tissues, gum, sticky notes, and some other random stuff... Yay Vera!

  10. A coupon book? you are a rock star!

    come say hi at and have a great week!

  11. wow I've never seen such a well organized purse! You have little bags inside your bag! Amazing. And is it okay that I am totally jealous of your lip gloss collection? Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. I look forward to following along!
