Basic Blues






[jacket: c/o jbrand / top: c/o lilla p / shorts: cheap monday / shoes: toms /
necklace: c/o sorrelli / bag: c/o echo design / shades: c/o rebecca minkoff]

I am excited to share with you a fun little collab I did with Echo Design to share with you what’s in my bag! This particular day I was in need of a big tote for errands around the city and getting stuff settled for my new apartment. I channeled my new tote and rocked all blue with some stripes for my casual wear.

If you like my bag, head here to the Echo Design Facebook page to win one of your own. Good luck my friends! Keep reading below for a break down of the things I always tote around with me.

What’s in my bag:

Yy iphone: my life, my everything
Tocca stella perfume: it’s a solid and easy to tote around
Rebecca Minkoff shades
MAC mineralize skin finish for touch ups
NARS schiap lipstick: I always have a bold shade in my purse
A few business cards
NARS orgasm blush
Purell to stay germ free
Aquaphor the cure for chapped lips
Burts bees honey chapstick
floral notebook: I always need a place to jot down thoughts and to do lists!

The only thing not pictured here that I always have in my bag is
a good pair of flats for all the walking around I do!

    gina_b - Really love your style/hair/ – you’re gorge! But the only thing lacking on style blogs lately is that everybody wears items that are c/o … it ruins the personal style a bit for me because I always wonder, what would these gals wear if they weren’t being gifted so many items?ReplyCancel

      eat.sleep.wear. - Hey Gina!

      Thanks so much for your comment and insight. The c/o items I receive are always selected by me and things that I pick out that I LOVE. I think it’s part of the job for me in reviewing pieces, and bringing them to my readers to let them know how I feel about them, how I like to wear them etc. Whether or not a piece is purchased or gifted to me, I always only wear pieces I would whole heartily purchase myself and things that I love wearing. I hope you despite the courtesy items that you can still enjoy the style here on my blog and I thank you so much for your thoughts. xoxo KimReplyCancel

    Renee - Loved this outfit when you instagramed it! Such a great summer look. And I’m so glad I’m not the only one who consistently has lipstick (OK I have like 4 shades right now) in their purse.
