Hi, my name is Carrie.
I blog over at Chasing Big Dreams and I sell handmade accessories over at Caroline G. I recently changed the direction of my blog this year when I felt a tugging on my heart to use my voice to encourage and inspire others around me. And I started my handmade business two years ago while teaching preschool.
1. purse: longchamp. 2. wallet/wristlet: coach 3. wrislet: gussysews 4. sharpies + notepad: target 5. journal: michaels 6. lipgloss: clinque 7. car keys 8. bandaids: target 9: iphone + case: kate spade 10. iphone case pouch: gussysews 11. thank you notes: target 12. scripture cards 13. sunglasses and croakies: target and lilly pulitzer 14. tissues (dang allergies): target. 15. water bottle
1. The one thing that I always carry around inside my purse is my little gussysews’ bags. I use one to protect my phone from all the miscellaneous things in my bag. And I often carry a wristlet within my purse so that I when I’m out and about I don’t have to carry around a large bag throughout the many aisles of stores such as target because apparently I shop there a lot.
2. I tend to switch purses out based on outfits. My longchamp bag tends to be my go to bag since it goes with most of my outfits being that its a light shade of green and I am usually found wearing pink and green 90% of the time. However, I usually alternate between that bag and other bright colored bags such as a large tote from GussySews or Vera Bradley since both brands carry bright bold colors and patterns.
3. I always, alway, always prefer a large bag over a small one. I tend to carry around way more than necessary, but I find a bigger bag easier to manage for shopping trips where I can slip a purchase into my bag and have have to worry about carrying around an additional bag. And because I carry smaller wristlets within my bag, I can always ditch the bigger bags when I’m tired of carrying it around.
