Colleen Byrnes, a member of the Social Stylate team, reveals her work bag essentials. When she is on the go between the office and meeting with clients, or behind the scenes of a photo shoot, these are the necessities she keeps with her at all times. Here’s a peak inside of her bag.
THE BAG – I love this reversible bag from GrassRoots because it matches perfectly with just about any outfit. I also tend to cram things into my bag when I’m running around, so the large size of the bag is perfect for my every need.
THE CALENDAR – I have had Lily Pulitzer planners for the past few years and I absolutely love them. The prints are adorable and it keeps me organized day to day. Thank goodness our client, The Pink Crab, has them on their shelves at all times!
THE NOTEBOOK – TJ Maxx has always been my go to for cute notebooks. With great prices and such a wide selection of chic notebooks, it’s hard not to scoop one up! I always keep my favorite color Sharpie with me to take notes on the go as well.
THE MAKEUP – I constantly refresh my lashes, so having Laura Mercier mascara from Houppette keeps them fresh and full throughout the day. I keep a hair tie for when I am done with my locks and want my hair out of my face. I also always have a bottle of polish so my hands can be picture ready at any time.
THE GADGET – I always have to have my MacBook with me. Between being a college student and working with Social Stylate, it’s imperative to stay connected wherever I go.
THE SHADES – I tend to cycle through sunglasses pretty quickly depending on my mood and styles I want to try. Christina’s Unique Accessories & More always has the latest styles.
THE WALLET – I absolutely love my Kate Spade wallet. It not only has the functional purpose of a wallet, but it also adds a bold print to my outfit and I can carry it as a clutch for a chic accessory.
THE SNACK – Sometimes, at Social Stylate, we are on such a roll that I forget to eat lunch. I keep this Luna Bar in my bag just in case I need a quick pick me up.
THE KEYCHAIN – I don’t think I’m alone in saying I lose my keys in my large bag so easily. I love this trendy tassel keychain I found from Nordstrom that helps me keep track of my keys.
