It’s All About the Bag: Longchamp

If you’re a frequent reader of A Pop of Pink, you may remember this post on my Fossil bag and what I carry in it. Today, I’m talking about my Longchamp bag, which I use all the time. During the school year, it’s the perfect bag for classes. It’s a popular choice among girls on college campuses, and there’s a reason why!

Longchamp Le Pliage Tote

What’s in my bag: 

1. I’ve mentioned before that a little notebook like this one from Kate Spade is perfect for jotting down quick thoughts or ideas. Must-have, especially if you’re a blogger. 
2. My Lilly Pulitzer agenda is my life. It helps keep me organized, and I really just love writing down assignments and important dates. There’s something I like about seeing everything written down rather than keeping everything electronically. There are several size options for Lilly Pulitzer agendas. Mine is a large and fits perfectly in my Longchamp.
3. A pencil case will prevent your bag from getting cluttered with messy pens and highlighters. This one is from Target!

4. A cosmetic bag keeps all of your essentials in one place. Some of what’s in my bag includes a mini hairbrush and hair ties, tons of chapstick, lipstick, and Tide To Go Stain Remover. I hate when I get stains on my clothing!
Tory Burch has a lot of cute cosmetic cases, like this one. To save money, I’d also recommend seeing what you already have. Cosmetic cases are often gifts that are free with a purchase (like my Lilly Pulitzer one above), so chances are you have some that aren’t being used.

5. My Lilly Pulitzer phone case has been great for this school year! I use it as a wallet in my purse, but it’s also great as a purse for going out. It holds the bare essentials: my ID, money, and my keys, which is sometimes all I need. Plus, it’s so cute!

What are your go-to items for your school bag or backpack?

    Absolutely loving your bag! I need to get my hands on that Lilly phone/ ID case ! I also think you're the only other person I know besides myself that keeps Stain Remover on me all the times!

      Stain remover is necessary! Glad someone agrees! The Lilly case is seriously the best. I highly recommend it.

    Love Longchamps! I have a bunch that I use for different things. Had a couple for school, one as a beach bag, a huge one for travel, and some small ones for a simple purse! They are so simple and are perfect for a busy girl!

    I love this bag! I'm definitely going to order one soon because I've been looking for a bag that can hold all of my stuff, including my laptop. Carrying a big ol' backpack everywhere isn't cute at all, haha! Also, I'm a planner girl too. My planner is my life, I put everything in there! Love this post!

    Those bags are everywhere when I go to the airport – I guess because they are so easy to wear.

    I'm obsessed with all the color and prints going on in your bag! Definitely makes school supplies much more fun!
