Summer is upon us in full swing. From beaches being overcrowded to the sun blistering our scalps; this very usual year has produced some of the normal things we see and experience annually. COVID-19 is in full swing as well, and while I write this, I know that some out here are being very smart and cautious this summer too. That’s who I am writing this post for. The fashionistas among us who are still interested in summer bags and what’s inside them.
My purse looks a a tad bit different this year so I wanted to share what bags I”m toting around as I embark on errands and virtual staycations.
My fave bag this summer is the Zip Closure Bucket Bag – Universal Thread™ at Target for only $29.99. I LOVE this simple yet cute pale pink tote that’s easy to carry and fun. A large shoulder bag with a simply chic and functional design that has an adjustable shoulder strap helps you get just the right fit.
Has several interior pockets help keep small items organized, and made with a sleek material that creates a polished look. Love the outside pocket to keep my hand wipes, sanitizer and healthy snacks to close reach.
My newest bag is actually a camera bag but I love it just the same! The Camera Crossbody Bag – A New Day™ also from Target. is cute, functional and a crossbody for only $19.99. I love and actually prefer crossbody purses and this lightweight bag allows me to get around lighter and quicker.
An inside pocket and one side pocket in the front is all I need for a quick run to the store. Long wide strap so I can wear it on my shoulder or across my body and a small wallet can fit easily along with phone, wipes and hand sanitizer.
So, what do I have inside my bag this summer? Here’s a rundown of what’s essential for me and hopefully essential for you as well.
I keep my trusty Honest Hand Sanitizer Spray in Coastal Surf in my bag at ALL TIMES. I like using gel too but when on the go it is much easier to just spritz and keep it moving whether I am hitting my hands, a shopping cart or a door handle.
I don’t go far without my Guess zip around wallet, my favorite scented Brazilian Touch Hand Cream or my Hard Sunglasses Case. All three pretty much go where I go unless heading out quickly and then opt for the smaller black bag. The wallet sells for $50, the hand cream is $15 and the sunglasses case is $13.75.
I usually have a few disinfecting wipes in a baggy and a few other items like my Bluetooth and an extra face mask (just in case!) We also keep some face masks in the car as well. We believe in staying covered in protection since it is very dangerous out here now. The Bluetooth is under $20, the face mask is only $12.
So, that’s it for me. Summer bags and essentials are pretty basic for 2020 and I don’t imagine they are much different from yours.

Have a safe and fun summer Lovelies and stay protected while out and about with your summer bags!
