I have always loved bags/purses! When I was growing up, I was always on the hunt for the cutest bag to carry all my books and school supplies in (I have one Betsy Johnson bag that I am still obsessed with) . Not much has changed…. 😀 I am still obsessed with adorable bags, but my focus has shifted to bags that are perfect for my work needs!

Because I am in consulting and am working at different client sites, I don’t have a desk where I can stash some of these essentials, so I have to carry them with me. So, what all do I store in my bag? I need my laptop to fit, all of my chargers, notebooks, beauty essentials (you know, the chap stick, concealer, mascara, and a bold lip color for those nights that happy hour calls), a water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the day and a few protein bars/other snacks for those days when I have back to back meetings and no time to grab lunch. That is a lot, y’all!

When I first laid eyes on this Emma bag by JEMMA bag, I immediately fell in love with its sleek exterior design. And then when I saw the pictures of interior compartments and organizational elements, I knew it would be perfect for my lifestyle! The hardest part about deciding to purchase this bag was deciding what color to choose. Ultimately, I decided to go with the black and vanilla color because it would go with a majority of my wardrobe!

After a few days of checking and re-checking the shipping status of this Jemma bag (can you tell I was anxiously awaiting it’s arrival), it landed on my doorstep in one of the most gorgeous boxes I have ever seen! (But, seriously y’all – I still have the box and am deciding what to do with it, because it is so sturdy and just overall a stunning black and white design). Paired with this solid (and gorgeous) blue fit and flare dress from Eliza J, my trusty watch and a nude pair of pumps, the bag makes a statement while looking polished and professional for a day of client meetings!

I hope y’all are having a good work week! I’m in Houston and not traveling this week (wohoo!) and am excited to be attending some great events tomorrow (Wed, 5/18) hosted by some fabulous blogger friends! First, I’ll be stopping by the L’eggs x Dress for Sucess Houston donation party at Tarakaan hosted by Shasie from Live Life in Style! This is a great event supporting a fabulous local charity empowering women to have great careers by providing gently used clothes and career preparation! Then, I will be heading to one of the four (yes, four) Charm Parties at Elaine Turner. Each of the locations is hosted by a fabulous blogger and 15% of the proceeds will go to the Autism Rescue Angels! If you are in town, I hope that you can attend one of these events and support two fantastic causes!

I would love to hear in the comments below what your favorite bag is right now and what are the must haves you look for when shopping for a purse! Do you also own a Jemma Bag?

    I can’t decide which I like the best: your hand bag or the stunning blue dress. Can I have both?

    This purse is so cute, and it sounds amazing! I’m still in school, so I always look for bags that will hold everything I need for classes, study sessions, etc. in an organized way. And cuteness is definitely a must too! 🙂
