As summer is ablaze, I'm keeping all of my essentials handy. While I used to take the easy way out with a stylish, small crossbody, it's time to keep it real - all the items I need in my day-to-day routine require a reliable, sturdy handbag, and since scoring this solid pink Anne Klein tote from Marshalls last summer, it's been the handiest, dandiest accessory.

Especially this summer, I cannot go anywhere without my tube of Aquaphor Lip Protectant with SPF (it's been the only lip product that can heal my cracked, dry lips), YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector (for transitioning from work day to night out without all the shine) and b+b Acetaminophen (dye-free pain reliever for those headache days - plus, with every purchase, one product will be donated to those in need through Americares).

You can bet your bottom dollar that these are all coming with me to our annual road trip to Kill Devil Hills - I cannot wait!
