What's In My Bag?: Commuter Fashion Student Edition

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

The #modsummer challenge has inspired this blog post today!
As most of you probably know, I'm a fashion merchandising student at the wonderful Kent State University. I feel very grateful to be a part of the awesome program there, the program is actually rated the #2 for best fashion school in the U.S. this year next to FIT in NYC. It's the real deal.
However, I've found that dorm life isn't really my thing, so I commute. My morning commute is only about 30 minutes and since I ride my Vespa, I have to pack smart & light. I use my 15" green leather satchel from Zatchels (woo, say that 5x fast) to stash all of my essentials:
Glasses: Can't see without 'em, obviously a necessity. I love my new ones from Coastal!
Scarf: I love the vintage one I got from amermaidscloset on Instagram, I use it to keep my hair tame when I have my helmet on!
Coffee tumbler: I'm a college student. Enough said.
Fun notebook and pens/pencils: For taking notes like a champ.
Watch: I'm always strolling in at least a couple minutes late (sorry, profs), but it's cute and it has a map on it. AND it was only $4. Get it from Amazon here!
Camera: I keep my smaller Nikon Coolpix with me because Kent has a really beautiful campus worthy of a quick snapshot.


  1. I always feel a peek into a bag is like a fun peek into a person's life.

  2. I literally could not stop smiling when I saw the picture with your beautiful green bag and all the other things -- camera, notebook, etc. :) You have such an amazing sense of style!


    1. Aw, thank you! So do you! Glad we can be blogger buddies now :)

  3. Whats in my bag is one of my favorite posts for bloggers to do, its so fun to see how much it can be the same but also vary! Also I love all the prints you have in your purse. From the pencil case, the notebook to the scarf! I can't get over your vespa, I imagine you look so cute riding it around.

    1. Yes, we are all kinda similar because we alllll have great taste. And thank you!

  4. Your bag is so cute! And it looks like it would be the perfect size (:
    P.S. Thank you so much for sharing where you got that watch. I almost paid 4X that amount to get a very similar one from Urban Outfitters, and I'm so glad I waited!

  5. I love it all so much! The satchel and pink zippy case are my favs! <3
