Summer is here and it is surely here to stay! A woman’s handbag is no less than a treasure chest. While one could find anything from antiques to garbage in a bag, there are some stereotypical items that are spotted in most. Amidst the scorching heat, sweat and the outrageous humidity levels, here are a few items that you just can’t leave home without.
1) Compact Powder
You leave home with your makeup perfectly done, but in most cases it won’t survive the cruelty of summer. Hence a compact powder comes in hand just about always! A girl’s handbag and a compact powder are almost like conjoined twins, don’t you think?
‘A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future’ – Coco Chanel
She said it, ladies! Wearing no perfume during the season of summer is a mortal sin. Ergo, it is necessary to carry a travel size perfume. A sudden meeting with a client, or an unforeseen lunch date with your boo? Just grab that magic bottle out of your bag and be enveloped in the fragrance you love!
3) Go – To Sun Block
You know how our parents have preached the same thing for ages? Well, this particular item surely falls under that category! A sun block is a necessity throughout the year but how can I even begin to emphasize its importance during summer? A tiny sunscreen lotion in your handbag could save your skin from the ruthless torture of the UV rays! All it takes is for you to slather your skin with some TLC and it’ll work wonders for you!
4) Clean Up Items
A tiny hand sanitizer and a packet of wipes won’t take up massive space in your bag. Imagine how disgusting it is to touch your face with the fingers that have carried the germs from your commute or the stickiness from your lunch. A hand sanitizer is a lazy girl’s go-to for being germ free! Also, some baby wipes or tissues could save you a lot of embarrassment!
5) The Perfect Sunnies
Aviator, Wayfarer, Cateye or Round, whatever type suits you best, it simply HAS to be a part of your treasure chest this summer. Sunnies play a key role to give you that perfect summer look. And let’s not undermine the protection they provide your pretty pearl eyes!
What’s left now? Go ahead and buy that perfect summer bag and fill it up with these summer must-haves!
