With Chicago summer in full force, I’ve found it essential to stock my favorite work bag with a few items to combat the inevitable heat while taking me from day-to-night. Below are my must-haves for conquering my commute, workday and beyond!
Nunzio Saviano Anti-Frizz Sheets
These single-packedanti-frizz sheets are amazing, and kick nasty summer frizz in the butt. Available in sets of 18, I always make sure to have a few in my bag for off-site meetings or after work drinks!
Beauty Counter Lip Sheer in “Twig”
My mom (who happens to be a bigger beauty aficionado than I am) introduced me to Beauty Counter, an amazing all-natural beauty line, and I’ve been loving their neutral Lip Sheers for a natural touch of color. I always have “Twig” on-hand for a quick touch up!
Rifle Paper Co. Pocket Notebooks
You never know when you’re going to be struck with a genius idea! I love to have a small notebook available if a creative pitch or additional to-do comes to mind while I’m away from my desk, and Rifle Paper Co. has always been my go-to for cute paper goods.
S’Well Water Bottle in Birchwood
With the weather being so hot, I’ve been really trying to drink tons of water during the day. I love the aesthetic of this S’Well water bottle, it goes everywhere with me!
Ray Ban “Original Aviator”
I am a sunglass fanatic, always switching between a few pairs. Lately I’ve been loving classic aviators to add a preppy and polished twist to my look.
