What's in YOUR bag?

As we mentioned yesterday, we have teamed up with Modcloth and Herschel to promote Modcloth's "Seven Days of #ModSummer" Instagram photo challenge! We were both lucky enough to each receive an adorable new bag courtesy of Herschel so we packed them full of our favorite items and shared them on Instagram as part of today's "what's in your bag" photo challenge! Feel free to participate and follow along with us! (@ohsolovelyerin and @ohsolovelystef) You guys should definitely post your own "what's in my bag" photo today because by doing so you can enter to win a Herschel bag as well as a $100 Modcloth gift card! Here's the scoop:

Simply share a photo of what's in your bag, with your things laid out neatly, similar to how we have in our photos and tag it with #modsummer and #wellpacked to enter! You also must be following @modcloth to enter too. The winning entry will be chosen based on creativity, style, and following the rules. Both photos and videos are also accepted!

Need some inspiration? Here is a closer more detailed look at what we have in our bags:

Make-up bag from Forever 21, orange sandals I bought in Bangkok, striped top, wallet and keys, my favorite vintage hat, a flask full of fireball (for emergencies), a cute notepad and pen, sunglassses case and sunnies, nailpolish and more sunglasses, as well as my favorite Summer beer, a vintage umbrella, swimsuit top, lipgloss, Marc Jacobs Honey perfume, and my passport and a book.

a pair of vintage pink runners, a cute notepad and pen, a peach wallet, a pair of heart-shaped sunnies, my passport, my iPhone inside of my favorite feline phone case, some nail polish, my favorite wine - Francis Ford Coppola, a pineapple print make-up case, a Mac compact, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh body lotion, glitter make-up brushes, and a copy of 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette.'

What are you waiting for? Get to it, have fun, and be creative!


  1. Adorable!


  2. These are so adorable! Now I really want to do a "What's in your bag" post. Those Herschel bags are so pretty, too.


  3. love those bags, especially the style of the teal one. i use a herschel backpack every day for my commute to and from work, and it's super durable!


  4. The Catcher in the Rye! Such a good book, I liked Holden's character so much. He was tied between adulthood and childhood. Man was he cynical, but I think we all have a little cynicism in us. We all try to hide from the ugliness and the "phonies" in the world. Yet sometimes, we let it in a little. Just not as much as others, but we do. Its such a good read hope you enjoy it.

    +Plus I absolutely love your blog so much! This book is so in keeping with the ohsolovelyvintage idea. You know, because its set in the 50's. ;)

  5. This is such a cute idea!
    I always find these posts really interesting to see what other people use/have :D
    lovely photos :)
