My bag never changes. I always keep the same things in it, unless I’m traveling. I like to only bring the essentials at all times.
I am in love with my bag. I only own one. It is the Fossil Sydney Top Zip bag. It is amazing because it has a built-in card holder. It is extremely slim and classy. The strap adjusts so I can have three types of bag (shoulder bag, crossbody, clutch). Also, it is in my favorite color: blue. The leather is buttery and soft. I will continue to repurchase this bag for as long as they sell it. This one should last me at least 5 years, possibly 10.

The only other things I occasionally have in it are a coupon, powdered sunscreen, or a lipstick that I’m wearing that day. But the list above are the things I always keep in it.
People also like to put sunglasses in their bag. This bag is big enough to fit that and more.
I don’t think my bag will ever change, unless I have kids, and it works extremely well for me. I like crossbody bags because they are good for your health (no shoulder slouch). If you get migraines, it could be from shoulder slouch. It’s not something we consciously do. I do like the over-the-shoulder or clutch version for a night out, but running errands, crossbody works the best. This bag converts to that with the adjustable strap. I like the simplicity of owning a single bag. Very freeing.
