Video: What's In My Lo & Sons Mom & Work Bags | March 2017

For the month of March I’ve moved all of my work and mom essentials into two Lo & Sons bags. The Pearl crossbody carries all of my personal necessities: driver’s license, credit cards, cash, sunglasses, touch-up powder and lip color, phone charger, etc. I’m using the giant O.M.G. Overnight bag for my work stuff: laptop, folders, notepad, planner, pens, pencils, etc. I love the classic sleekness of these two bags. They’re streamlined in their appearance, which hides all the utility behind the zippers. There are pockets and zippered-off sections galore in both bags. The inner organization is unparalleled — everything I’d ever need has its rightful place in either of the two bags. 

I had to downsize some items that I normally carry with me on a daily basis to fit what I need in these Lo & Sons bags, and my son’s epi-pens and allergy medicines don’t fit very well, so I’m still carrying those in a separate Bumpkins wet bag that I leave in the car most days. In an ideal world I’d use one bag that carried all of my work and personal stuff, as well as my son’s essentials, but that’s a tall order that only a few of my bags can handle. For now I’m very happy with my Lo & Sons bags. They’re well made and stylish. And I love how well they coordinate with each other. I’ve only been using this combo for a few days, but I already notice that I’m putting together my work outfits to match. 

I hope this video gives you ideas for how you can swap out work and personal bags from your own stash to be more efficient with your stuff!
