Into the Clutches

Olympia Le-Tan's book clutches are addictive. They're a perfect size for evening, or days you feel like packing light, and they're just roomy enough to fit what's essential. Then there's all the fun of picking your favorite book covers. It's hard not to fall under their spell and want to start collecting them.

Packing Light: The Essentials  

Card holder: Anything larger is unnecessary and takes up too much space. Ours is by Everlane

Concealer: Whatever kind you like as long it comes in a small package. We like Sunday Riley's because the compact comes with a mirror. 

Lipstick: Tom Ford, of course. 

Travel-sized fragrance: An easy way to freshen up. Byredo makes perfectly small sprays and roll-ons. 

Mini pharmacy: Those small Advil bottles are the perfect size. Add a few tablets of anything else you might need. 

Multi-purpose product: Lucas' Papaw Ointment covers pretty much all bases in a pinch. Moisturize cuticles, use it on your lips, and if you get a blister, use a dab of this before you put on a band aid. 

Band aids: Because you never know when you might need one. 

Floss: These flat packets are lifesavers.

Phone: Make sure it's fully charged.
