Packing the perfect purse does require a little planning, but the payoff is worth the effort. Here, eight things that will keep you charged, fresh-faced and prepared for whatever the day throws at you.
This incredible brush-on mineral sunscreen packs a serious punch (SPF 30) and comes in five shades. A few simple brushstrokes over your makeup and you’re powdered (buh-bye, oils) and protected.
A Pair of Classic Shades
Fact of living in the Sunshine State: It’s so damn bright all the time. Invest in protective lenses to keep your eyes safe. Contrary to what you might think, the tint of the lens isn’t important—just look for a pair that’s polarized and offers 100 percent UV protection.

Green Tea Blotting Linens
A shiny, sweaty face is nobody’s friend. Combat a day’s worth of oil with a few blotting sheets. Your makeup will stay intact, and the blotting sheets won’t clog your pores like powder can.
No-Sweat Water Bottle
Remember, every time you drink from a plastic bottle, you’re personally strangling a baby seal. (Not really, but opt for a reusable vessel, OK?) This one has shatter-resistant glass and a bamboo lid. Plus, for every bottle purchased, Soma donates to Charity: water.
Good Ol’ Rubber Flip-Flops
You never know when your bestie may summon you to the beach (or anyplace else with sand and the potential to ruin your new fall boots).
This low-profile battery booster slides right onto your phone and keeps it fully charged all day long. Plus, can you really blame us for being drawn to this blush hue?
Getting caught empty-handed when you bump into that design director at power Pilates is a major no-no. Invest in some splashy new cards that adequately reflect what a boss you are.
Moo (starting at $20)
Even the best of us aren’t immune to a little sweat mustache. And unfortunately, that usually puts our liquid lipstick in disarray. We suggest keeping a Missha gloss handy. It glides on, doesn’t budge and feels comfortable through multiple sips and bites (and 90 percent humidity).
