What a girl keeps in her handbag, she keeps close to her heart. From the beauty essentials to keep us covered in the event of makeup mishaps, to soothing essential oil blends to keep us grounded (read: sane) throughout the busy workweek, there’s a world of possibility inside each and every handbag…
Enter: Katie Cecil. Lead-singer of up-and-coming Indie-Pop duo Wayfarers and fashionista in her own right, Katie’s the type of girl that’s just so relatable you can almost forget that she’s a rising star of the indie-pop scene.
She also has the type of individualistic, rocker-chic style we love: A super-cute blend of edgy-meets-trendy whose rocked an enviable line-up of next-level hair.
And after hearing Wayfarer’s new single, “Kings,” we’re calling it: Katie Cecil is one-to-follow this Summer 2017. For proof, look no further than her totally on-trend selections (hint: black-and-white accessories are the must-have accessories RN!).
According to Katie: “I’m obsessed with Kate Spade, and thankfully a special someone knows it! I received a beautiful black & white Kate Spade with a matching wallet for my birthday and it’s perfect. Since I became an adult I’ve never been the type to spend a lot of money on anything fashionable. I did as a teenager, but I wasn’t the most responsible with my belongings and lost/broke one too many pairs of sunglasses and mistreated my nice purses. I’m much more careful now, but I’m still not a big shopper — which is why useful acessories are the perfect gift in my opinion.”
Katie says: “I already spilled that there was a matching wallet, so that’s number one! I used to just have all my cards/ID floating around my bag which would end up stressing me out when I couldn’t find one – so having a wallet is life-saving. It’s as if my friends and family get me these things so they don’t have to deal with me being so flustered, haha! They know I need it.”
Go-To Fragrance: Marc Jacobs, Daisy. A classic, which you can get in a travel-friendly rollerball size here!
Katie explains: “Marc Jacobs ‘Daisy’ has always been one of my favorite scents and I keep it with me at all times! It’s definitely a smell you can’t go wrong with. I get asked all the time, ‘IS THAT DAISY???’ — everyone loves it!”
Voice Rescue Remedy: Vocalzone Throat Pastilles, a celebrity-favorite!
Katie shares: “Vocalzone lozenges help clear up your voice when you’re feeling a little scratchy, it almost feels like Vick’s vapor rub for your throat. I keep them in my bag for days where my voice may not feel 100%, in case I have a phone interview or need to record.”
Sauce-y Sriracha Keychain: Sriracha To-Go Bottle Keychain
Katie tells us: “This is actually a recent addition to my bag, also gifted by a friend! I’m notorious for needing sauce on everything and I really love spicy food. I used to carry a full size bottle of hot sauce with me in car – but this keychain version is MUCH more discreet. Now I just need ones for ketchup, honey mustard & ranch.”
Solution For The Aftermath: Tide To Go Stain Remover Pen (3 ct)
“If you don’t know this about me already, you’ll know it 5 minutes into eating a meal with me – I’m EXTREMELY MESSY. I always laugh at the area surrounding my plate of food when I’m done with it – it looks like a crime scene. My clothes don’t usually survive the wreckage, either – so I bought these little Tide-to-Go pens in bulk on Amazon. I don’t go anywhere without one. It’s saved my wardrobe on numerous occasions.”
