Jewellery is one of those areas that I think us girls fall into a few different camps with. Either, they LOVE jewellery and it’s all they want for Christmas, Valentine’s Day and birthdays or, like me, gals that have a few cool and random pieces that are basically ‘costume’ jewellery (I hate that saying though!) and don’t have too much meaning. I’ve just never really been attached to jewellery and I don’t really like receiving it as a gift because I’m quite particular in what I like.
I’m usually a chuck everything in a huge tote and carry around too much stuff kinda gal but when I saw this Faux Leather Mini Grab Tote I thought it was probably about time for me to streamline my handbag nightmare and embrace the minimalist life. Plus, it’s so cute and pretty and perfect for the winter time with it’s icy blue/grey colour. I also thought this was a bargain for only £29.50 and they had their extra special Sparks 20% off event on too so it was only around £23.60! I’ve been eyeing up these mini styles of bags for a while but this is the perfect mini but not too tiny size.I also bought a fab grey wool coat that you’ll be seeing pop up in a few posts very soon. Bravo M&S!
A new season calls for a new bag, right? Well I’ve been touting round my vintage leather saddle bag or my bright red slouchy bag for the majority of the summer and they just aren’t cutting it with my favourite new A/W pieces. I’m going with a lot of earthy tones, suede and knitwear (naturally, being chilly!) and my new Radley Border Backpack in Taupe* fits in perfectly with my seasonal outfits.
Whenever Orla Kiely brings out a new collaboration range with Clarks the little retro-loving part of me comes alive and all I want to do is wear A-line dresses and cute collars. The newest addition to my (pretty insane) shoe collection are the Orla ‘Beryl’ platform leather beauties! I love the detail on them, the flowers, the printed sole, everything. Plus, the leather is really soft so they’ll be quite comfortable I hope. How pretty will these look in the summer for fancy parties or weddings? All I need now is a fancy party to go to. Invites in the post please! Stay tuned for outfit posts galore. These shoes deserve killer outfits, right?
