Make me a Bag Lady
It’s summer at last – hooray! What fun it is to spend a weekend outdoors taking photos and then being able to edit them whist sat on a bench in your garden with a G&T! I thought it would never come but at least SouthEast England is seeing the benefits of the big ball in the sky.
Recently I’ve been keeping a bit of an eye out for a potential new bag purchase. It’s all very well collecting lots of lovely clothes but if you don’t have the correct colour and style of bag to go with it then, well, you may as well just not leave your house really. tut tut. Rather than always think about the next money spending opportunity, I thought I’d show you my favourite bags that I actually currently use.
I find myself owning bags for use in three scenarios, the most common being for work each day – at the moment I’m colour-popping with this yellow bucket style by Anna Smith. If I’m feeling fancy I’ll don a clutch for going out – my New Look mint one goes with everything, and if I’m going away or festivaling, well it’s got to be a colourful ASOS rucksack!
In my going out bag // Slim purse, HTC One phone (godsend), Birchbox mirror, Topshop pink lipstick, Jelly pong pong mascara, Penhaligon’s atomiser
In my party bag // Topshop sequin crop top, Catherine Tough socks, New Look sunnies with ASOS chain, Lazy Oaf necklace, Glitter cap from Barcelona, Batiste dry shampoo, REN shower gel, Simple face wash. (plus toilet roll, of course!)
