Whenever A/W come around, especially in December, I love to trade out my summer bag for something else. I don’t like to carry a lot of weight around with me when it’s cold but enough space to carry my essentials. The things inside my bag have obviously changed too and so I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been carrying around with me recently.
Please take note that not all things that I carry around with me are kept in this bag. I have a huge coat which keeps me snug during the cold days and so my phone and gloves etc are found in the pockets of that. Also, I should probably note: the bag is faux leather.
|Over the shoulder bag: Primark|
As soon as I saw this bag I knew I had to have it. It keeps everything that I need perfectly organised and doesn’t allow for any space for anything I don’t need which helps to keep it clutter-free!
The only time that you wouldn’t see me out wearing this beauty would be if I was doing some shopping. Can you imagine trying to fit your weekly shop in here? Laughable.
It is perfect, though, for parties, catch up over coffee and can be dressed up or down for either.
As you can see, everything fits into the bag without anything being crunched up or teared but that’s enough bragging about my organisation skills (lol) let’s get into the bag!
|2016/17 planner: Oliver Bonas|
I couldn’t write up a post like this without including my Oliver Bonas planner. I’ve been getting really into planning and thought this would be the perfect way to start getting into the whole ‘bullet journal’ trend without throwing myself in the deep end. I’m no artist, you see? I’ve even bought lots of sticky tape and stickers to decorate. I’m genuinely lovin’ it!
There’s really not much to say about these. They aren’t anything special but they are incredibly cute aren’t they? I always carry tissues around in my bag as you never know what kind of situation you may find yourself in when you need some. Whether that’s a sudden need to blow your nose or wash the lipstick swatches from the back of your hand after your cheeky Boots visit. These were only around 12p each from Home Bargains.
|Card holder: Primark / Glasses: Primark|
A card holder is a relatively new thing for me (I know, I’m incredibly late to the party) but I’ve just never really seen the need for one. I was all like “where am I going to keep my change?” as if I have so much money I don’t know where to place it- ha. It’s honestly been a game changer for me. It’s so much easier to fit into a small bag or slip in your pocket than a big bulky purse. It also means that I have everything in one place.
The next item I have in my bag is my Primark glasses. As I’ve said before, these are not prescription. I have not suddenly damaged my sight; I just love these glasses. I feel like they are the perfect accessory to an outfit.
What’s a must in your handbag this A/W?
