Leather in the Fields

Leather for winter is like being offered free money: always welcome. And especially this year with a massive revival of the silver-studded biker jackets from a couple of years ago and the clunky leather boots, leather (real or fake) is always on trend for winter one way or another. However I chose to downgrade the edgy, lethal look black leather usually provides by pairing it up with a relatively dainty dress that is often too delicate in appearance to wear on its own. Incorporating my vintage leather jacket balances out the wildly feminine look and also makes the dress wearable in winter, which is a bonus.

The Good Old Satchel

I am such a fan of small bags. They’re compact and cute and I own dozens of them. Unfortunately they’re too small, which can be irritating when I can fit no more than my phone, some lip balm and if I’m lucky, a stingy wallet. I embarked on a quest to find a bag which would be able to comfortably fit ALL of the necessities (half of my bedside table) and wouldn’t be too bulky or overwhelming.

I noticed that towards the end of last year in Europe that satchel bags, most notably neon satchel bags, were building up a large following. I’m not a go-getter for neon, but I was impressed with the satchel style. They are practical and look great, and even come in varying sizes and varying colours. How cool is that? Catch is that if you’re wanting the 100% leather bags, they come with a 100% expensive price tag. However, I was determined to get one. The most notable brands which offer them (Cambridge satchel co., Leather satchel co.,) are international, and my favourite website featured both of them. So I waited until ASOS had a sale and leapt at the opportunity.

NOTE: Sales make your purchase instantly better.

Now here I am with my satchel that can fit not only half of my bedside table but maybe even a few of my small bags.
