It is a struggle to think up anything that you can compare to a summer’s day, however Saturday is one of them. What’s better than the freedom that the weekend brings?
For yesterday’s outing I wore a dress which is traditionally a winter dress, but I wanted to mix things up a little. I coordinated it with a sleeveless collar top underneath to suit the warm weather with silver sandals and burgundy coloured socks that conveniently accompanied my satchel well. The end result was inadvertently school-girl-esque, supplemented by a finishing touch of a fabulous vintage brooch in the shape of a wide-brimmed hat. Now all I need is a blazer and I will be ready for school!

It really does look like I’m doing the whole first-day-of-school-photos episode.
I never thought that I would wear black tights at the beginning of November, but alas, the dropping temperature called for it. I guess it’s back to winter for now.

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.
