My Favourite Bags!

As part of my new found love for accessories, I shared with you my favourite shoes now it's the turn of bags. To be honest I'm in a handbag rut. I tend to cling to the same fail safe black leather number for years and years until the handles wither away to nothingness. I am determined to get myself out of this funk and indulge in something a lot more fashion friendly.

The big bags below are ticking all the right boxes in terms of fashion and function. I love carrying my whole world with me so I have to admit I am more than a little smitten with the hugeness of the Chameleon Earth leather tote. The summery orange colour is also doing it for me. Future investment perhaps?

When it comes to party time, nothing beats a fabulous clutch. Luckily there are loads of fantastic options out there. The purple and white print clutch by BagThis (bottom right) is perfect for me. I love the print, it's big enough for all the essentials and it comes with a detachable strap. What more could a girl want?
