I’m a fan of a good patch bag and this new beaut is from the on point Missco Girl. I couldn’t wait to show it off, so for our first outing together, I opted for a monochromatic look.
Now I’m a girl who rarely dresses so casually, but you can see, I’m loving this new pair of ripped jeans, they are a recent purchase and I feel great when I wear them. Getting dressed seems so effortless and yet I look like I’ve gone to a lot of bother, if you get my drift? I searched for the right top to work with the ensemble – and importantly didn’t detract from this Missco Girl patch bag. I pulled out this cute cotton number, which is sadly the Cinderella of my wardrobe and doesn’t get worn often enough. It was the perfect piece for the overall look I had in mind. Now that I’ve found this top again, I will show it some love and pack it in the suitcase for my holiday, yup, not long now, I’m looking forward to hitting Florida, USA in May. (So very excited!)
I was almost ready to head out, but something was missing, so to complete the look I folded a neckerchief and tied it choker style, it really compliments the monochrome vibe. This simple touch is one of my favourite ways to accessorise, especially in spring and summer. I think it is seen at it’s best when worn with a subtle clashing print, nothing too harsh though. My outfit was complete, I just had time to pop some essentials in my new patch bag before meeting up for a casual lunch date with friends.
I must admit to being pleasantly surprised by this clever compact looking bag, it is so deceptively roomy, which is good news as I can carry more of my stuff than looks possible. Along with my make up bag, keys, nail file, purse and other bits and bobs I had stashed in there, I then threw in my sunnies, perfect for strolling in the spring sunshine AND a pair of reading glasses, necessary to check out the delicious lunch menu. I checked my lippy and viewed the outfit, happy with the results, off I trotted feeling sassy and looking forward to a good natter with friends, where I know my fab bag will be a talking point..
