A couple posts back I had the idea of sharing my five favourite midi dresses and turning it into a mini series. This time I’m sharing my five favourite daily handbags, now I’ve gone with daily bags as these are my most used. I have some rather fancy more statement bags which I might share at a later date. For now, I wanted to share my most reached for.
Now I’ve come to writing this, I realise that most of my favourite bags are from Topshop. I should point out this isn’t a sponsored post and that they just had a really good couple of years of making really fashionable and affordable bags.
This bag might actually be my favourite one, i regret not buying the other colour versions too! There are so many things i love about this bag, the main thing is its hard rectangle shape, a close second is the tortoiseshell handle and gold hardware. It also has a cross body strap which is hiding inside in this snap. It doesn’t go with everything but when it does go with my outfit you’ll be sure its the one Im picking! Its slightly smaller in-size and doesn’t fit quite as much in as some of my other bags which just means you have to be more selective of what your taking but thats just the sacrifice you make for having such a cute bag on your arm.
Black Mock Croc
This is the newest bag to join my collection and was a Christmas present, it’s fast become a firm favourite. Can you believe its from M&S, pretty darn cute for them aye! I love the top handle and that it has a cross body strap too. I love a bit of mock croc and gold hardware plus it fits lots in!
I remember getting this red cutie in the Christmas sale. i loved the shape and the gold hard wear and it fast became one of my all time favourite bags! The cross body strap is just long enough to not being annoying, it almost looks like a bumbag. Its the perfect size to hold my lippie, phone, purse and camera with room to spare. I really can cram a lot in this little bag.
This bag was such good value, i think it was something like £25 and is really good quality. The shape and those wooden handles are what sold it to me. It also has a cross body strap which is very handy for when you get sick of holding it and want your hands free. I just think it adds that little something special to any outfit.
Since moving to LA this bag has moved from a summer bag to a daily bag, with the move this bag has seen a lot more use. Even though it looks small it fits a fair amount in, what can I say I like a bag to fit all my essentials with me. I love the light straw and black trim but what i bloody love is the tortoiseshell handle. I actually can’t take credit for this bag, Dave is the one that spotted it while out on a shopping trip and i am glad he did it’s perfect little day bag.
