My bag of the Summer from River Island



I am a massive bag lover and have a fair few, not as many as I have shoes, but that is a different story. For me accessories can make or break an outfit and can make the ordinary that bit cooler especially when you are adding a statement piece.
Amongst my collection I have a fair few River Island bags, for few reasons really, A) The handbag collection is always on point, B) The prices are reasonable C) The quality is always off the chart.

This seasons handbag collection is no different they have a tonne of cross body bags, which everyone and there dog are wearing this Spring as well as more "practical" tote or shoppers, perfect for work that can fit your laptop, pack lunch, makeup bag plus the  kitchen sink! I always get my purses from there to, I think they are the best quality on the high street.

Now my latest addition to my handbag family, is not particularly practical, but then who wants practical? This little beaut is a statement, its a nod to the woven bag trend, that everyone is buying into but OH MY it is just that bit more EXTRA. To start with the box shape rather than the sphere makes it different and what with the added embellishment this bag for me will be my bag of the Summer. I just can't get over how bloody lush it is.

It's not big by any means, but certainly big enough for money, keys phone, sunnies and some lippie. Making this ideal for popping out for a coffee or ice cream, drinks in a beer garden, a dinner date, you name it as long as you don't need loads of stuff and it's not raining you are onto a winner!

Now today's outfit is your classic " jeans and a nice top " pretty much my go to for a Spring/Summer evening out, and the woven cross body box bag* really works, the mix of florals with woven texture of the bag and my shoes makes the whole outfit fresh, and season appropriate, plus I love light wash denim in the Summer, and tend to wear it far more than black or darker denim.
