So, it’s official. Autumn has arrived and we’re all loving it as it’s the perfect opportunity to wear boots, shop for a new coat and get cosy! But for me, the change in seasons signals my seasonal bag swap! I’m a handbag girl through and through and digging out a new handbag as the weather turns is a true signal, change is gon’ come…
So, when I delved into the wardrobe recently for the quarterly switcharoo, I realised I no longer have a black cross body bag. I’m much-preferring crossbody styles at the minute and the absence of one meant a shopping trip was on the cards!
Matalan is my shop of choice when I want to get something nice without spending too much but a piece that the world and his wife doesn’t own yet. This black mini tote bag was just £14 and I love the simplistic design and gold hardware. The studs on the cross body strap are a bit different and it’s big enough for everyday.
So, what do I carry in my bag on a daily basis?
A final shout-out to this gorgeous throw I picked up in Matalan. I’d been after a new one to have on the bed and to use on the sofa now it’s colder at night and I love the cream/pink/grey design of this one!
