Where to find me

Wishlist | Black leather tote bag

I have been looking for a new everyday/work bag for quite some time. I love my bag inc 'Victoria' bag but I want something a little different. 
I hate to admit it has turned into a slight obsession trying to find the perfect black leather tote bag. I knew I was picky but I hadn't realised quite just how specific I was with my requirements!

I am looking for a large but not too large leather tote bag, that preferably has a has a lining, the straps can't be too thin, as I tend to cart around too much stuff and it will get heavy. Inside compartments or pockets are a plus and I would like some sort of closure or zip on the top to protect my items should it rain. I want it to be completely plain, with only a small or ideally no company logo, good quality leather, but without the crazy high designer price tag, and it must be black. Obviously.

Not much to ask right?! Perhaps a bit ridiculous, after all, it is only a bag. But surprisingly I have found a few that fit my unrealistically long list of criteria. Unfortunately both companies currently only ship to the USA and Canada but fortunately for me should I decide to take the plunge I am going to be in New York in a few weeks so I could order one and have it delivered there.

Now if I could only decide between them...

Say hello to my first proper outfit post in a long time. I'm feeling a little rusty but hopefully things will slowly come back to me!

I would also like to add that I haven't gone mad and started wearing loads of colour all of a sudden, (my Instagram can prove that!). But I bought this jacket to wear to a wedding, it matched the dress (outfit post here) and I needed something at short notice

These satin pinky hued bombers are everywhere, and I really could of shopped around a bit more for something cheaper (like I normally would) but I was in a rush getting something to wear and this one was right in front of me in my local Topshop!

I have only worn it a couple of times, as black is my complete and utter safe comfort zone when it comes to clothing but I do like it and even had a couple of compliments when wearing it!

Outfit | Wedding

Dress: Asos
Shoes: New Look
Jacket: Topshop can be seen on (here)

Not the best quality outfit picture, I'll admit.
I went to a wedding with my boyfriend (that's the guy in the picture!) a couple of weeks ago now.
I had planned to take a few more blog friendly pictures of my outfit but the wedding was the first time meeting lot of his extended family and outfit snaps sort of slipped my mind.

I wore the dress with the jacket from my most recent haul video (linked below). It got unexpectedly warm and I didn't really need it but i think it matched the dress quite well.

You may wonder why no black?! I think it may be because someone once told me you can't wear black to weddings, could have been my Mum's influence (she has banned me from wearing black to family events in the past) but I did fancy getting a little dressed up. As I wear all black every day, another shade makes it feel more special.

Don't expect any other colour injections anytime soon but I might just wear the jacket!
