The Post of Bags

It is a ritual now that when the season changes a new bag is generally one of the items  that we turn to. Also, bags are never enough because the huge choice make us wish for  something to hold, perfect  for any occasion, and if during the day we opt for a big bag to carry all of our essentials, during the evening we go for smaller versions that just holds a phone and a lipstick. I've found a lot of ideas but I have tried to restrain myself from posting everything I liked because you would have read for ages.
The Amie Crossobody bag by Accessorize have been made in all of my favourite colours, Purple, Orange and Teal. Made of faux leather, they have gold hardware and the inside comprises of two compartments and a zip pocket.With this season colours, they will be perfect with anything.
This Emily Tote bag is part of the new collection by The Cambridge Satchel Company in 100% leather Bay Celtic Grain colour. It will hold a laptop and all your essentials for a busy day at work. Available in 6 different colours it will be your favourite throughout the year.
I am a big fan of Cath Kidston so I always pop at the store to see what's new to buy, especially items that I've seen at the Press day and put on my wish list. This Paintbox Flowers Stratton shoulder bag with matching purse is fantastic, because being made of PVC coated cotton, is perfect for those rainy days, feeling confident that the content of your handbag, and your handbag won't get any problems. I like the new metal branding that makes this bag more grown up.
This half moon shaped Shadwell bag by Fiorelli is stunning. I love its berry colour and the hardware all over the bag, from the chained handle to the studded trims. The inside is fully lined with a zip pocket. The same style is available in black.
A leather bag is something that becomes more and more beautiful ageing. This Hathaway Mini Leather tote by Joules  is not so mini at all, it is just smaller than the full size version. I like the oxblood colour of this one but a tan version is available as well. It is full of pockets and as well as the hand strap has got a shoulder strap so that can be worn as cross body.
It is a very classic style the Melanie bag by L.K. Bennett but the two tone detail gives that twist  that makes it very new. It is made of 100% Saffiano leather in red and blue or available in taupe and black and blue and black. Hand held with two short handles, it will infuse sophistication  to any outfit.
I like the bag pairing with this 1970s inspired print  scarf attached by M&S Collection for Marks & Spencer. The teal colour is very easy to match to any outfit and as well as a short handle, the bag can be worn crossbody, thanks to a thin shoulder strap. The scarf can be detached  in case of a sudden gust of wind or if you want to tie your pony tail.

This season the combo bag+scarf is very popular and here we've got another take on the trend with this Wrap Scarf Handle Tote Bag by Matalan. This black tote fastens with a zip, it is made of PVC with inside lining and zipped pocket. I find it a really gorgeous bag, classic for all ages and contemporary at the same time, and the price is just amazing.
Keeping the classic theme for fabrics and patterns, this Blue Boucle Hobo Bag by Next has got a shoulder strap in faux leather, it is lined and it has an internal zip pocket. You can match a purse as well, available in store.
Just wear this sparkly Sequin shoulder bag by Peacocks and any outfit will light up. Who said that sequined are confined to the evening? We need a bit of excitement in our outfits and this bag makes just that, jazzing up a black coat or other muted garments and making your commute a bit more interesting. It has an adjustable shoulder strap, it is lined with an internal zipped pocket and one on the
Prince of Wales is another of those classic patterns and this season very on trend. Primark came out with this lovely bag in a structured shape with a detachable shoulder strap. Its design will match any outfit and it will be perfect either during the day or for going out.
Writing this post is quite difficult for me because I love all the bags I feature in it and I would buy them all. This bag makes not exception. The Priscilla Bead Handle Tote by Russell & Bromley is made of beautiful metallic green leather, the handles are beaded in a two tones shade from green to amber and there is a thin shoulder strap if you prefer to wear it across your body. There is an internal zip pocket as well as another one with no zip and a phone pocket.
As I was writing previously, a leather bag gets better with age and this Relaxed Hobo by Shinola is one of those bags that will improve its appearance time after time. I love this kind of bags because after each use it becomes softer and darker and in a way you feel that it is unique. It is worthy to invest in it because it will last forever. It is available in tan and black.
Tumi is another brand that from being specialised in luggage and backpacks, has been designed more women accessories in the last few seasons. The Kiran Tote has got fantastic features, among others an external sleeve that can be used to attach the bag to the trolley handle so that you are hand free and your bag is secured. Available in black, purple or pink, this is a bag perfect for the working woman, because she can  store her laptop which is going to be care of thanks to a padded compartment. The detachable shoulder strap and internal pockets for  gadgets are just a couple of other useful features.
