HANDBAGS & GLADRAGS

Wedding season is well & truly here, we’ve been to two weddings in the past few weeks with another one in July, and what’s a girl to do but get a new bag & frock!

I was recently gifted this gorgeous Carvela bag from House of Fraser, I just love tote bags as they’re just so functional & stylish. So as we’re taking the little man with us to the wedding I need to use a bigger bag than my usual clutch for a few bits for him, but wanted something pretty compact that will look stunning with a dress and this bag is perfect.

I’ve ordered this dress from House of Fraser which I think will be  fab contrast for the bag, it’s elegant but still pretty funky with the panelling detail so I’ll be able to wear it again for nights out with the girls or an evening out to a posh restaurant with the hubby.

The Carvela Danna winged tote is a perfect bag for me, I love the long strap and short handles which means you can wear it over the body, over the shoulder or as a bit of arm candy.

It’s small enough for everyday use, nice & compact in shape but it’s quite wide meaning you can fit a lot in there. I took Archie to the Manchester Museum this weekend and manage to fit my usual purse, phone and other mum junk along with my camera, pull ups & wipes plus a drink for Archie. It was crammed but it all fit without the need for carrying something resembling a duffel bag!

The colour is stunning. I was unsure of choosing a bag in a bright colour and normally go for fail safe black or tan but loved the coral, it’s so different to what I’d normally choose. I’m so glad I went for the pop of colour as it really adds a bit of interest to outfits.

Would you have gone for something similar in a bright colour or a classic black?
