Autumnal Arm Candy




It's getting darker earlier in the day, Halloween-themed emails are landing in inboxes and fluffy socks have gone from being optional to essential - Autumn is most definitely on our doorstep!  I've spent the best part of today intermittently changing over my wardrobe for the new season.  I'm not at all ruthless enough to create a capsule wardrobe, however all the same I've noticed some gaps that are in need of filling by versatile essentials.  One of these gaps is accessories but more specifically, handbags!  

Vivienne Westwood Derby Multi Tartan Backpack (House of Fraser) - Going back a while, I used to be attached to a camel Burberry backpack thanks to its chic and yet practical design.  Note I said camel - it only lasted a year before looking as though it was vintage!  The colours of this Vivienne Westwood piece, however, suggest a quality my last backpack didn't have - endurance


Reiss Jarvis Mini Shoulder Bag - I'm crazy for suede at the moment and so this blush beauty has well and truly caught my eye  


Aspinal of London Marylebone Medium Tote (House of Fraser) -  I wasn't aware until recently that Aspinal of London was available for purchase at House of Fraser.  If you ask me, this iconic leather bag is the epitome of arm candy!     


Mango Stud Crossbody Bag - Both Mango and Zara never fail to impress on the bag front.  Whether we're talking crossbody bags, clutches or totes, they always seem to have it covered.  I recently purchased and styled the Mock Croc Messenger bag by Zara - I've certainly had my eyes opened to the increasing quality of high street accessories!


Furla Dolce Vita Tote Bag (House of Fraser) - Currently on sale at House of Fraser, the Dolce Vita tote by Furla would be the ideal size for work and leisure alike



Well, I don't care that it's only six in the evening, I'm freezing cold and it's time to wrap myself up in a chunky pink dressing gown.  Bliss!  I hope you're all keeping warm and be sure to let me know which of these pieces gets you the most excited for Autumnal styling!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  8. What is it about the change of seasons that calls for new accessories most notably a new bag...this is really a splendid selection. The Aspinal of London Marylebone Medium Tote is totally catching my eye though because of that beautiful color and structured silhouette.

  19. Days are growing longer over here sadly. I love your picks above, especially that Mango crossbody. I think you should invest in that one for sure. I also had a little LOL moment at the thought of your Burbury backpack. As much as I adore light hued handbags, they just don't stand the test of time/wear unless you wrap it in bubble wrap!
