I've found a current favourite and I've settled, I completely fell in love with this crossbody bag from Carvela back in February and it's been my daily bag of choice ever since. It goes with everything and I was constantly sharing it on my blog and Instagram, so much so that it got to a point where even I was annoyed at seeing it pop up on my feed so often - not annoyed enough to stop me wearing it, but enough to stop me photographing it - so as I'd been feeling underwhelmed by my current collection that filtered through into my blog as most things tend to. The first way to tackle an issue is to accept it and I guess this is what this post is, it's my way of addressing it and make a mental note of what I want to change and how I'm going to change it. Obviously I'm just talking about handbags right now so it may all seem like a bit much but this can so easily be applied to other aspects of your life too so I think it's important to address the woes, even when it's as minor as a case of the style (or in this case, handbag) blues.
My spring wardrobe has already changed so drastically from what I was wearing throughout the winter, the sun has made me feel much more inspired and I'm seriously loving it! I've been experimenting with my style a lot more lately which I always find to be the most fun and exciting time. Stripes are a new favourite of mine, I've been wearing this stripe top from Dorothy Perkins loads recently, I think it's the pop of pink that appeals to me. I wanted to pair it with a blazer because I haven't worn one in so long and now that it's much warmer the task of finding lightweight outerwear is constantly on my mind, a blazer is a pretty good bet I think. The whole look is dressed down with a denim skirt - the best spring basic - and some black ankle boots to complete this outfit.
