Why I've Stopped Sharing My Bag Collection Online

 An outfit is never complete without a bag but for some reason when it comes to my blog I simply haven't felt inspired by my collection.

I don't have a huge bag collection and I'm definitely not drowning in designer bags unlike other fashion bloggers these days (that's in no way a dig at them - oh how I wish I were living in a sea of designer bags!) but the small collection that I do have sometimes gets a little underwhelming, I get bored pretty quickly and the task of moving what seems like my life from one handbag into another is a task far too daunting for me to tackle more than once every few weeks.

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.

  1. This is the type of bag that does look good with everything though! So here's no proven with repeatedly wearing it! I constantly wear my leather next cross body bag that is like a Chanel bag with its quilted design and flat. But I love it so much so might as well get my wear out of it!

    1. Oh it's so true, it's great to find something you really love and get as much use as you can out of it but when it comes to blogging I definitely feel like I need to change things up every so often hence why it's proven to be an issue for me. Although, there's nothing wrong with loving a bag so much you can't stop wearing it! X

  2. I love the bag and it will go with everything as it's a classic shape/style and the colour is perfect! :)
    I'm like you and have a small non-designer handbag collection and get easily bored but working to use different pieces depending on the season, that way I can constantly rotate x

    1. It honestly does, which is why I just can't stop using it! A change of seasons is always good to feel inspired once more X
