My search for the perfect crossbody bag| Chloe mini Faye bag|

I must admit I find a perfect cross body almost on a weekly basis (very fickle) However this week I did fall for a Chloe and I do have a longstanding love of Chloe bags (at least 10 years and thats long!)

There are so many colours to choose from but these are favourites.

My top 10 belt bags they are my new obsession…..

Belt bags or bum bags whatever you want to call them are having a new lease of life. I for one am totally obsessed although I will admit I am not sure how many times I would use one so I would be cautious with price point!!

I have searched the net this morning for my favourites and I have included all price points. You will have to admit that they are all very cute and would work over most outfits.

They may only be big enough for your phone, keys, cards and lip stick but what else do you need. I think for me it would be the hands free shopping (well until you have shopping bags) I really don’t enjoy taking a tote to town!

I will start with the one I am going to try myself!

What have I been dreaming about this past week?

Well as you will all appreciate the first week back at work after a holiday is strange especially when you arrive home in winter. I have the tan but it isn’t really the season to show it off!

Thankfully I do love my job and I am always happy to return to my personal shopping and all of the lovely clients that I see on a daily basis.

There was a lot of sadness in store as there have been few colleagues who have passed away and my week ended with the passing away of a wonderful aunt who was 91 but as my dad said to me don’t be sad just think of all the happy times you shared.

I have been on a wardrobe refresh mission this week but I am struggling to find pieces that I love (for work) however I did find these Michael Kors sneakers yesterday (House of Fraser), they are perfect for running around store all day and will work dresses, jeans and pants.

I will wearing them with an Isabel Marant dress tomorrow! (cant wait)

I have to admit there is always a bag in my weekly mix, this week there two opps!

I have looked at the Chanel wallet on a chain bags for quite a few years so I was delighted to find this Gucci version of the same thing, it is so pretty….

I really do need (yes really!) a new pair of black ankle length wide leg  trousers to wear to work. I have so many gorgeous shirts, tees and shoes and the trousers make a great backdrop.

I love this houndstooth pair at Zara to wear with a white shirt to tee.

Zara houndstooth culottes £29.99 here

 

I think this black  pair are too good to miss (for now!)

Zara cropped trousers £19.99 here

This blouse will definitely be on list of things to try this week I do believe it has huge potential (we love potential)

Zara blouse with contrast topstitching £29.99 here

I am currently a little obsessed by belt bags, particularly any by Gucci but for the amount of times it would be used I think the price point needs to be lower!

Topshop Queenie Quilted Bum Bag £22 here

 

 

 

 

As if by magic they appeared right before my eyes…….

There I was thinking about my wardrobe going into the new year (denim shorts at the moment) and white ankle boots sprung to mind worn with my little dresses (tanned legs required), then as if by magic I stumbled across these little beauties at Topshop.

 

Topshop Alfie buckle boots £89 here

 

Oh dear this is a major obsession alert Valentino boots…..

There I was innocently checking Mytheresa.com when suddenly there they were in front of me.

These boots are simply perfect for spring/summer with tanned legs, I am already concocting outfits. I know it is freezing outside and they are hardly snow boots but their time will come. I do realise that someone will point out that bear more then a passing resemblance to my pink Acne star boots but really they are very different VERY!
