Holding On To Autumn
Not sure if I've mentioned it very much (*emoji eyes*) but Autumn is my favourite season, so naturally I'm clinging on to it for as long as I possibly can. To be fair, I feel like it's hanging around for way longer this year (yay), usually blink and you miss it but there are still so many leaves to be crunched in, colours to be enjoyed and corresponding outfits to be worn! I pretty much love an Autumnal tone all year round if were being honest here but it becomes particularly OOC within the season itself. Browns, beiges, burgundies, burnt oranges, tans - you name it - I love 'em all, however recently it had come to my attention that I don't own a tan bag? I know, I'm shocked too! So queue this toffee dream from Modalu. The Bailey cross body camera style bag is part of their new AW17 collection and fills said gap in my wardrobe perfectly. I have more outfit ideas for it to be styled with than you can shake a stick at, and its made from a super soft leather that I think will only get better with age too.
For it's first outing I decided to go all out Seventies (my fave) and style it with this super cute star print shirt from Sezane (inked in my shop section), my trusty Stella McCartney flares and the Margot Tenenbaum inspired faux fur of dreams. I've had this coat for almost ten years and I still love it just as much as the day I got it (for a fiver in a charity shop might I add). The golden-beige tone goes perfectly with this bag - brown has basically been my colour of the season so far, I've been banging on about it for ages and buying anything and everything in this shade so I'm super happy to have this much needed tan camera number in my wardrobe now to fill the hole. Not only does it look and feel beaut, but it's literally the perfect size for fitting all of your essentials in too (my camera included - hurray!) without being too big that you feel the need to pop the kitchen sink in there. I'll be taking this timeless piece into many seasons to come as well I'm sure.
