On Tuesday, the Selfridges email hit my inbox. I opened it up and plastered across the screen of my iPhone was one of the most beautiful handbags I’ve ever seen. The new Michael Kors collection. I had seen it about but was yet to fully check it out, as I’m on a complete spending ban, but I just had to have a look when the email came through. Michael has only gone and done it again, with a to-die-for range of his Selma and Jet Set tote bags. I have a black staple Jet Set and a tan Dressy Tote (which is quite hard to track down now as its been replaced by the Saffiano Leather Tote, but mine is soft leather. I like the contrast of having the Jet Set in Saffiano and the Dressy in softer leather). I actually earmarked MK several years ago, but in the past couple of years everyone seems to have gone mad for the label, which makes me so happy. Its so nice that a more affordable brand (well, in comparison to Mulberry’s price point) has gotten so popular, and I think the more well known the brand has got, the better and better the collections are getting.
Anyway, the new collection sees these classic designs released in a combination of black, tan and white (yes, all in one bag). Now, I know there’s that age old rule that you don’t mix black and brown, but I’m sorry, you totally can. These new prints are perfect for summer, and have the perfect balance of subtle elegance combined with a summery nautical feel. ABSOLUTELY DIVINE.
1. Jet Set Saffiano Leather Tote £310
2. Jet Set Tote £260
3. Selma Leather Tote £260
Well thats my next save-up purchase decided!
Having said I would never partake in OOTD, I hold my hands up. I have surrendered to the craze, and here is my first offering. Now, I wish I had gone for something a little more exciting for my first one, but its my new pale blue cami that I mentioned a few posts ago, so I just had to sneak it in there! For me this is simple but classic.
I’m wearing Topshop Cami, Topshop Joni Jeans (Super stretchy, love love love these), Warehouse Jacket, Topshop Boots, Michael Kors Handbag, and Primark Necklace.
I love the back of this warehouse jacket, and people always stop me in the street and ask me where its from! Sorry for the awkward mirror shots! I haven’t yet found my camera that I lost somewhere in my room a while ago! I am also wearing no makeup and my hair isn’t done, but as its a far away shot I don’t really mind posting it on here.
I bought my Michael Kors bag a couple of weeks ago as a 22nd birthday present to myself, and I could not be happier with it. It was £260 which I think is pretty reasonable, and the quality has so far been amazing. It is made of Saffiano leather, which is one of my faves. Although it doesn’t have the softness of cow leather, it is really strong and you can tell its going to last for ages. Prada use it a lot too.
The boots aren’t as red as they appear in this pic – they’re more of a deep maroon. I got these for Christmas from my Dad (he didn’t pick them, I chose them!) and they are the most comfortable heels I have ever worn!
I’m off to lunch today with some work friends and then hopefully catching a bit of sunshine! Have a lovely weekend all xx
