Two exciting things to share here, starting with my new Leopard Camera bag from Accessorize. This 'Ronnie Camera Bag' was all over the blog-esphere last season - specifically the red one which had interchangeable straps and my blog crush, Alex from The Frugality styled it paired with a leopard strap which I admired every time she featured it.
It's not a leather bag though, which put me off a little at the time but then I kicked myself for not getting one - I saw and tried it on in-store several times too! All sold out of course now...
So when Alex started rocking her new season leopard camera bag from Accessorize on insta-stories this week, I was straight back into to get one. I got the last one in the shop - with 20% off thanks to a reward card promotion running this weekend. The bag is still in stock online on this link, though the 20% promotion isn't running online.
Second exciting thing I want to share is my first successful alternative to skinny jeans. I've tried them all over the years - cropped, flared, mom, boyfriend and I could never quite get the fit right - they always knocked my proportions off making me look much heavier on my bottom half.
But I think these H&M ones from the sale rail are ticking the boxes of a more modern shape without all the bulk on the bottom half. Perhaps it helps that they are grey/black? Anyway, they were only £7 (down from £29.99) and I'm excited about wearing them. They work with ankle boots and slip on trainers (I've checked) and I think they will be good with sandals come summer (remember summer? seems so long ago)
Jacket - Marc Cain via DejaVu
Scarf - Zara (past season)
Black Cashmere Crew Neck - John Lewis (officially my most worn item this winter!)
Jeans - H&M (similar here)
I'm realising now I've taken them off that I didn't really capture a good picture of them close up but basically, they've a stepped, unfinished hem going on and what H&M call a twisted seam. These (sold out) blue ones are quite close in shape. They're not online but there were a good few pairs of them in Forestside for anyone local.
That's all my excitement for this post...hope you're having a good week so far. Back soon...
