Why You Need These 6 Classic Mulberry Bags

Why I Love Mulberry & 6 Classic Bags To Buy I’ve had a bit of a roller coaster ride with Mulberry over the years. It was my first designer bag brand that I truly loved and that was back in 2011, I even met the founder, Roger Saul, at Kilver Court in Shepton Mallet where the brand was founded (there’s still an outlet shop there where I bought my very first Mulberry bag) as it’s not too far from my city of Bath. I used to love the fact that the bag designs were classic, yet cool, and were definitely affordable compared to other high end designers. I own 6 Mulberry bags which I pretty much got between 2011-2013 and after that, I sort of went off the brand a bit in favour of others, and I will tell you why. Instead of all Mulberry bags being made in England where their factory was, they started outsourcing to China and Turkey which I thought was a bit unfair. Some were still made in England, but the majority were not and they were still keeping the same price tag even though they weren’t being made here. This really did put me off as they had had an increase in prices too, which I thought wasn’t right given the facts. However, a couple of years ago the brand did quite a large price increase (compared to what they used to cost) and I was even more shocked, but I didn’t realise why at the time. Anyway, I wore my Mulberry Lily in Oak on holiday a few weeks ago (see here) and…

A Burgundy Leather Jacket Outfit

A Burgundy Leather Allsaints Jacket Outfit Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you’re all doing well! I know lots of things are going back to normal now in the UK and that’s exciting! I hope they continue because it’s been really stressful for all of us. Adam and I shot these photos earlier on in the year actually, and again, I hadn’t got around to posting them, but I’m glad that I have quite a few outfits left over to share with you at the moment. I’m planning on shooting new ones in a couple of weeks time, so that’s exciting! I haven’t done an outfit shoot since March! Wow, how time flies! Anyway, for this look, I was wearing an Allsaints Dalby Leather Jacket in Dark Raspberry Pink (buy it on Revolve Clothing by clicking here), which I got in the sale earlier this year for around 60% off! I took a size UK 8 in this one, if you were wondering! I’d always wanted a burgundy leather jacket and finally found one that was perfect! I paired it with my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Grey, my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black, a simple Black Long Sleeve Top from GAP, and my Mulberry Lily Bag in Oxblood. There’s something about a burgundy, black, and grey combination that I love. These shades just complement each other really well. Are you a fan? Again, as these photos were shot a few months back, I was a bit more curvier here than I am now as I’ve still lost all of the weight that I gained a while ago. I think…

The Palm Print Playsuit Outfit

The Palm Print Playsuit Outfit You know the summer is here when I start rocking the playsuits! Ha ha. Like last year when I was living in them, I’m kind of doing the same this year, but I’ve bought a lot of different versions, as I mentioned. One of my new ones is this gorgeous H&M Palm Print Playsuit and it’s so comfortable! Most of my new ones are from H&M and they only cost £12.99 at retail, so you can’t really go wrong! I always find it’s about how you style the high street pieces that makes it look expensive or really put together, which is why I always invest more in my accessories instead! To complete this H&M Playsuit, I wore my new Mulberry Small Darley in Rosewater (the one I picked up in the Factory outlet on the way back from Lyme Regis), I also chose my Rebecca Minkoff Pink Mules, some simple gold jewellery (the bracelet is here and the necklace is here), and a pair of the Saint Laurent Jerry Sunglasses that I’m wearing here. I mixed light pinks and black to complement the playsuit colour palette, and I really like how it turned out. You might have noticed that I went for something a bit different with my hair too, I went for a loose braid! Anyway, I’m keeping this blog post short, but let me know what you think, as always!

New Mulberry Pale Slate Bags For Summer

Mulberry Small Darley in Pale Slate As you know, I have been a fan of Mulberry since way back before 2010 when I opened this blog. It would be over 10 years now that I’ve loved the brand. My blog post that I wrote not long ago about the classic Mulberry bags that you need is one of my best performing posts this year, so I thought I would share with you the brand new colour leather from the brand that is gorgeous! It’s a perfect pale blue named ‘Pale Slate’ so I assume it has grey undertones, but what I am attracted to most, other than the cool and beautiful shade of leather, is the silver hardware. Usually Mulberry go for a brass or gold, so this is a nice change as I think this blue tone suits silver the most! It comes in almost all of their bag styles, accessories, and keyrings, as well as a 70’s print, but I’ve chosen 6 of my favourite Mulberry bags in Pale Slate to share with you! First up (above) is the Mulberry Small Darley (you might remember I reviewed it in Oak) and it’s my favourite that I have added to my wish list! The Small Darley is one of their iconic bags with the signature postman’s lock and is perfect for carrying essentials or valuables as it’s quite petite. It’s only 13cm by 19cm by 4.5cm, so you can see it’s the perfect small and compact design! I’m planning to check the Mulberry shop in Somerset soon as I drive past it, just to see how gorgeous this is…

The Tartan Corduroy Skirt With Boots

The Tartan Corduroy Skirt With Over The Knee Boots Happy Saturday everyone! I wanted to say thank you for the huge amount of love I had on my Jessica Rabbit costume for Halloween! You all seemed to love it so much, which makes me happy. As Autumn always brings me to life and I get inspired by everything around me, I love experimenting with my outfits and trying different things, and this outfit incorporates a bit of that, but also with my own, usual personal style. We did shoot these photos about a month ago when it was still fairly warm though, so you can be certain I am not venturing outside in a look like this until next year sometime now, ha ha. It’s crazy to me that it’s November already, it really is. For this outfit, I was wearing a Topshop Corduroy Tartan Skirt which I styled with the Topshop Fluffy Cropped Knit (you saw it here) as I’m really loving cropped knitwear right now. I thought this look would be perfect with my DUO Empress Over The Knee Boots though as I really love skirts with boots in the Autumn time. I kept the rest of it simple, finishing it off with my Swarovski Remix Bracelets and then adding in my Mulberry Lily in Oxblood. You’re finally seeing my birthday bag for the first time! If you remember, it was my 30th birthday present from everyone, and myself. I was going to do a review, but I decided not to as they discontinued it a month after I got it, so you can’t buy it anymore, so…

Mulberry Small Darley Bag Review

Mulberry Small Darley Bag in Oak Review I know I said I would be doing a review for you on my Mulberry Lily in Oxblood that I got for my birthday, but as I haven’t yet worn that bag and so many of you have commented on this one on both my blog and my Instagram, I thought I would review my Mulberry Small Darley in Oak Natural Grain Leather for you instead! You already know that I picked this bag up at the Mulberry outlet in Bicester Village as a sub, which just means it didn’t have the quality standard to make it to the boutiques due to a couple of internal scratches, so I got it for 20% off instead. Internal marks don’t bother me and they’re only super small, and other than those couple of scratches, the bag is perfect! You wouldn’t even know it was a sub at all, it still has the craftsmanship and standard that their regular bags have, so I couldn’t wait to share it with you! Here’s my review below! Click here to buy Mulberry Darley Bags online at Mulberry.com The Darley Style The Darley is actually one of Mulberry’s most famous collections. It features their iconic signature postman’s lock in gold brass and comes in so many different designs. They have the Small and Regular Darley like this one, a cosmetics pouch, a wallet, a belt, gloves, and even a cute little satchel which is cheaper again. It’s a fantastic signature line and one you should definitely think about if you’re planning on getting a Mulberry bag. The Design Details This…

How To Wear Green Skinny Jeans

Green Skinny Jeans With White Loafers As you all know, I’m not usually one to stick to specific seasonal clothing, so if I want to wear something and the temperature is accommodating, I will. This is one of those outfits. I know light greens and whites are usually reserved for spring (spring greens), but I wanted to wear the combination as we almost transition into the autumn. The reason being, I bought these Citizens of Humanity Rocket Crop Skinny Jeans in Canopy Green a few months ago just before the heat wave and I never got to wear them, which was such a shame as I was desperate to! I love the gorgeous shade of green that they are as it’s not too feminine or cute, or too masculine, it’s perfect! Plus, the Rocket Crop is my favourite jeans cut there is, so they’re a win, win pair of jeans for me! To make it a little more suitable for cooler weather, I styled these jeans with my Allsaints Manson Knitted Tank Top as the Porcelain White shade was perfect to keep things light. As for the footwear, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to wear Chelsea boots or something brown, but as soon as I saw my Sam Edelman Linnie White Mules sitting on my shelf, I thought they might actually be perfect, and they were! I think they help to keep the look casual and youthful, but still classy and put together. Plus, these Sam Edelman loafers are a great alternative to Gucci. Now getting to my accessories, my bag that I was wearing is my Mulberry Small…

Yumi Flamingo Print Jumpsuit At Lyme Regis

Yumi Flamingo Print Jumpsuit Outfit at Lyme Regis I’m feeling extremely summery today! I’ve been sat in the garden for a few hours under the shade of the tree, just relaxing and watching the insects and bees going about their business. I’ve had a headache for the past 48 hours so sometimes just getting outside and soaking up nature’s surroundings is just what I need. I feel extremely content as I’m writing this, instead of the usual overwhelming feeling. I usually have 3 days between each blog post as you know, but unfortunately I was a day late posting my Moschino Teddy Bear Slides review as I wasn’t very well, so this outfit post is coming early, so I can keep to my schedule. So for this look, this was one of the outfits that I wore when I was in Lyme Regis and I love how easy it is! It’s basically just my Yumi Flamingo Jumpsuit (now on sale) which I styled with my Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses, my Mulberry Lily Bag in Oak, and my Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Watch. I only took easy pieces while we were away, so that consisted of a pair of jeans and a shirt for travelling, and my playsuits/jumpsuits as they make outfits that bit easier to put together. I got this Yumi Flamingo Jumpsuit last month and I fell in love with it. I’ve never really been much of a jumpsuit person (except this outfit here) and now I am wearing them all the time! It’s actually incredibly flattering with the wrap detailing and the elasticated waist. I can’t get enough of…
