Bag lady...

Whilst I was browsing for shoes on the Spartoo website, I  noticed that they also did bags. I had been looking for a new bag for work as I didn't have a bag big enough to hold my handbag essentials and my lunch [note: I eat a lot, especially when I am at work]. I figured a messenger bag would be most practical as they tend to be one big pocket and whilst I was lusting after the brightly coloured bags, I settled for the more practical black shade.. 

Jacket: Tesco, bag: c/o Spartoo, jumper: Topshop, dress: NW3 by Hobbs, shoes: Dorothy Perkins
As I have said before, I can get away with wearing fairly casual outfits to work and this denim dress is so comfortable! I love the fact that it is longer than the majority of dresses on the High Street [some of them are literally bum-skimming!] and is a really flattering fit. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this if we ever get a summer, just imagine it with bright colours and sandals... Plus, I get to wear denim without wearing jeans all the time! ;)

My favourite part of this though is definitely the bodice, I think a sweetheart neckline is universally flattering, especially if you have a figure like mine. I loved the contrast between the soft angora of the jumper and the more utilitarian denim too, I love texture in outfits!

Outtake of the day: nearly being blown away by the gale force wind outside. Although it was fairly bright and sunny, it was absolutely freezing, I think the weather is struggling to make up its mind too!

What type of bag do you have for work? How do you wear denim?
P.S. This post was written in collaboration with Spartoo

I also need a large bag for my lunch at work too! And it's all about the sweetheart necklines. That dress looks great on you :) x
