It’s no secret that I’m a huge fangirl of Cath Kidston. Having been a long-time lover of their quintessentially British floral prints, delightful dinnerware (which has seen me from university kitchens to my first home) – and cosy pyjamas, it’s no surprise that their fashion offering is just as beautiful as the rest. But it’s far more than gorgeous blouses, printed dresses and picnic-to-party knits (although that would be wonderful). With a shiny new collection of bright leather bags, there was no convincing needed that there was a gap in my wardrobe for a timeless new accessory, and this plum cross body stole my heart from the word go.
With the gorgeous collection built of backpacks, duo pocket cross body’s and the slightly larger Henshall bags- there’s quite literally a style for everyone- with the leather cross body ticking every box for yours truly.
Paired with a floaty spring blouse (that doubles up as the perfect layering piece)- this little carry-all goes with pretty much everything in my wardrobe. Perfect for not only days dashing around the city (where I naturally throw everything from my keys to the kitchen sink inside)- it’s also a great piece for adding a little life to looks when you don’t have the time to start colour coordinating first thing too.
Thankfully, if you’re someone that needs a little more space (or prefers something slightly more muted), there’s plenty of extra choices – with metallics, rich ink blues and black styles with pretty gold hardware too. I didn’t think I needed any more bags- but when they’re as timeless as this little super group, how can you say no? Happy early Valentine’s to me, love me!
