Can't It Still Be Summer?

I do usually love Autumn. I love the crunchy leaves underfoot and the cosy nights in sipping hot chocolate. I love the warm autumn colours and big snuggly jumpers. I just don't feel like I got enough of summer this year.

I know it's been a long hot one compared to other years, but issues I touched on in my last post meant I didnt really get to enjoy it all as much as I'd hoped. One thing that's bringing in a touch of summer to my life at the minute is this very pretty summery bag.

I love the Vendula London unique bags, and this one you may recognise from my floral wishlist post. I'm so happy to now have it in real life!

The pansy mini-bag is just the right size to fit in all my essentials: phone, purse, keys and emergency lip balm will all go in with room to spare despite it's petite size. Being small, it won't overtake an entire outfit, just provide an attractive and practial highlight. It's my absolute top pick for a summer wedding!

I really like that it can be carried two ways - the attached handles are great for those who like to keep a firm grasp on their handbag, but the detachable strap is brilliant for anyone who prefers a more hands-free approach.

The detailing on the bag is wonderful - the pansies (my favourite flower!) are all individually attached in materials of a variety of textures and colours, giving the flowers a real 3D, touchable quality. The zip-pull is a leaf too! The bags are so detailed and cleverly designed!

I'm slowly getting used to the idea that summer is done with this year, but I still have this bag to make me think of summer sun! Plus it's currently reduced!

Vendula also have a range of more A/W friendly bags too. The George could convince me that autumn isn't so bad after all! You can check out the full Vendula range on their website, and keep an eye on their twitter and facebook for any new releases!

  2. What a cute summery bag! I love the detail on it - especially the zip pull! What a lovely touch. I'm definitely a summer girl, although I always come around to autumn in the end. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

  3. I'm a summer girl too, but I'm embracing Autumn this year as its been so mild. What a lovely bag, I'm a bit of a bagaholic, you can never have too many. I love that you can wear it two different ways. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove x
