New (Mini) Bag On The Block

As a collector of mini bags, I’m always on the lookout for little purses to add to my collection. The latest to have caught my eye is this mini multicoloured fringe bag from Zara featuring the most intricate beadwork. I picked this one up during their sale back in December for just £20! A total steal. Felt it would be perfect for festival season as well as spring, which has evidently arrived here in London.

The weather this past weekend was perfect for exploring so I went to Hampstead for the day to this stunning hill garden with a rustic pergola. For this off-duty look, I paired the showstopping bag with a pair of denim jeans from Topshop and a velvet-embossed top from Zara.

The boots are from & Other Stories – my new found love since I’ve moved here.

The bag may seem tiny but I was able to fit quite a bit in. I’ve got a card holder, a mini hand cream, lip balm, my iPhone 8s, sun glasses, a mini mirror, a mini mascara and a roll on perfume, a.k.a. the essentials.
