Now the weather is getting loads colder, I’ve switched from my trusty Fjallraven Kanken bag to my favourite autumn bag. I love having a new bag for each season, and this one from River Island makes such a nice addition to an outfit. The colour is SO GORGEOUS and I totally love this bag!
It’s a few years old now, so you can’t get it on River Island’s website anymore, but I absolutely adore it. It’s a nice burgundy colour, so it isn’t too in your face but it isn’t boring either. It’s really quite small, which I prefer because it means I’ll only bring my essentials and what I need with me instead of loads of pointless bits and bats. It’s a bit of a satchel style, and the hardwear is gold which is something I wouldn’t usually go for but I really like it here.
In the first front pocket, I usually keep my phone but I was taking the pictures with it. I also keep my Jack Wills purse, it’s more of a coin purse but I prefer a small purse because it takes up less room and there’s less fuss. I also have my Burts Bees peppermint lip balm, it’s really moisturising and I bring this everywhere.
In the main compartment I have a card holder. I pay for most things on my debit card, and I also keep my bus pass in here. I also have a mascara and a compact mirror, along with a pen. I always have a pen with me, you really never know when you’ll need one!
In the very back zipped compartment I have some plasters and some bobbles. I also have some chewing gum. I’m prone to blisters very often, so plasters are a must for me. Chewing gum is always an essential too, and I can’t go a day without a bobble!
So, thats all thats in my bag. What are your bag essentials? Do we share any of the same things?
