Office Appropriate... bag!

 My New Favourite Bag!

I have a little obsession with black. Not only does it go with everything, you just can't go wrong with a bit of black! You can imagine my delight when I saw this B-E-A-U-tiful bag in Primarni (Primark) of all places. It's an absolute bargain at £10 and it has replaced my Ted Baker (black of course) bag I used to use for everyday. 

Bag: Primark

 At the moment I've only seen it in black, but I'm sure it's bound to come out in, in at least a few alternative colours. Aside from that, it's extremely practical with pockets and zips to hold all your daily essentials.

I also love it because you can add a few personal touches to it. Right now I've tied a leopard print cross scarf to the handle.  The scarf (also from Primark) is quite versatile in itself. I think it was about £2 and I've worn it loads. I like to clash the print with patterned block colour outfit giving it a perfect preppy look for everyday wear.

I also noticed a pretty much identical bag in Topshop at the weekend. It adds white into the mix for a classic monochrome look. The long strap is removable (like the Primark version), but for £42 I would like to think it would last longer than my Primark copy. It's really up to you which you prefer. Take a look at the Topshop version here: Winged Zip Detail Handbag - Topshop

Office Appropriate is born!

The Beginning... 

 So after thinking about it for a while, I've finally joined the world of blogging. I've just recently been offered my dream job in retail, in the heart of London. I hope this blog not only provides me with a companion for that long commute in each day, but also brightens yours, whilst giving you some inspiration for that "office appropriate" outfit each day.

I'm also hoping to provide you with some entertainment by making a YouTube channel to follow along with this blog. Right now it's looking kind of bare... but soon I hope to give it some love and film some content for it. 

So here goes, I'm set with my camera at the ready. Time to begin blogging. I hope you enjoy.
