There’s nothing like getting a brand new bag to perk you up and have you look forward to the autumn/winter season. My little baby Rose is now three weeks old and mummy is feeling tired! Having a nice new bag to take out means I feel a little more like ‘me’ and ready to tackle the day ahead. Of course, the baby changing bag is now my main accessory but this grab bag from Ilex London is small enough for me to bring out with me on those rare days out!
I love the linen colour of the bag, it will go with so much in my wardrobe and I think it’ll be a nice change from the usual dark coloured handbags I tend to use during the autumn/winter months. The bag is made with saffiano grain leather and is also available in black and a beautiful caramel colour. You can always count on Ilex London for a sophisticated and luxurious feeling leather bag.
For these pictures, I wore my Mexx kick flare jeans (pre-pregnancy ones!), a purple nursing top and a cosy Staples coverup, along with Dunnes brown leather ankle boots and my beautiful feather necklace from Beaverbrooks. I’m happy to say I’m feeling good in my post-pregnancy self. Breastfeeding is doing wonders for getting my figure back and I actually felt confident in this outfit. It helped that the baby slept long enough for me to do my makeup and hair!
Disclosure: Ilex London sent me the Valerie grab bag to review on the blog.
