Reasons to love
1. Use this Aztec fabric weave clutch bag for the essentials when without the little ones then pop it in a tote when you’ve more to carry for days with the family.
2. Bold sunglasses are having a moment and these chunky square glasses in tortoiseshell are high on my hitlist.
3. Because if we must take the little ones to soft play, at least we can wear great socks when we deposit our shoes at the door.
4. With a block heel and rounded toe these ‘Piece of cake’ heels will feel more comfortable than a pointed stiletto shoe and in sparkling silver they’re definite showstoppers. Wear with distressed, relaxed jeans and a slogan tee for drinks or a BBQ.
5. Boho, check. Embellished, check. Flatform, check. Ticking all the boxes for must-have summer flats the ‘Jayden’ wide fit espadrille will add a fun update to your dressed-down style.
6. Another block heel, but this time lower if you’re not so keen on heels. Wear these ‘Show piece’ embellished heels in the same way as no.4 to lift a casual look. But if you have daughters like mine, you’ll have to hide them away because they’ll be clip-clopping around wearing these at every opportunity!
7. If you don’t have a backpack in your bag collection, why not? Practical and on-trend, it’s an essential for days out. This Mini suede backpack will add colour to even the plainest outfit.
8. Another essential is a cross-body bag and why choose black or brown when you could have yellow!
9. If your bag closet is already well-stocked with the basics, take a look at the ‘Cultura’ guitar strap bag; the wide canvas strap is your SS17 update.
10. And if in doubt with any clothes or accessories this season, just throw all the pom-poms and tassels at them. No need to wonder what outfits to wear this Glamorous envelope cross body bag with because you can rock it with anything.
