The Yellow Bag

When it comes to bags, neutrals dominate my collection. From seashell pinks to bluish greys and creamy beiges, it’s rare to see a colour that could be described in one clear word. So imagine my surprise upon picking up this little yellow beauty in Zara. Of course, it could be a little to do with the fact that the GG Marmont matelassé mini in yellow has been draped over every blogger’s arm in the past few months. Or, more wishfully, it could be that this is exactly what my wardrobe has been calling out for to mix things up. After all, this is the bag that started my love of wearing colour. That, or my equally colourful surroundings in Mexico, where I debuted this new friend.

What do you think of this bag? Are you more into neutrals or bright colours when it comes to accessories?

    Such a perfect little bag! I love the vibrant colours and you paired it so well with unfussy outfits on holiday that made the bag itself sing. Btw, loving the photography flatlay of “what’s in my bag” hehe xxx

      Thank you so much, that’s such a lovely compliment <3 Yellow is great for summer and it helps that it's also very on trend at the moment! I'm hoping to try something bigger in yellow, like maybe a top, which is quite brave of me! Hope you find your perfect yellow bag! <3

    Yes! This probably what my closet needs too! A pop of color, or something just to mix things up. 🙂

      It’s nice to experiment with colour through accessories! It isn’t as risky as, say, a top or skirt for those of us who aren’t used to colour as much! 🙊

      Yayyyyy for bag twins! Yessss I was exactly the same – at first, I was drawn to the blue because it’s more of a muted colour but the yellow just stood out so much! <3

    I love bright accessorises, but when it comes to bags, I always had issues with red or colourful. With colour transfer and easily marked. Unlike when you get a more darker tone. It is based on preference though I suppose. 🙂 I love your yellow bag though. It is so pretty and would defiantly make an exption for 🙂 http://www.bauchlefashion.com/2017/06/an-italian-summer-holiday.html

      That’s a really good point, actually! I’ve had the opposite where a cream bag was stained by a dark denim jacket so I can totally see it happening the other way around too! We just have to be super careful haha! Thank youuuuu, I’m glad you like it ☺️
