Say hello to my newest purchases. As you can see, I stick to my “don’t buy anything that’s not a necessity and doesn’t match with stuff you already have” rule. Since the strap of my beloved black backpack snapped, I’ve been looking for a decent replacement. I’m such a fan of backpacks, they’re very versatile – they’re stylish enough to replace any bag and are really useful when you have to carry a lot of stuff around. This one seemed perfect to me the moment I laid my eyes on it. It’s big enough to fit everything I need, although not too big to look like I’m going camping. The quilted detailing adds a bit of chic to an otherwise sporty item. And speaking of those, the grey Vans look-a-likes fit perfectly in that category as well. I already have those in black and they’re so effin’ comfortable that I literally wear them every day. Also, they can be combined with every style and every piece, ever. So you understand why I had to have the grey pair too.

And last but not least, the black faux leather bracelet. I actually have a very similar belt and before you even think about it, no – I don’t plan on playing that matchy-matchy game and wearing them at the same time. But combined with the other gold accessories I own, it would look sweet! Can’t wait to play around with these new toys, I’ll keep you updated on how’s that going.

@Anon: Whenever I write it’s a non branded item, it means I got it from a local tiny shop in my town. But I’m sure there are similar ones in online shops! x

I was so shocked when I scrolled to the bottom of the post to find out the items are brand-less! A little disappointed because I know I can’t have that backpack… but really cool! Awesome posts girl. xx
