Add a pop of colour

One of my favourite ways to add a pop of colour to my outfit is to accessorise. I have been on a quest to find a bottle green coloured bag on the high street, and have been quite successful, so I thought I would share my findings with you. Taking inspiration from the designer edit below, any of these jewel coloured beauties would give your winter outfit a little colour boost. I have added the velvet alphabet coin purse to the edit as A) it’s absolutely gorgeous and B) a coin purse is essential if you are carrying a smaller handbag. I have one from Etsy and it fits in my little wad of cards, a couple of notes and a few coins, leaving room for my other handbag essentials. I must admit I usually carry two bags. An ‘outfit’ bag such as these below and a fabric tote that will hold my water bottle, umbrella and book if I am travelling on the tube.
