Any items/links marked with '[AD - Pr products]' are products which have been gifted to myself from the respective brands, as this is classed as a form of advertising it is marked as such but I am under no obligation to feature these items and I never accept gifting from a brand that I don’t or wouldn’t naturally spend my own money on.

Whilst I link what I’m wearing and ‘affordable alternatives’ where possible I want to encourage you to look at your existing wardrobe to re-create my outfits and to consider shopping second hand ( #secondhandbutgrand ) for any additional items that you may want to add. But also remember that it’s my job to create content, hopefully to educate and help with style choices but this is why I have a more extensive wardrobe and the volume of clothing I have shouldn’t be used as a benchmark, so don't put pressure on yourselves to keep up with me or any other creators you see on social media.

If I may also recommend trying out Handbag Rental services like Cocoon Club https://www.cocoon.club
This is a great way to try before you buy to see if you really do like a certain bag and if it would work for you. I tried it out earlier this year (compliments of Cocoon Club) with a Bottega Cassette bag and I'm glad I did as I almost wasted my money buying when when really it didn't work for me.
