One of my first articles on here was about accessories. I felt it needed a follow up because the new shoes and bags have not stopped coming in since then. Here are some of my favourites for work, going out and everything in between.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to bring half of my possessions to work, you know, just in case you need a brush/needle and thread/full makeup/banana/four different notebooks/receipts from the past five years….. A girl can never be too prepared!
A bag that was recently gifted to me is this beautiful pink and black bag made from the softest leather. It can hold all my treasures and comes with a belt (which I hardly ever use, I like to hold my bags).
The designer is Maria Cardelli (please visit her website: mariacardelli.com)
This next bag from Shoebakery is a sweet dream come true! It doubles as a work- and funbag.
This bag is sold out but is still available in different colours (here). The shoes are simple pumps which I embellished with pompom shoeclips.
I have a gigantic collection of wicker/straw bags and baskets but this one had to be mine. I ditched the scarf that came with it to add my own scarves, depending on what I’m wearing.
I bought this one at Zara and it sold out since then, but you can buy the same one at Amazon (here)
A couple of days after the above featured basket arrived, I saw this round basket on Asos. I thought is was such a fun little basket and ordered it. It came with a tassel attached, which I cut off.
The basket sold out really fast, but here and here are some alternatives.
Bags for fun
My latest addition! Although this bag can be used for work (it’s big enough), I also use it for going out to dinner. I am so in love with the colours!
This bag is part of the 10-year anniversary collection of Topvintage.nl (here).
Furla is a favourite brand of mine. Their bags are not too pricey but the quality is excellent and their designs are fun and flirty.
This print is so beautiful! Shop this bag here or here.
The shoes in the picture above are from Aldo (shop here). They come in different colours but this orange/red was my favourite.
Rainbow shoes! What more can I say….. (shop here). The bag is from Furla (similar here).
Have a wonderful new week!

Hi Carin I didn’t realise that you also had a website so this is my first visit. Your collection of bags and shoes nust be vast and how on earth do you house your ever expanding clothes haul? That aside I have to say what a joy it is seeing your instagram feed and the happiness you give and share is wonderful! xxx
Hello Anna! Thank you for visiting.
I have to admit, my clothes collection is getting out of hand. Recently, I have started to give away a lot of clothes (my friends are very happy with me ;-)) but still it’s impossible to store everything neatly, so my closets are a mess! I’m dreaming of a big walk-in closet 🙂
Thank you for your sweet comment!
Wow! I didn t know either that you had a blog! Your style is exiting, fun, elegant! A bit B`52 s! Love it!
