Todays OOTD is an actual outfit of TO-day.. a rarity for me as I don’t often write and publish on the same day… scheduling is king here on my blog so it’s a bit of a novelty to be publishing this as I’m still in the very same clothes. Everything but the bag is from H&M so I wont bore you with a repetitive *What I’m Wearing* blurb this time.. I find it so tough to shop in store but online H&M always has something I want.. in fact I just placed an order this week. Those of you who shop with them in the same way will know the pain of waiting for that delivery but usually if you order by Saturday you should get everything within the next week.. though it could be a full 7 days.. really irritating given that they charge £3.50 for the service but hey.. I still love them. Clothing wise everything is old and no longer available (sorry) but the bag is very new.. and absolutely gorgeous. It was sent to me by the lovely Melissa at thelittleblackbookofstyle.com which those of you who have followed me for a while will definitely have heard me talk about before. She sells Rebecca Minkoff bags at very reasonable prices and ships from the UK so no unexpected customs fees.. the only seller I would recommend. I have purchased from her several times and been very happy with the service.. as have many of my readers so if you’re looking for a cute new bag I’d highly suggest taking a look at her selection.
This particular one is a new style both to the line and the site, I have it in the colour Blackcherry which is just not picking up at all in these photos, early morning Winter light is just PANTS.. expect a follow up with a better idea of colour soon. It’s a very deep plum colour that can read black/brown in certain lights and will hopefully go with just about everything. The other mini macs that I have from RM are bright purple and rose gold and much as I love them they’re not super versatile.. this one will be. I only with they offered it in silver hardware.. I like to have a nice mix and most of the smaller bags I have are gold but it seems to be the trend right now. The style is more formal but the size is identical to the mini macs, there are more pockets and the layout inside is a little more user friendly but it’s very, very similar. Melissa has this colour, a bright red (beautiful) and a taupe which like this is very Autumn but also quite neutral so you can get use from it year round. I can hold the majority of my day to day bits in these small bags, phone, full size wallet, vlogging camera, makeup etc but it’s definitely more condensed than my every day stuff.. PS.. I had no idea how see through my top was.. eek! I have been out all day.. might be time to start wearing a cami under this, it’s clearly been washed too many times 😉
