Snake Satchel

I have never ever carried a satchel… until today. When I was in school, everyone had one and they were such a huge trend it actually put me off them. I saw so many people with them in so many different colours and prints I just never desired one. But this was during my ‘going against the status quo’ phase so anything anyone else had, I wanted the opposite. Recently which shopping in the handbag gold mine that is TK Maxx, I found this faux snakeskin satchel for only £15.00 and just had to buy one. My opinion on these bags has totally changed and I see what the ‘hype’ was about. Firstly, I love the structure of the bags and that they’re really well structured. Often with drawstring or hobo bags, there isn’t much structure and I always end up losing something somehow. I really like to be organised, and everything to be in the correct place so I adore this bag for it’s thick and sturdy structure to stop me losing all my essentials. The bag has a little window for a name tag which I thought was really cool, but I’ve also found that the dark colour is really easy to pair with many different outfits despite the pattern. Because the bag is black, the snakeskin pattern appears quite subtly and even shimmers in natural lighting. I wore this bag with a favourite new skirt of mine which follows a flare style and I think it’s perfect for autumn. It’s quite similar to the skirt I wore on Monday which I also paired with boots. My jacket is a new autumn favourite of mine because it’s so warm and cosy; plus, it’s a lighter grey so it easily matches a lot of items in my wardrobe.
