TAKING MY NEW ASPINAL OF LONDON LANSDOWNE BAG OUT FOR A SPIN ON THE STREETS OF NOTTING HILL
I’ve been lusting over this Lion Lansdowne bag by Aspinal of London ever since I saw it on Fashion Mumblr Instagram (@josieldn). So by the time I got it I had already thought of so many different ways of styling it. One of the easiest ways is obviously a more casual, laid back style. It’s definitely more appropriate for rushing around London and to be honest, probably more true to my (relatable) everyday style.
On my Instagram you’ll have also seen me style it with a gorgeous blush pink dress and teddy coat too. It’s great for a late Summer evenings or picnics in the park. The bag is structured so the shape will keep. It’s big enough for all of our daily essentials and will even fit my Olympus PEN.
The Editor jeans at Topshop are so flattering but I do think it’s good to go up a size. I stuck to my normal 12 and found them a little on the tight side particularly if you have some hips on you!
A button down cami creates a vertical line giving you a more leaner looking shape which can be useful if you’re hiding a curvier figure with an oversized shacket like me.
