Mum called me from London in the middle of the night at the shop itself.
"You can't get orange, it's far too bright and glaring!" Since it was past midnight, I groggily agreed to light turquoise even though I'd no idea what colour it was.
I was a little afraid, to be honest, and was thinking of Mardi Gras shades.
The buckles are fiddly and Hubs always laughs to see me scramble for them each time my mobile rings. Hmmph.
I love how structured it is and adds a schoolkid vibe (yes, I know it sounds deluded given that it's been decades since I last stepped into a school). The leather is stiff but I've heard reviews that it should soften down after a few wears.
It's been very versatile for me from pairing it with a girly, floral print dress.
To a tee and jeans - who'd have ever thought that baby blue and pale pink would go so happily together?
