Classic with a pop of color

Pin It
I am definitely a classic type of girl when it comes to fashion. Even though I love incorporating bold colors to my outfits lately, I still feel comfortable wearing my neutrals. For me, adding bold accessories is the best way to dress up my plain outfits. With that in mind, I picked out this Patty Shoulder Bag when Aftershock London reached out for a mention.

Cross-body satchels are everywhere this Fall and I can totally see why. It is very practical and also trendy/chic at the same time. I know I can’t afford a Hermes Berkin so this one will do for now. If wool pants, button-down shirt and black pumps does not scream classic, I don’t know what does? A pop of blue (or periwinkle?) will certainly spice up a plain outfit.

What I am wearing:
Trousers: LOFT from last year - size 00P (buy similar here - available in 00P) | Shirt: Ann Taylor - 0P (buy here - available in 00P and 40% off) | Shoes: Ann Taylor perfect leather pump (buy here - 40% off) | Satchel: c/o Aftershock London (buy here) | Belt: Banana Republic exotic leather belt (buy similar here)

I always find it fascinating how foreign companies want to partner up with you! I just checked out their site and it is a British company? Swwwon! I love British clothing and designers, and recently purchased the Pippa bag from Modalu. I'll look at the site more tonight, and I've included my email address because I am excited to get their newsletter!


what a beautiful bag and i love the color! just entered. :)


I agree that classic is always best and I love your pieces. The satchel is gorgeous. Do you know if it's leather and what the interior is made of?


sydney-- i totally know what you mean by going with neutrals. i feel comfortable in it and its much easier to wear without having to think about it. you look great in this outfit.

btw i bought a wireless remote, but i don't think its compatible with my camera. sucks!!! :\

I completely agree that bld accessories are the best (easiest) way to kick an outfit up a notch! Sometimes when I am running late, it's the most I can do to grab a fun scarf as I head out the door (kinda tricks people into thinking I was feeling somewhat creative that morning:-) )

Love your style girl!
