Whilst at other times of the year I'm all about the big 'yep, I've got the kitchen sink in here too' handbag that ensures your preparedness for any situation you may happen upon, in the colder months I opt for a smaller, niftier version of my usual Zara City - and you know what? I think I might've found the most perfect autumn/winter bag that's roomy enough to fit all of your essentials but also feels neat when you're wearing nine layers (with a hefty coat on top for good measure, of course).
It comes in the form of the Frances Lock Croc Bag by Kurt Geiger and it's the most beautiful deep wine, I'm completely in love with the colour and I'm yet to find an outfit in my AW wardrobe that it doesn't compliment. Thanks to its structured shape and sturdy handles it's both sophisticated and practical, and I can confirm that its two compartments hold a lot of items so we can stay organised without the bulk, hooray! I haven't used another bag since I nabbed it in the sale (£39, say what?!) and think it's such a gorgeous, well-made piece that I'm sure will be a trusty friend to me for years.
If you'd like to see everything I lug around in this baby, I recently uploaded my first What's In My Bag video here - just call me Meggy Poppins!
