Accessories: It's all in the details-From Machu Picchu to Me

Hi everyone! As the weather has been pretty awful lately, I've been focusing on how the little details such as accessories and colours can make a difference to an outfit.

Last month I found an awesome tote bag at the boot sale, all the way from Peru- Macchu Picchu to be precise. I do love authentically made pieces from South America and what drew me to this particular bag was the colours- fuchsia pink and orange, perfect for Spring and Summer:


I just love the style too- a tote is the perfect bag for this season and it's barely been used- it would have been rude not to have bought it for a bargainous £2, no?



I paired it with my current favourite scarf of the moment, a Primark buy a couple of months ago which is a watercolour floral style which I'm really loving for now- it's quietly vibrant and understated in a mix of colours and it seems to go with practically all of my outfits- I've worn it here with my thrifted black leather biker jacket by Primark too:


What are your favourite bags and accessories of the moment- are you all about colours, or are you sticking to neutrals?

Great find, Sharon! I use whatever bag I have in my closet as always but I would love a white bag for this season. Enjoy your cute bag!

Yup ... perfect summer bag that will take you through to fall. And around the world in your admiration of its origins! That's what makes it wonderful, isn't it?
Have a great week!

What a find, an authentic Peruvian bag and a such low price!
Of course the way that you put it together with the scarf and the biker jacket is quite cool.

Love that bag too, £2 is a steal. I'm using a purple bag right now but in the market for some new loves...lots of mine are ready for the great bag maker in the sky sadly.

I think pink and orange is such a good color combo especially for summer. It's very cheerful!
