The Bag From Heaven


At first glance, it may look like today's outfit is all about the skirt. The pattern, the style, the texture...Everything about this Topshop skirt drags you in and it's with good reason. The skirt is absolutely beautiful and I'm honestly in love with it and although it is without a doubt a statement piece, today it's all about the accessories. Be prepared to see some of the most beautiful but reasonably priced jewellery that you've ever seen from lolaandgrace and if you're a phone addict like me then be prepared to be blown away by the H Butler bag from House of Fraser that charges your phone.

Yep, say hello to the best bag you will ever own. This H Butler cross body bag not only looks super chic but is also essential for any social media addict who runs their battery down immediately. It. Charges. Your. Phone. Inside, it has a little built in power bar that can be connected to your phone, whether it's an iPhone or Samsung or something else, and I don't know about anyone else but for me this is a lifesaver. We all know the pain of smartphone battery life. You might think you have enough battery to last you the day but after you've uploaded that Instagram pic and had a little nosey through Facebook, you've got 15% battery life left before you know it. I've had power bars before and I've lost every single one so this bag is perfect for us bloggers; when your phone runs down after snapping all of those pics of your food, just plug it into the bag and carry on as normal. If you can't already tell I am amazed by this piece of technology.

And that leads me onto to my next point. Usually, when you come across a cool little gadget like this, they're decidedly lacking in the fashion factor. You know what I mean, right? That's not the case for the H Butler bags and as you can see, this cross-body bag is nothing but chic. House of Fraser stock a whole range of H Butler bags and purses that have built in chargers, from purse wristlests to envelope clutches to cross body bags like this meaning there is one for every occasion. I know I'm going to be taking mine travelling with me - there's nothing like your phone dying to ruin a long journey but I don't need to worry about that anymore!

I promised you beautiful, affordable jewellery and here it is. lolaandgrace has long been a jewellery favourite of mine since before I even started blogging and last year Karl even got my ring he got me for Valentine's Day from the brand. Almost three years after I started my blog, nothing has changed and lolaandgrace remains one of my go-to jewellery brands for beautiful, classic pieces that I just know I'm going to love. The jewellery here is no exception. Like all of lolaandgrace's pieces, the earrings and the ring are crafted with Swarovski crystals, in this instance in a breath-taking rose pink. Despite the intricate detailing in the pieces and the sheer beauty of them, the ring comes in at just under £30 and the earrings at just under £25 and I don't know about you but I'd be willing to pay a lot more than that for jewellery as beautiful and as timeless as these. I'm not sure if you can see on the photo, but the ring also has crystals set into the band along with the large pink one, creating a shimmering, eye-catching piece that is perfect for wearing alone as I have done here, or stacking with other rings from lolaandgrace's stack ring collection

Hope you enjoyed this outfit and are enjoying the marginally more spring-like weather!
