Back to.. Bags

So it's that time of year again, when you go back to college/school/uni and you need to get the essentials. On the top of my list is always a good bag. If your bag isn't sturdy then there's no point in using it so you have to spend a little bit more on one - bags are around the only thing that I won't head straight to the sale for. Trying to find a bag big enough to fit all of your folders and coursework in is a challenge in itself.

I have compiled a collection of my favourite bags on the high street right now to make it a bit easier to choose from:

I bought a bag very similar to this one last year from H&M and I still use it most of the time and it has shown no sign of breaking. It's only £24.99 and comes in black or purple. I love bags that you can use either the carry handles or a shoulder strap. 

This is another H&M bag - it's very similar to the first one but it has a much wider range of colours (five in total) and it's only 19.99 which to me is a must have. At that rate I could buy two different colours for only £40. Perfect bargain.

Urban Outfitters isn't usually my first choice of shop but I really do like this bag. It's tall enough to fit anything A4 in and I like the colour scheme. This bag can be used for either work or a job interview aswell.  It's £48 which isn't that cheap but if it lasts then it's worth it.

I love the colour of this bag - sage - it's not dull enough to be grey but not too bright for school or college. Again, I like the handle and shoulder strap idea and it looks like there could be some compartments for phones/keys etc. It's only £36 and it's from Topshop so it should be decent enough quality. 

I think rucksacks are just really cute. They are great for days when you don't need to carry too much - this one kinda reminds me of the one Tilly had on TotsTv haha. It's only £30 from River Island and the colours are great for autumn coming in.

I hope this helps in the quest to find the perfect college/school bag and I would highly recommend River Island, H&M and New Look from personal experience.

Style Steal: Amy Macdonald

Okay so here's some things I love about Amy Macdonald: 

1. She is called Amy
2. Her music is good
3. She is Scottish
4. Her style is pretty awesome

Amy Macdonald's style is kinda like 'Scottish rock chic'. She mixes Tartan dresses and skirts with leather and does it really well. So here is how to get one of her excellent styles for a very good price...
I think the jacket is probably my favourite out of this outfit. It's only £29.99 from H&M. The shoes are from New Look and are £24.99 - I also thinks shoe boots or heels with studs would spice the outfit up a little bit. The dress is an absolute bargain at only £10 from Desire Clothing. Which you can buy here.

I hope you enjoyed this style steal and I would love some suggestions for the next one.
