I’ve recently been enjoying a very different way of dressing. Maybe due to this great British heatwave which certainly allows for a more carefree attitude (aka whatever keeps me cool), or maybe I’ve just realised that a pretty floaty dress can work for me after all. However, no matter how much joy a summer frock brings, it’s no match for the timeless classics. I never tire of a crisp white shirt and jeans combo. Marks & Spencer always deliver versions of these updated classics and this season is no exception. When shopping at M&S I always make a beeline for Autograph. The quality of the pieces and minimal design are attributes that suit my style and I’ll always find something that catches my eye. This bag for instance is totally up my street! Made from the most beautiful leather and in a style and size that work perfectly with just about any outfit. And I’m pretty sure it will serve me through autumn and winter too.
