Trending: Saddle Bags





I've really been digging this Saddle bag that I picked up from Topshop recently and it's quickly taken over my old double pocked bag as my new go-to bag for autumn. The reason it caught my eye initially was because of it's nod to the  Chloe Drew, which is prtty much my dream bag if I could afford to drop that much on a handbag. Spoiler - I cant.  At a cool £ this bag doesnt break the bank, and I personally think it looks a lot more expensive than it actually was. Surprisingly it's a decent size and fits all my essentials in (including my vlogging camera!)

The saddle bag has come back into being "in" no thanks to the 70's trend, plus the classic crossbody style never really stops being on the fashion radar so it makes sense the practical shape and style would be. However thanks to Chloe and a bunch of other brands toting the crescent bag it as the shape of the season the High street has followed with their own take on it. Tassles, animal prints, mixtured textured and neutral colours seem to be the go-to design features which works well for me as Im loving a warmer more neutral based colour palette compared to my usual black and white!

This is the one that I have but in my little shoppable section (which you need to have ad block turned off for!) you can see a bunch that have caught my eye.

Like I said Saddles bags are huge for fall and winter so it's worth getting your mitts on one. Plus it's just a classic no-nonsense bag that works all year round and pretty much goes with everything. Definitely something you should keep a look out for in stores!

  2. It's definitely a pretty perfect dupe for the Chloe Drew bag which I definitely can't afford to buy either. I can see this working well with so many of my outfits too, it's gorgeous!

  3. Topshop always has very nice bags - it looks like a proper brand bag if you ask me! And it is very timeless, I like bags that can be worn in any occasion and with anything :)

  21. Best thing about saddle bags, like you said, is they are classic and won't ever go out of style. I love the hardware of that bag -- and the size. It's just perfect. Oh Topshop.... ;)

  38. I've just got a saddle bag, too! I decided to get a tasseled one from Mango, and thought that the size would be not enough for my daily needs, but it's actually fine. Maybe not for college, but for running errands it's great. But yours is fab, too! I love the chain detail.

  39. I love the tassel on your bag! I've been lugging a black leather backback around for months, could do with a smaller black bag, maybe I'll check this one out?

  40. I love this bag! I seem to have lost all my smaller bags... I feel like that's reason enough for a new one?

  44. How To Get Your Lost Husband Back

    I am from New California, i want to use this medium to testify of how i got back my ex husband after divorce, i and my husband have been married for 6years with 3 kids, we have been a happy family. Last year his behaviour towards me and the kids changed, i suspected he was meeting another woman outside out marriage, any time i confronted him, he threatened to divorce me, i did all i could to make hings right but all to no avail until i saw a post on a "love and relationship forum" about a spell caster who helps people to cast spell on marriage and relationship issues, when i contacted this spell caster via email, he helped me cast a re-union spell and my husband changed and came apologising to me and the kids. Contact this great spell caster for your relationship or marriage issues via this email okosisi.temple@gmail.com all call him +2348o71223911 Goodluck
