My Ultimate Autumn Bag

Each year I like to invest in one nice coat, one nice pair of boots and a nice bag for the Autumn and Winter season. This year I’ve gone for a lovely blazer style coat from New Look, some amazing black leather chelsea boots from Debenhams and I was lucky enough to be sent MY DREAM BAG from vintage leather bag company Scaramanga.

Bags suddenly become really important when you have a baby. Too big? And they make the buggy fall over (and yes I know we aren’t supposed to put bags on buggies and OK so I still do). Too small? And you can’t shove all the necessary crap in that a ‘Mum Bag’ requires. So the Classic London Tan Leather Satchel 15 inch with handle is ideal. Not only is there a strap that can go across the body but also a handle for those times when you need to pick it up and run after a child quickly (more often than not screaming across a park).




Whilst there are a range of colours on offer I chose tan as it is my all time favourite Autumnal colour. It goes amazing with big chunky burgundy wooly scarves or thick grey tights. And gives a pop of colour on a grey, cold October day. Arriving in a lovely decorative dust cover, I know that this is the kind bag will grow better with age. I can’t wait till it looks all bashed and the leather loses a bit of the newness it has now.

The photos from this post are from a day mooching around Kensington with the other half. And yes I looked weird taking photos of a bag alone. But you know what? I didn’t ruddy care. If you would like to take a look at the range of leather bags on offer at Scaramanga visit their website here. And maybe subtly send a link to your other half for your Christmas list.

  3. That is a lovely bag! I'm very impressed that you are stylish and organised enough to get a new coat, bag and boots every autumn. I'm such a scruff that I get a new coat every 4 or 5 years, new boots every 2 or 3 (when they've got holes in them) and a new bag after about 18 months ie when the old one has fallen apart!
