Michael Kors

Crafted from pebbled leather, our tri-tone Mercer tote is a thoughtful update to a timeless silhouette. Tuck important items—such as your keys, phone and wallet—in the median zippered compartment, and carry it by its elegant top handles or go hands-free with the removable shoulder strap.

I don’t blog about fashion items as much as I’d like and that’s ’cause I don’t really buy a lot of clothes or accessories… The way I see it, I’ve got clothes in my wardrobe and a washing machine so… Why buy more when I can save up for a place of my very own to put that (and more wardrobes) in? I’m doing that now though! 👊💪

Trust me, if my make-up could refill itself without me having to go out and buy some more, I probably wouldn’t buy that either… Having said that, I’m always trying new make-up so that’s not strictly true. 😆

Michael Kors is a brand that, if I’m honest, I’ve never really been on board with… I can never seem to escape people’s Christmas or Valentine’s Day gifts on my feeds – and somehow they’re mainly pictures of “bae done good” with a Michael Kors garment or product attached.

Of Kors there’s no denying that they’re good gifts, but I’ve never been one to follow the crowd. If it’s something lots of people have or are doing, I don’t want it.

Having said that, I did fall truly, madly, and deeply in love with one bag in particular… Yes, I’m talking about the ‘Large Leather Mercer Tote‘ – it’s #BagGOALS (not bagels), and I adore it.

How many times do I need to explain my love for the colour blue before it actually sinks in? Everyone who’s ever come across at least one of my posts anywhere online would know this…

I particularly love that this bag includes two shades of blue, sky and midnight. 💙

Now that we’re discussing the bag, I’ve got to state that I don’t quite understand why Michael thought to name it a ‘LARGE” Mercer Tote when I couldn’t even fit my MacBook into it… I’ve seen cakes larger than this supposedly “large” bag. What’s more, it’s not really UK weather-friendly…

If you live in England, you must be well versed in the whole: “I left my house in shorts and a vest top but came back wearing wellies, a North Face jacket and holding an umbrella”. Well, this bag doesn’t have zips so good luck keeping whatever you put inside it away from the rain! However, the leather of this bag is durable and of pretty good quality so it should be fine, externally.

PLEASE NOTE: the floral strap attached (as seen in the picture above) does not come included with the bag, it’s sold separately.
