First, I just want to congratulate myself unashamedly on this photograph - taken by me with my iPhone, a good Instragram filter and white background.

I've always been a big fan of All Saints and the style and image they project. Their brand is very much about classic, minimalistic pieces in a limited range of colours - black, white, grey and slashes of red if you're really lucky. However they are super expensive and it is normally very unrealistic for me to ever buy anything from there. The All Saints sale cropped up a few weeks ago and I snapped up these bad boys as well as a couple of smaller staple pieces too. These boots are timeless with so much attitude. If there is a sexier pair of ankle boots out there I'd love to see them! As well as being completely gorgeous, these babies were reduced from £298 to £89 and so honestly what choice did I have??

It feels a bit mad to be talking about new season pieces in July especially as it is unusually hot in the UK at the moment. However, in the fashion world the new season is almost upon us, and slowly but surely A/W products are coming online and into stores. While hopefully we won't have to be saying goodbye to Summer for a little while longer, I always think it's be a good idea to snap up new pieces early. These handbags from the new collection at Zara are at the top of my wish list right now. They are not strictly speaking reserved for the colder months but I think they are just better suited. That's just me personally of course!

When I first laid eyes on the gorgeous mock croc bucket bag I fell for it's expensive and 1940's, old-school image. It also really reminded me of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and their amazing boho, vintage style. I also adore the classic minimalism of the mini shopper. The size is perfect for everyday and the deep red hue screams of a classic A/W palette. Last but by no means least, I love the little leather backpack. I feel like it would actually be great for all year round. I've wanted a small leather backpack for a little while because I love the practically aspect. This one for me is perfect because it is really simplistic and more grown-up and feminine than most styles I've seen. I also love the little Chanel-esque chain detail.

Collectively I think these bags are all really timeless and would make essential additions to my new season wardrobe.
