The Only Three Handbags You'll Ever Need

It will come as no surprise that I'm a huge handbag lover, over the last couple of years I've collected some amazingly classic, keep-them-forever type pieces and I just had to share because I know that for me right now as I'm looking to invest in things that are going to last. I know that with graduation being about 3/4 months ago a lot of you will be enjoying those graduate pay slips and looking to treat yourself to some wardrobe staples.

The bag for everything - Longchamp Le Pliage Tote 

A post shared by Lorna R. (@theinterndiariesxo) on
My Longchamp is so well loved, since getting it about 2 years ago I've used it every day. This is a tardis/Mary Poppins bag, anything and everything I need for whatever kind of day I'm having I guarantee you it'll fit in here. Smart enough to be the perfect work bag, big enough to be the perfect hand luggage, it also folds up to the size of a small wallet so even when I'm carrying another bag, which isn't often, I can always have it folded up ready. The leather straps are so comfy on my shoulders I just know that'll keep using this bag for years to come. Yes, they are more expensive than a regular tote but they're incredibly well made and so adaptable for so many occasions and uses. Longchamp Le Pliage also comes in a range of sizes and colors as well as coming in a leather version as opposed to the usual canvas. This would make the perfect gift or "to me, love me" gift for any busy person who's constantly on the go.
The bag for the weekend - MAHI Leather Columbus Weekender*

This leather weekender is a more recent addition to my bag collection but I seriously wish I'd invested in something like this so much sooner. It's so universal and strong that I know anything I throw in here will arrive in one piece and unscratched. MAHI leather is made here in the UK and the craftsmanship is impeccable, made from the finest quality leather and hand-finished you can really tell the amount of craftmanship goes into these bags. I also love the option to personalize it, I had my initials put on here as a more subtle way of personalizing it but I just know this will be a bag I'll have for years and it will only get better with age. Personally I chose the Columbus style because it had a comfy shoulder strap and plenty of exterior pockets for having things ready to hand.

The Fancy One for everything else - Mulberry Clifton

So this very special bag was a graduation present from my parents and way beyond anything I could have dreamed of buying for myself. The clever style of the bag means the chain can be removed, to wear as a clutch, shortened to wear as a shoulder bag, or left long to wear as a cross body. Such a versatile bag means it's perfect for any occasion. I love that it has three separate pockets, I think it definitely helps to keep the shape of the bag and avoids overstuffing it. Having a little something extra fancy like this in my wardrobe has made normal outfits feel so much more put together, I've really loved wearing it and again it's another staple piece that I know I'll continue to wear for years to come.
