SheIn Sleeveless Trench + Jennifer Hamley Model KT bag

SheIn sleeveless trench Jennifer Hamley Model KT bag

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend with minimal Christmas shopping stress. I’ve got three new things to share with you today. A sleeveless trench has been on my list of things to buy for months. I’d seen lots of my favourite bloggers wearing them over Spring/Summer and made a mental note-to-self to buy one, but somehow just didn’t get around to it until a few weeks ago. When I saw this one on the SheIn website I thought it would work well with a lot of my work outfits.

A sleeveless coat that isn’t too thick is ideal for layering all year round – it’s an alternative to wearing a jacket for the office, and you can still comfortably fit a slouchy coat over it.

A sleeveless coat that isn’t too thick is ideal for layering all year round – it’s an alternative to wearing a jacket for the office, and you can still comfortably fit a slouchy coat over it. Oh, and they make very good bum coverers (so no worrying about that VPL). To keep the colour palette simple without straying into boring territory I wore my new leopard print blouse under it. I spotted the blouse at TK Maxx when I went in to return something. It immediately caught my eye so I just bought it without trying it on. At only £12.99 it was worth a gamble, and although the sleeves are a bit tight for my meaty arms it’s not uncomfortable. I love leopard print so it’s a keeper.

Jennifer designed the double award winning Model KT work bag to improve the lives of busy women. Not only is it a very stylish laptop bag, but it has multiple compartments for all your essentials too.

Of course, I had to add a pop of colour and what better way than with this gorgeous Jennifer Hamley Model KT bag? Back in May when I went to the 3040 Blogger Meet in London I had the pleasure of meeting bag designer Jennifer Hamley. Jennifer designed the double award winning Model KT work bag to improve the lives of busy women. Not only is it a very stylish laptop bag, but it has multiple compartments for all your essentials too. The bag has a sunglasses pocket, business card holders, hands-free travel card slot, interior zip pockets, a pouch for chargers, a key clip, an adjustable shoulder strap…and there’s even a shopping bag inside one of the compartments! My favourite feature has to be the zip-off tablet pouch which doubles as a sleek clutch. I just love how easy it is to unzip it for a quick day-to-night transition.

I don’t covet wildly expensive designer bags, but when I find something that’s incredibly useful and beautiful I’m sold.

Now I have to confess that I’ve bought, ahem, more than one Model KT. I don’t covet wildly expensive designer bags, but when I find something that’s incredibly useful and beautiful I’m sold. After I bought this one in teal I was lucky enough to snap up a couple of slight factory seconds (although you’d never know because they are still outstanding quality) so I have a little Model KT family now 🙂 No doubt they’ll be popping up on the blog very soon. I’m told if I’m a very good girl (which probably means not spending too much on handbags and shoes) Santa might just bring me a new laptop. To be honest, now I’m the proud owner of not one, but three Model KTs, I don’t really want or need another work bag. You never know, it might even make me more organised 😉

What are your work bag essentials? Mine are definitely phone, laptop, purse and makeup. Let me know what yours are in the comments!

    Love the colour pop! I’ve been looking into the mini version of this bag. If I’m out and about it would be great for my tablet. I have looked at the Shein site too. Some fab bargains there.
    As for Christmas shopping, I’m only just starting! My mother was in hospital and time stood still. So much to do! Have a great week Emma x
