Lately I’m busy for apartment hunting and moving because my landlord is selling my current place. I finally found a new apartment nearby and new roommates and will be moving to there soon. While packing, I’m thinking about the importance of wardrobe essentials. I mentioned my shopping philosophy before and how I’m conscious of what I choose to add to my wardrobe. I try to avoid choosing a style that will be old news by next season. So I’m stick to classic fashion pieces like white shirts and jeans. Bags should be timeless, too, especially the clean and structured bags have a serious timeless appeal. With a bag like this, I can pair with my everyday wardrobe and I’ll have no problem carrying on repeat.
I recently had the opportunity to work with Belcori, and immediately knew that it would be a brand I’d love to work on. Based in the Netherlands, Belcori is an emerging independent bag and accessories label that produces leather goods ethically and sustainably. They design eco-conscious luxury leather goods and handmade in Spain. With a focus on minimal aesthetics, Belcori bags are made to integrate into any lifestyle. I especially love the timeless and simple silhouette of my Elena crossbody. Because the clean silhouette will never go out of style. Additionally, the hidden compartments offer optimal functionality. There’re two extra layers of compartments for fragile items and can fit my 10″ iPad, keys, phones and lipstick.
I thought I’d style a spring look based around what I wear to work lately. Inspired by spring’s unpredictable weather we have been having recently – around 10 degree in the morning and 25 degree in the afternoon calls for a cardigan. The cardigan is oversized and so comfy. We’re experiencing the awkward in between weather here in Boston so I still need some sort of cover up. The white shirt I wore is collarless and it’s great for both work or going out. I kept the outfit simple with a pair of girlfriend jeans. The oversized nature of the cut works great for a relaxed chic look, which strikes a nice balance between the casualness and structured bag. I complete my outfit with a pair of black loafers. I’ve found myself reaching for these loafers over and over. They are comfortable and are versatile enough to pair with almost everything in my wardrobe.
I know I’ll be getting so much wear out of this Belcori bag because its minimal style and quality leather can elevate any simple outfit.
