When it comes to handbags, I prefer classic styles that go with everything – Furla, Bally or Versace are my favourite boutiques at Wertheim Village and Ingolstadt Village. To me, the most important thing is to feel comfortable when carrying my bag. It needs to be practical, comfortable and have enough room for all my essentials! I travel all the time so I carry my Avène Aqua Spray, a moisturising lotion and lip balm in my handbag to keep my skin refreshed and hydrated. Even in the evenings, you’ll find me carrying the biggest tote. My girlfriends shake their heads, but I love them! My top tip would be to keep your handbag in a cotton sack when not in use to protect it from dust and scratches.

My personal style is quite feminine – I like spicing up classic looks with seasonal pieces but I don’t chase after trends constantly. For me the most important thing is to find a balance between being stylish and comfortable. My go-to day bag is a classic black Furla piece – its simple finish and practical pockets make it perfect for work. Then, for the weekend, I’ll mix it up with a small, cross-body shoulder bag, like the Tory Burch Robinson. I’ve also been favouring metallic clutches recently, they’re perfect teamed with statement earnings and bracelets for an evening out. My go-to brands when looking for handbags at Bicester Village would have to be Saint Laurent Paris and Salvatore Ferragamo!

I'm a girl who’s constantly on the go, so my favourite has to be the bucket bag. I currently am using a blush-coloured leather bucket bag that goes surprisingly goes with everything. I also love leather handbags for their durability and longevity. I'm a massive fan of Longchamp bags as they allow me to carry a lot. Kildare Village is a must-visit for handbag lovers as it caters for all. From the likes of Furla and Mulberry to the more affordable ranges of Cath Kidston and Ted Baker. One brand that I'm obsessing over at the moment is kate spade new york – her bags are so durable and match my aesthetic perfectly. I consider my bag an extension of my apartment as I carry a lot in it, from my Filofax to an umbrella! Needless to say I've been called Mary Poppins on a few occasions.
