Saddle up!Saturday, September 19, 2015
I wonder how many articles and posts about the current saddle bag trend will have the exact same title? I apologise for the obviousness of it but sometimes, you just gotta.
I'm not normally a handbag lover - I like a good tote bag or a teeny tiny clutch (I'm a person of extremes) and I've generally seen handbags as a bit 'middle ground', and just a bit 'meh'.
But I'm liking the saddle bag, and am thinking that I might pop on on my Christmas wishlist (don't shout at me for mentioning the c-word, it's only 97 days away).
I think I can put my finger on the moment these bags piqued my interest, back in June I was reading Wearing It Today - a post about another current obsession, white dresses - and I spied a beautiful Chloe saddle bag. This is now, and forever will be, way beyond my budget but with so many lovely high street alternatives I can easily find something I like at a sensible price.
My favourite? The very first one from Next, or the very last from ASOS. What's yours?

Did you see my summertime photography scavenger hunt yesterday? And perhaps you can help me decide what colour to paint my bedroom in last Saturday's post?
