A Ray of Sunshine with Radley
Whilst I love a bright dress in the summer, if we're not in a heatwave, my day to day outfits are fairly neutral and without colour. So when I had the opportunity to style a Radley bag (gifted), I decided to venture a little bit out of my comfort zone and go for a pop of colour and as soon as I saw this 'Hello Sunshine' yellow and white striped bag, I was drawn to it, like a moth to a flame...
Because it's such a vibrant bag, I really wanted to keep my outfit fairly neutral and really bring the focus to the bag (but I also think it would look incredible with a clashing print). And coincidentally (and ironically), the day I took these photos, it was absolutely tipping it down so I couldn't have gotten away with anything less than jeans, even if I wanted to...
The bag is a bucket bag and is a bit of a Mary Poppins bag and can honestly fit everything that I need it to - and a bit of room for more! It also has an internal pocket which is great for anything that you may want to tuck away. I've wanted a bucket bag for quite a while and am so in love with this one! I think it works really well with the combination of a grey blazer and jeans, and of course my new leopard slides which are my new favourite shoe. I love the fact that the bag says 'Hello Sunshine' and think it really makes it even more fun and feels slightly personalised - making it the perfect bag for a heatwave!
I also think this bag would look incredible with a black slip dress or anything that didn't have too much going on, so the bag is ultimately the highlight of the outfit because who wouldn't this to be the focus?
I styled it with a casual blazer, a white blouse and my all time favourite ripped jeans which really makes the outfit slightly even more casual than a usual blazer combo. How would you style this bag?
What do you think of this bag? Is this something you'd love to style or a bit too far out of your comfort zone?
