I have teamed up with Paul's Boutique to show you guys my favourite pick from their newly launched A/W16 collection, and the bag I received is the Bethany Handheld style in Navy Snake Print with a white side border.
I went for navy as it's great to stray away and be a little different from the classic and neutral colours I usually choose for my handbags. I am styling it here with a simple grey midi dress.
The Bethany bag is the perfect choice for those of us who sometimes need to use a medium sized bag (especially when your boyfriend decides to dump all his stuff in your bag for you to carry - (girls, I think we can all relate!). This bag is a great size because although its more of a medium sized bag than a small bag, its not huge, so you don't feel like you're lugging around a massive bag, you have just enough space for all the bits you need and it doesn't really get heavy either. It's also ideal for a carry on bag on planes!
You can also change the sides on this bag to suit you, by either having the sides tucked in or out. If you tuck the sides in (like I have for most of these photos) then it makes the bag more of a square shape and that little bit smaller. But, if you're wanting that little bit more space or you prefer the infamous Céline shape style of bags, then you can untuck the sides like a couple of the pictures below.
It also comes with a longer, adjustable strap which you can attach to the bag to so you can wear it over the shoulder if you want to. As well as this, it also has a zipped compartment and a couple of pockets to store your tech and any valuables.
