*New bag alert*

Cashmere jumper: Cos. Jeans: Topshop. Trainers: Nike Vortex (buy similar here). Bag: Marks + Spencer. Suitcase: Tripp at Debenhams.

Last weekend, I was in Paris for a shoot with Red Magazine. I love the Eurostar, such an easy way to travel straight to the centre of Paris. It was only for one night so I kept packing simple and stuck with the basics, when travelling my outfits are very paired back and simple - usually navy blue and a statement bag. I generally always wear cashmere for travelling (and by that I mean the same cashmere jumper from Cos which still looks amazing with no bobbles 3 years on - a great £75 investment), and a cross-body bag is essential for me to keep my hands free to deal with our work luggage/tickets etc.

This bag from Marks and Spencer has plenty of useful pockets, a good quality zip (which I think is essential), adjustable strap and the ponyskin leopard print looks very chic.

Look no further for good quality cashmere, too - 100% cashmere for £65. I wear mine around the house at the moment, still reluctant to turn the heating on! They come in an array of colours (including my favourite: navy):

  2. I love this outfit! Perfect for travelling. I'd love to find some some good grey and navy crew neck cashmere jumpers. Uniqlo, M&S and Tesco seem to be fine for v-necks, but round necks are trickier. I'm not a fan of the slight scoop of the M&S and Uniqlo ones. So far Boden looks to be a front runner for navy and Gap for grey. Would be so great if you had any other recommendations! Olivia X

  3. I LOVE M&S bags, i was on the look out for a new winter bag a couple of years ago and had never even thought of there, now i am hooked. Their bags really last two, not too fashion-y. Also love their cashmere…especially the mens cashmere. I have the softest mens cashmere tartan scarf from there from last year…looking forward to getting it out soon! xxxx

  4. A good cashmere jumper is always a great investment, which usually lasts for years! Love the bag too!
