Style: River Island Accessories

If you ask my partner he will tell you I have an EXTENSIVE shoe and bag collection and I definitely do not need any more, but let's face it; what the hell does he know? So when River Island got in touch and asked me to choose some bits from their bag and Wide fit shoe selection, I of course said yes!



I was really excited to try some items from River Island, I've obviously never had clothes from them until last year, I have bought a couple of piece from the plus range, but I've never had accessories from them either. 

In hindsight I'm cursing myself for going with such 'safe' options, because River Island are known for their really vivid bag and shoe designs, but in my head I wanted to go for something classic, which, to be fair, I have and I love. But maybe I should have been a more bold? 


I do, however, adore the items I went for. I have not had the bag off my shoulder to be honest. It's compact, but has three compartments and is roomy AF to fit all my daily crap in! FYI mums out there, you can fit baby wipes, purse, phone, keys and even a drink in this baby without feeling mumsy or carry something really boring and practical looking. 

I love the tan contrast on the strap and tassels too, which gives it a bit more versatility to wear with neutral tone outfits as well as monochrome. 


I continued that colour pallet into my choice of boots. I went for a pair from the wide fit collection as I was interested to see how wide fit they actually were. Foot wise they are a great fit, nice and roomy, but what I will say is the ankle is snug, and for a fat chick, I have a relatively slim ankle, so just be aware, if you do have a larger ankle, these might not be the style for you. 

The heel is a great height though, it's comfortable and not too 'teetery', I love the soft square toe style too, as someone who always goes for a point it made a lovely change!
