The Minimal City Bag

My style has always been quite casual and laid back.. sneakers and jeans are usually the base of any outfit I wear. However, these last few months I've been making a conscious effort to explore the more feminine and put-together side of my style. This little transition was the reason I was so excited when I found the Zara minimal city bag, a structured nude satchel that is very reminiscent of the Celine belt bag.  

I've loved the belt bag ever since I saw it, it's a little more mature looking than a shapeless cross-body bag but still easy to style for everyday outfits. Unfortunately, a Celine bag isn't easy to get my hands on, which made this Zara alternative a huge releif! I'd definitely recommend it. It's really soft and looks a lot more expensive than it actually is! Another plus is that it holds my 13" Macbook, a feature that I can't attribute to most of my other bags.

For my first outfit with the city bag, I opted for a silk button down camisole from Boohoo, chunky heels from Public Desire, a white duster coat from Forever 21, and some vintage Levi's. In order to keep this outfit true to my style I decided to wear the most worn-in pair of jeans I have, I think the mix of heels and jeans always ends up looking really cool.
