Hello guys and happy Monday! This post is coming from a plane journey between London and Istanbul. I am very lucky to be able to travel with my job and visit places I would never normally go. This week is mainly a factory trip, to see how our development samples are made and sourcing new fabrics for my department. I know I have briefly talked about my job before, but if you guys would love more information about what I do let me know. I could possibly give advice for anyone going into the fashion industry as a designer.

Travelling is a massive perk to my job and one I jump at the chance to do when it's offered as you don't know when you might be asked to go again. Even though I'm so busy with work, getting out of the office into a new environment makes me so happy and knowing it's Turkey makes me even more excited as I love visiting Istanbul, mainly for the food and the people. It has such a vibrant feel to the city. I think this time round we will be so busy working but hopefully, next time I come I can write a review of the various places to visit.

As Mondays go it's a good start to the week and a good start to a month of exciting adventures and projects ahead. The first of many projects is talking about this outfit here, well it's talking about this perforated white bag from Paul's Boutique.  This brand has been around for quite a while and it's one that takes me back to my first year of university, when the new Topshop opened in the Arndale and they sold Paul's Boutique there. I remember how popular these bags were with all the girls at uni. With their over the top design and so many key rings hanging off each bag. At the time they were an affordable IT bag for so many girls then all of sudden they slowly disappeared. Well they went away and have come back with a totally new style of bags and had a complete rebrand of Paul's Boutique.

Even though the designs have changed, the quality from this brand is still to a very high standard. As the sun was out yesterday I decided to wear this jazzy Hawaiian style shirt and my raw edge Topshop jeans. The white bag stands out against the bright colours and print, bringing this whole look together. Please let me know what you think of this look and about this Paul's Boutique bag.
