Weekend #OOTD With Timberland!

Saturday 13 December 2014

When I think of Timberland I used to imagine the iconic nubuck boots my man has, J-Lo in her heeled Timb style Manolo's and checked shirts and waterproofs, certainly not beautiful leather accessories like this beaut Timberland Parkside Tote Bag! When Timberland got in touch and asked us if we wanted to choose something online as a gift, I initially thought YES, matching boots Bey and Jay style with Timmy, until I decided to explore the Accessories department online. Seriously guys, THE BAGS, OH THE BAGS! Soft and supple leather totes in bright yellow, chic navy blue and classic tan and greys. They're not cheap with prices starting at £140 but hey, you're on the Timberland online store here so let's face it, you weren't expecting fast fashion right, you're here for quality and tradition? The Parkside is £200 but I was considering investing in a good leather bag anyway and £200 would probably only buy me half of one of a similar size from the brands I was shortlisting, so it's all good up in this hood. To the outfit! . . .

Outfit: Jumper - Wildfox, Shirt - House Of Fraser, Jeans - Wildfox, Boots - Jeffrey Campbell, Bag - c/o Timberland, Necklace - Mi Moneda, Watch - Daniel Wellington.

It's the perfect size for what I was looking for, a shopping bag that I could carry my purse, phone and camera in, whilst at the same time popping in those small purchases that come in teeny carrier bags. The leather is unbelievably soft and touchable, I love the slightly tarnished look too. I think it looks a touch more casual than polished leather, especially in this gorgeous tan colour. It's also very lightweight considering the size, and inside you'll find a simple preppy striped lining and interior pockets, all wrapped up with a concealed zipper all the way across the opening for security.

I love the little logo to the lower edge of the bag, so discreet yet still noticeable to the trained eye ;) I've already had several friends say how much they love my new bag, quickly followed by a 'Oh, is it Timberland, I didn't even know they did women's bags?!' once they notice the stamp! I think we're so conditioned to associating brands with certain products that we close ourselves off to investigating what else they might do? We're sure as hell missing out though!

This bag matches my JC cat Lita's perfectly, purrrfect partners! I think these are now in their 3rd or 4th year with me, I can't remember to be honest but they're testimony to enduring style and even though the Lita is a tad out of favour now, it just shows that buying an 'It' style in a pattern that means a lot to you can make the pounds per wear go a hell of a lot further! Now I have this bag to set them off you'll be seeing as much of these babies in 2014/2015 as you did in 2011/2012! 

Happy weekend everyone, link me to what you're wearing!

  2. What a gorgeous bag! I had no idea Timberland did them, I only associated them with the boots. Definitely a good investment, I think it's always worth spending a bit more on bags to make them last x
