Although it’s spring over the last week or so the weather has really given us a taste of summer and the brighter mornings and warm afternoons mean I can leave my trusty leather jacket hanging at home and not regret doing so.

The pre seasonal sun also gives me (and I’m sure many others) the biggest excuse to pick up some key wardrobe pieces and start prepping my style for those summer months. For me, this means I’ll be introducing tan shades, boyfriend shirts, sandals, slip dresses and more practical handbags.

So when I was contacted by MarcB and asked if I’d like to collaborate again with something from their new SS16 collection, (which is launching on the 23rd of May) of course I said yes! Their handbags are incredibly well made, affordable and diverse which for me ticks all the boxes in what I look for in a handbag.

For me, In Spring and Summer I prefer to opt for a smaller handbag where and when I can because who wants to be carrying around the ‘kitchen sink’ in humid weather? However that doesn’t mean that I want to sacrifice room for my essentials and that’s precisely what the MarcB Staten Black Croc doesn’t do.

I’m not one to splash out on handbags but I really like the look of an evening style designer handbag teamed with a casual day time style. There’s just something about adding an expensive accessory to a pair of pumps or a plain white tee that I think looks great. It’s so simple yet instantly changes an outfit from being overly relaxed to almost like you made the effort to look so casual.

The MarcB Staten Black Croc is the perfect designer-esque style handbag with a patent croc material, silver hardware; chain strap with croc shoulder detail and twist lock closure. The structured style of the handbag teamed with the details make the bag itself looks incredibly expensive *whispers* even though it’s from the high street.

It’s of course the perfect style handbag to team with a classic LBD and a pair of heels but it’s also the perfect size to fit your essentials and team it with a more day time look. Just like every MarcB bag, it is fully lined with a leopard print material and includes an inside zip pocket for your valuables. The outer croc material (although I’d be worried it’d get scratched very easily) is incredibly hard wearing and feels well made.

The SS16 MarcB collection (including the Staten Black Croc bag) will be launched on the 24th May 2016, so keep your eyes peeled!
