There is no place like your comfort zone, but why not step outside with a Sophie Hulme bag. It will become a whole another world, dressing to suit your handbag.
The real key to any of the Sophie Hulme bags or a statement style handbag is to keep your outfit clean & simple, by wearing at least one piece that has a slight texture or a bit of interest to it (example - the grey knit with a pain white denim & sleek textured heel.)
Since we are on the topic of knits, it is getting a little fresher in the mornings here in New Zealand. So, it is important to keep your over sized knit to a slimmer & flattering (to you) pant/skirt or shorts. Otherwise you will look and feel larger than you are.
Remember what your mom use to tell you all the time, "Less is more darling."
