Now I recently got asked this and I’d love to give you a different answer but the truth is these three words really sum me up...
Ambitious, motivated and tired (the tired part is the Taurus in me – love a nap, LOL).
What do you think makes a great handbag?
Simplicity…sounds boring but in my opinion less is more when it comes to bags. Clean lines and neutral tones always look so effortless and classy - Katie Loxton do it so well!
Tell us about your Katie Loxton Edit; why did you want to include these styles?
I wanted to create an edit that was timeless and full of styles that can be worn every day. Whether you’re going to work, off on a weekend away or having drinks with the girls, I really feel like there’s a style for everyone and every occasion in my edit.
What’s your favourite piece from the edit? How would you style it?
Now this is a tough question as I honestly love it all but I have to say I’ve been using the Alyce Mini Crossbody non-stop! It’s the most gorgeous cream colour and I love the versatility of it having a top handle and a crossbody strap. My absolute holy grail bags are the Weekend Bags though, my black one comes everywhere with me and I can’t wait to use the cream one all summer!
What SS22 trends are you most excited about?
Going to a beach club…is that a trend? If not let’s make it one lol! No honestly, I don’t really go much on trend pieces. I stick to more timeless pieces that can be worn year after year.
Who is your style crush?
Hailey Bieber…I know everyone says it but it’s because she’s too cool.
What are your summer plans?
Travel, travel and more travel (I hope!) honestly, I just can’t wait to get away and explore the world again with my Katie Loxton Weekend Bag by my side! No, in all seriousness I hope we all get away somewhere nice and warm this summer.
Do you have any summer holidays planned? What are your three travel essentials you’ll be packing in your Weekend Bag?
Well as I’ve said I hope to travel lots but my first trip and the only one I have booked so far is to Dubai. My 3 essentials will be my Katie Loxton Pouch for all of the important things like my passport, money etc, enough clothes for 4 weeks even though I’m going for 5 days (everyone does that right?) and a big pair of Sunglasses to hide my hungover eyes around the pool in the mornings - the ones from my edit are perfect haha!
What are your summer wardrobe essentials?
Depends what part of the world I’m in, but my London summer essentials would be; a white linen shirt, pair of light blue denim shorts, my Catalina Sunglasses from my edit, black blazer (you need one all year round IMO), black linen short dress, denim jacket and a pair of Converse.
What are the everyday essentials you carry in your handbag?
Cards, keys, chewing gum, vlogging camera, lip balm, lipstick (you need both lip products, they’re essential!!), tissues and then a whole load of other random stuff I never use but still insist on carrying around with me every day of my life - surely you can relate? I have to say the Zana Crossbody fits it all in nicely!
What made you want to collaborate with Katie Loxton?
I couldn’t live without my Weekend Bag, it comes everywhere with me, I’ve raved about it to my friends, my family (they all have one ha) and my online community know how much I love and use it too, so for me when you love something that much as well as loving the brand who created it and their values it was an absolute honour to be able to have my own edit with them.
I also find the story behind the brand and how it started so inspiring and it’s lovely to see someone’s dreams become a reality.
