Mother’s Day With Aspinal Of London
Despite being a fully-fledged grown up with a fiancé and mortgage to pay every month, I’m still totally reliant on my mum. I know it sounds bad, but despite my age, my mum still does so much for me. From laundry when I go up to visit her, to sorting out my admin, my mum is always there for me and always willing to help with whatever I need. I feel so lucky. Whilst I do believe Mother’s Day was invented by a greetings card company to make a little extra cash during a quiet month, I still think it’s a great excuse to say ‘Hey mum, thanks for everything!’.
Aspinal Of London
Ever since I was a child my mum has always taught me ‘buy cheap, buy twice’, she always told me off for buying throw-away items and fast fashion and even when it comes to food, skincare and even knitwear, she tells me to buy the best that I can afford. Don’t get me wrong, she would never want me to overspend or leave myself short, but she would always rather we have fewer, quality items, rather than a wardrobe full of Primark. A brand my mother loves is Aspinal Of London, she goes crazy for their stylish shapes, hardwearing leathers and classic British branding. It’s a brand we both swoon over. Personally, I am drawn to he bucket bags and ruck sacks in the colourful shades and metallic finishes, she on the other hand loves the big brown and black tote bags with the chic buckle detailing.
Mother’s Day Gifts
Aspinal Of London have a great selection of Mother’s Day Gifts, from jewellery boxes to make-up bags, passport holders to wallets. I toyed with the idea of getting her an Oyster card holder for when she comes to visit me in London, I also considered getting her a silk scarf which could wear around her neck on a cold day, or hang off her handbag on a warmer day, but eventually, I decided to get her a beautiful new wallet. My mum is super organised with her cards, receipts, cash (and everything else in life), so a big purse fits into her life as well as her handbag. Sometimes she will pop out to the shops without her handbag and instead use an oversized wallet as a mini-clutch. For my mum, it’s just as important to her that the inside is functional and organised, as the outside is smart and stylish.
Continental Clutch Zip Wallet
This luxury leather purse is made of saffiano Italian calf, which has been treated to ensure a hardwearing exterior. It has all the compartments she could ever need for all her cards, cash, documents and anything else she might need. I always find a zip around fastening much better than a popper, as there is less chance of any cards or cash slipping out. I am so excited about give her this wallet, I just hope she doesn’t look at my blog until after the big day!
