When it comes to blogging there are certain essentials I can’t do without. For eons* I denied myself a laptop bag, always sticking my Mac into my oversized fabric tote no matter where I was off too or who I was with. Then I managed to locate a handbag that doubled as a laptop carrier and all was fine and dandy (if occasionally, a little heavy). Then, the lovely folks at Knomo offered me one of their ultra-slim laptop cases, perfect for the bumps I put my Mac Book Pro through on a regular basis and able to be carried three ways: via the detachable, adjustable strap, top retractable handle, or inside my tote again if needs be
The stylish and practical function of the slim clearly influenced my choice of outfit for this post. Back in monochrome, these amazing black lace shorts and off white roll sleeve Liv Jacquard top from Reiss is one of my go-to outfits for the summer evenings here in the UK. The shorts have a great fit, the type usually reserved for scalloped hem shorts but here the lace hem seems more sophisticated somehow. I invested in them in the recent Reiss sale but I know I’ll be wearing them for years to come.
Back to Knomo – this brand have a great selection of bags and laptop sleeves and carriers. The Zion bag in buttermilk and the perfectly sized Alba are my other favourites from the collection. I also have my eye on their Kyoto soft leather cross-body too.
