A red bag is a true must-have!

Sun, Snow and sea.. well not really, as it is a lake but still a wonderful scenery. I must say I am spoiled for locations back home. How wonderful to see the palms and the lake surrounded by snow. A crisp day called for a crisp outfit. It was the first outing for my brand new N°21 red bag. It is my first Alessandro Dell'Acqua bag and let me say I am in love with it already! A red bag for me is a true must have for any season and especially for Spring! It is really one of those items which you simply need to have in your closet!
It really can elevate your outfit to the next level and it goes well with so many colours. On this occasion I was wearing a Zara camel coat with black & white stripes. I think the red bag really makes this outfit stand out as it goes so well with the camel and the monochrome.
Hope you like my look!
