I often create an outfit around bag. Not only that, I often buy a bag I fell madly in love with and then start thinking if I actually have anything to wear with it…
Anyway, this pink and orange Tous tote is a ‘souvenir’ from Barcelona. I saw it, fell madly in love with it, and then bought it. Surely I must have tons of clothes I can wear it with… No? Well, I guess that will be the style challenge for this summer, then…
But, then I remembered this Missoni poncho I bought years ago. I’ve only ever worn it once or twice (and I’ve also worn it on the blog before) because it’s not what you’d call a very practical piece… For starters, the neckline is a bit too wide for my liking. But I still like the poncho: the colours, the pattern… It was an impulse purchase, more suited for the dream life I started creating in my head the moment I saw it than for my actual life (yeah, I have a lot stricter criteria for shopping these days, and only buy clothes that work in real life). But hey, a girl needs a few impractical statement pieces, too… Besides, the poncho looks fabulous with the bag, don’t you think?
poncho: Missoni / top: Vila / jeans: Next / bag: Tous /
shoes: Clarks / sunglasses: Michael Kors
Any ideas what to wear with the bag?
Let me know in the comments.

What a fun, fab poncho, just right for this time of year. Jacquiwww.mummabstylish.com
such a stunning bag, it looks really fabulous in your casual&elegant style, and it would go with any outfit just adding a little detail in orange or fuchsia, a brooch, a neckerchief, whatever!. I think you rock it!. I love your poncho, such an amazing pattern (lovely missoni chevron!) and it looks fresh and cool!! even if it's not very practical!besos
Thanks! I just had to get this bag, I loved the colours so much. And I'd been looking for a two-tone bag for ages…
Fantastic look! The pattern mixing with the Missoni poncho and stripey top is lovely, as is the gorgeously vibrant bag.
Wow! The bag is spectacular. I can see why you'd consider it the centerpiece of an outfit. You do it justice with this poncho which gives the bag a run for its money. Love the entire ensemble.
Thanks, Ally! Well, both the bag and the poncho were sort of impulse purchases, love at first sight so to speak…
Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Tha cape is interesting. I love your bag!
This is stunning. Not only the bag but also the poncho. Wht a beautiful piece. The neckline, although not loved by you, suits you very well. Kudos for mixing this up with stripes, although anything will do fine underneath it.The bag will go with….. brown, blue, white, olive, red, camel, cream, black.. my girl, plenty of options.Greetje
I love love your poncho! I love how you have styled it! Tres Chic.
Thank you, Marie!
This poncho is stunning! I adore it immensely. And the bag is equally gorgeous! Thanks so much for linking up with me!Shelbee
Goodness, I am not sure which I love more – the bag or the poncho! I really like the bright colors of your bag. The print and colors of your poncho are wonderful. It looks great belted and with your stripes. Thanks so much for linking up with Fabulous Friday! Also, I am currently looking for co-hosts, so I hope you will consider the opportunity, Tiina.
I just had to get the bag, it's the colour combination… Now I just need to find something else to wear it with.
Gorgeous bag! The bright pink and orange look amazing together! I love the mix of prints with the poncho and the striped top. Thanks for linking up :-)Emma xxxwww.style-splash.com
