Top: Cotton On Striped round neck top (similar here
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' super skinny jeans (similar here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs Logo Plaque Suede Flats in red
Bag: Lodinatt two level canvas bag in Ivory and Red C/O Lodinatt

Close up of accessories:
Necklace: Diva long red heart necklace (similar here)
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes Kelly Double tour bracelet in rubis (similar here)

Thank you for all your get well soon wishes! I'm feeling better so went out to enjoy the sunshine on a walk with Cooper today. I also had a chance to use my new bag, courtesy of Lodinatt! They are a Korean bag company starting to expand to a worldwide market, and have an English site available here. If you read Korean, you can view their wider range here.

When M.K the Lodinatt designer got in touch with me to offer me a bag I was very excited - my love for bags is evident to anyone reading my blog! The first thing that came to mind when I saw the two-level canvas bag was "sports bag!". Wouldn't this bag be perfect for sticking some running shoes in, a towel, a water bottle, and change of clothes? The bag comes in navy and black, ivory and red, khaki and orange, pink and hot pink. I chose the ivory and red version.

It's got a bright zippered compartment on the bottom. Lodinatt suggest it's "for shoes", but it could also be for wet towels after a swim, or dog toys for when we go on a picnic with Cooper and have food in the bag. There is no zipper or fastening to keep the bag closed, but as I usually leave my totes open anyway this isn't an issue for me. There are a couple of zipped pockets if you have something you want to secure.

Overall there are 5 pockets including the bottom compartment, so it's a great bag for being organised, everything has a place. It's made of really sturdy canvas too - and the top corner stitching is reinforced with metal studs, I thought that was a nice touch. If you've got a tablet or Ipad that would fit in nicely, making it a good work bag.

While we only went out for a short walk today, the bag was really easy to carry and find things in thanks to all the compartments. I also like the adjustable shoulder strap. I'm a shortie so a fully adjustable strap is greatly appreciated! With all of the different ways to carry it, it's a really practical bag.

Hope you enjoyed my short review of the Lodinatt two level canvas bag. As mentioned before, the bag was sent to me free of charge by Lodinatt for review purposes. The review and opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own.

The top was last worn here, jeans here and shoes here. This is the first time I've used the Lodinatt bag.

  22. Lovely casual look, dear~ ) Amazing bag~! )

  23. Hey Mica, I think that bag looks better styled and in use than it does on the website. When I saw it, I thought it looked 'okay' but it actually looks so much better than that here in your pictures. I put my review of that Haney bag up, this one has such a great advantage over that one because this is canvas and would be sooo much lighter! xoxox

    i love how you've paired it with the red pops too :)
