Like pretty much everyone on the internet, I am obsessing over Bey’s new visual and musical treat Lemonade. So much so, it would be wrong to not celebrate it in a handbag! When it comes to daily style, it comes natural to me to take what some people may see as risks. But really, I can’t think of a better way to pull an outfit together than a personality injection, so items that speak for themselves are always warmly welcomed – like this super cute Lemonade carton bag from Accessorize.

With oodles of novelty prints invading the runways lately, it was only a matter of time until the high street followed. Really, it’s never been easier, or more affordable, to shop for novelty notes in your wardrobe.  From evil eyes ala Fendi to fruit and jewelled everything, this spring’s handbags are the perfect way to step out your comfort zone.

With this in mind, I thought I would go all out on the quirk side by matching my Lemonade bag with this Fendi monster eyes dupe from The White Pepper. My motto has always been go big or go home, and this outfit definitely was on the big side. Colour, fur, plastic, novelty, it’s pretty much an outfit recipe that is screaming for an edit, but actually, for me it totally works! I am never happier than when I am wearing a really playful outfit and this one definitely kept the smile on my face.

Some may say that the only drawback of wearing a novelty bag is that you can barely fit your phone in it. But really, it’s all in the packing. Check out what me and Amanda keep in our novelty handbags in the Colour Pop Girls vlog below. Hell, I even talk Beyonce there too! #OBSESSED

No matter what your fashion favourites are, when bags are this cute and affordable why would you not give it a go?! Fearless fashion is fundamentally fun. Who wants to blend in? Bey doesn’t! An instant statement is always in the bag. Will you be giving it a go this spring?

forever yours betty
