My husband regularly tells me I have a slight ‘problem’ when it comes to handbags.  Although I might be able to see his point, he can’t really understand mine!  Every woman, at some point in her life, needs a quality handbag.  What’s that old saying again? ‘Buy right, buy once’?

I see it like this, majority of women use a handbag every single day.  Plus if you’re like me, you’ll take everything including the kitchen sink with you and so it needs to be a substantial, hardy bag! I am loving all the new country styles out at the minute from the bright to the slightly more sedate!  So I thought, this month, I’d share some of my favourites with you, which are perfect for those classy days out at the agriculturals!

Alice handbag in tan leather by Grays Equestrian

  1. You cannot go wrong with a Grays Equestrian handbag and of course the matching purse!  The Alice Handbag in Tan leather coupled with the tan leather Lily purse is ultimate equestrian chic!  The snaffle bit detail is a subtle nod to the horsey girl and really compliments any outfit! It may be a little more costly but being made from buffalo leather means it should last you a very long time!

The Shandwick Check Handbag by Ness Wilma

  1. This stunning Ness Wilma Handbag is really stand out in this gorgeous yellow tweed effect colour.  The Shandwick Check is stunning especially when coupled with a gorgeous tan gilet and your favourite skinny jeans!  With plenty of room for your everyday essentials and lined with a beautiful polyester lining this bag really is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day!

The Ebony handbag from Ness in Applecorss Herringbone

  1. You really can’t be any more ‘country’ than with this classic Ebony handbag, again from Ness.  The stunning Applecross Herringbone colour is the perfect tweed to compliment a gorgeous wax or matching tweed jacket.  Ideal for those who prefer to carry a bag in ‘briefcase’ style as it does not have a long strap.  So essentially it’s for the country lady who means business! Why not team it with the Erica purse for matchy goodness too?

Messenger Bag From Grays Royal Equestrian Range

  1. Finally, for the horse lover, this great everyday messenger bag from Grays Royal Equestrian range is perfect!  This bag has plenty of room for your everyday accessories and the equestrian print, with stirrup detail on the buckles, is a lovely subtle print for those who prefer a ‘quiet’ everyday bag!
