Nica: perfect prints for work and play

Nica, a high street bag brand that can do no wrong in my eyes. I’ve loved their designs ever since I first clamped eyes on them some years ago and I’ve owned a fair few styles over that time too.
I was really excited when they tweeted about a new printed collection and even more excited when they offered to send me one of the bags to style up to show how versatile prints can be. My new bag- the Nica Play Tulip Crossbody (£39) is far smaller than  the bags I typically carry but it was a much needed reason to clear the rubbish out of my bag and actually, it’s the perfect size for my needs.

For work yesterday I wore the bag with a New Look top, H&M skirt and Clarks wedges (well, actually I changed to flats before leaving as my foot already had started to hurt). I was a bit worried that the print meant I’d stick to plain outfits but the neutral colours meant it pretty much goes with everything and pattern clashing is cool anyway! It’s not the point of this post but I was amazed at how much easier it was to have a smaller bag on me for work too, less scrabbling around for what I need at my desk and much easier to store!

For the afternoon I chucked on an old Oasis top that I found lurking, my new Primark £9 skinnies and some Bertie loafers. Again it was really easy to pair the print with an outfit, although what I wore was fairly plain I could and will happily pair this bag with any number of combinations.
They may not be the most exciting of outfits (goodbye inspiration) but it does go to show how something not obviously versatile actually can be.
Welcome to your new home little bag,
I promise to try not to overwork you!
Are you a Nica fan? How would you wear a printed bag?

    Love the bird print top, but then again I am a sucker for anything with a bird print! I don’t normally buy patterned bags because I own so many patterned clothes, but that one is really pretty. Xx

  5. I love my Nica bags! I love your coral coloured top its lovely. xx

  6. Ahhh! Those are perfect for fall… xoxo

  7. I’ve not heard of nica before, love though!

  8. That bag is the perfect size, I always find crossbody bags are the easiest to carry too! I can’t believe those wedges are from Clarks.
