Behold my new backpack! Isn't it a monochrome beauty.

This is the Whistles Verity leather backpack and it's the newest addition to my ever growing grown up handbag collection.

I say grown up because until about 3 years ago you would most likely have seen me with a proper sports backpack thrown over my shoulder carry my worldly possessions. Well, not quite all of my possessions but most daily things would've been carried in a backpack (or a rucksack as I called it).

But now, since i'm a grown up(!), I've taken a liking to designer handbags and when this one came up I knew I had to have it. I'd been eyeing it from afar for months. Secretly hoping for a discount code or to buy it with my discount on ASOS. But I couldn't quite stretch to the cost. Then it went on sale, for HALF PRICE, and I added it to my little internet basket and it was here within a few days.

It's big but not so big that's it unmanageable. It has the obligatory backpack carrying straps as well as a loop handle on the top large enough so that you can carry it on one arm. The colour is great and will go along with most outfits. There's a large zipped flap at the top (main) compartment and a large pocket on the front which not only had a flap but a zip too for added security. The leather is soft and good quality but i fear getting that crisp white section dirty! My beloved Alexander Wang Rocco bag in grey leather is all jean stained and I don't know how to get it clean. Do you have any tips? I've tried leather sofa wipes - didn't work.

Anyway, back to this lush backpack. I'm so pleased with it and will certainly get it out when the spring has properly sprung.
