Few purchases I’ve made for my wardrobe have proven more versatile than my Mulberry Willow Tote! I’ve featured it in plenty of outfits over the last month (1 / 2 / 3) but until today I’ve never shown you my favorite functionality of the bag — that it’s really two bags in one!

A tote AND a clutch!

The clutch is actually the zipped off front pocket portion of the tote. How fun is that!? It’s LITERALLY the sort of bag you can take everywhere, from day to night, from casual to dressy. Easily one of the best closet investments I’ve ever made (and don’t even get me started on how luxurious the leather and detailing are!).

What are some of your all-time favorite wardrobe investments?

    Wishes & Reality

  • Such a gorgeous look, Ashley! Your skirt is so fun, the Mulberry clutch is the perfect colour and that nail polish is a personal favourite of mine. My fave wardrobe investment is my pair of chocolate Manolo Blahnik pumps (nude on me). They make my legs look a mile long and they are so versatile and beautiful. I’ve worn them to death! Lol!
