The Fashion Freckle's Tangerine Dream

Blogger Jess van Vyk tries out a bold New Look backpack

Meet Jess van Vyk, blogger at The Fashion Freckle and the first person we thought of when we wanted someone to style this amazing orange backpack from New Look. We’re pretty jealous of her. Not only is she gorgeous but she’s managed to nail sophisticated style at the tender age of 20 better than most of us hope to by 30. As you can see, she’s got a classic, tailored approach to dressing that’s equal parts high powered female and lady of leisure, only the best combination.

Anyway, she styled up this dream of a backpack and we were pretty happy with the results. Usually averse to colour, Jess went all out and even surprised us by throwing some print into the mix.

"As much as I love a monochromatic colour palette, sometimes gloomy, grey weather calls for a bit of brightness. This is where my beaut of a new bag comes in... While I am not always the most welcoming when it comes to colour, orange (and mustard) are always my exceptions. Just like in life, sometimes our outfits need a bit of a pick-me-up."

Too true.
