The Falabella mini-shoulder bag and the Michael Kors oversized watch

I had my birthday a few days ago and this is what I got: a black mini-shoulder bag and an oversized watch.

I've been wanting a Stella Mccartney Falabella bag for some time but I always found them a bit too heavy because of the metal chain trim. However, when I decided that I wanted a mini-shoulder for my birthday I thought the Falabella would be perfect as the weight is not such an issue on smaller bag. I was looking for something versatile and this bag is exactly that, I can wear it as a shoulder bag, as a cross-body bag and even as a clutch. It reminds me of the classic Chanel bag without being a ridiculous copy like you can find in other brands.

It also comes in lemon yellow if you're into the colored bags trend and both are available online at most luxury retailers (Net-a-Porter, My Theresa, Luisa Via Roma, Farfetch, etc)

As for the watch, I have been wanting an oversized Michael Kors for some time (I don't need to tell you that I had one on my wish list, right ?) but I wasn't sure about the color. I finally went with the silver one because as my husband says it's more "me". I agree with him, the silver one suits my style better, but I wouldn't say no to any of the other two for Mother's day(so husband, if you are reading...). This watch is available everywhere, in stores and online, but as Shopbop has a 20% discount on everything until April 18 midnight, I would look there if you're buying it now (here is the silver version).

How about you, what will make your day on your birthday ? I would love to know what is in your birthday wish list !
