seasonally yours -- fall bags.



ATTAINABLE: Zara Wool Blazer with Faux Leather Sleeves
www.zara.com; $89.90
Since I can be a bit of a wimp about wearing full-on leather pieces, I'm a huge fan of outfits adorned with simple touches of leather for a little added toughness.  This gorgeous blazer is exactly what my fall wardrobe needs -- it's chic, warm, and pretty without being precious.  I'm convinced that it would go with everything in my closet, from skinny jeans and boots to pencil skirts and pumps and, best of all, it's an absolute steal.

One of my favorite things about autumn is breaking out new bags.  Perhaps it's the nostalgic excitement of getting a new backpack for school, but there's something about the season that makes me want to hunt down a new carryall for my essentials.  And this year's trends are all utter perfection.  Structured satchels are always a fall favorite of mine -- pretty and practical, they hold everything that I need and still look chic.  Studs add a little edge to any outfit, and I'm in love with deep, rich tones for autumn, particularly Bordeaux shades that practically act as neutrals.  Cross-body bags are not only cute but also practical, and envelope clutches add a vintagey, ladylike element to both daytime and evening looks.  I'll take one of each, please.

seasonally yours -- fall bags.



What are YOU carrying around this fall?

I just switched to my fall bag last week.my summer one was a light weight, light brown jcrew tote. My winter one is a Marc Jacob thick black leather oversized hobo. It just feels more 'fall'....now I need the temp to actually drop! 85 today?!?!

I really want an academic style leather bag this fall. But I don't even know where to begin looking...and where I can find one affordable. Sigh.
