Every season, I try to invest in one new, high quality bag that I will use for years and I think fall bags might be my favorite. This season, I’ve gotten two that I just can’t live without. There are still a few more I really want, so I wanted to share all of my fall favorites here.

I’ve already completely gushed over this bag in another post, so I won’t repeat myself, but this bag is the PERFECT fall bag. The wine color paired with the clean structure make for a great bag in any setting. Its size and style makes it appropriate for a work setting, while its fun pop of color makes it great to spice up a casual look as well. This bag will definitely be my go to this season!

Backpack: Vera Bradley Quilted Amy
I’ve already make my obsession with backpacks clear, but I just had to share my all time favorite with you: the Vera Bradley quilted leather backpack. I didn’t share it before because it’s new, but this bag is everything. The smooth, buttery leather is not what you’d expect from Vera Bradley since they’re new to the leather game, but they totally did this right. The quilted effect gives the bag some interest and the functionality of this great bag can’t be beat. Get it in black for the perfect fall backpack.


What’s special about Gigi New York clutches is their wide array of colors, the fun tassels, and the gorgeous, exotic textures. I own one in the stone color and the neutral tone goes with everything. Although I’m not much of a clutch girl, when I do wear one, this is it.

Crossbody: Chanel
Let’s be honest: I can’t afford Chanel. And even if I could, I would probably feel guilty paying $5,000 for a bag. I mean, I could feed a village with that. But thankfully there are stores like Bella Bag where I can trade in my old designer bags for new (to me) bags. Which is exactly what I plan to do very soon! These gently used designer bags are in excellent condition & hey, no one has to know that you weren’t the first owner!

Every time I wear this bag, I have to fight off all the people clamoring after the beauty. Well, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but for real, I get compliments nonstop on this one. The gorgeous print is fun, but still clean due to the black and white color palette. It’s the perfect fall tote that I will definitely continue to wear into winter.

What is your favorite bag this season?
