When Michelle asked me to share a “Fall Must”, it took me all of 1.5 seconds to know what I would pick. Oh yes friends, for me, fall is all about “the bag”. I wish I could say fall was all about rustling leaves and picking apples and carnivals and brisk weather, and yes, I do love those things, I do. But nothing tops the quest for the perfect fall bag. Nothing…not even the apples.
Now, let me pause here to say, I don’t always actually buy a new fall bag. I just spend a lot of time thinking about them, researching them, “test-driving” them… I think this odd ritual must be some sort of carry-over from the excitement of buying new school supplies at the start of each fall. I’ve just somehow transposed the need for new #2s to the (seemingly burning) need for a new leather tote.
After looking at a lot (you know there were a lot) of bags, my fall faves all somehow seem to be caramel tote/satchel numbers. I love all of these equally for different reasons, but I’m leaning toward the “Jericho” for its utilitarian qualities. And if money were no object, that PS1 would be mine. Just saying...
