Well, fall has finally arrived, at least in the Upper Midwest. The leaves are slowly starting to turn thanks to the 40 and 50 degree nights we’ve been having. When I wake up in the mornings, the air streaming through my open windows is downright chilly.
Normally I feel a little sad at summer’s passing. But not this year! I’m really excited that the weather is starting to change, and instead of feeling nostalgic I feel excited and hopeful about what’s to come.
The great thing about Fall is that it means the summer bag goes into hibernation, and it’s time to update for cooler weather. Browns, oranges, and deep reds are represented in nature, as well as in many of our fall handbags! I wanted to highlight some of our bags that I think are perfect for the cool, blustery days of fall.
1. Cotton Modern Eco Handbag #1
Our Cotton Modern Eco Handbag makes a perfect Fall bag. The soft brown and orange makes me think of going back to school on a college campus, or bundling up for an early bonfire!
2. Beaded Sling Bag
Our Beaded Sling Bag is another Fall favorite of mine. I love the deep red color, and the bright beads on this bag really make it sparkle. This would also make a wonderful bag for the holidays.
3. Hemp and Corduroy Handbag
Rich purple is another color I love wearing in the fall. Our Hemp and Corduroy handbag has a perfect combination of red, deep teal, and purple.
4. Hemp and Kashmir Wool Bag
Our Hemp and Kashmir Wool bags are some of my favorites. The reason is because the stitching on these bags are amazing! They’re incredibly soft, and it’s obvious a lot of time and care went into each of these bags. I have one of these wool bags myself, and it’s a perfect accessory for this time of year.
