Happy Fall my friends! Who's ready to break out their boots and sweaters? (I know I am!) I absolutely love fall, and I'm so happy sapahn asked me to come back and share summer-to-fall outfits featuring some of their most beautiful and versatile bags from their Backpack collection!
Fall means that life is back in full swing: school drop off and pick up, kids activities, work events, and all the fun fall-themed activities—pumpkin patch, apple picking...the to-dos are never ending!
I need a bag that can take me through these busy days...and the backpack collection is PERFECT. Each bag I'm showing can be used in multiple ways!
Let's start with the newest and my favorite bag in the collection—the Natasha. This is a go-with-anything bag, so I chose a classic, weekend uniform: jeans, sneakers and a white tee. You can't go wrong with this basic outfit formula for fall. Top with a cardigan or jacket, and add your favorite boot or flats to warm it up.
First, if you are an expectant or new mom, YOU NEED THIS BAG. Take it from someone who didn't have a backpack when her kids were babies: a backpack is the way to go! I want to keep her for all my weekend errands and kids playdates—it's large enough to hold everything you need for kids and babies, with lots of pockets inside. The wide straps are super comfortable when you wear it as a backpack (hello hands free for diaper changes, grocery check out and more!) But I'm loving it as my weekend travel bag—add a strap and wear it as a crossbody or use it as a tote.
Summer-to-Fall outfits can be tricky this time of year, but I hang on to a lot of my summer pieces well into fall. Especially my white denim! YES, you can wear white denim year round! I pair my white jeans with deeper, richer colors like this deep berry color. Swap out your summer sandals for clogs, boots or loafers to give your white denim a fall feel.
I'll also bring in richer colors in my accessories too, like this gorgeous Moss Chloe Convertible Backpack. This color goes with everything, brings a fall feel to my white denim look and takes me from day to night as a backpack, crossbody and handbag.
My fall work looks are built on basics with layers. High waist pleated pants are everywhere this fall (and these have an elastic waist!), I like to pair them with a white tee, menswear inspired loafers, and a jacket (usually my denim jacket!)
For this look, I love the Pepper Convertible Backpack. This smaller backpack is perfect for work days. I wear it as a backpack when I walk the girls to school, take it cross body when I'm running to and from meetings and when I meet up with friends for happy hour, I simply carry her by the gold ring.
To round out my fall looks, I'll pair my lighter weight skirts with a sweater or sweatshirt. This is a great way to warm up your summer favorites and stay cozy. My clogs complete the look and match my Amelia Backpack in the ultra versatile Whisky color.
Consider this lightweight bag as an alternative to your everyday cross body. It's got multiple compartments to hold all your essentials, the prettiest lining, and is so easy to wear: just sling one strap over your shoulder as you head out the door!
I hope this blog inspires your summer-to-fall outfits! Keep those summer basics out a little longer, especially your white jeans! Then and add cozy layers, richer colors, break out the boots and clogs, and grab any of the pretty and versatile bags in the Sapahn backpack collection to complete your fall look!
