Fall Essential: The Leather Backpack

This season, bags are the ones making the statement. From structured mini bags to the currently reigning saddle bags they are adding an extra pop of style and utility to fall looks everywhere. One of my personal favorites this season has to be the leather backpack. Sure, roomy totes are great but switching it up every now and then doesn't hurt anyone. I was more than ready to try something new and this Vera Bradley Gallatin Big Sky Backpack was too perfect to pass up. By the way, Vera Bradley right now is on fire, their bags need to be checked out ASAP! 

As for the backpack; the leather is flawless, it's spacious and is perfectly structured, to meet the needs of even the most picky fashion icon. I have a feeling it's going to be one of my favorites throughout the season, holding everything and anything in the spacious compartments, including my too big for my mini bag phone. Until the layers really start getting piled up I'm wearing it this Banana maxi shirt dress, belted and my favorite over the kneed suede boots from last year (thought sandals might have been a better choice for yesterday's weather pattern, oops!).  Either way the Gallatin pops, making it my fall bag essential pick.
