The Perfect Summer Backpack

Hey friends and happy Monday! Hope y’all had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. 🙂 I shot this post last week and have been dying to get it up ever since…the reason? How CUTE is this backpack?! As we stroll into summer, a chic backpack is the perfect fashion-forward handbag-hybrid…oh, and it’s a practical pick, too! This thing is not only swoon-worthy, but it’s seriously spacious…and I’m all about that! From work to play to travel, this beautiful backpack by Brahmin is the ultimate accessory.

As y’all know, Brahmin is my top pick for top-notch quality, fashionable (and affordable!) handbags. I was an avid fan well before blogging and my love for their leather goods has only grown over the years! Though I love their classic styles, their new Southcoast Summer ’17 Collection reaaaaally has me drooling.  It basically encompasses all of my favorite handbag styles (and colors) rolled into one ridiculously stunning collection. Soft leathers, neutral colors, relaxed silhouettes – Brahmin’s Southcoast line nailed it this season. My backpack is called the “Josie” and I am SO excited to rock this thing all over town and take it with me on my upcoming travels. (Spain is on the agenda next month…how cute would this be with a Barcelona backdrop?! 😉 )

I have slowly but surely been sharing more Brahmin styles from their Southcoast line (like the gorgeous Haley Cross-body from this post…LOVE the woven details…), and I’m thrilled to share a few more of my summer favorites over the next couple of months – starting with the Josie backpack!

Take a look at the full Southcoast Summer ’17 Collection HERE and check out more of my top picks from Brahmin below! Wishing you a fabulous week, XO!

    I’ve been trying on so many of those tie-front tops and just can’t seem to make them work! Maybe I’ll try out this one and see if I have better luck!

      This one is super great because it’s longer – so you can really leave it looser and have it hang lower, or tie higher up to pair with high rise jeans, etc. Very versatile and light, definitely recommend!! XOXO

    I love this outfit! Just wondering what size in the jeans are you wearing? Just for size reference!

    Hi, I was just wondering what size of top you are wearing? I’m deciding between the small or the small petite. I just want to get a visual reference before I buy. Thank you! 🙂
