Fall is here! Well, at least in my mind it is even if the weather is still saying summer.
I’ve decorated my house weeks ago in anticipation of cooler weather and cozy nights. I can’t wait for fall activities with the kids and dates out in the crisp autumn nights with my hubby either.
Of course, for all these things, I’ll need a good hand bag to accessorize with. So for today’s blog, I want to share my top 5 favorite bags to use in the Fall time and why.
Noticeably missing from this list will be the Louis Vuitton Speedy and Neverfull (reviews linked HERE & HERE). These bags are cult classics for the fall, with good reason. And they are some of my favorites too. But for this blog, I wanted to touch on some other options that I have that aren’t mentioned nearly as much.
Montsouris Back Pack
This backpack is prefect for fall family fun!
I have talked about the Montsouris MM backpack in some detail in this post here. And it’s indeed one of my favorites, particularly for family fun days in the fall.
Besides the classic monogram coloring being prefect for this time of year, backpacks just make so much sense for when you’re out and exploring with the kids. This backpack allows me to go handsfree while at the local pumpkin patch or park and can fit just about everything I need for my kids and I. Often times, I pack a smaller purse like the Pochette Accessories and keep my personal items stored in that, and then fill the rest of the space with extra clothing, snacks and juice for the babies.
The only downside to this backpack in the fall time is that the straps and and the bottom of the bag are untreated leather, meaning that its susceptablite to water damage. Our fall can get really wet, so this can sometimes be an issue for us. I also wish this bag came with feet, to protect the bottom when I want to set it down. I did end up buying mine used though so I’m not too concerned about staining it.
Saint Laurent Nano Sac De Jour
My go to choice for shopping trips and quick errands.
If you’re looking for an easy bag to use for shopping trips and quick errands, the YSL Nano Sac De Jour is a great option.
Featuring double top handles and a removable crossbody strap, this bag is easy to carry and while boxy in shape, it doesn’t feel bulky at all because of its size.
Don’t let its petite size fool you though–for it’s size, this bag holds a lot and I find it comparable to the Alma BB in terms of what it can fit.
With its textured leather exterior and 4 metal feet, this bag will hold up to most weather events–though, it does have an open top which is something to think about if you’re in a really wet climate.
Over all though, because of how easily this bag is to use and how early I can fit my personally needs,, its a top choice for errands and shopping in the fall for me.
A prefect bag for work & business .
The Montaigne BB is one of my top bags to use for business and I love using it in the fall.
The Empreinte leather, which is a beautiful grained calfskin is weather resistant and great for climates that experience hectic falls.
While this is an open top bag, the center compartment is roomy with a zipper, so if you’re worried, you can toss your items in there.
This bag is split into 3 sections which is wonderful for organizing your documents, personal items and tech such as laptops, cellphones and tablets.
This bag also feature a double top handle with a nice sized drop, and a shoulder strap. While you can’t wear this bag cross body, having the shoulder strap options makes this bag easier to carry.
The Montaigne BB also has 4 feet on the bottom which is really nice since I find that with business bags, I tend to set them down on a table or chair a lot as I’m digging through it. Having the feet protects the bottom of the bag from scratches and dirt so I love having it there.
Toy Lou Lou Bag
Easy date night bag.
While I was debating on including the Gucci Marmont Super Mini here, I ultimately decided on going with the Toy Lou Lou bag for the best option for Autumn date night.
I’ve mentioned my purchasing of this bag here in this post, so feel free to read up a bit more on this bag.
This bag comes in a variety of treated leather options that is again weather resistant. I also love the strong magnetic closure on this bag as it keeps my items very secure.
This bag features a removable strap, so it can be worn as a clutch, cross body, over the shoulder or replaced with another strap all together.
I could rave about the LouLou all day for many reasons but overall I find it to be the prefect date night bag.
All purpose fall bag.
Lastly, I wanted to mention the Louis Vuitton Favorite MM, as its truly an all around favorite of mine!
Besides for work, this bag is an easy go to for any occasion with its straps, size and cavity.
I own the Damier Ebene version with the chocolate checkered print and treated leather strap, so it can be considered an all weather bag. While the strap isn’t adjustable, it’s a nice length to wear crossbody and is also removable. The bag also comes with a gold chain that you can use to wear the bag over the shoulder, or let it dangle and wear it as a clutch. With all the options for wearing this bag, it’s easy to transition it from day to night.
The Favorite also holds a fair bit inside for its size. It holds just as much as my Toy Lou Lou if not more. So while it might not hold the kitchen sink, If I’m going to the local park with the kiddos and then running to the store, and topping my night off with dinner with my hubby or friends, this is the bag I gravitate towards because it transitions so easily.
Of course there are other bags that I use during this time of year, but these are my top 5 favorite for the fall. These go with most any outfit, all weather and are easy to use.
All of these bags can be found on Fashionphile for a discounted price. However, I do think if you’re interested in the Toy LouLou, I suggest checking out Nordstrom, Net-A-Porter or Saks Fifth Ave first, as they often have promotions and the bags are comparable in price new vs in excellent second hand condition. As always, if you’re going to shop at the department store, check out Rakuten to earn cash back on your purchase as well.
