Fall 2011 Preview

So ready for this hot, sticky, steamy weather to be over! I absolutely hate living here in June, July and August (unless we're at the beach!) but LUV, LUV, LUV being here in the fall. I like late September, early October best.

I like being able to wear a pair of cargo's with a lightweight sweater and some cute shoes, a pair of jeans with a short-sleeve top and killer shoes.

Happy Snails (see below) is my new favorite Vera Bradley pattern. This is a photo of the "Grand Traveler" (very similar to the "Weekender"). I have the "Weekender" in a couple different patterns and LUV it! Lots of room, lots of pockets and I love the option of using either the should strap or the hand straps. It's a great all-purpose / carry-on / long-weekend kind of bag!
I love a big brown leather bag to carry around, too. Coach recently issued a vintage collection (I think they refer to it as "Classics"). I have a bag very similar to the "Station" bag below but mine is that gorgeous British Tan color and was the very first Coach bag Cosmo bought me. I took exceptionally good care of it and it's in excellent condition. That bag has to be 13 to 15 years old (we were still living in Cincinnati when he gave it to me). It's one of those leather goods that actually looks better with age.
Love the Transatlantic bag, just not sure about the color. I love the color but don't know how much use I would get out of a green bag. I do wear alot of neutrals so maybe I could get away with it.

Of course, the mac-daddy of all bags is:
