SHOP THE POST:
if you follow me on instagram you have probably seen a few new Vera Bradley pieces sprouting up. My introduction to the new side of the brand started a few weeks ago when i was lucky enough to brunch w/ some lovely chicago bloggers & Olympian Meryl Davis. It was so refreshing to chat with her and connect with such a down to earth girl. never mind the fact that shes a superstar and girl boss but she could not be kinder.
when you hear Vera Bradley (if you are like me) you immediately think of the paisley bags you used to carry in college. i’m fairly certain every girl in my sorority and on campus had one. once i left college it was a brand i grew out of. the print was reminiscent of my younger self and i wanted to move on to something more mature.
well, Vera Bradley realized that too and launched this insane leather & faux leather line that has me IN LOVE. the clutch is butter soft and is perfect for the season and i love how they kept their signature quilt and logo simple and minimal.
i have paired it with everything from dresses to jeans and tee’s and constantly get compliments on it. if you haven’t had a chance to check out their new collection i seriously would and i can’t wait to share all the ways i’ve been wearing the backpack!
enjoy the sunshine today!
