āsum‘s line of bags are the definition of effortless style. Creative, practical, casual yet with great lines. Project Runway alum Angela Sum’s draped bags are made of soft linens, washed cottons, and full grain leathers, and each one is manufactured ethically. I love the artful look each one could bring to any outfit.

Fall is my favorite season, but it’s for the crisp air and wardrobe options rather than the pumpkin spice lattes (blech!) and shorter days. And I’m past ready to bring out ankle boots, sweaters, and hats. I wouldn’t mind adding these things to my life either…

Backpacks + Rucksacks

Backpacks-1-Design-Crush
The Roll Top Backpack

It’s the first day of August, can you believe it? Almost time for back-to-school, football season, bonfires, and more of my favorite things, many of which require toting around a heavier load than my small saddlebag purse can accommodate. My go-to is a striped chambray backpack that I scored on sale last fall, it’s versatile enough to carry along on a hike or use as a weekend bag. Check out these thirteen backpacks that are both modern and functional.

Building Block

Building Block-1-Design Crush

 

Crushing on these beautiful structural bags by Building Block. The LA-based brand was created in 2011 with the intent of clearing away conventional standards of luxury by magnifying what is essential and editing out excess. I’d say they’ve stayed true to their mission and love what that means for the rest of us.
