Backpack Style

So recently I’ve been obsessed with backpacks. Cross-body bags have been in style way too long! It’s time to switch it up, and the perfect time for that is summer. There’s something super laid-back about carrying a backpack, and it’s probably because it’s about 1000x easier to have one on all day than to hold an actual handbag. I’m all for low maintenance, effortless style, even if I sometimes don’t appear that way.

Here is some outfit inspiration including adorable backpacks!

I feel like backpacks can work with any style. There are so many different ones on the market now because people don’t just want them for school. They can be a cool statement!

I just bought this backpack from Asos and I’m obsessed with it. It’s NewLook.

What do you think about making a style statement with backpacks?

Burberry Fall 2012 Ready to Wear

I’ve been obsessively checking style.com, shopping online, (more like looking online) and reading magazines. Fall fashion is slowly creeping in, and devouring my helpless self. Of course for most people, it’s still all about summer, but I personally think it’s dull. Bring on the coats and boots! I love fall fashion. I especially love the new Burberry Prorsum fall collection. It is so classic, with the beautiful coats and patterns, yet there was something very new and fresh about the whole thing.

The bows on the waist of the coats were adorable. A very youthful, yet tasteful touch.

There was something in this collection that was my favorite, though. The shirts and sweaters with cute animals(mostly owls) on them did it for me.

What’s not to love?

Also, the men’s clothes were just superb. They were a little out there in some aspects, but pay attention guys, because this is the way to dress for cold weather. No question about it.

Meadham Kirchhoff

Recently I’ve been researching the new Fall Runway Shows. And one of my favorites is Meadham Kirchhoff. (If you click on that link, you can watch the show) The ready-to-wear collection is so fun and girly, with a 70’s-80’s vibe. It is everything I want, but it’s way too expensive for my little wallet. Check out some of the pictures from the show:

The shoes were all glittery, in this odd shape, but I thought it went perfectly with the styling.

The bags were all very funky and bat accessories were involved in a lot of the looks.

The alien makeup was amazing and totally completed the collection. Even though it was a little out there. 

The whole show was overall fun and cute, complete with models throwing glitter all over the runway. That is one show I would love to go to. And the clothes I wish I could have. What do you think of the new collection? I personally love it.
