The Leaves, They're Falling

It's that time of year. Shall I say it or do you already know? I would call it Back to School, but we're adults now, come on. Regardless, Fall is a time for change. The leaves start to pile up on the ground and suddenly you get this nagging feeling that you're ready for something new. A clean slate for the colder months.

Whether you're starting graduate school or a new job or moving to a new city, you most likely need a bag upgrade. Even if you have absolutely nothing new going on in your life, I mean, especially if you have nothing new going on your life, it's prime time to up your bag game.

Chances are, you are one of these three people:

a) You are a student, so you almost always have a stupidly large haul of books and other objects of academia glued to your back. That, or you're a two-wheelin' commuter so a no-fuss pack on your back just makes sense.

b) You hoard things in your bag. Things like paper clips, half-eaten granola bars, gum wrappers, socks...

c) You don't mess around with mess. Grab a clutch or sling a crossbody and you're out.

Or maybe depending on the day of the week, you're one or the other, or the other. It's cool, we got you.
