Brahmin Handbags Fall 2016 collection collaboration with Meagan's ModaIf you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you already know I am a longtime fan of Brahmin Handbags. You’re probably also aware of my complete obsession with fall and the rich colors and textures seen in autumn fashion. Today, I’m combining these two loves of mine for a special preview of Brahmin’s brand-new Fall collection.

According to the Brahmin Blog, the collection was inspired by the convergence of classic splendor and rustic countryside in England. This season boasts a wide spectrum of designs and fabrics, all of which come together to make timeless pieces. To complement their elegance, I took my bags to some of the most beautiful spots in Naples, Italy last weekend.


Look 1 :: ‘Sonny’ crossbody in Toffee Rockdale

A luxe blend of leather and suede with an intricate woven pattern make this crossbody style a total showstopper. The ample size provides plenty of room for your essentials, yet it’s small enough not to be cumbersome when you need to carry it hands-free. navy lace-up romper, Stuart Weitzman 'Tiegirlbingo' lace up block heel sandals, Brahmin 'Sonny' saddlebag Toffee RockdaleIf you’re in need of a bag which will transition effortlessly from summer to fall, this is it! I love how the neutral ‘Toffee Rockdale’ tan color works now with my summer outfits and will look even better with boots and cozy sweaters later. navy bell sleeve lace-up romper, Brahmin 'Sonny' crossbody Toffee Rockdale, Stuart Weitzman 'Tiegirlbingo' lace-up sandalsBrahmin 'Sonny' saddle bag Toffee Rockdale, Brahmin 2016 fall collection collaborationBrahmin handbags organizational features, Brahmin 'Sonny' saddlebag Toffee RockdaleOne thing I always tell people about Brahmin is that NO OTHER BRAND understands organization as well. If you’re like me and want your bags to have a place for everything, this is the brand for you. No matter the size, each bag has multiple pockets inside and almost always has an outside pocket, which is crucial for quick access to my phone. The ‘Sonny’ easily holds a full-size wallet, sunglasses, and small cosmetics case.Villa Pignatelli Naples Italy, travel blogger based in ItalyVilla Pignatelli mansion French decor, Naples Italy

This may be my favorite style yet: the silhouette is classic, yet modern, thanks to its geometric edges. Piazza del Plebiscito Naples Italy, travel blogger based in ItalyBrahmin 'Priscilla' satchel stone carlisle, Brahmin 2016 fall collection collaboration Meagan's ModaI adore exotic prints and this embossed snakeskin is truly stunning.

The size is plenty large, but not overwhelming for petite ladies. I took it with me on the train to Naples and it was able to accomodate my wallet, large cosmetics case, small lipstick case, sunglasses, and iPad (and I even zipped it shut!) One of my other favorite Brahmin organizational features—which is rarely in other bags—is their signature key clip. I never have to dig around in my bag for keys, which is crucial (trust me: you’ll never realize what you’ve been missing until you use one!)long drapey beige vest over maxi dress, Brahmin 'Priscilla' satchel Stone Carlisle, collaboration with Meagan's ModaWhich Brahmin speaks to your style?
