Fall Into Summer (and a New Handbag Addition)


I love the colors that are usually associated with fall. Greys, navys, and deep shades of red make up the bulk of my wardrobe, and I feel at home wearing these colors. So when I happened upon this burgundy tote, I knew I had found my birthday gift to myself.


My J.Crew Edie bag has been my everyday handbag for a long time, and I’ve been long overdue for something a little roomier. This handbag fits the bill and I couldn’t wait to wear it with my favorite fall colors. Here I am injecting a little fall into my summer.

    Your “may have something coming in the mail” was such a tease the other day (and I thought for sure it was going to be a pair of shoes)! But well worth the wait. I adore the rich burgundy color of this tote. It’s absolutely beautiful with the gold hardware. I know you’ll wear her well!

    What a gorgeous bag, it is really something! It is very “Kelly” – rich shade, check; classic shape with a twist, check.

    p.s. Do you ever wear it on your shoulder? Or is it not a comfortable fit because of the length of the handles? I just wonder because totes can get heavy when loaded up with knickknacks and I dread lugging around 10 lb bags.

    1. Thanks Elle! The handles are just long enough to fit on my shoulder, but it’s not the most comfortable. However, this bag comes with a removable long strap that on me, can be worn on the shoulder or cross-body. I’m sure I’ll sport it that way on the blog soon. =)

    ooooh that bag is gorgeous. I love the rich burgundy color with the gold hardware. I bet you wish it was almost fall.

    That purse is gorgeous!  The colors red and burgundy remind me of you! And we definitely both have a love for studs!! And I am still not letting you forget about your college day photos that you should share!  :p

    Kelly, that bag is gorgeous! I’ve been eyeing an YSL handbag in a very similar color – so excited to see so many beautiful dark reds for this fall.

    Mr. AN is doing a seriously terrific job.  I’m so happy for you that he’s jumped on board as the blogger’s photographer/bf.  HAHAH.

    Kelly, I love, love your bag! What a delicious color.  I am really trying to quit shopping for summer clothes, but it’s hard when we haven’t even hit the hottest part of our summer in Texas, yet.  You definitely look cool!
