If you know me, you know my love for Vera Bradley has run deep since my early high school days. There are legit periods of my life that I associate with the patterned backpack I carried in school or the purse that was my current favorite. Heck, when Doug first spotted me on campus, he literally identified me by my pink backpack because it made me stand out. To say this brand has been important to me for years almost feels like an understatement: it’s literally who I am!
With all of this being said, I am thrilled to be partnering with Vera Bradley to help roll out the latest addition to the family: everyone meet BonBon Medallion!
This pattern is absolutely adorable because it’s the perfect mix of classic, with the use of medallions, and boho, with the grays and pops of soft colors. Most of the patterns I’ve housed in my collection have been incredibly bright and vibrant, so these colors perfectly compliment my past purchases. I love how Vera’s designs pair perfectly with the old and new styles – see below how perfectly everything compliments itself!
Vera Bradley was kind enough to let me try out this new beauty in two styles:
All perfect for a weekend in the Hamptons! When I travel, I’m all about bringing pieces that are functional and stylish and you know Vera checks all the boxes!
The first style was in the signature large cosmetic bag. Truth time: I have gifted this exact bag probably 10 times because of how absolutely wonderful it is – shout out to all my ladies rocking this bag for your makeup! Not only is it the perfect size for all your full-sized products – can’t forget about the toiletries when you travel – but it’s lined on the inside to prevent any staining, should a cap pop off.
I love the classic quilted pattern on this bag, which is signature to Vera Bradley, and adore the addition of the front zip pocket – which is perfect for keeping lipsticks and other small items secure and in one place.
But once your makeup is on, don’t you want to be able t go out and have a good time?
Of course you do and Vera Bradley knows that! That’s why when I received my ReActive Sling Backpack I squealed with delight: this is the ultimate go-to bag for any busy gal!
I love how versatile this bag is: you can wear it over your front, back or even as a belt bag. It was the perfect size for a bike ride and trip into the town – I had pockets for my wallet, keys, sunglasses and water bottle. What more do you need?
My favorite part about the ReActive products are that they’re made from 10 recycled PET water bottles – that’s almost a case depending on where you buy your waters! That means al your recycling is being repurposed into cute bags which to me is the ultimate reward. It’s super lightweight and stylish!
I’m absolutely obsessed with this pattern – both in the classic fabric and in the ReActive material. Which style do you prefer? Let me know in the comments!
