One of the big trends for the fall 2016 season is berry hues. Although this color trend pops up almost every autumn, it is a beautiful color palette to incorporate into one’s fall wardrobe; making it a great trend to follow this season no mater how predictable!

Since the weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area does not cool off until the end of October, it can be difficult to incorporate fall pieces into our wardrobes. That is why I love finding lightweight tee’s I can pair with jeans, or midi skirts, which reflect the fall trends, yet are weather-appropriate.

I love this cold shoulder tee from SheIn. Not only is it nicely priced way under $50, it is lightweight, washable, and totally on trend for fall. The cold shoulder trend is continuing into the new season, and the burgundy hue fits perfectly into the berry color trend. I also love the long length of the tee since it adds a little bit more style to jeans than a regular tee-shirt.

The deep v-neck on this top also adds a little bit of sass to the tee which enables it to be dressed up for evenings and parties. I wear a tank top underneath for the daytime, but if you leave out the tank, and pair this top with jeans and heels, or a black pencil skirt and heels, then you have a season, and weather appropriate party outfit. Love it!

I also need to give a shout-out to these booties. They are super comfortable and fit into fall’s metallic trend. I know I will be wearing them often this autumn season!

Proenza Schouler Hava satchel review

Pictured: Proenza Schouler Hava satchel, medium size, black leather /  lipstick / book (so good!!) / similar wallet / sunglasses

Proenza Schouler’s new Hava satchel immediately caught my eye for the fall season. I love the structured, yet relaxed vibe of the handbag. The Hava  satchel offers a lady bag, single top handle silhouette, with edgy hardware, and contrasting stitching; making it easy to wear with with jeans, or structured office attire. Love that!

The Proenza Schouler Hava satchel comes in two sizes thus far; small and medium. For the fall 2016 season, Proenza Schouler is offering the Hava satchel in smooth, soft leather, suede, and snakeskin. The handbag has been designed in neutral, classic hues, making it an instantly classic handbag to wear now, and in the future.

I chose the Proenza Schouler Hava satchel in medium. I had a hard time deciding between sharp white, or classic black. I decided to get black since I felt like I would get the most wear out of the hue.

The medium Hava is a great size! I can fit a novel, wallet, sunglasses case, keys, lipstick, small notebook, and a pen inside with plenty of wiggle room for additional items. If I remove the book, I can fit my DSLR camera inside the bag. It is more roomy than it looks!

Normally I shy away from satchela which are split in half inside. I prefer wide, open interiors because I can fit more things inside. The split in the Hava satchel is ideal because it leaves one large interior space, with a roomy pocket section which helps me separate small items from my larger items. Having an off-center split also allows me to fit my DSLR camera inside the bag, which as a blogger and Mother, is an essential feature I must have in my handbags!

The interior of the Proenza Schouler Hava satchel also offers a slit pocket which is great for receipts or keys. There is also a slim zipper compartment on the exterior of the handbag, on the backside. This is handy for large papers, tickets, or anything you want quick, yet secure access to.

Since this is a top handle satchel, it can be hard to secure the flap closure over the bag. Proenza Schouler has solved this common problem by including a hidden, interior chain which hooks on the front of the bag, making it really easy to secure the twist lock closure on the front of the handbag. Easy access, in and out of a handbag is also a key, essential feature. Thankfully the Proenza Schouler Hava satchel has that due to the smart little chain inside! Love it!

I am looking forward to wearing my Proenza Schouler Hava satchel in medium quite often. You can find the Hava satchel online in the small size here. The medium can be found online here.
