Back To The Patchwork

Backpacks have resurfaced as the functional yet stylish choice of baggage to appropriately carry in public. I have to say I’ve always been a fan of the “true” shoulder bag but even more so when they look something like this – and it looks like even Taylor Swift agrees! As a blogger I find myself carrying more than necessary with me at all times – including a laptop and several notebooks – and couldn’t be happier with the use I’ve gotten out of this wonderpack. Whether you’re a true Jetsetter flying coast to coast or one that’s just about town, this is the bag I believe in my heart of hearts that you’ve needed all your life.

While on the topic of retro fads, let’s discuss the return of patchwork detail on today’s denim. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bigger fan now than I previously was when I first caught a glimpse of them. There’s no doubt in my mind they’ll be taking over this Fall, in styles loud and subtle. Personally, I’m digging this particular pair with the double black knee patch. Patchwork yes but not an “in-your-face” embellishment that can make this trend borderline intimidating. Let’s be honest, some of the patchwork denim options out there are very proud to be what they are, but loud isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Thankfully this denim pair offers an indoor voice option when seeking a calmer alternative.

Although not available just yet, a pair of your own can be yours when you can enter the giveaway below! This exclusive patchwork pair is part of Buffalo Jeans’ #F_it Denim Launchgreat name right? – and is the perfect addition to your in-jean-ious collection for this upcoming Fall season.
