Assessing a Statement Floral Bag

Inspired by Janet I’ve been wanting a statement bag with some subtle drama to uplift my athleisure outfits because I often feel to yang/masculine in them, so I’ve ordered this backpack bag.  Adding some flare yoga pants and flowy wrap cardigans will help with the femininity too.  

The first thing I did was see if I could put together accessory and shoe bundles with it and knew my hiking sneakers were perfect with it along with simple pink and black earrings and a hat for cold weather.   I’m set for camping, hiking, working out etc.  Lots of color potential with this bag: black, white, red, pink, purples, lilac and lavender.  

Second, I put together some bundles for casual summer and autumn/winter/spring and tried them out with a few more smart casual outfits.  I can see a I have a gap and could use some black sandals.  I think this bag will be super versatile for me for 4 seasons!

    I love that bag, and I am fascinated by your ability to make those pictures, as well as your cool matching choices. I've always wanted to try a fashion backpack, but I'm afraid it wouldn't work with my body type.

    Very pretty! I have 3 printed style backpacks from Herschel and they are all workhorses for me. They go with everything!

    (Just don’t wear them in heavy rain. They are not water resistant.)

    I’m admiring your skill with these photo groups - looks like a lot of cropping amd other creative stuff though? Anyways , I’ve always admired those floral backpacks even though it’s not my vibe . Looks like you picked a perfect one for yourself !

    Very pretty print! The New Yorker in me could never wear a backpack, but it has a lot of styling potential.
