Last week on a gorgeous sunny day, Craig and I went to the Old Mission in Santa Barbara to walk around and explore the property. We were in town visiting my Mom and taking a few days to chill and unwind. I packed pretty light for our trip to California and the one bag I brought was this new style from Brahmin’s Southcoast collection. You’ve probably heard me talk about it before and you’ve almost definitely seen me style bags from the collection in the past. This backpack from last summer is a favorite (see it styled here and here). The Eva Knoxville was the perfect travel companion. I used it as my carry-on and as my everyday bag walking around San Francisco and Santa Barbara. The soft tan leather is classic and the stitch detailing adds a bohemian vibe. It also comes in a gorgeous chalky white and the most beautiful blue (it reminds me of a day at the beach). Honestly it’s a great bag for all seasons which is what I love about so many of the Southcoast styles. I rounded up a few more of my top picks below. Let me know your favorite!
