Fall 2018: August

August can be kind of an odd month. You’re still holding on to the warmth of summer, but at the same time pumpkin spice latte season is in reach. We don’t like to play favorites when it comes to summer and fall, which is why this month we’re celebrating both! From new arrivals to brighten up your fall attire to last minute summer getaway ideas, we have five things you won’t want to miss this month that bid a heartfelt farewell to summer and a cheery hello to fall!

    In the apparel line, could you create blazers or jackets with the Vera Bradley patterns? For those of us that are career women, this would be a great asset to our wardrobes! One jacket paired with an arsenal of basic solid tops and pants would make getting ready for work a dream! Including traveling! We would always look stylish! Give it a thought Vera Bradley!
