Giving Back(packs) with STATE Bags

Leather overalls with plaid shirt and crop topHappy Veterans Day! And to all those who’ve served, a big “thank you!” From those who’ve given back to our country with their service, to companies who give back to those in need—how about we stay on the topic of doing good in the ol’ US of A today?

STATE Bags is a backpack brand with a buy-one, give-one model—for every bag purchased, STATE hand delivers an identical backpack to an American child in need. In late September, the STATE team was in Boston for three of these Bag Drops, donating 700 backpacks to kids in Lynn, Charlestown and Dorchester. I love organizations like this (Tom’s, Warby Parker—the list goes on) because money I’d probably spend on shopping anyway is now also helping someone else.

I’ve been on a major sneakers-and-backpacks kick lately, and love the Ashton bag from STATE that I’m wearing in these pics—it’s a great neutral color combo for the season (since the colder it gets, the more black gets incorporated into my daily outfits).Leather overalls with plaid shirt and crop top Leather overalls with plaid shirt and crop topMy look is inspired by one of my favorite outfits Chiara Ferragni wore during Milan Fashion Week (check it out HERE and laugh at how much better she put herself together than me haha). Do you guys follow her blog, The Blonde Salad? It’s easily one of my favorite fashion blogs out there—Chiara is cooler/more stylish than a hundred of me put together. Major girl crush.
