Product Review: Carson Mini Saddle Bag from Vera Bradley

I took these pictures a while ago and I’m finally getting around to sharing them. My intention wasn’t to write this post as a product review, it just came out naturally.  I don’t normally do product review posts, unless it’s beauty products, but this bag is seriously worth it!  I got this bag (c/o) a few months ago and I’ve been wearing it almost everyday since!

I’m not trying to make this post into a sales pitch, but if it comes out that way and you end up buying the bag — then we are all in a good place! I’m obsessed with the color, size and material. It’s the perfect size bag for a date night or night out.

I can fit everything I need in in it and there is a back pocket (that fits an iphone plus). On vacation I managed to put in my little camera, credit cards and lipstick in it without it feeling over crowded. This bag doesn’t zip, the flap covers the opening and tucks under the little embellished piece, there is also a pocket along the whole backside.

The wine color is very on trend for fall with the gold details. I love that this color can go with everything. Most of the bag is made with suede and leather. Here are a few ways that I’ve styled this bag so far this autumn:

Let’s get real now– here are a few photos from vacation using this bag because I truly loved it! I took my bag to both Dubai (the hottest place ever) and Banff (basically winter compared to Dubai!) ha, I’m telling you it’s so versatile!

Don’t mind our messy room in Dubai. I wore this maxi dress from Shein (c/o) with my Vera Bradley bag and brought my jean jacket for the cooler evening. Vera Bradley Carlson Mini Saddle Bag

I’ll share more about Canada soon, but I wore my bag with black leggings, a black turtleneck and camel coat.

This post isn’t sponsored by Vera Bradley, these are my honest opinions! I did get this bag gifted to me but I’m sharing this post because I honestly love this bag! Shop the Carson Mini Saddle Bag here.
