FEED 2 Kenya Bag on Bateman’s

Fall in New England is a spectacle to behold. It tugs at your heartstrings. Born and raised New Englanders, living near and afar, are like homing pigeons needing to return to our nest to witness nature’s final colorful hoorah. My older brother Peter happily lives in San Francisco. For most of the year I get Palo Alto and SF weather updates. Pete loves to tell me he is wearing flipflops, living the dream and hiking most weekends in Cali duuuude (he conveniently leaves out he works 7 days a week!). But an interesting thing has happened the past few days. Pete is homesick! When he found out that I was hiking with the fam this weekend in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, he grew nostalgic and a bit melancholy. Fall in New England for our family is synonymous with hiking, canoeing on Bateman’s pond, apple picking and cider donuts, pumpkin beer, pumpkin whoopie pies, Head of the Charles, and a return to wood fire dinners. Did I say pumpkin, anything pumpkin? What lead to this post was a recognition that I had Peter exactly where I wanted him. As the only girl in my family, I had the upper hand and knew it and had to take advantage of the situation. With camera in hand, I set out to photograph some of Pete’s favorite spots and happily sent them to him! batemans-pond-concord-new-england-fall-buggy-valhouli-farb-1 Sad to say but I have a go to Fall uniform that typically consists of jeans, riding boots, a Ralph Lauren cashmere sweater and depending on the weather a quilted vest or jacket. I convince myself that Accessories prevent my uniform from being uniform! If you don’t have a FEED Bag by Lauren Bush Lauren, think about purchasing one asap! The FEED Kenya Bag accomplishes three things; it is extremely stylish in an outdoorsy kind of way, can tote anything from groceries to camera accessories, and the best part is you can feel good about your purchase as each FEED 2 Kenya Bag (the one I’m carrying) provides two children with school meals for one year in Kenya. Fashion with a conscience – a win, win. The money raised through the FEED Foundation has provided over 60 million meals to school children. That’s pretty remarkable. Each artisan-made FEED 2 Kenya Bag is constructed with burlap and features intricate beading and distinctive Masai print lining. new-england-foliage-concord-batemans-pond-buggy-valhouli-updated-1

    Love the bag! Neat that it comes in so many different styles and price points too. I would love to experience a New England fall. In the Pacific Northwest the colors aren’t nearly as dramatic, and I haven’t even worn my boots yet because it’s been unusually warm!

      Thanks Shelby! FEED is such an awesome company – they also have the cutest Trick or Treat bag for UNICEF! New England Fall is stunning, although the aftermath can be pretty gray and cold! I hope you have been able to break in your boots 🙂
