TOT Runway: Momtrends Back-to-School Fall Style Tips


Momtrends Back-to-School Fall Style Tips

At the annual Momtrends Back-to-School Event held this year in the gorgeous Vera Bradley showroom in Manhattan I got the scoop on the latest fashion trends for the upcoming school year.

The Vera Bradley team revealed that orange, cobalt blue and pink are the HOT colors this Fall!

Also, did you know Vera Bradley made backpacks and lunch totes for kids? Check out their full back-to-school collection here. Take a look at these bold and soft bags:
The event kicked off with a fashion show with kids wearing fashionable back-to-school finds from Carter’s, Appaman, Lands End, Stride Rite and French Toast. This included a showcase of uniforms from French Toast with shoes with pops of color, biker cool styles from Appaman and casual chic fashions from Carter’s.

  2. Ocean Blues & Berry Hues-girls (radiant orchid)
    Kotaro, Berry / Blue, dynamic
TIP: Shoe shopping should always be done later in the afternoon or evening, since feet swell over the course of the day.

Meanwhile, I went home with a cute Trimmed Vera in Ziggy Zags bag ($88) in orange and pink chevron stripes, which I then used as my flight carry-on bag to BlogHer. It held my laptop, kindle and iPad nicely. Lots of pockets and it was comfortable on my shoulder.
