Our Favourite Bags and Backpacks to Get You Ready For Fall!

When it comes to Fall (aka back to school and back to a regular work routine!), small bags that don’t hold at least a computer, charger and a notebook just won’t cut it! And quite frankly, I’m not a gal that really likes purses unless I am heading to an event or a wedding; more often than not, I will just grab my wallet when heading into a store and ditch the purse … maybe that’s why I’m constantly misplacing my wallet and keys … LOL!

So, if you’re looking for the perfect bag for Fall, today I am rounding up all of my favourites, whether you’re headed to a wedding and on the hunt for a cross-body bag or back to school and looking for a backpack, I’ve got you covered!

Jillian Harris Favourite Bags for Fall 2021


My one true love, backpacks! Even before I had Leo and Annie I always gravitated towards backpacks that were capable of carrying all of my things, handsfree! For years, I’ve loved the Fawn Design diaper bags. Not to mention, they worked great as work bags too. I mean, their designs are just so timeless and sleek that you would never know it’s a diaper bag!

Pssstttt … want in on an EXCITING secret? I had the opportunity to collaborate with Fawn Design to create a custom everyday bag that we included in the Fall 2021 Jilly Box and we just so happen to have a limited quantity available now for purchase! Run don’t walk, because these beauties won’t last long! Shop The Pack, here!

Tote Bags

There is also nothing like a big ole’ tote bag, you can throw all of your essentials in and still have room to spare… plus they are totally trending right now, win-win! When it comes to finding the perfect tote bag, there really are so many colours and styles to choose from, whether you are looking for an elevated look or a more casual look, you’ll be sure to find the perfect one!

Belt Bags

I have been gifted a few belt bags over the last year, and truthfully I never thought that I would like them! As I said, I’m not much of a purse gal, so I thought that fanny packs would be off the table too … but boy was I EVER wrong! The other day I thought, what the heck, let’s give one a try and my mind was absolutely blown! One of my current faves is the Ela Handbag x Sasha Exeter collab and it is so reasonably priced too, it can’t get much better than that!

Cross-Body Bags

While I typically don’t reach for cross-body bags, I know many people that absolutely love them! I usually sport a cross-body bag whenever I’m headed to an event or even while we are travelling, and since that hasn’t been happening in the last little while, I haven’t had much use for them! LOL! One of my all-time favourite crossbody bags is this round straw bag, I think it’s perfect for those Spring and Summer months and the perfect accessory to pack for any beach destination.


Last but not least, clutches! Since I’m the kind of gal that likes to grab her wallet and head into the store, I love how easy and effortless clutches are. Clutches are definitely my go-to for weddings, but are quite trendy for everyday use at the moment!

Well, there you have it, a collection of all of my favourite bags for whether you’re heading back to school, the office or to an event! And if you looking for more of my favourite accessories, make sure to check out my shop page here!
