Get car­ried away with Texas de­signer Sarah White’s con­vert­ible back­pack.

The back­pack is all grown up in a beau­ti­fully crafted ver­sion by Texas de­signer Sarah White. White, who got her start with Liz Clai­borne and went on to launch Fos­sil’s leather ac­ces­sories col­lec­tion, in­tro­duced her own epony­mous line of hand­bags, back­packs, and clutches last year. “The most im­por­tant as­pects of a bag are qual­ity, func­tion­al­ity, and ver­sa­til­ity,” says White of her con­vert­ible back­pack, a top-seller at Austin bou­tique Ju­lian Gold.

Color ap­peal: The bag’s rich per­sim­mon color is per­fect for Austin, with its love for all things burnt orange. “I am in­spired by col­ors found in na­ture, and I have a per­sim­mon tree in my yard,” says White. “It is a time­less color and looks great with ev­ery­thing.” Other op­tions in­clude bright cerulean and soft dove gray. Ma­te­rial girl: Wa­ter-re­pel­lant and scratch-re­sis­tant Bella Pelle leather is sourced from a fam­i­ly­owned tan­nery in Biella, Italy. Durable Mi­cro­suede tightly lines the in­te­ri­ors and pro­tects your elec­tron­ics. In­te­rior dia­logue: The bag fits a 13-inch lap­top, iPad, and smart­phone, with ad­di­tional pock­ets for max­i­mum or­ga­ni­za­tion. Carry on: With its ad­justable straps, you can wear the bag over one shoul­der or use top han­dles to carry it like a proper hand­bag when needed. The Sarah White Con­vert­ible Back­pack can be pur­chased at Ju­lian Gold, 1214 W. Sixth

St., 512-473-2493; ju­lian­gold.com and sarah­white.com
