So, I’m a little late to the game on this one, guys. This backpack has a crazy cult-following among fashion bloggers, and I finally decided to take the gamble and buy one for myself! I have found that I am not a typical fashion blogger in that I don’t have an unlimited budget (who can afford a $1200 bag??) or honestly, fancy places to wear exciting or impractical outfits. But I am a mom, and I like style and fun outfits, even if my days look different than they did when I was in college. So, I hope that I can share with other moms or women who don’t have bottomless bank accounts or unrealistic travel-filled lives that fashion can be everyday and still lots of fun. Let’s get back to the goods, though…
I bought this backpack one week ago, and have worn it daily. It fits all the things, guys. And as a busy mom and small business owner, I have a lot to tote around. I have used it for ballet slippers for my gals, extra outfits and pull ups for Ensley, and it’s always filled with snacks. It also fits my iPad, and my iPhone fits into the back mini zipper pocket perfectly. I stow my keys in one side of the bag and the other size holds all our vitamins/tylenol for the occasional headache, and I always have my small wallet with me, obviously. The leather is SO SOFT, and its incredibly comfortable with adjustable straps, which means it works for even petite girls like me. The gold hardware is super pretty and the overall look is really timeless. I’ve worn it with tees and jeans, and my bomber jacket and sneakers. This look is what I wore to church today, and believe it or not, it was pouring snow down just a few hours before we snapped these! Oregon weather is nuts, which brings me to the final reason I love this backpack: the leather has held up against lots of rain this week, and I’ve found that it doesn’t show spots when it gets wet.
