Backpacks ~ The Hottest Trend in Bags

Backpacks are the hottest trend in bags right now.  Last year it was all about the crossbody, they are still in and will never go out, but this season backpacks are everywhere, in every price point and from just about every designer.  I'll have to admit, I was not a fan at first.  Vera Bradley sent me this quilted beauty for Mother's Day and I didn't carry it for at least a month.  I mean, I'm 48, not a college kid and I'm such a traditional bag style girl I just couldn't see myself toting a backpack but... once I gave it a try I was HOOKED!  It's been my go-to bag this summer and I already have this one ready for fall.  What do I love about backpacks?  The ease, the room, and of course, being on trend!  I wish they had been popular when my kids were little because they are the ultimate "busy mom on the go bag"!  So much more stylish than a diaper bag or oversized tote!

The rest of this outfit will be on the blog soon but I wanted to share the backpack now because if you are anything like me, the first thing I do when a new season is about to start is get a new bag and I didn't want you to miss out! ;-)

Here are a several more great backpacks at all price points and in different colors and materials.  Happy Fall-Bag-Shopping!!

What a cute pack! And thank you. I'm in the market for a bag of sorts and now I'm thinking backpack.
