I’ve really been wanting to embrace the backpack trend because it seems so practical. I love my crossbody/shoulder bags but I always find myself adjusting them to keep them out of the way. Sadly, I could never find a backpack that seemed to fit my style.
That was until I came across this stylish leather backpack from Radley London.
It’s seriously the perfect size – not too big, not too small. And I love that it’s slim and streamlined. It doesn’t feel bulky like most of the backpacks I’ve come across. And even though it’s slim, it still has a enough space for all the essentials, including my Radley London wallet!
Last spring I did a review of a Radley London wallet, and I’m happy to report that I’ve been using it all year and still love it! It makes me smile every time I open it and see the fun combination of colors. That’s why I was so excited to get a chance to feature this backpack. If you’ll notice in the pictures above, the word “smile” is written on the inside when you open the flap! It’s details like this that make Radley London bags special.
I decided to pair this minimalist style leather backpack bag with my favorite minimalist brand: Everlane. I recently picked up this striped linen shirt and I can already tell it will be the perfect shirt for summer. It’s 100% linen which means it’s light and breathable. And the light pink stripes give this basic linen shirt a fun update. With the addition of my straight leg jeans and comfortable street sandals, I’ve got the perfect “Mom” outfit. It’s comfy and practical, but still chic!

Here’s a look from last year around this time. This is one of my favorite maternity looks and it’s actually making me miss my bump…just a little. It’s actually a non-maternity dress from the Who What Wear Collection at Target.
Our picks from last week’s link up are Christine from Bon Chic Style and Cheryl from Cheryl Shops!
Adri and I would love for you to link up your fashion posts for a chance to be featured next week!

I’ve never owed a backpack, but my daughter has had lots. I’m not sure if I’d ever use one, but yours looks tempting! Thanks for hosting the #linkup Jacqui Mummabstylish

Such a beautiful backpack and love it’s color – so beautiful! A backpack is one of the best bags in my opinion because it’s so easy to use and if you need your hands free, it’s a great option!
