I’m no longer in school but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a good backpack! Unfortunately, when I was in school I didn’t know that I could have a functional AND stylish backpack. I sported a Jansport from Middle School to College! When I was in Grad School I switched to a large tote bag but carrying that around with all my stuff on one shoulder was kind of painful. It wasn’t until I saw the Everlane backpacks that I realized I could still carry one around without looking like I was back in High School.

Even though I don’t use my backpack for school I still use it as carry-on luggage. I love to have my hands free while traveling so a backpack works really well. I also used to as a work bag for when I taught Pre-School. This bag holds a ton of stuff and holds up really well. I’ve had mine for over a year and I’ve used it a lot.

This particular style is still available in olive and Everlane has a lot of options in different colors and sizes!

  1. I personally think that backpacks in the midwest aren’t quite cool enough because we have a lot of residual leftovers from people who are still wearing their 80’s ones, but I LOVE the vibe of them on the west coast on people like you. It looks super chic!

  2. So funny I am actually wearing a backpack to work today. They are so convenient when taking the train and you need both hands to old on to the handle bars so you don’t go flying around in rush hour traffic. I love all the ones you picked

  3. I love that backpacks are getting little face lift! This one is so cute and of course, practical! I used a large tote bag in high school, but once I started nursing school…I carried a tote bag AND a backpack!

  4. Love it! I just rediscovered the convenience of a backpack when I have to haul all of my kids’ crap everywhere I go! I just picked up a super cute faux leather one on clearance from Target and it seriously saved my life this summer when I took the kids to the county fair without my husband and his extra pair of hands! Very cute look and adorable new backpack!

    I would love for you to come join my weekly link up On the Edge of the Week. It goes live every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. EST and stays open for a week. I hope to see you there! Have a fabulous day!


  5. I’m really loving that backpacks are back again! They are so practical and becoming more and more stylish! I love the grey color of your backpacks, it works with so many outfits!
