Back To School: All Grown Up

It’s your last week to lounge around the house all day catching up on all the Scandal episodes you missed. School is back in session. I kind of miss the back to school jitters. I don’t know why, but I could never sleep the night before the first day of school. It might have been because I was going over what new outfit to wear or my fresh new backpack filled with new school supplies. It’s an exciting time of year if you’re leaving home for the first time for college. It’s also super scary for those who are living away from home for the first time. One things for sure, the backpack game keeps on improving. Luckily, there is so much to choose from, you won’t have any trouble if you are feeling a little down about getting back into the school swing of things.

For some, a simple backpack will do. You are more into functionality and durability. Then there’s the other group, the fashion conscious, who don’t think style should suffer in the name of heavy text books, notepads and laptops. Which ever category you fall into, I think you should look your best. Carry something stylish, of course, but a backpack that with will last for the entire school year. Some bags are built for lighter days (you know when you just have one class that day) and others will be built for the long haul ( 3 classes in one day, a heavy text book and gym clothes).


Below are a few of my top choices:


Bentley Black Backpack
Bentley Black Leather Backpack with Zip-split-strap – $44.99

I would consider the above bag for lighter school days. Maybe you have one class and have to head off to work or out with friends. It’s stylish, made well and affordable.

Rebecca Minkoff ‘Julian’ Sport Backpack – $269.75 

Campus worthy backpack. It’s durable, which means long-lasting wear. It’s a traditional backpack styled with a modern edge.

Baggu Canvas Backpack – Brown – $52.57 

Made with recycled cotton, this bag is strong and made for those long school days when you have to pack your whole day in a bag. It’s pretty fancy if you ask me!.

Diesel Aviator Backpack – $484.16 

This is a men’s bag, but I think it’s pretty unisex. This is your perfect year round school and travel bag. If you travel home on the weekends you will love this bag. It will also last you a few years since it’s made with treated canvas and leather. There’s space to secure your computer as well.

Another great bonus: You can use all of the bags above as a travel bag as well. So they are multi-use, therefore you get you moneys worth.
