fall into: backpacks.

there is no doubt that fall is on the wall. unfortunately, there is no way to stop it, so i decided to just embrace it and get excited. i am going to ease in slowly and start with a few fall trends that will help get ready for back to school and back to real life.

no matter if you are lugging books or your weekend gear, a backpack is a cool way to transport your good again. i found a handful of ones that won't make you feel like you are back in middle school. these ones are a bit more mature and hip.

the leather bag:

clava 3000 turnlock backpack
$182.99 from wayfair.com

cairo distressed backpack
$498 at free people
(on the dream list)

the eco-friendly bag:

the super hip:

this is just a very small roundup of the many new styles of backpacks out there for fall. don't forget to check out thrift stores and goodwill for backpacks, since it is obvious that styles always come back. buy a cheap plain bag and diy a fabulous new one. all you ever really need is some studs, lace, patches, fabric/spray paint and you are good to go.


  1. love love your blog! so cute! follow back <3

    1. thank you! i will have to check it out!

  2. I love the ones with stripes (especially the blue and white stripes), but I think my favorite is the classic L.L. Bean backpack. I have one I bought ten years ago and it still looks like new, so for reliability I'll go with those every time.

    1. that is so true. i have ll bean backpacks that are well over 10 years old. and i love the stripes ones too. i am a such for most anything with stripes!
