Back in the days of nap time and recess, backpacks were a big deal. Usually I purchased one with a Disney princess or Barbie on it - and bonus points if I could find a matching lunchbox. Sometime during middle school I decided to discard my two-shoulder book bag for a cooler, more sophisticated tote bag. Back in my day, there were only two options for backpacks: overly-childish cartoon-themed bags or painstakingly-plain Jansport sacs. 

If I had been offered the cool vintage-inspired and luxe leather backpacks as an adolescent, I don't think I would have ever ditched them. Backpacks are suddenly cool again, and thank goodness, because they are great for your shoulders!

Steve Madden, Tory Burch, and Christopher Kane have all hopped on the backpack trend, ensuring that there is a bag for every style of girl. 

Of course, I just found a great black leather tote bag by Kelsi Dagger at Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, so I'll be sticking to my purses for a little longer, but I do love the resurgence of backpacks lately.

    1. I know right! Leather backpacks are glam and functional, so its the best of both worlds! If only they were a little easier on the wallet...but for now a girl can dream!
