Stylish Backpacks For Back To School (Or Yourself!)

I just love a good backpack. They’re perfect for toting school supplies, text books, wallets, lip glosses… even diapers! (The yellow Fjallraven above has been our go-to diaper bag since Huck turned one last fall.) In fact, I’ve seen backpacks rising the ranks of the all-the-cool-girls-have-one accessories here in the city. We’re not relegated to Jansports or those giant monogrammed L.L.Bean bags anymore. There is a whole world of insanely chic backpacks! Here, let me show you!

One trick for keeping your backpacks nice and clean as the day you brought them home: double bag any food item, make up, or pen pencil or crayon, in a Ziploc bag to keep from messes from spreading.
