You know the phrase too cool for school? I feel like that is the slogan for this season’s on-trend accessory, the backpack. This once-again-cool style of bag has risen back to popularity, and for good reason. It’s so convenient to have a hands-free bag for summer. Feel free to throw your hands up in the air in celebration of backpacks, and don’t worry, all your stuff won’t come exploding out – woohoo!
Other than it being a great accessory and a practical bag, a main reason I wanted to find a backpack was for summer bike rides. Biking is a fast (not to mention cheaper) way to commute around the city, but my crate in the back can only hold so much. Why waste space with a purse, when you can wear a backpack and free up your crate to be filled with important things like treats and flowers!? Makes sense to me. While Mansur Gavriel bags are the creme de la creme, they do cost a pretty penny, and are near impossible to get your hands on (the last restock of backpacks sold out in 6 minutes). So I found a fast fashion alternative from Zara. The pink backpack with the foldover flap is a fraction of the cost, but is still a classic shape and an on-trend hue for spring/summer.
Happy bike riding everyone!
Until next time,
