I thought I was done with backpacks when I graduated from college and declined Grad School. Oh how happy I was to just be able to carry a purse around! No more purse+ backpack or backpack acting as a purse. Well, purse morphed into diaper bag/giant purse and then along came three kids. And I'm back to a backpack. And I'm in love.

To be fair Soren has tried to get me to go with the backpack model for years. He hates carrying around purses/diaper bags that slip off of his shoulder. And I hate wearing gear (ie: mountain man packs) to go grocery shopping. We finally compromised when I found a cute backpack and, really, life is so much better. If you bump into me IRL you'll likely find a giant baby strapped to my front side and a backpack on the back- they balance me out- and act as a timer while I'm shopping. As soon as I'm too tired to walk one more step, the shopping trip is done. 

So while I wish I looked this cute in college, this look is totally the mom in me everyday. And speaking of the mom in me, you'll notice I'm wearing this Mommy Necklace from Rafia Jewelry. They were so sweet to send it to me on the terms that moms should be celebrated everyday, not just on Mother's Day. AMEN. Wouldn't this make a great gift???

Alright so, thoughts on the backpack? When did you last wear one?

  8. This past year I've been really getting into backpacks too- they're just sooo much easier to carry around rather than a big ol purse. And the one you have looks so pretty, it really jazzes up the outfit!
