Back to School: Backpacks and Bags

One of the things I felt I always stood out with in college was that I absolutely never utilized a backpack. No matter how many heavy books or my laptop I was lugging around, I could always be found with my go-to trusty tote.

Not much has changed in this area, and I still use my tote every day for work, but I do regret not giving my shoulders and back muscles a lighter load to carry when I was walking around campus…and if I had taken the time to explore backpack options that were cute and functional, it might have been a different story!

With August officially upon us, many of you are heading back to school or even grad school in these next few weeks, so I wanted to gather up all of the best backpack and bag options – ranging from more stylish to more functional, and everything in between!

All you have to do is click on the image of an item to shop it!

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/widget.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof(window.__moneyspot) === ‘object’) {if(document.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__moneyspot.init();}}}(document, ‘script’, ‘moneyspot-script’);

If, like me, you’re a bigger fan of a large tote option that will still provide style while simultaneously hold together everything you need to carry with you, I found some really incredible options there, too!

    I travel A TON for work and have been trying to figure out if I'm ready to give up my cute tote bag and switch to a backpack. These cute backpacks have me feeling a little better about my eventual transition!
