Are you a backpack lover like me? Backpacks are pretty awesome and they are totally having a moment in fashion right now. Lately I’ve found some super cute and stylish ones. I love carrying backpacks because they are super functional and help me carry everything I need without weighing down my shoulder like with a large purse. Also, do you struggle finding things inside a large purse like me? I can’t tell you how many times it’s taken me, what felt like an eternity, to find my keys in my large purses. Lol!
Backpacks keep me organized when I’m on the go. And I have a nice collection of them so that I can easily coordinate them with my outfits. I’ve learned to pack extremely light and to only carry the essentials. Lugging around a heavy backpack all day is no fun. Here’s a rundown of what I’m currently carrying inside my backpack:
I’m always working on the go, so my laptop is always in my backpack. I don’t think I could function without my headphones. They help me zone out while I sip on coffee and take advantage of the free WiFi at my local coffee shops. I love the bright orange color too.
A Cosmetic Case is a Must
I carry a cosmetic case to help keep small and important items like my keys, wallet and cell phone in one place. I also keep in it all the items I use the most like hand cream, lip balk, my favorite red lip stick and phone charger.
I always carry either a light sweater or jean shirt inside my backpack just in case it’s too chilly on the subway or in the coffee shop where I’m hanging out in for the day.
