AJ Wears :: A backpack

I've always thought backpacks were the ultimate cool girl bag. I remember seeing Rumi Neely tote around her vintage Chanel backpack like, 6 years ago when I first started reading fashion blogs and thinking I wanted one, regardless of whether they were in style or not.

Well, now they are. Welcome back, 90's. I stood in Marshall's yesterday Snapchatting my friends a photo of this bag and asked, "How do we feel about backpacks?" I got two YES, one EH, and one "If it were the 90's, sure." That was enough for me to pull the trigger on this little dude. I carried it today and I REGRET NOTHING. It's like a purse you don't need hands for, but that holds everything you need! Mine has a DSLR, bag of chips, sunglasses in their giant case, three kinds of lipgloss, wallet, two sets of keys, and a phone in it! Boom. You're gonna want one too. I mean, I'm not gonna wear it every day, but I'm already thinking of all of the situations where a large hands-free bag will come in handy. Amusement parks! Travel! Day trips! Concerts! Cool and comfort is definitely something I can get behind.
