Since leaving school I’ve never been one to pull off a good backpack/rucksack. They just never seemed to go with anything I was wearing and made me feel sporty (which I’m not) or childish (so silly).
This all changed when I got this great Fjällräven backpack. I had been eyeing one out for years and, finally, this summer I grabbed one from the sales. It’s such a good size, not too small but equally not too big, making it a perfect day bag! Somehow it doesn’t make me feel like I’m trying to be something I’m not and looks good even when wearing a dress and little pumps. AND it’s so practical (something I’m not used to with my accessories!)
I never knew this prior to purchase, but these Fjällräven bags come with a loyal following – I’ve had many nice little chats with strangers who share this love for these funny square bags.
With my new found backpack love, my eyes have been opened to a whole new world of cool rucksacks. Here’s a few of my faves from Ally Capellino.
A good backpack is a great excuse to have lots of fun day trips this Spring!
