I might no longer be a student, but I still love back to school shopping!

I used to love back to school shopping. There was something about buying new notebooks, bag, and supplies that seemed like a fresh start. Like the possibilities were limitless with the school year. Now in reality, those notebooks would get lost, I’d forget to use my agenda, and those 20 pens I originally had were gone in a week…. But the backpack I bought was the key to keeping some sort of organization. (well at least the appearance of organization) 

Now there was a point where I did everything possible to not use a backpack for school. Years of using small purses or oversized bags to replace it, which in turn couldn’t hold everything and left my back aching by the end of the day. But, I suffered to look good, and to be “fashionable”.

This post is dedicated to the classic backpack, but the options I’m sharing with you all today are anything but basic. Backpacks have had a transformation over the last few years that have left them appearing more and more luxurious like your everyday handbag. Now, I’ve found a few options in every price range, so get your wallets ready because I can bet you’ll be checking out these items by the end of this post!

The first selection of bags are from your average clothing stores. I love looking online at shops like ASOS, H&M, Nasty Gal, etc. and seeing multiple options for backpacks. For once we can find backpacks that are cute and appealing without breaking the bank in the process.  Here are my top picks that offer you both fashion & functionality. One of the options specifically, is a baby pink Herschel backpack. The charming colour with gold accents is modern while the nylon material is ideal for all weather conditions and for those of you who have more than just a laptop to carry.

The next set of bags are both from a brand that I absolutely love. Matt & Nat are a company from Montreal Canada who has embraced clean minimalistic designs made out of quality fabrics. What drew me to the brand was the unique shapes and overall appearance that has made Matt & Nat a standout in comparison to other brands. They stay true to their aesthetic season after season, while being on trend with the material and colours they use to create their collections. One aspect that I especially love about the company is that they don’t use any animal based materials to create their bags. Yes they are more expensive than the last set of bags, but you are paying not just for quality but a brand that stands for something positive.

And finally, a fashion post would not be complete without discussing luxury bags. Yes backpacks can be luxurious, and like I mentioned before, are becoming a popular options even for the fashionistas of the world. I wanted to include these to show just how glamorous backpacks can be. No longer do we have to use our actual handbags to carry around school supplies and textbooks! Of the few options, I have to give special attention to this Chloe backpack. The Faye Backpack includes many of the quintessential features that are known to the brand. Similar to their handbags, you'll find the ring loop and chain as well as the mixed textures of leather and suede used to create the bohemian aesthetic that is oh so Chloe. While maintaining its luxurious appearance, the functionality is there thanks to the shape of the bag that will still give you plenty of room to carry all of your belongings.
