Backpacking Through Summer


For as long as I can remember, a backpack carried my necessities. Since I outgrew my mother's diaper bag and she dropped me off at pre-k, pronounced preh-keender in espaƱol, all of my items were zipped into a convenient backpack strapped onto both my limbs. And then college came, and I had to wake up every morning figuring out not only what to wear because uniforms were no longer a requirement, but also a large enough bag to carry my essentials because well, Mischa Barton's OC character made us feel like complete tomboy losers if we didn't squeeze our textbooks into a feminine tote. So I ditched the monogrammed L.L. Bean and entered a love affair every young adult begins in college, the perfect designer totes. It wasn't until this May that a precious handmade Italian leather backpack caught my love at Katia Boutique. And so I started my summer fling with Benedetta Bruzziches' sheep leather back pack. This pack has it all. It features adjustable straps, separate compartments, two way zip, and not to mention, endless compliments in public.
