Hey everyone! So I know this post is a little out of season considering it isn't exactly the time of year for back-to-school shopping :P but I just can't resist mentioning this must-have backpack solution! (because I know I'll forget by the time back-to-school season rolls around haha). Anyway, being a freshman, I was quite surprised that nobody seems to use backpacks anymore in High School. Everyone carries these tote bags that fit MAYBE one binder or some just carry a designer shoulder bag. These seem totally impracticle to me, so I chose the backpack route - which induces much taunting, etc. It also detracts from my oh-so-adorable, carefully-selected outfits. I knew there must be a better way. And yes! Vera Bradley has come to the rescue with the most fashionable and FUNCTIONAL backpacks! Not only are they actually usable sizes with many compartments, but they come in all of her awesome prints, too! My favorites are the Mod Floral Pink and the Pinwheel Pink :). Find them at verabradley.com for $92.00!
