After lugging around my giant tote bags for years, I finally decided to invest in a small backpack as an alternative. I originally just wanted one to carry around during SXSW, but I continue to wear it everyday with no issues! I bought the striped backpack you see above from Target except in the all-black color, and it has worked out great (I loved it so much I even left a review, haha)! Now I see trendy backpacks popping up all over the place, and I'm tempted to buy more! I especially love the ones with unique shapes or funky prints. What about you, have you hopped on the backpack bandwagon yet?
