the backpack brigade

 Stripes, leather, skinny straps, and colorblock-ing... Backpacks have never been so fashion forward (insert eye roll from my younger-self)! In high school the only backpack deemed "cool enough to carry" was a plain black North Face. Remember this? No? Was this look only cool in Minnesota?? Well, let's just say I am glad that pattern and color have integrated back into the backpack world!

Thankfully in San Francisco with the start-up culture and heavy concentration of techies, backpacks never really went out of style! Now for a few of my favorites in jazzy colors, shapes and styles, the perfect solution for the  grown-up working world (laptops, lunches, and everyday purse necessities not included)...
