Cherry top

Chevron sweater / Faux leather backpack from Target / Beige skirt from TJ Maxx / Red beanie from Charlotte Russe

I've had the same standard black Jansport backpack since Gr.10. Yeah, you know the one. It got me through high school, university, and college. That's 8 years of schooling with the same backpack. I remember once in university, I ran into a friend on campus at the library. He looked at my backpack and said, "Huh. I didn't think you were a backpack kind of a person. I thought you use like, a big purse to hold stuff." I kind of took offense to that. Sure, I might be a fashion person, but I value my education and posture more than I value an oversized tote. I would know because I tried the whole oversized tote bag thing, but it was no where near as functional as a backpack. 

It's a bit ironic that within the first few months of officially being done with school, I got a new backpack. It definitely doesn't hold as much as my good ol' trusty one, but it does hurt my shoulders less than a tote. Is an adult backpack an oxymoron? Because I'm liking this fashion and function thing.

  1. llllloove love your sweater so much <3
    I agree with you. nothing as fungtional as backpack. But since I have to bring a lot thick books to campus, I started to use handbag instead or my back will hurt so much after I went home

  11. I personally really love this outfit post! AND, I am going on 27 years old, and I carry/wear a backpack instead of a purse for everyday. I see nothing wrong with it. I think it adds personality and it's way more practical than a purse I could carry. I mean, I switch it up and use a purse for different outings or occasions, but everyday, you can bet I have my backpack. (It's the navy one with gold stars from The Heirs show.)

  15. This is my kind of outfit! Everything about this I would wear in a heartbeat. And I totally got you...Carrying around a tote full of books is just a huge pain. I would rather carry around a bag like yours or I have a Jansport that has a fun floral design on it for my school books.

  20. I always have to carry so many stuff when I go to the university, so I am definitely thinking of buying a backpack, because carrying an oversized tote looks cool, but weighs so much and is so heavy!
    This outfit is so chic and stylish- every piece just goes so well together! :)

  22. Backpacks are certainly more functional than totes but I am definitely more of tote person - the older I get, the less stuff I need to carry. That said it's nice that backpacks are becoming stylish - my back could definitely use the help in the posture department. And what an off-putting comment on your classmate's part! Who says you can't be both clever and fashionable?
    LOVE your backpack - it's so chic and stylish! Love the beanie and the jumper as well. Very cute look!

  32. Haha I should be more like you and start wearing the backpacks I got recently to school-- I've been wearing purses to school ever since I start university (even though I was supposed to graduate two years ago and I stayed on longer to do another minor)! I love this backpack, it's pretty funny that you got one when you were already done with school but they can be used for so much more than just academics! Also, adore your neutral skirt and that chevron sweater :)
