Totes or Backpacks

TOTES OR BACKPACKS
In the past few years it seems when you’re in school you are either a tote gal or a backpack gal. When I was in school I was always sporting my yellow North Face backpack with a pink bow so I could spot it easily and well… I just like bows; now that I am out of school and don’t have to carry around textbooks I have transitioned over to a tote when I need to take my computer, notebook, planner, etc with me. In college totes were far more popular than the backpack, I even remember one time a girl I had a class with made a snarky comment about the fact that I still used a backpack, ummm… hello, when do backpacks ever go out of style in an academic setting – people who carry backpacks in school can be stylish too! Whether you’re a backpack person or a tote person here are some great options for this coming fall.

  3. I always used a backpack until I got to college and decided I was too cool for a backpack and started using a chic tote. I don't think it lasted too long after I realized carrying all of my books around in a tote was kind of annoying and that a backpack was way more conventional. hah.

    Love all of these though!

    1. I know what you mean I was too lazy to be a tote person, I didn't want to go back to my dorm all the time to change out my books so I just went with the backpack!

  5. I used the same Longchamp throughout college and loved it! It's a little beaten-up now, but I can't part with it, since it was by my side for 4 years haha!

    1. That's a smart idea to use a backpack for your carryon, I will have to keep that in mind next time I travel!
