Save vs. Splurge: Back Packs

Save Vs. Splurge: Back Packs- Bags can always be considered an investment staple or just a quick inexpensive accessory to a look! Which do you prefer?!

I often get asked where I got my back pack wherever I go! I recently went on a trip to Mexico and while there, a friend of mine said “I need a bag just like that one!” Sadly, I had gotten this backpack quite some time ago and it is no longer available! I decided to do a post on some of my favorite back packs.  Some are a bit pricier than others, but bags can always be considered investment pieces! I can’t tell you the last time I actually carried a purse around! I absolutely love the ease of the back pack! Plus its cute! Hopefully this little round up gives you a little inspiration in the back pack department! If you don’t already have one, then you should get one, because… why not?! LOL! Ps. # 6 in the first collage is a splurge item! Sorry about that! A very happy Monday to you! Have an amazing week and thank you as always for stopping by the blog!!

    So many great picks! I always love splurge or steals because the inexpensive normally look just as good, if no better than the expensive!

    I’m not usually a big pink girl, but I really like how ladylike and classic both light pink backpacks are. These would be great for commuting in the city.

    I wear backpacks quite a bit because I commute to work via rail. It just makes things easier for me. Unfortunately, my darling backpack has reached the end of its time and I need more. I’ve got my eyes on a pink or gold one.

    A classic black or tan backpack is such an essential! I wear one to work everyday and to the gym and find it so helpful – I’d much prefer wearing one rather than toting around an oversized, heavy bag!
