An every day struggle for me is whether or not wearing a backpack makes me look like a teenager. I have a 401(k) for god's sake - I want to look like a well-adjusted adult, and at least give the illusion I have my life a little bit together. Oftentimes than not, wearing a backpack will not work in your favor on the way to your office, and it for sure won't bring any outfit together.
But goodness - they're just so practical! I could bore you with my list (seriously, I made a long list earlier) of why backpacks are just the best ever, but I won't. Instead, I did some searching around to find some lovely backpacks that get the job done, all while looking pretty fly.
