the search for backpack is ON (again)...

backpacks make me think of schooldays. but in not a very trendy kinda way. earlier this year, i decided that a backpack was a great idea while zipping around on the bicycle. but had so much trouble finding a backpack that isn't leather (for fear of rain/spillage), relatively light and chic, i threw in a towel...

now im back again! this time inspired by my recent day out in town.
i was holding up traffic juggling a flopsy baby in one arm, a tote on my shoulder (which kept slipping off thanks to my non-existent shoulder blades!), a stroller in the other hand, a few random bits and pieces and oh! my bubble tea in the other hand.. wait did we run out of hands already?

everyone was probably thinking "get that lady a backpack!" either that or 
"she really shouldn't have commited to the bubble tea..." and because the latter is not an option, im back to the drawing board.

with a lack of new bag-spiration, i thought maybe i could go with something simple! 


the husband would vote for black but i was thinking this blue or pink? 
wadaya think?

p.s. i welcome any backpack suggestions!

  1. I think a backpack would be cute, functional and, yes, a little schoolish. But that's not a bad thing. Nerdy chic is very 'in' these days. I'll keep my eyes open and send you any cool backpack ideas I find. :)

  3. I don't have recs for a backpack but see if you can get a cup holder for your stroller. It's so convenient for times when you have a drink in your hand. When you don't you can throw stuff like your phone in there too.

  4. Backpacks are practical esp if you're handling the little one alone.. keeps your hands free...

    there is a website that kinda does comparisons for backpack ideas.. maybe you can look thru it and see if anything jumps out at you? =) they even have ideas if mom and dad are going to be "sharing" that backpack! =)

  6. I say blue ! fjallraven kanken backpacks - they come in such a fantastic range of colors I couldn't decide when I got mine. no regrets, it's definitely a brilliant backpack.

  7. How about a crossbody sling? They leave your hands free too, and you don't have to take the whole thing off to rummage through it. I bike with one too.

    (And congrats on Blake's first month!)
