Backpacks in Blue

Backpacks are currently on a comeback, unfortunately a little late for me. All throughout my university degree I had a one shoulder leather satchel to carry my laptop and books, refusing to give into the dreaded backpack. Often wishing that I could switch it up for a comfortable backpack. Now, almost five years later, there are an abundance of cute backpacks out there.  Luckily for me, backpacks are no longer for school going kids but make a practical and cool accessory for any occasion. And I for one am going to get in on this little trend! Here are some of my top picks for backpacks this season...

Since it's debut in 1978, the Fjallraven has kept generations of Swedes stylishly equipped for school. Now hitting the streets around the world, the classic Fjallraven design, which is available in a variety of colors, is the perfect bag any occasion.

Shabd x Baggu

Brooklyn-based designer Shabd Simon-Alexander's who has been instrumental in brining back tie-dyes has teamed up with CH favorite Baggu, creating a trendy and  affordable line of totes and backpacks in a variety of colors.

Handmade in Germany, this mini canoe Seil Marschall backpack would be great to have for a day trip or your daily commute to work!! Love it  



  1. Great picks Karen. I'm on the fence about the baggu, just don't know which one I want yet :)
    I had to buy a mini Jansport and I'm thinking about studding it up.It's a great alternative to any outfit besides the satchel.
