    I’m adoring the crochet outfit and how you’ve paired it with this backpack. I’ve seen them everywhere and have been thinking of buying one. I may have to now.

I think the title of this post speaks for itself. I want to talk a little about backpacks today!

Backpacks have come succchhhh a long way. Who knew that it would be cool to actually wear a backpack as a purse?

Growing up, backpacks joggled between ‘cool’ and ‘uncool’ numerous times. If you had a backpack at school one year you could be in the ‘cool’ group, but try wearing one the next year and you immediately become ‘uncool’. It was exhausting to keep up with.

Had I known about backpacks (like this one from Henri Bendel backpack) growing up, I surely would have been the coolest in my class! It doesn’t even matter that books can’t fit into it!

This Henri Bendel backpack could have also been work with some sneakers and a baseball cap for a more casual look. The possibilities are seriously endless!

Going to keep this short and sweet today. If you have seen my Instagram stories, you know I have been running around like a crazy person lately.

Tomorrow I have another 5:30am wakeup call so that I can bring my sis some breakfast at the hospital!! Update: her foster daughter (10 months old) had surgery and had a g-tube implanted. My brother-in-law is out of town, so I am trying to visit them when I can (they are discharged at 4 tomorrow)! Please pray for both of them!

Love you guys! xoxo Amanda
