If you follow me on IG (@shanachristine), you’ve already seen this rainbow nonsense cruising down the street.
I LOVE EET.
I suspect that it’s the closest thing this girl will ever get to an ‘it’ bag. I find that half the time I just stuff my pockets full, and the other half I use a backpack.
You know what we say, here at TME headquarters: Once you go backpack, you’ll never go back!
Just kidding. Nobody actually says that.
Even if it’s true.
Our love of backpacks does run really deep on the TME team (like really, really deep), so we decided to round up the best backpacks for Spring and Summer, as well as best backpacks for travel. But before we get down to business, a few notes:
- We are entering the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack into the TME Hall of Fame. Each one of us has this bag in some color, and it is, without a doubt, the best backpack we’ve had the pleasure of wearing. It’s comfortable, lightweight, yet looks amazing on your back whether empty or stuffed. I get countless reader emails that all say the same thing: “I LOVE my Julian backpack so much I can’t find another as good. Any other options?” Nope. Not really. Although I did give it the ‘ol collage try below.
- Many of the links below take you to a new retailer we’ve never featured before, Shop Spring. I met with these guys last weekend, and they’re totally legit. It’s basically one-cart shopping for a bunch of our favorite retailers, in an online space that’s fun to browse. I especially like that they have a good selection of smaller brands I had never heard of before (prepare to be blown away by Cote&Ciel, for example). I’m obsessed.
Long live hands-free!
