I like the idea of a backpack a lot—they seem like the choice of smart, cool women who have more important things on their minds than what bag to wear. And if you’re shlepping a lot around, they’re so much more comfortable than a big, heavy purse. I think I will go crazy if I try to write my entire book in my apartment so I’ve been scouting out other places that I can work, and thinking about bags I can carry my computer in too, and a backpack just seems to make a lot of sense.
There is something quite appealing about a super-basic, no-frills nylon version.
But this buttery leather pouch-shaped option is quite nice too.
Extremely minimal and super-chic.
A gorgeous, splurgetsatic blue suede choice from Mansur Gavriel.
This one kind of looks like the one from Mansur, but it’s super-cheap.
And I like that this looks like a bucket bag.
