Backpacks are trending now. They are no longer the oversized bags you carried around on school campus. With their modern design and smaller sizes, you can now incorporate these bags into your everyday style. They store all of your many essentials and make the perfect travel bags. I carry a tote bag almost every day and didn’t feel I would like this style. But, to my surprise, I love my new backpack! I attend a lot of events in Atlanta and I always need my camera, iPad and other essentials. I carry my backpack as a purse and unlike my tote, it doesn’t weigh my shoulders down. The hands-free design makes it easy for me to work the room while taking pictures and capturing videos. Because I am so used to an open tote, the only downside was remembering to fasten my bag 😄. If you are a mother with small kids, planning to attend spring festivals or just want to refresh your style, try a backpack!
