Raise your hand if you’re constantly losing something. That’s why I’ve given up on purses, because I can’t go somewhere without leaving that behind too. No joke, I left my purse with my laptop, wallet, and everything else in a bush. Ross & I were doing a photoshoot, I needed it out of the way off the sidewalk so I promptly moved it. Well, we drove home and I didn’t realize until I needed my laptop my purse was nowhere to be scene. Luckily it was downtown Franklin, and by the time I drove back to go search the bushes, a kind soul had already Facebook messaged me saying they found my bag. At the time, I still had a Texas ID, which was bit confusing. I pulled up to the bush as a frazzled mess, with tears running down my cheeks and the kind couple that found my purse waiting for me. I thanked them profusely while they laughed and asked how my purse wound up in a bush. LOL. Side story over.
ANYWAY, I’m now a big fan of the backpack purse. I feel like I can’t lose it when it’s constantly on my body! Not only do I love the functionality, the styles of a backpack have come a long way! I definitely recommend a leather or faux leather to appear more “purse like” instantly. A bonus is getting a cool texture, shape or design to make more of a fashion statement than I’m a little girl going to school statement. The Rebecca Minkoff Mini Julian will forever be my favorite! She’s constantly coming out with new colors – but I have ZERO complaints about grey because it works in all seasons – summer and winter! Note I said mini – the smaller sized backpacks also help keep the bulk down to make the backpack purse more of a dainty accessory.
