Backpacks. I am surrounded by them everyday. From Pokemon to bright pink zig-zags, Disney princesses, surf and skate brands, I always assumed they were designed with students in mind or the hard core back trail hiker. However, my preconceived notions quickly faded when I met a very stylish backpack.
On a recent trip to Denver, I was reintroduced to the good old familiar backpack in a brand new way. My friend’s husband bought a stylish backpack for her to carry around all the necessities for her two month old and two year old. I had the “opportunity” to wear this stylish backpack around the streets of Denver and fell in love.
It was easy to carry, comfortable and convenient. I didn’t have to worry about constantly switching arms to alleviate the weight like I do when carrying a purse, or try to balance a clutch under my armpit when browsing a store. My two hands were fully functional. I was able to pick up clothing while holding a toddler’s hand and still carry a thermos of coffee. Instantly, I fell in love with the stylish backpack and saw its potential in a whole new light. I told my friend right then and there that I needed this backpack stat and she was delighted to take me to Topo Designs to find my very own.
Topo Designs has a great variety of styles and colors to meet everyone’s needs. They design backpacks for every occasion. Backpacks that double as briefcases for the working person, backpacks for trips, backpacks with laptop sleeves, the list goes on and on. As a teacher, I need a backpack that has a place for my laptop, a spot for my water bottle and coffee thermos, a pocket to carry snacks and enough space to hold my teacher books as well as papers. I tried on several different styles, and decided on this green and blue backpack. I love the fun color of this one as well as the functionality.
This backpack is my new best friend and has taken the place of my purse. I travel with it, take it shopping, and wear it everyday to school. I don’t know why it took me so long to rediscover how amazing a backpack really is. They are now quite fashionable and I see more and more adults wearing them. They are better for your back and look really cute paired with a tee shirt and jeans. Also, it makes me feel more youthful!
