Casual Friday: Exotic Backpacks

Casual Friday

Okay, pricey exotic backpacks aren’t exactly casual, but they’re the perfect middle ground for Snobs who want to get the cool girl look without dressing like an actual schoolgirl. I saw a beautiful woman toting this exact Nancy Gonzalez (on NET-A-PORTER for $3,850) the other day (her croc was in gray, but I can’t resist featuring this bright cobalt!). And no, she wasn’t in her teens or even within childbearing age. She was at least 65 and rocked this backpack like nobody’s business! When I complimented her, she didn’t miss a beat – “Backpacks are so easy. My back pain is manageable because I carry it on both shoulders, and it’s balanced. Not to mention, it leaves my hands free when I’m shopping.” Um, did I just meet the future me?? I want to be that cool grandma with boyfriend jeans and a backpack, and from the looks of it lately, there will be no shortage of exotic options…

    I have the Nancy Gonzalez backpack in black. I have a 14 month old so being hands free but chic is essential!
