Backpacks: High street vs. designer

Back in the summer of 2012 (doesn’t that feel like a lifetime ago!) I wrote a piece on the best backpacks on the high street. The geek chic trend still isn’t going anywhere and two years on backpacks are still big news. This is of course great news for busy mums with all we have to carry around.

    I am completely obsessed with leather backpacks! Love the 3.1 Phillip Lim style and have my eye on the infamous Whistles backpacks too…

    This is the best review of backpacks I have seen, they are all gorgeous and I honestly can say I really didn’t chose bargain bags correctly.
