I would first of all like to apologize for my horrendous lack of posts recently, however life has really gotten in the way of this month and I have had next to no time to dedicate to my precious little blog. I've been up to my neck in coursework, homework, GCSE English writing and various other time consuming activities. Alas, year 10 has finally come to an end and the summer holidays are finally here (horray!!) which means I will be able to dedicate ALOT more time to my blog. I have a good lot of things to look forward to (including a guest post from Holly)!
Over the past month or so, I've been seeing lots of people bringing back the slouchy backpack trend which was really big a couple of years ago. I'm not entirely sure that i really like slouchy backpacks as i can feel all of the contents banging against my back as i walk and they do tend to look a bit odd with miss-shapen lumps and bumps sometimes depending on what you put in them. However, backpacks are really quite handy and when I saw this little backpack in the asos sale I decided that I absolutely adored it and that I needed to own it immediately. I can safely say that i do not regret my decision as i can fit everything i need in it, both my hands are free, its structured so you don't get the awkward lumps and bumps, and i love its sleek and simple design.
A couple of things I will say is that the material does feel slightly cheap considering its price, but it is very sturdy. Like most backpacks, it is extremely impractical when it comes to shopping or getting something out/putting something away in a hurry which can be slightly annoying, but I'm willing to deal with it haha.
I'm still not sure how i feel about the whole backpack trend, I think it depends on the backpack to me, I'm definitely leaning towards the more structured vintagey looking styles at the moment and I've definitely got my eye on this one!
