One Backpack, Three Ways

 

 

A while ago I introduced you all to this gorgeous Loxley handbag, and ever since then it has been a repeat feature in my outfits. So much so, I thought I would share three ways I have been styling it. Before I owned a backpack, I would never have thought of them to be particularly versatile items, more like something I just used day to day practicality. So it's fair to say I have been shocked at just how versatile they are! 

Without further rambling, here are three ways I have been wearing my backpack! First up, we have an evening look. Now I am sure we have all had the problem of desperately squeezing far too much in a small clutch bag for an evening out (because I need to take my eyeliner, powder, lipstick, blusher, hairspray, giant wallet, etc etc). I am now waving goodbye to this problem, and taking my whole make up bag out with me if I feel like it! The key to finding a backpack that works for evening is making sure it's a chic one. This one isn't too bulky, keeping it firmly in the realm of stylish backpacks!

Next up we have a look that is most representative of me on most days. When I really do seem to carry everything I own along with me! This bag perfectly fits my laptop (and about 1038390 notebooks, charging cables, old receipts) so is great for working days where I hop from café to café. It feels super handy having both hands free while walking too so I can be even more of the annoying person that texts while walking in a slow and wiggly line. Yep, that's me.

And finally we have another day to day look, this time a little more fancy. This is my kind of day time look for days out shopping, or just generally any day out that warrants a slightly smarter outfit. The way I have been wearing my Loxley backpack the most is on one shoulder, which I feel sure is the coolest way (if I ever had a backpack at school, this would my method of wearing it) - this should definitely get me cool points.
