Chic Backpacks for Moms

You searched high and low for the perfect backpack to send your child back to school with, and now it’s your turn. Sometimes regular purses and cross-body bags just don’t cut it for us moms. We need to be prepared and still be able to use our hands. You may have ditched the diaper bags but you are still carrying just as much stuff.

Well, the fashion trend gods have smiled on us moms this season, because chic backpacks are in! You no longer have to look like you're going hiking or that you take night courses at the local university. We are talking high style, mama! Grab those tablets, wipes and sippy cups and hit the streets with these high fashion backpacks.
