Crazy about prints! Asos Aztec backpack vs. Zumiez Baja Backpacks
It's that time of the year again! Everyone enjoys this nostalgic time when retailers try to push the idea of  "Back to School" down your throat as you desperately cling on to the last bits of your short-lived summer. One day the stores are filled with American flags and the ideas of old-fashioned BBQ cook-outs and the next school supplies and lunchboxes line each aisle.

These days it seems like my cherished messenger bags and backpacks have bitten the dust. I ruined my vintage Eddie Bauer leather backpack at Coachella this year with sunscreen and pancake syrup. Needless to say I need a replacement.

I really want the Jeffrey Campbell Rizzler-2 backpack in purple/orange suede. However with a price tag of $200.....ehhhh

I've also had a keen eye out for the vintage Fossil re-issue leather pieces. They're very classic and seem pretty durable. However I wouldn't take them to Coachella. Never make the same mistake twice.

The printed canvas and baja backpacks prove to be a bit more in my price range. The Zumiez Baja backpacks are only $21.99. The Asos Aztec backpack is $77 but alas it's out of stock.

I just need something durable to store my laptop and notebook in yet stylish enough to carry as a purse because I will not carry both around on campus!

Now who needs a protractor?
