Everything Floral December 23, 2014

It seems like we will not be missing out on florals as it has now re-appeared for the entire year. The only problem is you will not be able to appreciate their smell because the flowers that I am talking about are the one’s you see in clothes and yes, bags.

These floral patterns have been out and about for sometime now. Usually, they will be out during the spring collection however I guess people need to perk themselves out or psyche themselves for what the spring season does to them. This is just me trying to make a guess so I can be right or I can be wrong.

I have been slowly seeing this pattern on women’s tops, dresses, skirts and bags. Mind you, it is not only for women now but also for men too! Before there was popular saying that real men can wear pink well I guess you can also say, real men wear floral prints.

I guess the main benefactor of this prints being available all season are the teenagers. Aside from appearing on all the grown-ups latest fashion style, these prints are also beginning to appear on the schoolgirl backpacks too.

I have to gush about this because her bags have been a favorite of mine. I love the Cath Kidston floral backpacks. I own one of her floral printed day bags and I love the backpacks that have been going around. I like that the patterns are mixed and matched but still making the florals stand out and be the main piece of her creation.

Another fashion find that I was able to unravel are the floral backpacks that can be seen on this shopping site, Resultly.The bags that they have can be used by schoolgirls and at the same time, young women too who are just starting out in college or their careers in the corporate world.

Not all girls like their bags to be pink so there are actually a lot of variations on how the floral pattern is being incorporated in the design.

I have found loads of floral backpacks in Ebay. They have the floral canvas backpacks and the floral print ones too.

Am I giving you a difficult time to choose? Me too! There are a lot of possible options and I am trying hard to stick to my one bag purchase! Look at this Mossimo floral backpack. The mint color as the background of the floral print is so refreshing.

How about you? What did you end up buying? I think I am going to resist and get two of these bags – one for me and for my younger sister. I bet she will be thrilled!

My First Canvas Backpack

 I’ll never forget my first day of college probably because I had the cutest canvas backpack. Most of my friends thought taking a backpack to college was lame, but they were so wrong. I ended up finding the perfect one on my go-to shopping app Resultly here, They had a ton of different options to choose from. I had an idea of what of what style and print I wanted to start my college career.

All of it seemed to happen so fast, one minutes I was a high school senior preparing to apply for college and the next I was moving into my new home. I’ll never forget that drive to Illinois State University with my parents and all of my stuff piled so high in the trunk, I still don’t understand how my dad could see in his rearview mirror. I had such mixed emotions about it, I was excited but also so incredibly nervous at the same time. It was a three hour drive so I remember having a lot of time to think and let’s just say that’s all I did.

When I first arrived one of my roommates was already there moving in some of her things. My mom and I unpacked all of my things, and in the blink of an eye my parents were on their way home without me. My first day of class was the next day so I wanted to organize all of my folders and notebooks. I can remember one of my roommates complaining that she should have bought a backpack rather than just use a tote bag, considering the amount of books she would have to carry.

So I told her where I bought mine and she started her frantic search online. She ended up finding this super chic and trendy leopard print ( one from Nordstrom ( It was a knapsack style that opened up and could probably fit most if not all of her books in it.

First day of college finally arrived! I had my floral print backpack all ready to go. It seemed like no matter how prepared I was I still couldn’t shake that nervous, butterfly feeling. To my surprise I noticed a lot of people with backpacks. I remember seeing this girl who had the floral print one ( that I almost bought from Charlotte Russe, but I decided against it since it wasn’t big enough. I had three classes that day, I talked to couple of new people who seemed really nice and possibly future friends.

So let’s fast forward three years to present day. I’m no longer at Illinois State but the memories I made there I’ll always carry with me. Now every time I look at that floral print backpack from my freshmen I reminded of my days there. It’s kind of amazing how a single object can bring back all of these memories. In a way my canvas backpack is symbolic for that next chapter in my life.
