I have been wanting a backpack for a while. With all of my road trips, there had been so many times where I wished I had a backpack. Totes are amazing and I have a ton that I love…. but sometimes you just need a backpack.
When I saw these new slim monogrammed ones from Madeline and Co, I knew it was exactly what I wanted! I actually interviewed Madeline on here a few years ago. I loved those backpacks, but they were definitely more suited for students with lots of books. These slim ones are practical for students and non-students. In full disclosure, I ordered the bag and Madeline saw it come through and refunded it– thank you, Madeline!
Despite their slim profile, they fit a surprising amount of things. There are three main compartments. The one closest to the back is fitted with a sleeve for a laptop and at least two notebooks (or one textbook) would fit. Then the middle compartment fits even more notebook-sized items. And the front pocket has space for planners, hard drives, pens, etc.
I love the look of it and how practical it is. I have been bringing it on every trip lately.
