Three bags to make your co-workers coo

When I was younger the only thing I ever looked forward to about going back to school, was the fact that I’d have a brand new backpack across my scrawny shoulders.

Every September a new bag was purchased and a huge grin beamed across my ‘innocent’ face.

Alas, those care-free school days are LONG behind me, but my backpack wearing days are still very much intact.

Who doesn’t love a backpack?

In fact, (until recently) I had always referred to the popular bag style as a ‘backsack.’

However, after constantly being pulled up on the controversial title I’d adopted, I’ve changed my ways and followed the backpack crowd.

“A backpack — also called bookbagkitbagknapsackrucksackpack, or sackpack backsack — is, in its simplest form, a cloth sack carried on one’s back and secured with two straps that go over the shoulders.”

Coined in the 1910’s, the bag has grown with the times and we’ve witnessed multpile variations of the beloved bag.

And since September whizzed past quicker than a Donald Trump tweet hitting the headlines, the back-to-school season has officially kicked off.

With that in mind, it felt only fair to us ‘adults,’ to share some back-pack to work inspiration.
