The Leather Backpack

I have been wanting a tanned leather backpack for a long time. This one is my mothers - I've convinced her to let me borrow it for 2 weeks.

Mother has had the backpack for years, but I had forgotten she owned it. A few years ago when I started watching the Felicity series on Netflix, I became obsessed with finding a backpack like the one she carried. I was able to find one by Madewell that I liked, but it was out of my immediate price range (time to start saving!). For now I'm perfectly content being able to carry around my mothers. It's so buttery soft! Below I've paired some backpacks and sandals that I think go particularly well. My boyfriend picked out the ones I'm wearing, and I think he did an excellent job - and they go so well with my backpack on loan!

Sandals and leather backpacks

Sandals: 1 // 2 // 3  Backpacks: 1 // 2 // 3


  1. I think your mother has just lost her backpack Amber. HAHAHA It looks really good with your sandals girl. I've always liked them. Love your top too!

  2. Very cute backpack. It has character.
    I love Keri Russell. She's great in the new TV show, "The Americans" and was terrific as the lead in the movie, "Waitress."

  3. Love the combo of flat sandals and backback! Hope you find an equally cute one once your Mom reclaims her backpack. Now inspired to rewatch some Felicity episodes. I used to love that show.
