One of my favorite birthday gifts so far this year was actually a backpack. I haven't carried one in years, since I retired my blue Aloha print L.L.Bean, but to my surprise the bag I used to carry my books in has gotten a seriously cute update. My aunt bought me a floral print bag from Macy's that is the perfect size for a day trip, just large enough for the essentials- water bottle, wallet, sunscreen and a spare tee. The greatest part of this trend is there are colors and patterns for everyone and this handbag investment won't break the bank. There are tons of great options for some seriously fabulous price points.
