I'm loving the whole rucksack micro trend at the moment! I think they're a nice change to the staple satchel which has been the 'it' style of bag for a while now (not that I don't own a few!). I think they're the perfect bag to use for hand luggage on holidays; you can fit a lot in them & sling them on your back out of the way when you have your hands full of suitcases, tickets & passports! Here are a few that caught my eye...

001. Tan Contrast Stitch Pocket Backpack Topshop £40 - Tan handbags in my opinion are timeless; I think this backpack looks vintage & neat. Looking at the pictures on the website it looks like this bag is two way meaning you can carry it as a tradition bag as well as a rucksack, bonus!

002. Blue Washed Oversize Rucksack Topshop £36 - This is probably my favourite bag out of the bunch! I think the colour is just gorgeous & is just overall cute! Too tempting to buy this one.

003. Floral Canvas Backpack ASOS £35 - The floral canvas adds a girly spin to this trend. I think the contrast between the dark leather & floral print works really well. This backpack may be a little too big for my taste but a gorgeous bag none the less.

004. Washed Canvas Backpack ASOS £35 - A neutral version of the bag above. Love the tan detailing!

005. Stripe Rucksack Fat Face £40 - Probably the perfect beach bag! Nautical stripes? Check! Room for tanning oil & towel? Check! What else could you ask for!

So what do you guys make of this style of bag? Do you think you'll be storing away your satchels in place of a rucksack?...


  1. I love the nautical one! Very lovely! :)


  2. Love No:5 it's roomy with a nice striping print.
