Not Your Average Backpack

BackpackMain_edited-1// Deux Lux Downtown Backpack // Rebecca Minkoff Tech Wristlet (similar) //

Okay kids, it’s official. Backpacks have made a major comeback, or maybe you’d call it a rebirth. Even Chanel is rockin’ the backpack these days (take a look at this beauty). I got my new Deux Lux Downtown Backpack a few weeks ago and I finally busted it out last weekend. The fiance and I went for a little day trip adventure on Sunday and we decided to ride our bikes. I felt a little like a kid on the first day of school. But then I wondered, what have I been doing all these years without a backpack?! This is awesome! I could easily carry everything I wanted to have with me for the day and still be hands free. Just like a tourist. Yes, I looked exactly like a tourist in my own town. But a stylish tourist! Check out the cool features of this bag. It’s actually a great combination of the trendy bucket bag + backpack. I’m obsessed with gold hardware these days, and the perforated (faux) leather adds a cool edge to the look. It’s quite spacious but not oversized. Are you sold yet? You should be. Every women should have a stylish go-to backpack for such occasions as bike rides and other tourist-like activities!





Here are a few other fun backpack options I’ve been checking out. Happy shopping!… and bike riding, touristing, etc :-)

Much Love, Cara Michelle

The Ultimate Boat Shoe

Joie Boat Shoe_edited-1// Joie Mirah Slip On //

I’m not entirely sure what makes a shoe a “boat shoe” but this nautical slip on definitely makes me want to sail the ocean blue. I’m loving them and they are so comfortable I might sleep in them tonight! The super soft suede is the perfect pale blue color. And I love the white contrast stitching. I got them on sale so I’m even more excited at how much I love them. Now I kind of want them in the dark navy color too. They are still on sale at but I think it might be a final sale, so if you need a size gauge I’m almost always an 8 1/2 and the size 39 fit perfect.
