You might expect me to blog about oversized zipper clutches in neon colors. I must admit; a neon yellow rectangle in your hand does complement an outfit. Unfortunately I don't go to cocktail parties where I only bring a lipstick and my phone. The harsh reality is that I need to carry around a laptop, books, a camera, a nest of wires and chargers and much more uninteresting stuff. On top of that I need to be able to jump on my bike, run to catch a train, pick up my kid from school and occasionally go through some racks of clothing. So I could show you what I would wear to a cocktail party, but I could also show you what I would wear to school or during a city trip. That would be my beloved leather backpack.

I'm so glad tha you show the "real" side of you, not like most of the bloggers who pretend to have a glamourous daily life! Thumps up! But you know, I still think that this outfit is actually very very stylish!

I love how your leather rucksack is so essential and is also your stylish go-to accessory. (And I can't get enough of your new hair color, I love it!)

yeah, I have no use for clutches, much as I admire them. My countless messenger bags and backpacks and hobos and oversized purses, they're the ones that get all the love.

anne said...

I love backpacks. yours is cool!

Bec said...

Wow, it looks so cool on you. It's true. I bought a few clutches but didn't use them much bc they're not so practical. Started sewing straps on to them so I could use them!

Julian said...

Practicality indeed. Great post!

En leuk stuk in de Jackie!

Laudy said...

And even though it's no fashionable oversized clutch, I love this one. I love this bag more than I like clutches. This bag has style. Simple, but effective.

roos said...

Meestal vind ik rugzakken een outfit letterlijk 'vernielen'. Maar bij jou klopt het allemaal! Goed zo!

Andrew said...

secondhand? score!!
and I know what you mean about practicality. I have so many portfolio's I would LOoooove to use, but they just don't serve a purpose for me

Cute bag! What kind of laptop do you use? I always have a hard time finding something that fits my Macbook!

Jan said...

Wow geweldige rugtas!
Staat ook goed bij de outfit,
