As a kid, I looked forward to going back-to-school shopping with my mom every year. We'd get some fun supplies and a few fashionable outfits, but the most exciting purchase would always be a brand new backpack—and I took this task very seriously. My quest for the perfect book bag would take me (and my trooper mom!) from department store to specialty boutique to mass retailer... I refused to settle for any average accessory. After all, it would have to last me an entire academic year—so it had to be functional, roomy, and comfortable. But it also had to be fashionable, cute, and cool... If only I had the adorable Matilda Jane Kayla Backpack back in the day!
Colorful, durable, precious, and, best of all, washable, this backpack is available for just $25 with a Matilda Jane clothing purchase of $175.
Speaking of Matilda Jane clothing, how charming is this Lucia Shabby top ($38). Featuring a super-cute apple print, it's the perfect outfit for the first day of school—and it looks darling with leggings or shorts. Add a cardigan, and it works year-round!
