I have been a resident of Utah since 1995. Originally from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, my dad was transferred for work and we have lived in the Salt Lake valley ever since. Although, I always claim being a citizen of Canada, the reality is, I have lived here for 20 years and Utah is my home. So when I was approached by The Home T, Utah was my obvious choice (I wont lie, I debated getting the awesome Canada one). You honestly cannot have too many awesome graphic tee’s and with fall layering on the rise, The Home T is a fun addition, no matter what state or country you live in! It was a nice fun twist to a casual outfit, turned work wear for a day at the office.
Even with fall around the corner, I still can’t shake my obsession with monochromatic looks. Regardless of the fact that majority of my clothing has become minimal, one thing that probably will never be completely minimal is my accessories. Which segues into my next topic: my embellished backpack. I know you are probably wondering why I am carrying a piece of the late nineties over my shoulder, but when I saw this darling little backpack I couldn’t stop coming back to it. Something about it reminded me of my pre-teen love for ‘all the things’ and my over obsession with Lisa Frank. It’s quirkiness drew me in and I fell in love with it. Even when I wore it, my friends and family didn’t understand why I was sporting such an eccentric pack but soon fell for its original charm.
I love a good simple backpack. It’s a great go to for everyday errands, travel, or even just daily use. Besides relieving one side of your shoulder from carrying a purse all day, the double strap gives you a bit more freedom than a traditional bag. The best part about this Nicole Lee pack was the fact that it not only is a backpack, but can transform into a handbag if need be and I am all about versatility.
