Outfit of the Day - With a difference!

I've taken a bit of time out of work today to snap some photos of my backpack in between the random bursts of rain we seem to be getting! 

I am slightly windswept but I thought as it's a backpack photo it should really be done in the great outdoors!

I love my backpack! I think it's fab, it's a Vango 60 + 20 and its the comfiest backpack I tried (and I did try a lot!) I would also really recommend the guys over at the Wearhouse for being super helpful!

Here are the photos as promised! Let me know what you think!

I'm trying to think of some various planning posts to do but let me know if there's anything you'd like to see me blog about!

Backpacks


Well the great hunt for the legendary backpack has begun! We spent the morning in town hunting for backpacks. It was all very interesting. I was told that I have a weirdly small back and whatever backpack I get my back will most likely be too small for it...... slightly unhelpful really.

There are also not enough feminine backpacks on the market! Now I know having a backpack is of course more about the fit and the comfort of the backpack than the overall look, but as I've got to cart the thing around for a whole year I would actually like it to look nice! However the backpack world does not seem to have caught up to this fact just yet....

Anyway after a two hour hunt of a lot of different backpacks, back analysis and a bit of a grump (from me!) I actually came across a pink backpack (which funnily enough Dan wanted in the black but unfortunately didn't fit him!). 

My backpack is a Vango 60 + 20 and pictures will be provided in due course once I do a test run! It seems MASSIVE, unfortunately I couldn't find a smaller backpack so this will have to do!

Dan didn't unfortunately find a backpack today so the hunt is still on going for him so expect some updates in that area soon hopefully!


I did also get some rather cute Merrell trekking sandals. Not the most fashionable things I've ever seen and I doubt I'll win any awards wearing them, but they are relatively stylish and practical and my feet should be very happy in them! 

So all in all a very successful (and somewhat pink!) day for me! Dan is still on the shopping look out! Oh well I never need much of an excuse to shop!
