Can you believe it’s officially August and nearly time for back-to-school? I’m in a bit of denial about the end of summer since this one has been one of my favorites & I’m not ready to pull out the scarves and rain boots just yet. Even though I’m not ready for fall, I figured it was time for a back-to-school series on the blog since it’s just weeks away for lots of kids. This week I’ll be bringing you backpacks and styled looks to help you get the little ones ready for the school year.

Today we’re kicking things off with the ultimate backpack roundup for both boys & girls. I’m backpack obsessed, so this has been one of my favorite roundups to date (and you know that’s saying a lot for me). Enjoy!
