OOTD - Rebecca Minkoff Julian Leather Backpack

Happy Thursday Noobs!  I'm hoping that this will be the last of my cold-weather outfits, but knowing the unpredictable weather in Canada that may be wishful thinking.  Nonetheless, I'm actually enjoying the blanket of snow that has been lingering around Toronto - especially since it's been bright and sunny!  If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that Brian and I will be moving to the heart of Toronto at the end of the month, which means that I'll be able to walk to work everyday!  In anticipation of a walking commute, I've been exploring purse options that look cute and will be easy on my back as I trek to-and-from work everyday.  Let me tell you, when I came across this Rebecca Minkoff Julian leather backpack I actually let out a yelp and a fist pump.  Bonus points for scoring this baby at a ridiculously amazing price during the recent Shop Bop sale.  A stylish bag that's a back-pain banisher, does it get any better?  I don't think so!  Read on for full outfit details and additional photos.

This Julian backpack is my second purse purchase from Rebecca Minkoff, and I have to say that I'm really impressed with the quality.  The leather is perfectly pebbled and so, so soft.  The bag itself feels sturdy, but is surprisingly light making it great for carrying around your essentials.  I opted for silver hardware this time around, since I have so many black and gold bags already and needed an excuse for purchasing yet another black leather bag.  What can I say, I like what I like.

Seriously, how cute is little Fritz in these photos?  This winter has been so cold that poor Fritz hasn't been able to go outside for very long in a few months.  As a result, he's gotten so lazy and most of this 'walk' outside consisted of me carrying his highness around like the spoiled pup he is!

What do you guys think of the leather backpack?  Are you into it, or will you pass on the trend?  Let me know!
