Just recently we were discussing travel totes, however I have to tell you that I might never carry a tote. Okay, may be I exaggerate, but you catch my drift, right? Carrying a backpack was so much more comfortable and kind on my shoulders. Now mind you this is not your average backpack because those can get lumpy. I do not like when things end up at the bottom of a well and you can never get your hands on your stuff.
I was recently introduced to the Hartmann brand and boy! they make some durable and sturdy backpacks. I liked that this backpack could hold all my stuff and by all I mean - laptop, small vanity pouch, chargers, DSLR camera, two lens, chargers, hardcover book, sunglasses, energy bars and more. That's a lot! I didn't feel any discomfort and my shoulders were not pinching like they do with a tote.
Anyhoo... moving on to the outfit, we ACTUALLY shot this at IAD airport. This is what I wore on our flight to Tampa, FL.
