Back-to-school means tons of shopping. Pens, pencil cases, binders and books—but those things can get so boring. While they are necessary, and even fun to some, my favorite part of back-to-school is picking out my bag(s)! Purchasing my bag for school is always such a hard feat—I mean as smart collegiettes we want to make sure we’re okay with the price tag, that it’s big enough to fit all of our belongings, and most importantly that it defines our sense of style. Her Campus has approved 20 of the cutest bags for back-to-school, making sure to keep different personalities and budgets in mind!
