Buckets vs. Backpacks

Guest blogger: Lynda (US) from Lynda on the Hudson.

HI, I’m Lynda, the creator of Lynda on the Hudson. I’m so excited to be a guest on Jasmine’s wonderful blog! I love the open and honest way she sees the world and I couldn’t be happier about this experience. Also, I love her taste! Especially when it comes to the bloggers she asks to appear on hers! Wink! Wink!

I started this week off by looking at the new bags designers are bringing out for this season. Something you guys will find out if you get to know me… I’m fanatical about bags!

Bucket bags vs. backpack by guest blogger Lynda. Visit

Of the few new bags I saw, the two styles that stood out the most were the Bucket and the Backpack. I don’t know about you but I haven’t used a backpack since high school! The bucket bag, however, I have always had a soft spot for. Four years ago I found a vintage 60’s Louie bucket bag at a flea market and it was love at first sight! I wore that bag everywhere and still bring it out from time to time. It’s definitely one of my classic favorites!

So all that brings me to is The Bucket vs. The Backpack!

I’m still a bit unsure at the moment — I’m really into my vintage bucket — but these backpacks are really hitting a chord with me. Especially Chanel’s newest one. OMG! Did you see that bag?

Have you tried the coolest Bucket of the season? Whether your style is biker or bohemian, there is a bucket bag out there for you!

Or have you used one of the hip new backpacks that are taking over? Just because it’s practical doesn’t mean it can’t be fashion forward!

Below are some of my choices. Hopefully this helps you to make up your own mind about The Bucket vs. The Backpack… or makes it even more difficult! Good Luck!

Bomboneras y mochilas

(traducido por Jasmine Rabuñal)

Bloguera invitada: Lynda (EE.UU.) de Lynda on the Hudson.

¡Hola! Soy Lynda, la creadora de Lynda on the Hudson. Estoy muy emocionada por escribir en el fantástico blog de Jasmine. Me encanta cómo ve el mundo, de un modo abierto y honesto y no puedo estar más contenta por esta experiencia. Además, ¡tiene buen gusto! Sobre todo por los blogueras que invita ;)

He empezado la semana echando un vistazo a los bolsos que los diseñadores nos traen esta temporada. Algo que vais a descubrir sobre mí...¡Soy una fanática de los bolsos!

De los pocos bolsos nuevos que he visto, destacan dos estilos: la bombonera y la mochila. No sé vosotras, pero yo no he usado una mochila desde el instituto. Sin embargo, siempre me ha gustado el bolso tipo bombonera. Hace cuatro años encontré una de Louis Vuitton de los años 60 en un mercadillo y fue amor a primera vista. La llevaba a todas partes y aún la uso de vez en cuando. Sin duda, es uno de mis bolsos clásicos preferidos.

Y aquí tenemos: las Bomboneras o las Mochilas.

Todavía tengo mis dudas (me encanta mi bombonera vintage) pero estas mochilas me gustan mucho. Sobre todo la nueva de Chanel. ¡Increíble! ¿La habéis vito?

¿Habéis llevado la bombonera más de moda esta temporada? No importa si vuestro estilo es motero o bohemio, hay una bombonera para cada una de vosotras.

¿O usáis una de las mochilas nuevas tan in que arrasan? Que sean prácticas no impide que sean lo último.

Aquí tenéis una selección. Espero que os ayude a decidiros sobre comprar una bombonera o una mochila, o incluso ponéroslo más difícil. ¡Buena suerte!
