I have been scouring the web for more grown up, fashion forward "teacher bags". Needless to say, I am having very little luck. I figured that because I love your site and have bought several suggestions, that other teachers that read Outblush may have a similar problem. Can you help??? Keep up the great work! You guys are stars! -Bonnie"
Hey Bonnie, I'm Found of You, and I used to be a teacher and lug around my mountains of paper just like you. Now I hunch over a computer all day. Obviously I want to have back problems. If you really want to save your back and shoulders some grief on public transportation, you may have to sacrifice a little style. Try out a super cool rolling suitcase, and enviably chic backpack, or even better, an incredibly not-nerdy-at-all rolling. mothereffing. backpack. #5 is cheap and comes in 22 different colors and prints!
1 - Heys USA EZ Computer Case 21" Carry-On ($128, in five colors)
2 - Jenni Chan Dots 25" Spinner ($91, on two colors)
3 - ClaireChase Jumbo Laptop Bak-Pack ($240, in three colors)
4 - Laurex Laptop Backpack ($67, in eight colors)
5 - J World Sunrise Rolling Backpack ($37, in 22 colors and patterns)
6 - U.S. Traveler Lightweight Rolling School Backpack ($30)

Found of You here: Rather than find you the perfect LBD, look to me for the perfect accessories! As an accessorizing whiz, I can style your "What do I wear with it?!" clothing, dig up awesome maternity and nursing clothes (I'm a Mommy!), and make your tootsies look perfect in fabulous flats (or pumps, or sandals). Oh, and if you need to give someone (ME!!) a gift, I say buy 'em food and books, and I'd love to help you find just the right stuff.
