As a mom, we all have to draw our line in the sand somewhere, a place you’re not willing to go beyond. For me it’s many things: I won’t let my kids wear Crocs, I won’t drive a mini van, and I won’t let them have a Dora the Expolora backpack. I’m a meanie, right?
My 6 year old daughter is starting first grade in the fall and needed a proper backpack. Because her taste level cannot be trusted, I had to scour the internet for some non-princess choices to present to her.
Here were my top pics:
1. Watermelon backpack by Lazy Oaf x Nasty Gal
2. Coral Peaches by JanSport
3. Herschel Supply Co. for crewcuts
4. Herschel Supply Co. for Tea
5. Denim-dye by Mi-Pac
We already have the Fjallraven and offered that to our daughter, but of course she snubbed her nose at, because I need something neuw mooomm! So finally she made a decision on the pink striped Herschel one from JCrew.
Done and done and no Dora.
