Anya Hindmarch Smiley Backpack

I used to get so psyched every September when the new school year would start- new books, new binders, fresh pens and pencils- so much fun for a dork like me!

Though those (school-going) days are long gone for me, I think I may have found just the thing to give me the same "I'm looking cute and I'm ready for anything" vibe that I like to believe I conveyed strolling into the school yard out of my mom's minivan.

I think that the real New Year (not the new school year) is the perfect time to recreate those excited feelings.

Love love LOVING Anya Hindmarch's perforated leather smiley-face backpack, and at $1450 it definitely qualifies as a Treat Yo' Self Tuesday item. Get yours at
