Utilitarian Backpack

Major Heart Eyes For This Utilitarian Backpack + $1000 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway

Today I am sharing one of my latest obsessions: a cool, utilitarian backpack that happens to be gorgeous AND practical AND heavily discounted!  It is a really nice size and great quality too… plus the fact that it is designed and made in Stockholm, Sweden makes it really unique, which I love.  I feel like this bag is not only useful, it is stylish enough to serve as functional home decor (think Fixer Upper-style entryway, ha ha)!  On another note, remember that this is the last week to enter the $1000 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway (you can enter up to 142 times to increase your odds) – don’t miss out on this one :-).  Scroll down for backpack details and discounts; and scroll all the way down to enter the giveaway!

Utilitarian Backpack

I am always a sucker for cool utilitarian pieces, but for some reason the fall season makes me crave them even more.  Earthy tones, rich leathers, all-weather items I can toss around without worry… what’s not to love, right?!  So when the Stockholm, Sweden-based company Gaston Luga recently sent me one of their backpacks I could not wait to take it for spin.  Gaston Luga is known for their cool, minimalist designs and impeccable craftsmanship; and I have to say, I absolutely love this piece.  From the gorgeous leather and sturdy canvas material to the cool metal detail; from the large front pocket and internal (13″) laptop sleeve to the leather-trimmed rear passport pocket – this truly is an elegant bag with stylish yet practical details.  I feel like it would end up as a functional piece of home decor on the show Fixer Upper, ha ha.  Plus, as a mom who loves to be hands-free, I can see this easily serving as a perfect diaper bag when traveling as well (and Brandon says he would actually enjoy carrying it too)!

Gaston Luga is currently offering a free leather address tag with any purchase, along with some large discounts.  You can enjoy 15% off your purchase with code “alittlecasual15,”  FREE shipping, and non-European customers can also receive a 20% tax rebate (rebate comes before 15% discount).  All in all, this amounts to about an $85-$100 savings, which is a great deal for a bag of this size and quality!

If you are looking for a stylish, well-crafted utility bag (which would make a perfect holiday gift for him OR her), this is seriously a great option and with the discounts the price is fantastic (this is the “Classic” style but they have some other sleek, slightly smaller designs as well – I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted!).  Before being introduced to Gaston Luga, I had my eye on a couple of similar bags from some other brands, but after seeing and carrying this, I definitely recommend this one!

As always thank you for stopping by!  Be sure to scroll down for outfit links and the $1000 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway.  Also feel free to leave a comment below – I would love to hear from you!

Wishing you a blessed day,
