If you've been following me for awhile now, you might have seen this bag numerous times already. I bought this backpack because I needed a backpack to bring with me when I went to New York back in October. I was mainly drawn to the minimalist aesthetic of the bag, and was surprised on how much room it had. It was the perfect back pack to tote around the city while we were out and about doing touristy things. This has also been my go-to bag when I'm running errands because to allows me to be hands free which is perfect when I have a lot of bags to carry after doing my grocery shopping.
Unfortunately, this bag is sold out at Zara. I've scoured the internet for similar options (in different price ranges) in case you are looking for one:
1. Topshop Leather backpack ($85) - Not as structured as the Zara backpack, but it has a very similar look to it. It has a more of a rugged and slouchy look. 100% leather with silver hardware.
2. KENSIE Convertible backpack ($99) - Same shape and look sans the top handle. This backpack also converts to a shoulder bag. It's a two-in-one bag. Faux leather with gold hardware.
3. Michael Kors Small Rhea Zip backpack ($298) - Slightly bigger than the Zara backpack and has more compartments, but with a similar structure. The backpack is available in 4 different colors.
4. Sophie Hulme Mini Rucksack ($850) - The most similar looking backpack out of the four options. The straps, however, are much wider than the Zara backpack. It is also the most expensive bag out of the four. Cowhide leather with gold hardware. Also available in a Berry color.
