As a modern girl of the 21st century (and a blogger, no less), I do much of my work on the internet. In fact, a lot of my life revolves around the internet — shopping, researching, navigating (thank god for Google maps!), networking, even socializing. Yes. it’s weird (and perhaps a little scary), but it’s true! So chances are, if I’m out and about for most of the day, my laptop is comin’ with me. After all, now that the sun is starting to peek out from its winter hibernation, I’d sooner be outside enjoying the outdoors with an iced coffee while I tap away at my laptop instead of being holed up in my home office or stuck in the library — and I’m sure the same goes for all you college gals who still want to enjoy the scenery while you study! So if you’re going to haul your laptop with you all day, you might as well get something stylish to carry it in, right? Trust me — not all handbags are designed for stuffing electronics inside (I’ve broken my share of shoulder straps due to the sheer weight of all my loot), and unearthing your old Jansport backpack from junior high definitely isn’t the most chic option around. As a result, I’ve rounded up some super-cute laptop bags that are the perfect balance of function and fashion. Plus, they’re just the right size for squeezing in everything you need for class or work in this modern day and age. Talk about geeky-chic!
