Mini Theme Wardrobe: Lazy Sunday in the City, or “Wears a Kanken Backpack”

Felt inspired to do another virtual capsule wardrobe post, but this one isn't distilled down from a high concept theme like the previous ones, just a basic collection inspired by the concept of walking around a big city in the spring or fall.
