If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that I suck at packing. It takes me weeks to organize but I still over pack and end up with a bunch of stuff I don’t need and nothing I do need. But worse is that I have to lug around a million heavy bags. However, this time Hubster and I vowed to learn how to pack properly and not be weighed down by luggage. So we went out got us a couple of backpacks and went to work.
I chose a Jansport backpack because they are inexpensive and have a lifetime warranty. Plus they come in every color imaginable; I chose the Pink Poodle superbreak backpack. Isn’t it adorable? I am trying very hard to stay stylish while being super practical. I think I’m doing an alright job. Although as you can see the pack is a little overstuffed but I am working on it. Someday I will glide through airports as gracefully as Audrey Hepburn.
The Hubster did his best to pack with his one bag, but he needed a lot of help. He didn’t know how to properly roll his clothing to make it more compact. But I helped him out and it did eventually get everything inside.
I picked this one for Hubster from an etsy shop called Medium Control, it’s their Drop the Needle backpack. I really love the canvas green and cool hipster logo. It’s a little small, but it fit all his things and it looks really nice on.
Well, we’re off on our little holiday. I hope you guys have a fabulous couple of weeks. I’ll miss y’all.
Picnic in the Rain
I am on the fence about this outfit. On one hand I really love it. It makes me feel like a picnic; with the checkered dress, red cardi and fruit necklace. It kinda makes me feel like June Cleaver. On the other hand I don’t find it to be that flattering and it’s missing a bit of something. I am not sure what though. Maybe a belt or chunky bracelets.
I just wanted to let ya’ll know that I am heading out on a little vacation this Saturday with the Hubster to go visit out families for a couple weeks, but I have lined up some fabulous guest bloggers. I am just too excited I couldn’t wait to tell you.
I hope ya’ll had a happy hump day!
This is a true smile of pure happiness. The snow is gone! I can’t believe it. The sun came out the last two days and the snow melted so fast. I wore my flats outside today and it felt so good to be able to switch it up in the footwear department.
I have to say that even though most of the snow is gone it’s still quite chilly. So thankfully I have my trusty classic trench. It is the perfect transition piece, it’s way lighter than a winter coat but it’s still long enough to keep you covered and warm.
Aren’t these pups the cutest?!
Who else is loving the neon and neutrals trend? I am. It brings me back to when I was a little girl in the 80’s. It’s so bright and fun.
I hope everyone is having a super week.
These photos are a lie. By the way I am dressed it would look like I am enjoying some warm weather because I have no socks or tights on, no sweater or scarf. This is all a lie. It is still in the negatives most days, and there is an abundance of snow on the ground. But yesterday I felt like dressing as if it were spring in my part of the world too. So two minutes after I took these photos I had to put tights on because I had goosebumps.
I really love this outfit, I love the denim, gray and orange altogether, I think it is a lovely combo. So lovely I have barely taken it off, even if a jersey dress isn’t the most flattering.
Dress + Jean Jacket- Old Navy
I really wanted a new colorful piece to wear with my orange dress so I whipped this up earlier this week. What do you guys think? I thought about making some in different colors for my shop.
Tada! You made it to the end of my post, thanks for sticking with me even though these photos are fakes.

First Bridal Item in my Shop
I just made my very first bridal veil and I am super excited! It’s not too big and the delicate flowers are pretty whimsical.
I dream of this piece being part of someone’s magical day.
My favorite part of this piece (which I plan on making my signature in all my bridal pieces) is the double layer blue heart on the bottom. It’s really meaningful; with two hearts together as one and it’s blue so it takes care of the tricky something blue tradition.
Please check out my shop Roxie Fitz Designs.
