BACKPACK

By | Blue, Fall Outfit, Fashion, Leopard, Spring Outfit, Style, White | 35 Comments

Remember how in middle school, the nurse would check everyone for scoliosis? Well one year, the nurse thought I might have it and wanted to send me to some special doctor to get my back looked at. The nurse said my heavy backpack and “one-strapping” it was hurting my back. So what did my parents do? They made me use a rolling backpack! Ugh! Those things were the worse. I had come up with a master plan to get rid of it…with the help of my friends, we were going to break it. We’d give each other rides on it and jump off curbs with it, and on one glorious day, it finally broke! I took it to my dad and acted all sad about breaking my backpack (I didn’t want to get in trouble for doing it on purpose) and guess what?! He got out some tools and fixed it! I swear that thing was indestructible! I finally went to the doctor and he said my back was good and I finally broke the rolling backpack beyond repair so I got to go back to my regular cool backpack. The doctor did tell me that from then on, I needed to wear my backpack properly and I think nowadays the kids are “two strapping” it but I’m a 90’s kid and I just can’t help but stick with the one strap. Old habits die hard.

P.S. This backpack also has top handles so it can be carried like a purse too 🙂

I pinned this outfit a while ago and have been wanting to recreate the look ever sense. Only one problem…I didn’t have an olive green tee. Or did I? When I was cleaning out my closet/reorganizing it, I found my olive green tee that I had completely forgotten about. Cody said it’s a sign I have too many clothes but I say it’s a sign I need a bigger closet so I can see my clothes better. I think we can all agree that I’m right 😉

CLOSET STAPLE LOVE

I have been really loving my classic closet staples lately. And since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day (a.k.a. the day of love), why not wear all the closet staples I love in one outfit? Sure, this isn’t your typical Valentine’s Day post filled with pink and red and hearts but it is filled with love and that’s what matters. I kind of forgot how much I love my leather skirt (which is currently on sale!) since it’s been winter and I don’t look at my skirts much in the winter. I don’t like tights so I usually only bust out skirts when it’s warm enough to go bared legged. If you don’t own a black leather skirt, I urge you to get one! Also, I feel like I need to thank my sister again for giving me her tan coat. That right there is sisterly-love.

It was super nice weather the beginning of last week and then it rained for 4 days straight, and I wore this outfit the entire time it rained. Ok, that’s an exaggeration. Two of the four days I didn’t even get out of my comfy clothes but the other two days, I wore this outfit. I probably should have traded the heels for boots but I liked the heels with the outfit better so I sacrificed my feet in the name of fashion. Of course, I waited to take pictures until the rain storm was over so I guess that means I’ve worn this outfit three out of the last five days. Time to find a new outfit to wear stat!

I have been wanting a pair of  Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses for a year now. I first tried them on last summer when Cody and I went to the beach for our anniversary weekend but I couldn’t decide if I should buy the clubmasters or the aviators because I can’t make a decision to save my life. lol. So I ended up not getting either pair and have been trying to decide which to get ever since. Obviously, I finally decided on the clubmasters. This is my second pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses and they make theeee comfiest sunglasses. Sometimes I forget I’m even wearing them and don’t to take them off indoors and walk around like I think I’m some super cool gangster rapper. Then I realize that it got really dark and remember I still have my sunglasses on. Haha!
Today, I’ve teamed up with SunglassesShop for a Ray-Ban giveaway! Woot! Woot! SunglassesShop carries a large selection of luxury brands, making them the perfect place to shop for your next pair of sunglasses. They don’t advertise as having the lowest prices but from what I can see, their prices are cheaper than other stores 🙂 Ok, now for the fun part! Enter the rafflecopter below for your chance to win a pair of Ray-Bans of your choice! (excluding polarised/titanium and limited edition frames)

This outfit kind of happened by accident. The top I’m wearing is actually my pajama top. I wore it to bed and the next day when I was getting dressed, I put on the skirt and thought hmmm, this looks pretty cute with my pj top so I went with it 🙂 Also I’m feeling sick and just want to stay in my pj’s all day so this was a nice compromise. And then I went to the grocery store to buy soup because like I’ve said before, I live a really glamorous life, and then I got home and traded my skirt for sweatpants and heels for “bubba the boot”/my custom foot brace and now I’m resting in bed and have no clue what I’m going to do for next weeks posts because I feel too sick to take pictures and it’s supposed to be raining for the next 4 days which makes it difficult to take pictures. But I do have an exciting giveaway coming on Monday so that’s good. Want to know what you could win?! Ray Ban sunglasses! Yay! Be sure to come back on Monday to enter 🙂

I got to see my adorable little niece, Stevie Rae, last weekend. She’s 6 months old and I have been loving watching her personality develop but I gotta say, I’m not a huge fan of this latest development. She used to be all about her Auntie Kacie but not anymore. Nope! Now she’s all about her Uncle Cody. Every time I held her, she’d reach for Uncle Cody. And she wouldn’t smile for me but she’d smile for Uncle Cody. What?!?! Has Uncle Cody ever changed a diaper? No. Has Auntie Kacie? Yes! Had Uncle Cody bought 15 onesies that say “uncles little lady” or “my uncle rocks”? No. Has Auntie Kacie bought 15 “auntie” onesies? Yes! Can’t Stevie Rae see that I’m supposed to be her favorite?! Maybe she’s getting sick of me giving her non-stop kisses? lol.

So I’m going to be completely honest with you…my lip color is totally photoshopped. The lipstick I had on was way too bright and looked horrible with the outfit (what was I thinking when I put that color on?! lol) so I edited my lips to be a color that went better with the outfit. But now I’m really loving this edited/fake color and I wish I actually owned lipstick this color. If anyone knows of one, please tell me so I can buy it 🙂

I asked Cody if I looked okay in these photos and he said “you look very pale…like a pretty vampire.” Haha! Lucky for him, I’m a Twilight fan so I took it as a total compliment. If only I could read minds and predict the future too…
I am smitten with every single item I’m wearing. Get it? Because my shirt says ‘smitten kitten’? I know, I know, I’m so clever. lol. But seriously, my smitten kitten ILY tee is sooooo comfy! I literally want every single item on ILY’s website! And my heels! Can we just talk about my heels for a sec? I scored them at TJ Maxx for $15! Can you believe it? They’re sold out everywhere online but I found a few similar options (here & here) or if you live near a TJ Maxx, RUN to it and see if they still have these heels there.
P.S. My coat runs really small. I sized up two sizes to a large.

I love the combo of leather and lace! It’s like tough & sweet, sugar & spice, peanut butter & jelly, salt & pepper, Bert & Ernie, Scooby & Shaggy, Thelma & Louise, Mickey & Minney. Ok so now I’m just listing classic couples. lol. But you get what I’m saying…leather and lace are the perfect pairing!
