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 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)

Thanks so much for all your well wishes about my bad case of poison oak! And sorry if it grossed anyone out. It grossed me out too! lol. I’m happy to say that the medicine worked quickly and my poison oak has dried up. It still itches a little from the new skin healing and I have scars from where the poison oak was but that always happens after I get poison oak and they should fade. Hopefully I don’t get it again.

Enough about my poison oak (unless you want to continue telling me how bad you feel for me…I can always use some sympathy 😉 )…but really, let’s talk about my amazing leopard print coat -from Fevrie! And you can shop the entire store 40% off with code kacieskloset– It’s such a fun way to add some color and print to your winter wardrobe. I kid you not, I have worn it three times already. Which is a lot considering it’s been the 60’s the past week and a half. Yes, it’s January and we have weather in the 60’s + sunny. Be jealous.

Shop Fevrie 45% off with code kacieskloset (valid thru 2/28/15)

I’m going to tell you a little secret about myself. When I was little, after my birthday and Christmas, I’d set up a display in my bedroom of all my gifts and I’d keep it up for what some might say was “way too long”…and I still do it. I kid you not, right now in my bedroom, there is a lovely display of all my gifts. Front and center of my display is the leopard purse my 87 year old grandpa got me for Christmas and the black scarf my dad got me. (Also, my new cuff bracelet which wasn’t a Christmas gift but it’s new and I love it so I added it to the display 🙂 ) Do my dad and grandpa know how to shop for me or what?! It probably helps that I email everyone links with the exact items I want and strict instruction to only buy what’s on my list…do not go rouge! (yes, I’m aware this makes me sound controlling/high-maintenance/not-in-the-true-spirit-of-gift-giving/etc. but I promise you I’m a good person) My grandpa, he stuck to the list. But my dad, my dad went rouge. You see, in my immediate family we draw names to exchange gifts. My dad drew me and he did. not. stick. to. my. list! Uh oh! But guess what?! He nailed it! He got me the gorgeous cashmere scarf I’m wearing in today’s post and yesterday’s post (along with several other items that were on my list) and I love it so much! It was such the perfect surprise gift and my dad was so happy when he saw how much I loved it. He said he was a little nervous veering from my list but it totally paid off! I guess I shouldn’t be so strict when it comes to my list. Lesson learned. Ok honestly, I’ll probably still be strict…lesson not learned 🙂 Thanks so much Dad and Grandpa (and mom for helping Grandpa shop) for the amazing Christmas gifts!
