Oh The Humanity!!

Dress: Thrifted and revived  Blazer: F21   Shoes: Thrifted    Belt: Thrifted


There’s nothing worse than leaving your family after an AMAZING weekend with them. Oh wait, actually there is. It’s when you get home from said amazing weekend, and your eyes are all red and puffy from your teary departure, you (and by you I mean me) set your bags on the floor and contemplate unpacking in your current state of depression but you can’t even get yourself to unzip the dang suitcase. Instead it turns into more of a leave your bags on the floor for two days and slowly take out items as you need them, toiletries obviously escape that dreary bag first, but sometimes you just want to let that bag sit there, you know, let it  remind you that it wasn’t that long ago that you were with your family. It stands there as a mighty glimmer of hope that you’ll be back soon!  Or maybe it just stands there as a testament to how freakishly lazy you are. Watevs. I’m cool with both. Now who wants to come do my laundry while I eat an entire jar of Nutella in my jammies?!

  3. I'm right there with you sister! Just got back from the DR and my pink suitcase, ruined by the evil airport people, is just sitting there as a mockery of the wonderful two weeks I had.

    Now, I have to move into my new apartment, which is exciting, but until everything is moved in it is a big pain in the butt.

    I'm glad you had such an awesome time with your family and thank you again for guest posting for me!

    xoxo,

  8. Awww I can completely empathise..I'm Irish but living in Scotland and everytime I return after a visit home my bag sits unpacked tripping me up for days afterwards!! Guess you just have to try and unpack all the fond memories instead :)

  9. Haha I have the exact same suitcase problem whenever I get back from a trip! It annoys my boyfriend to no end seeing the suitcase in the same place in the loungeroom for two weeks, with its content getting gradually smaller & smaller!
