Back Packin

Friday.  Shewl.  

I might just take this backpack and run away for a week or five.  Even though I live at the beach year-round, I still have the urge to run away to a tropical island.  One without work or bills or cell phones....ok, maybe just Instagram...  Good thing today is Friday or the hubby may be calling the search squad on me.  

I completely caved on the backpack trend.  After rocking the mini backpacks circa 1998, I wasn't sure I wanted to go down this road again (anyone else remember the mini backpacks?  I thought they were cooler than cool..)  But after finding this one at T.J.Maxx for $35 bucks and reminding myself that I needed a white bag for Spring, I caved.  And honestly I am so happy with my decision.  No buyers remorse here.  It's chic, convenient & hands free.  Done.  

I will be rocking these DIY cutoffs on the regular from now until mid October.  Consider yourselves warned.   And what goes better with homemade cutoffs than a monogrammed pink pineapple phone case.  Duh.  I have had this adorable Minnie & Emma case for awhile now and I just love the bright colors and monogram option.  Minnie & Emma carries a variety of precious iPhone & iPad case options as well as fun gifts like stationary and monogrammed coasters.  And just for being wonderful fashion friends, they are offering 20% OFF with code Moda20 from now until May 21st.  Happy Shopping!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
