Week Three of Unemployment: No Criminals! (Knock on wood)

No police officers or criminals banging down my front door this week, so I have felt a little bored at times, but my lackadaisical leanings vanish when I remember that I am going home for Christmas for two whole weeks on Saturday morning! This week has been a scramble of present-making, laundry and brainstorming for packing two weeks of clothing for a variety of events into ONE suitcase. It is a mind-bloggling game of tetris that could take now until I leave to figure out, but I am determined to make it work.

Concerning this week's happenings, I would post about the presents I have been making, but I can't ruin the surprise for the intended recipients, so instead, here is my packing inspiration of the week:

I think I might need to pack a little more color, but I love that these few, simple pieces come together to create an awesome outfit. I think "keep it simple" should be my mantra over the next few days.... What tips to you have for efficient and stress-free packing?
Happy Tuesday, everyone!


  1. Hooray for going home for Christmas! So happy.
