Abercrombie | Sundress: Express | Necklace: Stella & Dot (Similar) | Ring: Stella & Dot | Sandals: Target | Nails: OPI "Let's Be Friends" (Similar)
I wanted this sundress especially for my Spring Break trip, but it was so comfortable and flattering when I tried it on I figured there was no need to wait to wear it, I just needed to add a layer for warmth. Once again it's true-to-size, and bonus points for the pockets. This style of dress comes in a couple of other options, like this floral print and a denim version as well.
This duster sweater is the same as the one I featured on Friday, different color. It's true to size, very comfortable, and a great weight for spring. It's still on sale for $35 through today, with an additional savings of 10% or more plus free shipping on orders $50. (Normally free shipping starts at $75 for Abercrombie orders.)

Monday Motivation: Packing Plans
I promise I'm not being evasive about where we're going for Spring Break for any reason other than the fact that it's on the brink of cancellation and it feels even more disappointing to cancel when I've blabbed about it to more people than just immediate friends and family.
That said, I think I'm usually a pretty self-motivated person, but when it comes to packing for a trip, I am the worst. I put it off to the same degree I put off making an appointment to the gynecologist. If we do end up going, I'll be packing this afternoon. And this time I have a new strategy I'm going to try. I'm going to make an "appointment" for myself and set at timer. I have this theory that packing expands to fit the amount of time you give it, whether you're moving house or going on vacation. So I'm going to give myself one hour to pack everything I need for six days, five nights. I think if I can condense the process by just staying really focused on it, maybe I won't dread it so much.
I'm also going to do the same thing with my kids. They are pretty good at packing on their own, but they do need supervision or a very specific list. I can't just write "Underwear" on the list or they will only pack one pair and we have to go shopping immediately after we arrive (true story). So we'll block out 30 minutes to pack for them...hopefully not back-to-back with my packing session because that will do me in. And somehow two boys can pack in about half the time as me. It really does make me think I am over-complicating the process somehow and there has to be a way to simplify.
So if you have secrets or strategies for a fast, painless packing strategy, by all means please share. I am in need of some motivation today and am hoping you all can point me in the right direction!
