Small Girl, Big Ideas

Cabled Knits & Polka Dots

Our first weekend back together in Pennsylvania we decided to really just dive into all that is Pennsylvania, which is basically visiting Amish country for pretzels and cheese. Our days have felt incredibly busy, and honestly, I have been a bit stressed coming home each day as I feel like the laundry list of things we need to do is growing exponentially. I have a terrible tendency to let it get to me, and that needs to end pronto because we're not going to magically be able to deal with the boxes of stuff we have no room for now that are sitting in the guest bedroom.


I got some gifts on Black Friday online, and I was a bit too excited to get the Sass & Peril discount. So much I actually ordered this tote and a few for my friends while standing in line at Disney. I am glad I got this one too - the raccoon is too cute and these bags are just to die for. And guess what - you can win the fox one on my blog starting on the 20th!

  2. I have been swooning over your fox tote for a while now and this raccoon one is (if possible) even cuter. So I'm pretty stoked on the upcoming giveaway! Further, I have that tendency too. Bad thing when you're still in school... I probably should study more and start earlier. xo

  3. I've already expressed my love for the fox tote, so it's exciting you'll be doing a giveaway! As always, adorable outfit. I hope your stress levels go down soon. It's important for me to take time each day to relax my mind and make time for my happiness. (To-do lists always help.) <3

  11. Seriously, every time I see anything mustard colored I just get so happy. This dress is great on you and you styled it up perfectly for the cold weather! and I don't blame you for ordering so many of those tote bags - way too cute.

  12. You're seriously just too cute, I always love everything you wear. And those shoes kill me everytime I see them. I laughed out loud when I read that you bought that tote while standing in line- that's one way to pass the time ;) I think it's adorable too! And I hope you get caught up with everything so you can relax soon! But in the mean time, some Amish cheese can help de-stress :)
