Public Service Announcement*

All you people preparing to head off to college in the fall,
or plan on moving anywhere temporary in any capacity,
your mother and my mother and I have a word of advice:

That one shirt with the cute ruffles that would be perfect for sailing (only)?
Five navy cardigans - each with a unique little detail that makes it different?
Everything that you want to bring because you "might" need it?

You'll never need it.
And the cool trick is, if you do end up needing it...
you have twenty bajillion girlfriends living with you or by you,
one of them will have what you need. In a cuter version.

And if that still doesn't work -
you now have an excuse to go shopping.

Don't do what I did.
Because when you need to leave, all you'll get out of it is migraines and this:

{As I'm writing this, I'm cramming my hol(e)y Tory Burch leopard flats,
into my already bursting-at-the-seams suitcase.
Oh well, you win some, you lose some.}

{Daddy, come help me.}

*This public service announcement was approved by a girl
who can attest that bringing too much unnecessary stuff
will only result in having to sit down in the middle of the floor,
surrounded by all of your so-called "treasures,"
and sobbing at your own stupidity.
And then a phone call to your sister,
who saved the day by bringing a whole 'nother suitcase...

plus chocolate cake.


  1. Ha so true! I just moved to a new house this weekend and that lesson is still applicable...for life outside of college!!

  2. This is hilarious! This happened to my sister as a happened to me moving out into married housing, but only with books (I was a history/English teaching major and had a LOT of books)

  3. Bahaha! This literally made laugh aloud!

  4. hahaha girl just wait till you go for a semester abroad.... somehow i came with 100 pounds and am leaving with close to 600.... packing hell

  5. So. True. I packed 300% more than I should have coming to college and when it came time to ship it all home last summer, it was the WORST.

  6. Well a girls got to be prepared! This post made me smile :)

  7. haha! this looks like my old dorm room.

  8. Love your humour - I literally laughed out loud while reading this. Could definitely relate to the 'you'll never need it'. xo

  9. So funny! I definitely over packed for college!

  10. Oh god, this is too true. I'm moving out this weekend too and I've been putting off packing because I know the exact same thing is going to happen to me :(

    You know whats worse? this is the end of my third year of college and I still haven't learned my lesson.

  11. OMG this is the funniest thing I have seen today!!!! My closet sorta looks likes this!!!! I have SMALL closet with too many things. I can say I am a minor hoarder. All the best girlie!

  12. Oh girl... I remember when I moved out of my dorms (and in) like 5 years ago... seriously brought my whole life with me... it was ridiculous! I even remember the bar in my closet snapped in half because of how heavy it was. I have issues :) congrats on being done and have a great summer!
