Blonde Block Party

It's my turn to host...

We're starting off with...

Hi y'all! I'm Cat from the blog

I'm so excited to be joining the Blonde Block Party and to be sharing with you my must haves for my big move to the Caribbean! When you read this post, I will hopefully have landed safely on the island of Grenada where I will be living for 2.5 years! {You can read about all that jazz here.}

Just like any big trip (or big move), it's tough to decide what to bring and what leave home or donate. Here are a few items that I just can't live without, and I bet you can't either.

First, maxi dresses. Love them. They roll up so small in a suitcase and hide a multitude of sins. Even though school is back in session and the fall decorations are out in stores, don't let that stop you from rocking the summer clothing just a little bit longer!

The second thing I can't live without? Crafts. You better believe I packed a sewing machine, buttons, fabric, beads, jewelry making supplies, scrapbooking supplies, stamps and whatever else I could fit into my bags! Remember even when you travel, bring something you love whether it's a book or the knit sweater you just started making. I love to stay busy with my hands, and I plan on crafting throughout my time in the Caribbean!

Oh, and I bet you can relate to my final must have: Cheap sunglasses. I know I am a total klutz and would lose expensive glasses in the water in a snap. But, this could apply to each and every one of you in daily life!! Sometimes the best things in life really are inexpensive!

I'm thinking of ways to keep cool with the current heat wave we're enduring!
Wouldn't these be so yummy while lounging by the pool?

If staying inside is your idea of a good summer, why not Netflix some of your favorite shows?

I love a girl that can fight crime while wearing fabulous shoes.

What do you do for summer fun?

Katie said...

Oh, the frozen fruit pop looks delish! And I totally agree about cheap sunglasses-- they're the one thing I lose all the time. So, I can't spend more than $20 on a pair!! Haha.

This is my first visit to Undercover Blonde - loved it. I want to be wearing one of those maxi dresses, sitting on a balcony looking out at blue water (exactly like where Cat is), drinking that frozen drink and reading that awesome looking book!
