What I Packed On My Cruise


 Our cruise was a blast! But I have to admit, with all the bad press cruises have gotten recently, I was a little nervous. Did any of you watch this? I'm not gonna lie it freaked me out a little. But just in case we were to get stranded out to sea I made sure to pack some fun stuff.


If you follow me on instagram (@kirstenkrason) you got a peak into my suitcase a couple of weeks ago.

The stores are starting to carry a few select summer/spring items but not a ton so it was somewhat difficult getting ready for our trip. Plus since I was hugely pregnant last summer my "warm-weather" wardrobe is severely suffering. Here are a few of the pretties I managed to get for our cruise.


First of all I love these peep toe neon jelly shoes from Forever 21. They are super comfy and oh so bright. 


I usually take my diaper bag as my carry-on but since this was a "kids-free" trip I didn't have it. I bought this duffel bag at Forever 21 two weeks ago and I LOVE it. It's such a great size. I wish I'd bought it years ago. 


I saw this cute shirt on Brickyard Buffalo a few weeks ago and I snatched it up. I know neon was the big thing last spring but I'm hoping it's around for at least another season. 

Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a swim cover up this time of year? Let me tell you I had to do some searching. I finally grabbed this ruffle maxi cover up from Target. It's really lightweight and I feel like the navy and white stripes are very "cruise" fitting. 


I bought this lightweight scarf at Forever 21. I didn't have room to pack a ton of outfits so this scarf enabled me to change up my look pretty easily. 


Cruises are wonderful because you are completely unplugged from the world. I used that as an excuse to catch up on some reading. I've been wanting to read the book,Blog, Inc. for awhile now so I bought it just for the trip!  


I also read,The Fault in Our Stars by John Green which was a great read! Have any of you read it? 

Our trip was fun but I'm so glad to be back. I just need to get through the mounds of laundry that are waiting for me and SO much unpacking still to do...

    1. It's actually not a sweater just a shirt. It's also from F21. Gosh I sure am loving that store lately aren't I!

  3. Those are some great Forever 21 finds!! I always have a hard time at that store because it's such a MESS! So much easier to shop them online. I've heard of John Green's book- glad you liked it! I might be adding to my to-read list. Haven't heard of Blog, Inc. but I'm going to go check it out!!

    Just started following you on Instagram :) Happy you had such a great cruise!!!

    1. I brought two. One is from F21 (the black and white one) but I can't seem to find it anywhere on their website so I'm not sure if they have it anymore. The other one I made... maybe one of these days I'll get around to writing a post about it :)

    1. Michelle, I really loved it. But books about business and social media are always my favorite reads.

  6. I'm echoing mckinneyMom's comment. I want to know about the headbands/scarves. Your hair looked so cute. Mine always looks like a wind-blown mess on the beach.
