My Favs on Thursdays

It's Thursday, the day Katy, Meghan and I all share one of our FAV things of the week. Want to join in the fun? Just whip up a post, and add it to the link up below! 

It's October, and that means after a few months of planning, it's trip month! We are headed to Disney World in just under 25 days. 

If you read this blog or know anything about me you know that I am a planner. Especially when it comes to trips. I have lists for days, and I have to hold myself back from starting to pack when I get to the 30 day mark of a trip.

Hello, my name is Nicole and I have a problem. 

I am also a recovering over-packer, like 10 different outfits for a 2 day trip kind of over-packing. So the past few trips I have really tried hard to pack only what I need. The best way to do this is have an outfit plan. I plan the day, then assess my needs, then lay it out (sometimes try it on) and finally write down every needed piece on my packing list (see my OCD problem) that way I don't forget anything and I am not stressed out when packing up. 

This year we are headed to Disney World. (insert all the happy emotions) I made this cute pocket-tee to take along, Urban South Designs sent me a super cute shirt, and of course I will be bringing along some Happily Ever Tees too. Now I just have to match shorts, skirts or leggings with all of those and I will be all set!

The one thing I don't have to worry adding to my outfit plan, is the earrings. Juniper and Ivy sent me the cutest pair of earrings I plan on wearing everyday! (disclaimer: Juniper and Ivy provided these earrings for my review, but all opinions are my own) 

Minnie & Mickey Earrings
I am not a dangly earrings girl, so these are already right up my alley. Add the mix and match style of the Minnie and Mickey and these are so perfect. They are made from laser-cut wood (and they are made from real Alder wood that is sustainably sourced in the USA) and have hypoallergenic posts.

I love that the studs are so light, you almost forget they are on. Not to mention, I have VERY sensitive ears (usually sterling only) so I was a little nervous. But I wore them for a few days and never had an issue.

They come all boxed up and ready for gift giving (or as a gift you can give yourself!) Be sure to follow them on Instagram @juniperandivydesigns for coupon codes and to see all for their new products!

Also, Juniper and Ivy are so awesome that they are giving a pair of their super cute earrings away to a Designs by Nicolina reader. We have a HUGE giveaway coming that you don't want to miss at the end of this month.


  1. Cuteeeeeee. The only thing about trying to not over pack for Disney is the fact that you experience so many seasons within a week, sometimes a day even.

  2. That is so true! Layers are my friend, and also the ability to do laundry!

  3. I'm not a dangly earring girl either. Except in fancy situations where you need a little ear bling. I love these. They're sweet and understated.
