The Last of Summer


With all of the fall styles in store and magazines, I am really trying to hang on to the last of Summer.  I feel like I only did half of what I wanted to do this Summer, so the thought of it almost being gone is extremely depressing.  One of my favorite things to do when the seasons are about to change is go shop the sale racks.  I was able to snag this dress for $15 (originally priced at $34).  Yes, I may not be able to wear it much this year, but I don't really think this dress is a trendy piece, so I will definitely wear it next summer. 


Dress: Old Navy (on major sale!), Similar, Cute Option, Love This
Clutch: Jcrew, Cute Option, Want this one
Bracelets: Jcrew Factory, Similar, , Love this, F21, Cute Option
Rings: H&M, Kendra Scott

Have a wonderful week!

Wine, Maxi, and a Birthday


 

Yes, I'm drinking wine on my blog today, and that's because it's my birthday, I get to do what I want... kind of.  I have always disliked the years my birthday falls on a Monday, and I think I dislike those years even more now.  At this point in my life somethings are a little more important that a free-for-all on my big day, like a big-girl job.  

In all honesty, I am really okay with lying low, 24 is just not all that excited and Bryan and I bought a house less than a month ago.  A new home is so much more than anything I could have asked for.  Plus, how cute is our new little bistro table?  My mom knew we needed/wanted a little seating area outside and boy, was she right; the entrance looks so much more welcoming now.


Necklace: Forever 21, Similar, Love this one
Rings: Kohl's, Forever 21, Want this one
Clutch: Old, Similar, Similar, Dying over this one

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely week!

Easy Boho


Happy Monday, I am starting off the week with an outfit post! I know, it has been awhile, but I finally feel like we are getting settled with the new place.  To be honest, lately I have been wearing my lazy clothes on the weekends, because it just doesn't make sense to dress cute when we are moving and organizing things in the house.  But over the weekend I grabbed sushi with one of my girlfriends and wore this adorable and majorly comfy top.  

In other news, we found a washer and dryer on Craigslist, the set was only $260!  I absolutely love Craigslist and if you are unsure about it, you have to watch this documentary.  These are the first blog photos in our new neighborhood, isn't it gorgeous!?!


Thanks for stopping by!

We Have Officially Moved!

 

I have been all over the place with blogging lately, absolutely zero consistency.  But I feel like I get a pass, because last weekend we closed on our first house and moved in!  One word that comes to mind: hectic.  Not just the move, but the entire home buying process.

We upgraded the bed and along with that comes new bedding; it's so light, yet cozy at the same time.

Weekend Go-To


Hello ladies! I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  I love a week that is full of meetings, presentations, and projects.  Monday I finished the Dale Carnegie class, it was such a bittersweet night.  I met the most wonderful people, heard the most inspirational stories, and learned so much over a short eight week period.  I highly recommend this course for those of you looking to further your career, especially if your work involves any type of public speaking.

Onto the outfit... once again I wore a maxi last weekend.  I need a maxi-vention, I'm addicted.  

Dress: Old Navy, Similar, Great Option
Bracelets: Target, F21, Charming Charlie's
Earrings: Jane, Similar, Cute Option
Sandals: American Eagle, Similar, Loves These

Have a productive week friends!

Saturday Bryan and took our first ever trip to Ikea!  We had a blast and ended up leaving with a few things.  We got the white dresser above as well as these fun chairs.  I also ordered these nightstands from target (on super sale!) a few weeks back.  They came in fully assembled!  I am just a little bit excited to move :)

Thanks for stopping by, to follow along with my home inspiration follow my "Home sweet home" board on Pinterest.

Long time now blog, right?!  They are not kidding when they say buying a house is a process.  So much paperwork!!  Well, I guess now it's called paperless-paperwork.  Here is the house update - the inspection is complete and went very well.  The resolution period ended last week and the appraisal was finalized this week.  Our close date is set for the 25th!  We are making our first ever IKEA trip this weekend, I hear this requires a lot of coffee and patience.

Scallops + Romper = Perfection


Just like dresses, I adore rompers... maybe not as much as dresses, but it's a close second.  I love that you pretty much only have to think about your shoes and accessories, deep down I'm a simple girl.  When it comes to rompers I have had great luck finding affordable and adorable options at TJ Maxx.  This one is by the brand Everly and was on clearance for $10.  I absolutely love the scallops and the back is gorgeous.  



Romper: TJ Maxx (lucky find), Similar (Obsessed with the back) , Love this, Great option
Wedges: Victoria's Secret (old), Similar, Cute Option, Craving these
Necklace: Forever 21, Similar, Similar, Love this
