Hey Dandies! It's been a while -- I know. But guess what? I'M MOVING! I feel like moving has become an annual pain in the butt since I graduated University, but that's life of a post-grad that lives in rentals I guess.
I'm not leaving the city. And I'm not leaving my job. I'm just slowly (painfully slowly) moving up a little bit in the world of young-adulthood-ness. I'm moving into an apartment just up the street with more closet space and a balcony -- SWOOOON!
For those young professionals and recent graduates, let me tell you the truth about life: when you graduate (unless your parents gave birth to you on a golden platter and then shoved a silver spoon in your mouth) you are POOR. Like, so painfully broke. One could call it 'poverty-stricken' if they wanted to get dramatic (and I DO get dramatic). Picture this: You're eager for your first REAL job, but all you can get is minimum wage retail positions, you're burdened with student debt, and -oh- you want to live on your own? Big City = Big Rent for a tiny cupboard-like apartment.
Anyway, this past year I've been living in said 'tiny cupboard-like apartment'. And, though it's been a cute time, I have been suffering. I didn't have enough room to get a desk, so sitting down to get in a REAL mood to write and blog has been difficult this past year. I'm not really a bed-typer. And don't even get me started on what the closet space has been like. Oh, and what air conditioning? I felt like krissychula every damn night.
Needless to say, I am SO excited to move. If you follow me on Pinterest, you'll notice how obsessed I've been with 'Decor Ideas' and 'Home DIYs'...omg...so...darned...excited!! I mentioned in my last post that I'm starting to venture into YouTube land. I think in addition to styling videos, I might start doing some home decor videos, too! I have all of these elaborate decor ideas in my head, and I don't want to get lazy and stop myself from actually doing them; I finally want to have a home that feels like a HOME; a space that I want to live in. Documenting my decor ventures and uploading it to YouTube might just be the thing I need to keep me on track and motivated! NEVER STOP CREATING!
In other news, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks. This only means one thing: Fall is upon us. I've never been more excited for fall style. You didn't think I would deprive you completely of any style-related content did you? Here are some of the looks I am completely taken by for Fall 2013.
5 Looks for Fall 2013
1. Grunge. I've always loved this bad-ass look. According to style reports, looking like a bad-ass is back in for Fall, but then again was it ever 'out'? Looking cool...is always cool. I'm on the hunt for a new pair of seriously bad-ass combat boots! Should I say it again? Bad. Ass. (..how dare I.)
3. This Look. Everything about it. It is the perfect transitional outfit. It's warm, it's cool - it's everything. Cropped pants, dolman sleeves and scarves. I'm in.
4. Emma Stone. I just, like, love her --okay?! But basically: great fitting dark skinnies, flats, and the perfect mid-length jacket. So simple. So effortlessly put-together. Do it.
What looks are you excited to wear for Fall 2013? And let me know if you've moved recently! Any decor ideas? Moving tips? Leave comments please! :)
