I know just about everyone is feeling this way but where did this Summer go? I seriously cannot believe it is the end of August already. This past weekend my in laws were in town and between looking at houses, going out to dinner, and catching up…..it was Sunday night at 9pm and I was zapped of creative energy. House hunting in the market we live in right now is pretty tough. There is such a small area that everyone wants to live in and it has really driven the market to unrealistic price points. I go back and forth between pining away for a new space to relishing in our condo and the fact I can save like crazy. I’m not going to lie though……when I see his and her closets it almost makes me want to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the rest of my life just to be able to afford the mortgage. When the right one comes along it will all work out for now, I am utilizing the space underneath our dining room table for storage.
Let’s talk about my new brand love. If you remember from this post last week, I highlighted some new brands on my horizon. I am extremely fortunate to live near a city that has really embraced the arts and wall mural movement. I spend a lot of time researching the newest works. Drive a trial run so I know where it is therefore Mark doesn’t lose his mind when I’m driving around for an hour trying to find it. Then, coordinating my looks to them. Someone on my Instagram last week commented that my pictures look like art and that was the biggest compliment. A lot of planning does go into it (in between you know like everything else I do on a daily basis). When I saw this latest piece by Chad Mize and with my new pieces from Moon River, it was a perfect 70’s match.
This crop sweater seriously goes with everything. I ordered it in a small and it fits perfectly. It has an elastic band around the bottom to help keep it in place. Whenever I see denim skirts it makes me think of the tiny micro mini skirts I used to wear in college and it makes me shudder. However, this longer button up version is something I can totally get behind. The best part it is under $25!
