Ok, so a little non-fashion update from me: Adrian and I took a big step forward in home furnishing today! Even though we moved into our new place at the end of May last year, our condo is still very much under-furnished. I blame the fact that Adrian and I are super picky about decorating our
place. It’s our first real place together and we want to make it just
Something that really bothered me, though, was actually how barren our front door / entryway looked. If you’re walking down the sidewalk of the complex to get to our little unit, you’ll notice that every unit has some sort of decoration outside of their front door. That is, until you get to our place. Not even a doormat. But today, Adrian and I decided we were going to put some plants on either side of the front door. I can’t even keep track of all the furniture stores and the nurseries we visited to finally figure out the exact right floral combination. But now, we have two nice little wax leaf privets (pruned to be in the shape of a ball) each sitting in a black Avalon Square Planter. I’m so overjoyed just looking at it that I can forgive the fact that I have mud now underneath every single one of my fingernails. It’s a small price to pay for front-door beauty. Now, I just gotta find a doormat we both like. 🙂
Now for fashion news: I will admit that I’m in love with this fun skirt. I bought it a couple years ago on a whim when it was on sale at Express for $12. The color was a little shockingly bright for me at the time (not to mention the fact that the pattern kinda reminded me of cow spots), but now I’m over being scurred of bright colors (even neons!) and am totally in love with it. Did I mention that it was like a little ray of sunshine into my busy Sunday and totally brought a spring to my step? Twelve dollars for that kind of happiness? Priceless.
Now to clean the mud off me… 😉
