Casual Day and a Linkup

12:00 AM

Sweater:  INC (thanks Mom!) // Pants:  Banana Republic // Boots:  Old

It’s hump day!  We are almost at Friday, ok well maybe not almost but we are halfway there!  It’s also the first day of February.  How excited are we that the first month of 2017 is done?  I feel like the first month is always the worst because of getting back on track after the holidays and having to take down Christmas decorations which make the home more cozy feeling during these cold months.  I actually JUST took down my decorations this past weekend.  It was a mix of not wanting to and not having time to (but mostly because I didn’t want to lol).  It just made the apartment more cheerful and I love the holidays now that I no longer work in retail.

I was super excited when I finally found these boots.  They have been sitting in storage because when I moved out of my parent’s house I just kind of stuffed all of my extra stuff into the storage unit not thinking, hey I might actually need some of this stuff.  Well, let’s just say between my stuff and the boyfriend’s stuff after almost a year the storage unit is full and all around where I park in the garage is full.  I guess you can say we kind of built a barrier so if someone moves in upstairs they know that’s our side haha.  That kind of reminds me of when I was younger with my brother and we would say here’s the line that’s your side and this is my side DON’T cross it lol.  My brother (who is almost 6 years younger) tested my patience every time.  Let’s just say he had me as a sister because I was a pretty calm older sister compared to the horror stories I’ve heard from friends with siblings haha.

Now moving on to the top clicked on from last week!

  11. What wonderful clothes! The coat is gorgeous, but what fascinated me the most was the combination of red skinny riding pants with OTK boots. Simply sensational. It's my style. You in Texas and I in Rio Grande do Sul: two rural and traditional states, zealous for their customs and history.
