DISTRESSED JEANS + SLOUCHY SWEATER
Hey there, friends! Happy Tuesday! Are y’all heading back to work today? It’s so crazy how fast the holidays come and go! My roommate took today off because her movers are coming to move her stuff over to her new apartment. I left early this morning because I had scheduled Fish to get a dental – his breath literally smells like his name; it’s so bad! – and she had boxed up so much more stuff after I went to bed last night. Change is such a bummer sometimes! It can also be exciting so I’m trying to keep my eye on the silver lining.
Question for you guys …. have you ever gotten rid of a HUGE TV? I have a 55″ Panasonic TV in our living room that is almost 8 years old. My Dad told me two years ago, when we moved into our place and he donated it to us, it was going to die at some point in the next year. I took it anyway because, I mean, TV’s aren’t cheap and I was about to buy a couch and a new bedroom furniture set. It’s been great but now we have to turn the volume up so loud to hear it so I know it’s going to be done for soon. Since Kristan is moving out and taking the TV stand, I figured it’d be a good time for me to get rid of it and get a new one. Plus that one is super heavy and so hard to move. Anyway, any suggestions on how to get rid of it? I live in an apartment complex so I can’t just leave it outside, you know?
A couple weeks ago, I wore this outfit [minus the heels because I didn’t leave my house that day] and posted this Instagram. It was the coziest outfit to wear around the house to get my unpacking done. I know bralettes have been a thing for a long time but I’m just now getting into them. I bought this one from Free People last year and rediscovered it in my lingerie chest after I got back, and I can’t stop wearing them. They’re so comfortable and a great option to wear under sweaters like this that, when not being worn off the shoulder, are a little low in the front. Sorry it isn’t available it the color I’m wearing anymore! Hope you like this similar option. These jeans are a favorite of mine – y’all have seen them many times – and felt the need to get a brand new pair being that these have been washed so many times.
Being that Kristan is moving out … I am in full on home decor mode! I need a TV stand, coffee table, a new desk, a bookshelf with organizer drawers for files to go in my office, and I’m really wanting a smaller sectional with some chairs in the living room instead of the HUGE one I have there now. I also want to change up the area I have the bar cart. Lots of changes! Obviously it can’t all happen right. this. second! Buying furniture and redecorating is expensive, for one, and it’s also super time consuming to find the pieces that work best for the area you’re in and for your personal needs, in general. I have found and purchased a few pieces that I’m waiting to receive. But … you know how that goes. I don’t think I’ll be getting my TV stand until the end of January so no living room TV time for me for awhile! Ha! And I can’t … for the life of me … decide on a coffee table. I’m so impatient with these things ha … I just want it to be done!
Anyone else redecorating? I have found so many cute pieces for around the house during my online search for what I need around my home. Would y’all be interested in a home decor post? I could keep it to items under $250, and obviously make sure to represent different price points. Let me know if you’re interested in that!
Alright, I need to stop rambling! Y’all have a great day back to work! Appreciate you stopping by today! xo.
