Sometimes I Can't Believe It I'm Movin' Past The Feeling

Top and bracelets: Forever 21; Skirt: Joppa; Sandals: Urban Outfitters; Necklace: Fair Vendor


My Little Jeans - The Suburbs (Cover)


I've got to tell you that I'm not one who normally likes to wear bold print. This is partially due to the fact that I feel like wearing bottoms with loud print brings all the wrong type of attention to areas in which I'd rather not draw attention to (ie: hips that don't lie and excess junk in the trunk). But, when I saw this maxi skirt hanging on the racks, I knew I just had to try it on, and it's no secret that it made its way home with me. One of my favorite parts about it, besides the fact that it is actually figure-flattering, is its soft and comfortable fabric. It's the perfect pick for a warm summer day. I see so much potential for this maxi. I think I might even try it out as a dress one day soon... It's safe to say that this item is one of my new closet favorites. Who knew that such a bold pattern would work for me? Sometimes all it takes it just one good one to prove you wrong. In other news, I'll be moving into my new apartment this week. I am incredibly excited to start another new chapter in my life. New job, new apartment... what's next? Who knows, but I'm ready! I spent most of this weekend gawking over design blogs and looking through Apartment Therapy's archives. If any of you have some favorite interior design websites you love to frequent, please share them below! I can use all the inspiration I can get!

Wednesday's post is going to be a double decker, and a very special one, so please do come back soon! Happy Monday!

  6. I'm all for a bold print! However, most long skirts/dresses hit me at a awkward length, and are impossible for me to wear with any type of height. This print in incredibly flattering! Congrats on your new job and apartment....you should check out Jonathan Adler. Some things are pricey, but he is fantastic!
