some exciting news!
Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’ve been so busy running around making decisions because – surprise! – Kyle and I are building a house! We are so excited to jump into this project together. While we’ve always loved working together to DIY things, this is definitely the biggest project we have taken on. I’m personally super excited to have something that is completely tailored to our tastes. Everything we decide on helps customize our home to us, and let me tell you, there are a TON of decisions. Because of this, I’ve been a bit behind on blog posts lately. It’s easy enough to post to Instagram but I haven’t had a chance to actually sit down and write out something meaningful. I promise that going forward, I’ll try to be more strict with myself! I love doing it, it’s just a matter of finding time to do so.
Onto the outfit! I recently bought these fringed sandals from ASOS and man, I am super happy with them. The quality is amazing! I was worried that the flatness of the shoe would make them uncomfortable but I was proved wrong as soon as I unpacked them. The material is soft and they mould to your feet as you walk. They’ve been a go-to the past couple weeks. One thing I will say is protect them with a leather protector (as they are real suede). One of the tassels that wrap around your ankle has gotten a little dusty looking because they drag on the ground when you walk, so it’s better to protect them before they get dirty so you can clean them when they inevitably do. 🙂
The bralette I purchased from Urban Outfitters has also been getting a lot of use lately, especially under tops that are loose and fall a bit lower on my frame. Not only is it super comfy but it adds a little drama to any look. And any time I can wear a bralette over a real bra, I will, because they are just so dang comfy.
Finally, the top and shorts are from Forever 21 from a while back. I am a sucker for anything shiny and this top was a must-have as soon as I saw it in the store. I believe it’s a size medium, hence why it probably falls a little lower on my body, but they didn’t have a small and I figured I could use it to layer with (as I ended up doing with the bralette). Yay for outfits that actually turn out the way you envisioned!!
