Project organization will soon be underway. After moving around so much, accumulating so many things over the course of my travels, then moving back home with Kyle, there is just much too much stuff in these three small rooms I call my own. It’s overwhelming to have so much stuff! I know I am blessed to have to — so blessed — but I don’t know what to do with it! Do you have any suggestions for organization?! If so, please share! I will be chronicling my organizational endeavors over the course of my spring break — a perfect time for spring cleaning, I hope! Let me know if you have any advice! It is much needed.

STYLE FILE: the final hours of 21

image


So I’ve been meaning to starting doing some style posts for a while now. I like the idea of capturing my everyday style — I will never again be in my twenties; I won’t work in and style for a retail store forever (I hope), and after college, I may not get to style outfits ever again besides my own…which would be very sad. I really enjoy the styling I do for my current job. I work in a women’s resale shop at the moment, so I get to buy and sell name brand clothes that I normally would not be able to afford as a broke college student. I do a lot of styling for them, too; it’s surprising how much I enjoy it. I am a certified buyer there, which means I get to pick and choose what our inventory needs to be on a daily basis. I love my job even though it’s not journalism-related at all. But it is style related…admittedly, I am obsessed with style. Not necessarily fashion, though I do love fashion, but the individual styling of a person. Their fashion sense. Their sense of style. Each and every person has their own unique style. I think that is just so fun. There’s something so free spirited about style; I think that’s why I love styling so much! Anyway, what better time in my life to showcase my own personal style than now?! I also have just teamed up with Modcloth…something I am beyond thrilled about! So here we go…a few snapshots of the outfit I wore today, during my final hours of being 21! My birthday is tomorrow, so check back for a (hopefully) very fun birthday outfit! Here’s what I wore today. The details will be listed at the end of the post. More to come!

Also, say hello to some of my pets! Our Golden Retriever is named Violet, the white, fully bichon is Gigi and the black cat is Gatsby! I think they make great accessories!

Cardigan: J.Crew
Top: Loft
Pants: Madewell
Necklace: Forever 21
Shoes: Toms
Lipstick: Covergirl, Flame

I’m currently obsessed with bright colors — especially on rainy days like today was. Red lipstick is sort of a staple for me…it perks up even the most tired of faces and is such a classic look. What do you love to wear right now? Do you have any favorite trends or looks you can’t live without? Any trends I should try? Let me know in the comments section below! 

Coming Soon: A Fresh Take on Feminine

image

I created this space for a woman in-between stages in her life: maybe she is about to graduate college (like me), just moved into a new apartment or is just spending a lot of time dreaming about her future. This is a blog where indecision and taking your time is encouraged and any dreamer is welcome. My hope is to showcase real women who are living their dreams, flaunt unique style rather than high fashion, and embrace the little things in life like a fun craft or a good read as I navigate my own personal “in-between.”

This blog will include interviews with women who are living their dreams — whether that means building their dream careers, making a home for their families and everything in between. It will also explore different forms and definitions of feminism and femininity and what being a female looks like for the modern woman.
