What I Wore to Furniture Shop

I won’t lie, I almost always have the house on the brain these days. There’s something about home ownership that turns you (at least at first) into a walking, talking house encyclopedia. Drainage, refinishing, voltage and a myriad of other terms have been more frequently used in my vocabulary as of late. And as one of my friends told me, I have house brain, so any typos or mistakes I make on social media or the blog are forgiven. With that said, I still haven’t lost my love for fashion and sharing my latest #OOTD though!

Now that summer is officially here, and temperatures are on the rise, it’s all about staying cool! This past weekend hit 95 degrees, and I basically felt like I was melting. With a handful of hot days a year here, I always feel poorly equipped (fashion and life wise!) to deal with the heat. My friend Lisa had her bridal shower on Saturday, so finding something appropriate for the occasion, summer-ready, and comfortable for a shopping adventure afterward were key.

A Feminine Midcentury Office Reveal

If I’m honest, I was most excited to move into our house so I could finally have my own office space. Dave and I are both busy with our hobbies (and of course, each requires quite a bit of space!) which means that having our offices eliminated was the worst part of our previous temporary digs. It also was the most difficult feature to find in a house. Having dedicated office space is somewhat unusual in the Seattle market, let alone two. When we found our home, we were thrilled that not only was there a dedicated office, there were also plenty of rooms that could be easily converted into an office for me.

Obviously having a house itself is pretty cool, but this introvert likes her personal space. With blogging and vlogging as a huge part of my life, it comes with a unique set of challenges, and a significant amount of stuff.

A Feminine Midcentury Office Reveal

I spent the weekend after we moved in attempting to organize my office. What I learned is that I have a ridiculous amount of stuff, and storing it is not the easiest thing in the world. I also learned that I was unprepared to have such a large space! My decor from my previous office was lacking for an entire room, so I set off to find a few things to give the room some character. Fortunately, my friends at Fred Meyer were willing to be a part of our home journey, and I was able to find some amazing home pieces at my local store to customize my space.

Today I thought I’d share what I’ve been working on in my office – including how I shopped for each item and the process of putting some of the final touches on my office. Throughout this process, I’ve also gathered some advice that I wish I had when I started this project! If that sounds like something you’re in to, then just keep reading.

Stitch Fix June 2017

I know it’s been a little quiet around here, but if you caught my last post on home ownership, then you might have figured out that this past month has been a little bit overwhelming. So much so that I think I’ve now come down with a summer cold because of it. Stress doesn’t do a body good, and if there’s anything I’m not the best at handling, it’s too many things at once. Oops.

There are some things in life that I welcome though, and lately it’s been routine. I was so excited to receive my monthly Stitch Fix shipment in early June and wanted to share it with you today. Now that we have some space in our house to take photos, I snapped some inside this time around. Let me know in the comments if you prefer the indoor or outdoor shots better! ;)

Stitch Fix June 2017 Review

For a $20 styling fee, receive a box on your doorstep containing five items – anything from clothing to jewelry to handbags to shoes based on your style profile and Pinterest style board. Send back what you don’t like, keep what you do, and your $20 styling fee will be deducted from the total. Keep all five items and receive an additional 25% off. Stitch Fix also is now serving male clients too! Have a significant other or male relative in need of some shopping assistance? Send them over to Stitch Fix Men! It works the same way, and it’s perfect for the man in your life because let’s be honest, most men hate shopping!

Stitch Fix also offers maternity and petite sizing, and plus sizes have finally made their debut as well. Stitch Fix is now offering over 90 brands for Plus Size clients in sizes 1X-3X or 14W-24W depending on the brand. Brands include ELOQUII, Junarosa, Slink Jeans, and more. You can sign up for Stitch Fix Plus here.

This time around, I asked for a vacation themed fix. I asked for soft knits and items that could be packed into a carry on without wrinkling. We have a short trip later this month and I always love bringing something new with me! And now with all the details out of the way, onto what came in my June Stitch Fix!

Lessons in Home Ownership (So Far)

Well, we’re about one month into home ownership, and already the word to describe it is “adventure.” We knew when buying a home that was built in 1965 we would probably discover quirks and unexpected things, and so far, that has definitely been true. I thought I’d give a little life update today about what’s been going on and why I’ve been a little MIA on the blog this week.

Lessons in Home Ownership (So Far)

And before I get into exactly what’s going on, let me say this: I am beyond grateful that we 1. found a home we love, and 2. are able to financially afford it and be able to make all of it work regardless of what happens. I can’t imagine what it would be like if we were strapped for cash, and that’s why I think it’s really important to have a long hard look at your finances before you decide to move forward with buying a house, no matter where you are at in the process. It sucks to give up on a dream of a magical house that’s outside of your budget, but at the same time, I’m glad we ended up buying in a slightly lower price point than we initially thought. It’s made all of what I’m going to tell you about that much less stressful. ;)

My Night Time Routine with Olay

You know what my favorite thing to do after a long, busy day is? Taking off my makeup! There’s something so refreshing about taking a load off, lathering up, and getting every last but if makeup off my skin. It’s funny how much one simple part of my night time routine can put me in a different, more relaxed mindset!

My Night Time Routine with Olay

When it comes to unwinding after a long day, I don’t always maintain the exact same schedule, but I do try to stick to a general routine. It helps me feel like I’m more in control of my schedule, and especially during stressful times, this gives me the structure and normalcy that I crave. For me, it means sticking to the basics and planning for the next day ahead. I thought it would be fun to share what my average nightly routine looks like with you today!
