Dressing Room Dreams

I've always thought it'd be interesting to do a closet tour on my blog. However, my closet is in no shape to photographed at the moment (it looks like it encountered a merciless tornado). Maybe one of these days I'll get around to doing that. For now, I thought I'd unleash all of my dream dressing room aspirations instead via vision board.

As much as I would appreciate the idea of having a sleek, minimal dressing room, I know that's not where my desire truly lies. There's a comfort in a moderate amount of clutter when it comes to dressing room. Mixing patterns and designs with furniture catches my eye while inspiring me to do the same with my outfits.  I love the idea of have multiple hand jewelry holders on the wall and hanging lights like the ones from Arhaus since a dressing room with high quality lighting is a must. My personal goal one day is to have a wall dedicated to these hand holders inspired like that scene in Labyrinth with the "helping hands." Not sure why I've always found the "hand wall" aesthetically pleasing but hey- all of those hands would display my jewelry collection nicely. Just like the jewels, all of my boots would need a nice home. A DIY shoe holder like the one below would do the trick. Plus, any kind of DIY project, especially made from recycled material, I' m all about. And if I'm short on space with my shoes (which I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case), I can always stick a few extra parts on the shelf of this wardrobe. Throw all of these pieces together and my dressing room dreams will come true.✨

Birthday Song

My first and last palindrome birthday occurred a few days ago on 7/13/17. What's even weirder is that I turned 22 (also a palindrome). I wonder if that's a strange sign of good luck..? Speaking of signs, I couldn't resit adding my Cancerian earrings to this flower child get-up. What makes it more fitting is that admittedly I can get a *tad* bit crabby on my birthday (I've never been a big bday person for some strange reason). Despite my natural preference to hideaway from the outside world every July 13th, I never want to take the gift of living another year for granted. There's a vibrancy that comes from stepping aside the constant chaos that fills your mind and submerging yourself in gratitude for your loved ones along with all of the other lovely parts of life. I'm honing in on that energy to the best of my abilities, taking a break from wearing mostly black all summer and introducing some color into my outfits again. Cheers to the year of the palindrome 

"Just because I am a certain age
Doesn't mean that I am any older
Than I was yesterday"

Observations

Forcing myself out of hibernation this time of year isn't the easiest task. The summer sun sucks the life out of me if I'm being honest. Luckily, there are two things that restore my energy: cute clothes and flowers (oh and coffee too, but sadly I had none to show here). My summer wardrobe has been straying away, but not completely abandoning, brighter patterns. In lieu of light colored floral and aztec prints, darker pieces with a pop of color like this Banggood t-shirt dress serve as a preferred summer staple. Whenever I see brush strokes on clothing I feel weirdly at ease for some reason. It's as if my mind completely separates itself from all of the superficial, commercial aspects surrounding fashion and I just appreciate the article of clothing for what it is: wearable art.
