I think I can speak for everyone when I say that last week was a doozy. Man, was it rough. In my personal life, all I really had to deal with was a grain beetle infestation (ugh.), but the news was full of one awful thing after another. It was a hard week. I got sucked in, internalized too much, and didn't figure out why I was feeling so crummy until three quarters of the way through the week. Fortunately, once I figured out WHY I was feeling so awful, I got to talk it out over nachos with an awesome friend of mine. So that was really nice.
In other, less depressing news, I'm taking a class right now called Change One Room, Change Your Life, which is being taught by amazingly talented friend, Hollis. I'm two weeks into the three week course and am feeling so inspired! I'm going to be tackling my living room, so I've been spending hours poring over inspirational photos and furniture websites as well as rearranging my furniture to finish getting my plan in place. If you're in the Seattle area and looking to redecorate any rooms in your house, I would highly recommend this class Hollis will be teaching it again starting in September, and if you're interesting in signing up you can register here.
Other than spending a lot of my weekend rearranging furniture and looking at couches, I had brunch with a friend, hit up the farmers market, and hung out with Katie! Katie and I have both recently cleaned out our closets, so we gathered up a bunch of our clothes to sell at Buffalo Exchange. I did quite well, which I attest to the outfit I wore, which you can see above. Seriously, I feel like when the buyers like your style they buy way more of your stuff!
This dress is absolutely my new favorite. I picked it up at Trove Vintage in Ballard earlier in the week before seeing Guardians of the Galaxy (which was great, btw). I instantly fell in love with the print, but the style was not necessarily love at first sight. When I put on the dress, I actually laughed out loud at the Judy Jetson-esque shoulder detail on this puppy. See that stitching details on the shoulders? Yea, that's the shoulder pieces folded in half. They were huge!!!! Fortunately, I saw a spark of hope for this dreamy dress, folded the shoulder pieces, and knew I could tack them into place to make it the cutest dress ever! Now that it's fixed up, I don't think this dress will be worn less than twice a week for the rest of the summer.
So that's my report! Did you guys get up to anything fun over the weekend?
