FEATURE | Nº 7.

Please don't hate me for making the following lousy excuse: staying in small town = not often in the mood for outfit posts. I'm not really dressing normally nor interestingly in the slightest, this summer season. The statement sounds ridiculous, but "normal" for when I'm going to uni in the city is a lot different than "normal" for when I'm staying in grandma's town with their one Walmart and horse ranches. I tend to keep on the Abercrombie sweats and slip-on Macbeths, sloppy ponytails in tow. And in between the reading, family time, and apartment shopping I just can't seem to gather the creativity for any diys. Plus, my grandmother's sewing machine loathes me. I'd show you the pillow to prove it, but the garbage man took it.

But speaking of apartment shopping (sort of, not truly...bad transition, apologies) I am only too excited to start decorating. I was flipping through June's issue of Elle and found the article on Victoria Secret model Jessica Stam's revamped apartment. That + hgtv = inspiration galore. Greys and blacks and dark brasses, with a black-blue bunny pelt here, a 32" lcd sony flat screen there, vintage trunk beneath the bed... all I need now are a pair of alligator flats and a cat named Cat... (I've had a lot of time to watch and re-watch Breakfast at Tiffany's)

So since I'm already jumping all over the place and am not readily supplied with apartment inspiration photos, I shall post a couple hot shots of the sexy Jessica Stam, instead.

  4. Jessie!! Whatsup! Man I totally know how you feel living in the middle of nowhere and how out of place a 'city' outfit would look. But hey, bf jeans & sweats can look jus as good :)

    Oh and about the naval ring! It's a funny story actually, Im still wearing the same one that i picked out when i got it pierced because I've never bn able to take it out!! I think its from swimming in salt water etc its completely clamped up, my bf has threatened to cut it off with bolt cutters but heck i think im safer leaving it in!!

    Please please do more outfit posts soon, you're beautiful x

  7. Summer is making me incredibly sartorially lazy, too! No worries. If I'm not swimming, I'm literally sitting in front of the fridge in a ratty old t-shirt, eating ice cream with my roommates. And I wish I could make my apartment look that chic, sleek, and modern. Now, it just looks like a college kid decorate it (which is the truth).
